Geaghan's, Bangor Come Up 28 Cans Short in World Record Bid

BANGOR, Maine Bangor came up just short in it's attempt at setting a world record last week.

At the Annual Chamber Dinner attendees attempted to break the world record for simultaneously opening cans.

The vast majority of the cans were Geaghan's beers.

The company said tonight that they came up 28 cans short.

The event was filmed and sent off to officials with Guinness World Records who delivered the bad news recently.

The previous record was 1,149 opened in Japan in 2016.

Bangor opened 1,122. That was, however, a Bangor record.
