Hoegaarden 5 liter beer glass

beer 5l 1

This is the (in)famous Hoegaarden 5 liter glass of beer available at Brussels Beer CafΓ©. It’s so huge, it takes no small amount of effort to even lift it. The size and girth of this “glass” is staggering! It holds 5 liters of the good stuff and it made me wonder…

…can a person drink (scull) 5 liters of beer?

I’ll just preempt you by saying it’s possible, but not recommended. You’ll live to regret it. :p

TGIF people! w00t! It’s been a super long week for me since I’ve been working my ass off. I’m thinking about paying homage to the 5 liters of goodness after work. πŸ˜‰

  1. Holy crap is right! How can u scull that whole monster glass? Faaark! I suppose thats where my RM10/- will be going into huh. How much does a 5 liter glass of the Belgian(?) liquid gold costs anyway? Only drink & drive if you are an idiot ok mate. Oh! BTW, where are the photos u promised to share with me eh? =)Have a good weekend!

  2. OMG you can hold so much beer! I’ve only seen you taking 2-3 cans in a roll but 5 liters?!! You’re awesome! Did you count the amount of your pee?

  3. Ok la 5 litres is about 10 pints, it’s very possible. During the course of a day I’ve polished off about 16 pints before…definitely not recommended though. And 100% not in a short period.
    How much does that awesome glass of beer cost.

  4. Thats one of my fav beer.. but I wont drink so much at one time. Mainly because you ll kill the taste..and mainly because I haven’yt got much liver cells to metabolise such a great amount of alcohol.

  5. any chance you can get that thing full of corsendok or chimay? Way to go man! thats a lot of beer. The belgian beer makes me feel so much better than any other nationality of beer. Its more of a high. I have never been an angry drunk off of belgian/abby style ale.
    Cheeers!

  7. Lewis Grizzard… Kind of like sam clemmonms ( mark twain)Right before he had a heart valve replacement and died he (sam) wrote “I sell a dog” well I got a dog. A little mongrel mut KINDA LIKE ME- a mix of Welsh, Scot, German, Cherokee , Afro, and Asian. They are the best, HB. I would back a ” mongrel” like me, 10 to one over a pure bred. Dog , horse, chicken, or human. Diversity makes us strong. and yes, love each other. or at least have respect.
    Right now, the little dog is burrowing into a pile of dirty clothes, and is now sound asleep. opps , now awake. Now asleep. Little does it know, it fell into the right hands. It was about to be destroyed. Gassed. He does not know, but next week, he is gonna get sniped( vasectomy) ( he is a horney young( 9 month dog)- like i used to be and get rabies and parvo shots . The damn dog is sound asleep now. I could use the money ( all told, about 300 usd) for anything else. But for some reason, I love and trust him, and he me.
    stupid thing to learn from a dog, I guess, but so be it. Humility is not my strong point. but i ave learned to shut up May God Yrueleley nBlew you, wpex pm ,npew434,. ( that is Welsh, you Know) Thanks HB, for all you do .Tom

  8. Ps, Hb, that last photo has gotta to be shopped, right? Nodody has a hand
    THAT big. ( big enough to wrap around a 2 gallon glass) Sorry to offend; but if it is true, stay away: Do not want to pay your bar tab, HB. Just kidding.

  9. Heh! I’m sorry to disappoint you my friend, that photo is not shopped. πŸ™‚
    I have rather huge palms (which didn’t turn out hairy, despite what my mom told me ;)). It took me a bit of an effort to hold it by one hand (and only can be done after the appropriate amount of liquid has been ingested – I can’t hold 5 kgs in that position). πŸ™‚
    Anyway, I just woke up not long ago, catching up on sleep weekends due to the long hours I’ve pulled last week for work. Jesus, I’m looking forward to the long Labor Day weekend. I’m heading out – will reply the comments when I come back if it’s not too late. Cheers! πŸ™‚

  10. Marlboro Guy: Hmm…I can’t remember actually. It was about RM 70++ or RM 140++ for the life of me I can’t remember which. πŸ™‚
    The Bull: Heh! I sculled it over a one hour period. It can’t be done straight, at least I can’t do it. πŸ™‚
    eiling: Haha! I didn’t but I sure felt like puking after that. 5 kgs in my stomach, not a very nice feeling. :S
    Tan Yee Hou: Hmm…yeah, true, but over a 1 hour period, it’s not that bad. πŸ™‚
    triei: Taken out of context, that would sound a bit wrong. πŸ˜‰
    cynthia: Yeah, I don’t either, but for some reason my liver always manages to pull though. Go my liver! πŸ™‚
    tzywen: You’re kidding! This is beer, so it’s around 10 cans of the 500 ml beers that you can get. πŸ™‚
    chefmel: I wanted to buy the glass but the place only has two and the third one was broken so they won’t sell it. πŸ™‚
    It’s very solid and heavy, I like.
    Choonie: I can’t recall exactly since there were two bills for that night – dinner and drinks. I think (could be wrong) it was around RM 140.
    andrew: Yeah, it is a huge amount for everyone. It needs to be drunk over a period of time with toilet breaks in between. πŸ˜‰
    Eleanor: I took about an hour or so…
    It wasn’t a 5 liter scull, that would be insane. The largest amount I’ve sculled (in one go) is 2 liters.
    lcy: Come, let’s go drink together. πŸ™‚
    tzia: Yup, that’s why I’m moderating my drinking. I didn’t drink much at all this weekend. πŸ™‚
    victor: It was quite a feat. I can scull two liters instantly (but last time I did that, I had to puke about 10 minutes later).
    fish fish: Jesus! What are you working with that requires a 5 litre receptacle? πŸ™‚
    Crash Gordon: Nope, it wasn’t taken then. LOL! Good guess though. πŸ˜‰
    shaoweii: I think it was either RM 70++ or RM 140++. I’m more inclined to believe it was the latter coz the pricing won’t be right if it’s RM 70++ and I can’t differentiate from the bills.
    justin: Hmm…I guess a lot of it would have to do with your mood when you start drinking. If you’re pissed off, you’ll be pissed when you’re pissed. πŸ˜‰
    YilingL: I doubt it, some of it was absorbed. πŸ˜‰
    meg: Yeah, that was me. I just finished work, Friday night around 11:30 pm right? I was tapau-ing stuff to eat at home coz I was damn tired.
    Michael (Mike): Yeah, I know what you mean mate. πŸ™‚
    Trey: Cheers bro! πŸ™‚
    It took no small amount of effort. πŸ˜‰
    Darren: Yup! It’s not on the menu though, you have to order it. πŸ™‚
    Chris Thoo: Yeah, tell me about it. I shared a bottle of wine prior to this too. :S
    The Bull: I was catching up on my sleep debt during the weekends. πŸ™‚
    Myhorng: I took about an hour or so and that’s coz my friends were rushing me dy. Heh!
    tom robinson: Dogs are loyal creatures, I can appreciate them for that, but for some reason I grew up liking cats. πŸ™‚
    I’m more of a cat person.
    Have a great week ahead tom! πŸ™‚
    shadowking: Hangover? Lots of fluids and some greasy food would do you wonders. Or bread, depends on the individual. Some tomatos (the fresh ones) eaten just like that does wonders as well.
    vvv: Haha! Not something to be attempted more than once. :S
    n0thingness: It was around RM 140++ I think, a bit cheaper than ordering the equivalent in pints. πŸ™‚
    tom robinson: Heh! It wasn’t my friend, I have huge palms, been told a couple of times before too. πŸ™‚
    a-bone: Very nice, with the weather we’ve been getting recently. πŸ™‚
    pm: Haha! You wanna bet? πŸ˜‰
    You buy it next time and if I can’t finish it, I’ll pay you double. πŸ™‚

  11. Cheryl: It took me an hour to finish that darned glass of beer. It’s unholy, the amount. πŸ™‚
    kennhyn: 5 pints? Lemme think back. Hmm…
    I’m pretty sure it’s 5 litres coz I’m comparing my 500 ml water with the size of the glass and 5 of those wouldn’t fill that gargantuan glass. πŸ™‚

    Reply
  12. because if this is 5 liter they it will charge u over RM200 and not RM140. http://beerbeer.org/?p=250 check it out, we have 2 on that nite, I know my beer… haha, normal beer glass, they will always reserve some space for the head (foam). so not surprise if the glass can fill up to 4 liter but not 5.

  13. kennhyn: Hmm…icic, interesting that. I shall have to go back and check and see how much amber fluid the glass actually holds. Cheers mate! πŸ™‚

  14. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  15. maybe you have heard of the new Kinect? Its definitely awesome! I never had so much fun playing video games before, eventhough I could call myself any hardcore player that will usually plays adventures like Call of Duty and so on. The Kinect is so different than everything else I have at any time played before. this motion controles job really well, and not just that, but not needing to use a controller to play is the personification with freedom! No infuriating button smashing any more, a single word is enough! You should think about getting a new Kinect!.
