Oct. 11 (UPI) -- A British man's pub crawl may have set a new Guinness World Record when he visited 51 bars in 24 hours.

Matt Ellis of St. Neots, Cambridgeshire, England, said Guinness officials told him there is currently no world record for most pubs visited in 12 hours by an individual, so the record-keeping agency set the goal to originate the record at 50.


Ellis said he was required to have witnesses with him at each stop and consume at least 4.2 ounces of any beverage at each establishment.

The pub fan said he visited a total 51 businesses in 8 hours, 52 minutes and 37 seconds.

Evidence from Ellis' pub crawl has been submitted to Guinness World Records for official certification.
