André the Giant has successfully held the record for the most Beer consumed in a single sitting for the last 40 years. During a six-hour period back in 1976, André drank 119 standard 12 ounce brews in a pub in Pennsylvania.
Andre the Giant had surgery, but the doctors could not figure out how much anesthesia to use due to his size. They instead used Andre’s claim that “it usually takes two liters of vodka just to make me feel warm inside” as their guide.
André the Giant once drank about 16 gallons of beer on one sitting.
