Well done to him.. The record will get broken next weekend anyway.
The kid from down under who ran 5:03 using bottles could give him a run. I would think bottles would be slower to down, and the last cap wouldn't twist off. Cost him at least 3 seconds if not more. That should have been the first official sub 5.
A true beer miler would always have a bottle opener or even a second beer if he thought his wrists would suddenly go limp before the last lap.
