    Have you ever estimated the actual quantity of beer that you have consumed?

    Converting Fl OZ to Pounds isn't really accurate but for fun let's say a pint=lb.
    6 Pack=4.5lbs
    12 pack=9lbs
    A case of bottles or cans=18lbs.
    Torpedo Keg=42lbs
    Pony Keg=62lbs
    Full Kegs=124lbs

    Which beers have you bypassed your own weight in?

    If 1 pint = 1 lb, and there are 16 ounces in a pint, and 72 ounces in an average six pack, wouldn't a six pack weigh 4.5 lbs?

    High Life, probably Boston Lager, getting close with Harpoon IPA.

    Well, since most of my consumption rotates now that I'm out of college, the most likely answers would probably be Natty Ice, Pabst and maybe Genny Cream...

    Probably anything cheap and awful. Not gonna lie, as much as I enjoy actual good beer sometimes its just not affordable or accessable ( when out at a bar with slim pickings or a rock show).

    Probably Hoptimum at home and 2011 Old Crustacean at a bar. My local alehouse had the Old Crusty on for a long time and I drank the shit out of it every time I went there. Ok, maybe not my weight on the Old Crusty but I must've killed half of that guy's keg.

    As of right now I'd say Sam's Boston but FBS will probably get there some time next year when they start releasing sixers.

    I'm not in the game long enough to have consumed that much of the same (craft) beer.

    Wish I could play along, but it's Coors light for me.

    Man, when you put the weights out there like that... I've easily consumed a literal ton of Stag in my life. Most likely 2 tons.

    Something's wrong. Either I weigh too much or haven't drank enough beer but I can't think of one specific beer that I've had that would equal my present weight. If you consider a brewery's full line of beers, yes. But not just one of their beers.

    If I could magically estimate my lifetime's Coors Light consumption I would have to change the subject to "How many have drank their Vehicle's weight...". Hell, a hot summer day session of Coors Light is 16lbs. alone I still drink and enjoy Coors Light.


    2009 2 kegs os PBR=248lbs
    2009 Sierra Nevada 15+ 12'ers=270lbs
    2010 I got at least 4 ponies of Tower 10=248lbs
    2011 was 4 Ballast Point Big Eye Torpedo kegs and a low estimate 20 6packs=168+90=258lbs

    Sam Adams Boston Lager, Great Divide Rumble, Hofbrau Helles, Dry Dock Hefe/Apricot/Vanilla Porter, Copper Kettle Mexican Chocolate Stout. I’ve probably had those beers more than any others…ever.
