HOW IT WORKS
The bearer of this Passport has one year from the date issued to complete a global tour by drinking his/her way around the world as follows:
By referring to the Passport List, the bearer will consume a total of 80 beers, preferably in the order in which theyappear. Each time a beer is consumed, the bartender will stamp the Passport in the appropriate space and the Bearer may then complete the particulars therof. If you cannot successfully circumnavigate the globe in twelve months, you will be presumed lost in a beerless desert and your Passport will be destroyed (after we have posted a picture of your distinguishing characteristics on the bulletinboards in the main washrooms.)* After successfully circumnavigating the world within the allotted time period, the bearer will be enrolled in Bottlescrew Bill’s Around the World in 80 Beers Club as an honorary member -- receive - completely duty-free - a beautiful Bottlescrew Bill's glass, and unique logoed garment to commemorate same, and have their name tastefully engraved on a brass plaque to be placed in a prominent position in the pub, displayed in perpetuity
*It is noted that Jules Verne took 80 days to travel around the world, and we take this opportunity to remind you not to drink and drive. We recommend you limit yourself to three or four beers at one session. We reserve the right to refuse service to intoxicated patrons. Abuse of this Passport may result in temporary or permanent exile to a lesser drinking establishment.
