Texas Was Robbed Of It’s Record For World’s Largest Drink Order
The Guinness Book of World Records listed it as the world's largest from 1983 - 2016.
That's when some bar in the UK beat it buying beer.
Read on to find out why I think this is BS ...
Personally, I would have written about a Texas based Whiskey and left out the water. My beer makes a perfectly fine chaser.
Anyway, when Merle played the song, he bought everyone at the bar, all 5,095 of 'em, a C C. Waterback.
The bar used around 40 gallons of whiskey for the round of drinks, and the bar tab for Merle’s massive order came out to $12,737.50 – or $2.50 each. (If he had bought the same round of drinks today it would have cost him over $40k). - whiskeyriff.com
Thankfully, the record label picked that one up.
Anyway, back to merry old England.
412 beers beat 5,095 shots?? WTH??
The answer, it seems, is that the beer order totaled over 42 gallons and Merle’s whiskey order was just under 40 gallons.
I say we go by drink count, not alcohol tonnage. This is totally grounds for another revolution.
Instead of USA vs. UK, this time it's Texas vs. Guinness.
We shall defend Merle's record whatever the cost may be; we shall fight in pubs, bars and sporting events ... beaches, lakes and backyard keggers.
We shall never surrender.
The band, The Script, bought around 8,000 drinks for the crowd at one their concerts.
That's a little more respectable, I'll accept it.
