Maine city’s attempt to break beer can record comes up short

BANGOR, Maine (AP) — Residents of a Maine city came just 28 beer cans short of setting a world record last week.

Attendees at Bangor’s Annual Chamber Dinner were attempting to break the record for simultaneously opening beer cans. WABI-TV reports the vast majority of the beers were supplied by Geaghan Brothers Brewing.

The Brewer-based brewery says they received word they did not break the record from Guinness World Records recently after sending video of the attempt.

The record was set in Japan in 2016 with 1,149 cans opened simultaneously. The Bangor attempt managed 1,122 — which is a record for the city itself.
