A Journey of a Thousand Beers...

A few posts ago I wrote about “quests.”

Ever since then, the word “quest” seems to be popping up more often – I guess I’ve gotten in sync with the same wavelength of quests.

So, it was no surprise when I came across the following site this morning for “The Quest of the Holy Grain”:

Your quest today should be to check this out. Their Mission Statement reads:

Our mission is to enrich our lives with meaning through the pursuit of the Holy Grain. A man who drinks 1,000 different beers is a man of accomplishment. The Quest gives meaning and direction to even the most worthless life. To be a Questor, you are no longer a man with a drinking problem, you are a man with a purpose.

Here is what you have to do (according to the Quest Code of Conduct):

  • To enter the ranks of the Grainy Order of Questors you must begin in the attempt to drink 1,000 different beers in your lifetime or sooner.
  • You must document your Quest.
  • A beer is considered a full serving, not a taste or a sampling. Normally, 12 fluid ounces shall be the minimum requirement for conquering a beer.

According to the web site, there are 8 Living “Questors.” You can find them under the heading of “Questor Files.” Scroll down to the bottom and meet Walter the First.

Other Pages include (this should link to them):

  1. Thats some serious quest. I love reading the data tho.. made me want to go get a Poachers.

  2. Now that is a Quest for the Holy Grail of Grain! According to my World Beer Tour documentation, I am standing at 220 different beers. To the best of my calculations, I have sampled an estimated 100 additional varieties over the course of my drinking life. That would account for only 320. Now I can see why there are only 5 Questers in the world. You either will end up fat, broke or dead trying...but what the hell, it sure would be a fun endeavor!

  3. Hooky, i hate to break it to you..but, we are all going to end up Fat, Broke and Dead we might as well go drink beer and enjoy the ride...
