Like beer, but disappointed you can't drink faster? Use the awesome power of atmospheric pressure to slam down that brewski in less time than it takes to regret it!

Shot-gunning a beer adds a lot of alcohol to your system in a short amount of time, which can lead to extreme intoxication, vomiting, and/or alcohol poisoning. Be responsible when you drink.

Step 1: Hold unopened beer
Hold an unopened can of beer on its side, on your palm. If you’re up for a little competitive speed drinking, stand with your friends in a circle.

Use light beer--it goes down easier--that’s not too cold, or you’ll get a brain freeze.

Step 2: Puncture hole
Puncture a small hole that your mouth can easily fit over near the bottom of the side of the can that’s facing you.

If there isn’t a knife available, use a can opener, a pen, or a set of keys.

Step 3: Put mouth over hole
Put your mouth over the hole, and turn the can upright.

Step 4: Pop can open
When you’re ready to drink, pop the top of the can open with your free hand.

Step 5: Drink quickly
Start drinking as fast as you can. The air coming in from the opened top will force all the beer out the bottom hole very quickly--like in 3 to 5 seconds!

Step 6: Throw can on floor
Throw your can on the floor as soon as you’re finished. Even if you’re first, if beer spills out, you lose!

Did You Know?
Studies have shown that drinking beer--in moderation--can reduce a person’s chance of stroke and heart and vascular disease.
