Leaning Tower of Miller

This past weekend while I was at work, a bar patron and I succeeded in building the Leaning Tower of Miller.

It began when my friend Eric flipped his bottle over on the bar and waited to see how long I would notice it. Once I did notice, he continued to flip his beer bottles over when he was ready for a beer. After 3 bottles, however, the creation of the Leaning Tower of Miller began.

Later on this week I found the picture of our tower and it made me want to google beer bottle art. It turns out that there is a world record for tallest beer bottle tower.The record was won in East Flanders on April 3, 2013 by a guy who stacked 6 beer bottles on top of each other. The tower had to stand for at least 5 seconds in order to qualify for the competition. After building my own tower of bottles, I think those bottles in East Flanders must be easier to stack than our bottles in America!
