** Stannis' reaction to [[spoiler: seeing Thor fly]] later on in ''A Crack of Thunder'' is to drain a tankard of ale with such gusto that it's noted Robert is probably looking down on him from the Seven Heavens with pride.

* Not always booze; the British National Grid's biggest ever power surge came after losing a UsefulNotes/FIFAWorldCup semi-final against Germany. The surge was caused by half the country [[SpotOfTea needing a bloody cuppa]].

** ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'': In "Rascals", [[NegativeSpaceWedgie a space anomaly de-ages Keiko O'Brien along with Capt. Picard, Guinan, and Ro]]. Miles, Keiko's husband, tries to deal with the awkwardness of Keiko's teenaged state by going to get coffee, until Keiko insists upon getting it herself, which makes the situation even more awkward. [[TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodSandwich Then they're so upset that neither of them takes so much as a sip from their coffee before setting down the cups]].

* ''You'', at some point. Maybe because something you don't like is being continued, or because what you liked got a crappy continuation, among countless other scenarios.

* ''WebVideo/{{Computerphile}}'': [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-5wpm-gesOY The Problem with Time & Timezones]]. Tom Scott is describing a hypothetical programmer, who created a simple tool that takes two times, in two time zones, and calculates how far apart they are in seconds... and all the exceptions and rule-patches needed to make sure it's accurate. When someone in the Southern hemisphere calls up to tell this hypothetical programmer that they do Daylight Saving Time backwards compared to the Northern hemisphere, the programmer starts "looking longingly at their intoxicant of choice and wondering whether they should have a quick drink before keeping going". [[FromBadToWorse This happens at minute 3 of a 10-minute video]].

Can sometimes be a type of {{Trigger}}. Contrast NoMoreForMe and LiquidCourage. Also see GiganticGulp. Occasionally, the drink [[DrunkOnMilk might be milk]] or [[SpotOfTea tea]] for Brits.

* ''WesternAnimation/{{Castlevania}}'': Upon hearing that Dracula's [[LegionsOfHell Horde]] has been spotted near town, a man named Peter runs into the local pub demanding an ale. He downs his drink in one breath before telling the other patrons the news.

Added DiffLines:

* ''Fanfic/AManOfIron'' has a couple of examples:
** [[NotSoStoic Tywin Lannister]] is so overwhelmed by the [[HumiliationConga incredibly poor circumstances]] that his children and grandson's actions have put the family in by the end of the first book, that he starts downing wine in large capacities. Tyrion is seriously freaked out by seeing this.
** Tyrion himself gets a moment of this when he arrives in King's Landing in ''A Crack of Thunder''. He's so overwhelmed by the sheer stupidity of the Small Council just accepting [[spoiler: Sansa Stark "[[CameBackWrong miraculously]]" coming BackFromTheDead]] and justifying it with some half-assed excuses, that he just grabs a wine bottle and starts guzzling straight from it.

* In ''WesternAnimation/{{Metalocalypse}}'', an episode has the band awakening a lake troll. In the ensuing chaos, Nathan states he needs ''exactly'' one hundred beers. Cut to the Nathan and the band in a bar, asking for one hundred beers. Earlier, when Offdensen said that the troll was affecting their sales, Pickles also declared he needed drink. A different drink, not the one currently in his hand.
