The game has changed.

Australian beer mile all-star Josh Harris, who I have written about several times before, posted a video of himself on YouTube running a time of 4:56 for four beers and four laps on the track.

The time breaks the world record set by James Nielsen and equals the pending unofficial time of James Hansen.

This performance raises the stakes for the Beer Mile World Classic, where Nielsen and Harris will meet in San Fransisco on August 22.

Harris clearly has unfinished business for the race.

“World Beer Mile Classic, here we come,” Harris says at the end of his YouTube video.

I’ll be in San Francisco to witness the showdown. I’m both running the non-elite race and writing about the elite race afterward.

Hopefully, I’m in good enough shape to do both.

BREAKING: Literally just as I’m finishing this post, I see that ANOTHER runner has posted an unofficial beer mile record of 4:55. WHAT IS HAPPENING.

Brewery Travels: My Favorite Brewery/Beer from Each State

In my ongoing quest to visit breweries all across this great land, I have now surpassed the 400 mark, and they’ve been spread across 37 states and 175+ cities. To celebrate this landmark, I’ve put together a ‘Special Edition’ of Brewery Travels: A rundown of my favorites in each of the states visited so far.

Why a Miller Lite Was the Best Beer I’ve Ever Had

I’ve worked in craft beer for nearly five years now. I’ve had the fortune to try some truly amazing brews: Pliny the Elder, Heady Topper, Bourbon Barrel Aged Expedition Stout. Supplication? I’ve got one in my mini-fridge. The reason I’m telling you this is because I want to frame my statements here properly. I’ve had good beer, trust me. The best beer I’ve ever had, though, was a Miller Lite.
