"We drank beer, I like beer", Kavanaugh said.
Asked if Kavanaugh had ever suffered memory loss during a time that he had been drinking, Kavanaugh said no, but still defended beer drinking.
Christine Blasey Ford, a university professor from Palo Alto, testified to the committee that Kavanaugh and a friend, drunk at a house party in high school, had held her down on a bed, attempted to remove her clothes and covered her mouth as she tried to scream.
Whatever did or did not happen between Kavanaugh and Ford, this much we know: As a teenager and young man, Kavanaugh drank illegally, and sometimes he drank too much.
Kavanaugh answered Klobuchar's line of inquiry on his drinking habits with a question of his own. Kavanaugh's bio in the senior yearbook notes that he was a member of the "Keg City Club (treasurer) - 100 Kegs or Bust".
Earlier in the hearing, Kavanaugh said he enjoyed drinking - the legal drinking age at the time was 18-years-old - but claimed that he never went beyond social norms.
"I drank beer, my friends and I", Kavanaugh said.

Flight histories show that aircraft has been used on a number of routes recently, including to Manila, Sydney and Singapore. Air Niugini is Papua New Guinea's leading airline and flies to over 30 destinations both nationally and internationally.
You're asking about blackout. "But we have heard, not under oath, your college roommate say that you did drink frequently". If everyone in high school who drank beer in this country was accused of sexual assault, Kavanaugh said, the country would be in a dark place.
"Yeah, and I'm curious if you have", he added.
While he admitted in his congressional testimony that there were probably occasions during his time at Georgetown Prep that he had consumed "too many beers", a combative Kavanaugh denied he had ever gotten out of control or acted inappropriately toward women. Roche said he was inclined to believe Ramirez and thought Kavanaugh was capable of behaving that way.
Sen. Amy Klobuchar, the Minnesota Democrat who serves on the Senate Judiciary Committee, is known for taking a sober, detail-oriented approach in questioning those who appear before the committee.
"You should look at what I said. you should assess his credibility with that in mind", Kavanaugh said.
As Klobuchar's remarks indicate, though, Kavanaugh didn't really answer the question. So I entered college an underage drinker, became legal in September 1984, and a year later became illegal again, a status that lasted for a year. "This is a tough process, I'm sorry about that". "Klobuchar how much I respect her, and respected what she did the last hearing", Kavanaugh said. "I'm sorry about that".
Klobuchar: "I appreciate that. I was truly just trying to get to the bottom of the facts and the evidence".
