The Killer Cobra Beer Challenge
It’s dumbest challenge to hit the internet since the Kylie Jenner lip challenge. Seriously…don’t; just don’t…

What’s the Killer Cobra Challenge?
Syn. “King Cobra Chug Challenge”
According to this post on InterroBang, the Killer Cobra Challenge is where a person drinks three tallboys of King Cobra Beer Malt liquor in a row (which is both dumb and gross). It showed up in 2014 online, and appears to have re-emerged in 2017 with this video:
You’ll notice the guys in the video are vomiting, falling into everything and generally f’d–it’s because they’re suffering from symptoms of alcohol poisoning.
Drink Responsibly. Don’t do the Killer King Cobra Challenge
It’s seriously dumb and potentially dangerous…
If you crunch the numbers, a tall boy is 750ml/24oz; three tall boys would be around 2 liters; that’s equivalent to about 6 cans of beer (or a 6-pack); at 6% abv you’re looking at consuming around 135ml of pure alcohol (which is about 4.5 oz) in…20 minues???
Chugging 3 tall boys puts you very quickly into the lethal/dangerous zone for alcohol poisoning.
So don’t do the Killer/King Cobra challenge…because again, it’s dumb and potentially dangerous.
Drinking can be fun — but let’s be smart about it.

I am a dark beer drinker through and through but I wanted to stretch my tastes a little and venture into the ever popular summer drink category. I’ve featured a variety of beers and even some ciders and hard iced teas. Everything is Canadian craft except for a couple Belgians thrown in the mix. Thank you to Bowen Island Brewing , Whistler Brewery, Big Rock, Steamworks, 49th Parallel Group, Alley Kat, Tool Shed, Yukon Brewing and Hey Y’all for sending these samples my way to feature. Cheers guys and happy summer drinking !

This Ain’t Your Father’s Beer
OK, so maybe it is your father’s beer. Brewing beer was originally done in-house. Each household/farm made their own beer especially in Europe, but these beer companies still remain family owned and operated. Celebrate Father’s Day by checking out some beers by these great family breweries.
