Epic Drunk: Andre The Giant

Think you can drink? You are nothing in comparison to the drinking prowess of Andre The Giant. Even for his size, this was a man of incredible feats of alcohol consumption. Modern Drunkard Magazine has an article up about some of his exploits. Here’s a few facts from the article:

…Andre the Giant drank 7,000 calories worth of booze every day. The figure doesn’t include food. Just booze.

During trips Andre consumed beer at the incredible rate of a case every ninety minutes, with bottles of vodka or top-rate French wine thrown in for variety.

On one tour, Andre’s Japanese sponsors rewarded him with a case of expensive plum wine. Andre settled down in the back of the bus and started drinking. Four hours later, the bus arrived at the next venue, and Andre was polishing off the last bottle of wine.

The man was a monster. Great stuff if you want to rationalize your own abuse of the sauce. You can read the whole thing in it’s entirety here.

Thanks Presurfer.
