Chef’s Note: Alcohol tolerance is a funny thing. It’s often referenced as a machismo quality (“I’ll drink you under the table”) but it is a more complex phenomenon than simple manly strength and this is a good example.
Clark Kent is certainly a large and muscular man. But he is not and never has been a drinker, and tolerance is really more about how drunk you feel, not how much alcohol you’ve imbibed. So for Clark, whose superpowers are temporarily depleted, this is the equivalent of a tween drinking their first beer. Combine that with an empty stomach and: head, meet table.
Chef’s Note: Happy International Beer Day!
