I've been training extensively for this for years.
At least half of it.

Wait, he's Canadian. Shouldn't it be the Beer Kilometer which is 3/5ths of a mile?

A Canadian drinking Budweiser?

This seems like some hashing related event.

I thought this going to have something to do with yards of beer.

Get back to me when he sets the record for the 100 yard dash.

TheShavingofOccam123: Get back to me when he sets the record for the 100 yard dash.

He did that right after the video ended.  Unfortunately the port o potty was 110 yards away.

I saw a headline calling him Canadian, but I think he's pretty much pure Californian.

I don't think I could shotgun 4 beers in 5 minutes even without the running

Where's the Hero tag???

He drank a cubic mile of beer?

(Reads TFA)

Well... It wasn't what I was thinking at all.

How do we know there really was beer in the cans?  Those shotguns were so clean with no spillage.   Other than that I can't find any fault with this record.  Impressive he didn't puke.  I'd puke just drinking 48oz of water and running a mile at 6:00.

That's an incredible time for a beer mile. Under 6 minutes is really goddamn fast.

My favorite drinking while running story. Or running while drinking. I'm not sure which but it's worth the click. v ery-mile-sf-half-marathon-13-beers-in-13-miles/

Hmm. Didn't know this was a thing. Take out the running and I'm there

I love running, and I love beer, but I don't like them together.
