Tom Brady Backs Up Stories Of His Legendary Beer-Chugging Talent

Tom Brady’s prowess extends beyond playing a pretty solid NFL quarterback, nabbing world-famous models, and sharing awkwardly long mouth-to-mouth kisses with his offspring — the New England Patriots star can apparently chug beer with the best of them, though he rarely partakes anymore thanks to his famously precise diet.

We know this because Stephen Colbert put Brady to the test on Monday night with what at least appeared to be actual beer.

Last year, Brian Hoyer, who’s spent two stints as Brady’s backup, shared a story about the time Brady destroyed his fellow Patriots in a chug-off while snowed in in Buffalo:

We played up at Buffalo and we couldn’t fly back into Boston because the weather was so bad, so we had to stay the night in Rochester. We drove there, and we all decided we’d go out to dinner together. Tom being who he was, he usually couldn’t come to a team event like that. We might be at Capital Grille and he is sneaking in the back door and then people realize he’s there and he has to leave. But this was impromptu at Dinosaur Bar-B-Que in Rochester. The whole team is there. And it turns into a beer-chugging contest. You have linemen, Julian Edelman, they all think they are going to win. Then someone says, ‘I heard Tom is really great at chugging a beer.’ We don’t usually get to experience him like this, but we finally coax him into doing it. He does it, and let me tell you, you couldn’t have poured out the beer faster into a glass. … It was unbelievable. And he slams the mug on the table and puts both fists in the air. He walks away with a look on his face that said, ‘You really thought you were going to beat me on this?’ The place went nuts.

Hoyer’s tale is similar to one told by former Patriots guard Ross Tucker back in 2014.

On “The Late Show,” Brady also ate his very first strawberry.

If Colbert was truly in it to win it, he should have challenged Brady to a coffee chug-off.
