* A RunningGag in WarrenEllis' ''ComicBook/{{Nextwave}}'' is for [[SecondLawMyAss Aaron "Machine Man" Stack]] to declare "My robot brain needs beer." Later in the series, he pulls out a man-sized barrel of ''something'', and plugs it directly into his head with a tube...

* Aahz from ''Literature/MythAdventures'' regularly drinks his booze from bucket-sized vessels. (Chumley and other giant-sized characters do too, but this trope is more applicable with Aahz because he's shorter than many humans.)

* In the first Stinger from ''Film/DoctorStrange'', [[spoiler: Thor drops by the Sanctum Sanctorum to speak with Strange about Loki, and Strange welcomes him with a pitcher-sized mug of beer. Which is ever-filling, and which Thor empties in ''one swallow'' when the camera momentarily cuts over to Strange.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Several cantina franchises, such as the Cabo Cantina in Southern California, sell ridiculously oversize margaritas. Cabo Cantinas sell 36 oz "Mega Margs", large enough for several people but single patrons can attempt to drink it themselves.
* Kentucky Fried Chicken sells/had sold a mighty 1/2 gallon (64 oz) mug, a plastic cup with a handle. They (would) donate a portion of the cost to help fund research to cure juvenile diabetes, an action that seems odd at first until you remember that they aren't the ones filling the cups with soda, that would be the customer.
