Man Holds World The Record For Most Pubs Visited In A Lifetime, And It’s A LOT

by 1 year ago

You may think that you’ve been to a ton of bars in your lifetime, more than the average bro your age, but you’ve got NOTHING on Bruce Masters. Bruce holds the Guinness World Record for ‘Most Pubs Visited’, and it’s the equivalent of visiting a single pub every day for 128 years.

The Guinness World Record was certified several years ago, back on January 29th, 2014. At that time, someone ran the math and if Bruce Masters had spent $4 on a single beer at each pub visited he would’ve spent a minimum of $186,000. Obviously, Bruce is drinking more than one beer per visit, several in some cases.

So how many pubs has Bruce Masters visited throughout his lifetime? Between 1960 and 2014, Bruce has visited an astounding 46,495 pubs. To contextualize that, there is a grand total of 52,750 pubs in the UK, so there’s a decent chance that Bruce can visit every pub in the UK before he’s done.

I’ve never done anything 46 thousand times in my life other than ‘get out of bed’ and ‘fall asleep’. I have to respect Bruce’s hustle. And I believe we should all aspire to spend as much time in pubs as Bruce has, even if it’s an entirely unrealistic goal for most people.
