old brewery tavern canterbury Students Set Record After Drinking 5,000 Jagerbombs In One Night

A group of students set a questionable record when they drank almost 5,000 Jagerbombs in a night.

The 800-strong crowd downed 930 litres (205 gallons) of the Jagermeister/Red Bull combo.

They took on the challenge at a weekly student event called Jager Rocks, where the cocktail is sold for just £1.

Organiser Student Republic tweeted the results, posting: ‘News just in: you guys drank a record 4,764 Jagerbombs at last Thursday’s Jager Rocks #cheeky.’

But the boozy boast was met with mixed reviews. One psychology undergraduate told student newspaper The Tab: ‘It’s always a mental night but it was better than ever – the Jäger just did not stop flowing.’

Another attendee bragged: ‘It wouldn’t even be over 4,000 if it wasn’t for me and my mates.’

But one student criticised the event as ‘irresponsible’.

She said: ‘At the time, I thought it was great – cheap drinks are always welcome to a poor student.

‘But I ended up drinking so many, I had heart palpitations and I was sick. It was irresponsible, really.’

The event, held at the Old Brewery Tavern in Canterbury, Kent, saw attendees consume more than 14,200 units – an average of six Jagerbombs per person or 18 units each.

The recommended weekly alcohol limit is 14 units for women and 21 units for men.

And alcohol awareness charity Drinkaware warned against the ‘worrying trend’ of mixing spirits with energy drinks, a combination that can cause palpitations, agitation, tremors, irritability and tension.

Chief medical adviser Prof Paul Wallace said: ‘Caffeine can reduce the sedative effects of acute alcohol consumption, inducing a state referred to as “wide-awake drunk”.

‘This can put people at risk of alcohol-related injuries because the stimulatory effect can lead them to underestimate alcohol’s impact on their mind and body, giving them a false sense of security.’
