While there is currently no record for beers drank in an hour, reports suggest that Andre the Giant holds the world record for the largest number of beers consumed in a single sitting.
In a segment on the WWE Classics on Demand series, “Legends of Wrestling,” late Mike Graham said the giant once drank 156 beers in one sitting — an unbelievable boast that fellow panelists Dusty Rhodes and Michaels Hayes quickly backed up. Journalist Bill Apter relayed a similar story to WWE Classics about Andre downing more than 125 beers while drinking with Harley Race in New Orleans.
Another close friend of Andre, Tim White, confirmed that the giant was more than capable of putting down enough suds and grub to feed a frat house. “He could drink an airplane dry before it got to takeoff,” White told WWE Classics. “He’d go into a restaurant and eat 12 steaks and 15 lobsters. He didn’t do that often, but if he felt like putting on a show and having some laughs, he’d go ahead and do that.”
