Frequently Asked Questions

FAQ: 

this SOUNDS LIKE A LOT OF BEER – DO I HAVE TO FINISH?

No. As macho and tough as you may be, this is a A LOT of beer. If you can’t finish, don’t. It’s important to drink responsibly. Even in your college-prime, you’ll still have difficulty attempting this task.

WHY PARTICIPATE IF I PROBABLY CAN’T FINISH?
