At Joaquin's birthday party there was little quaffing. It is clear that age reduces quaff-age. Also, for my part, the traumatization from viewing older middle-aged drunkenness has greatly reduced my desire to quaff with gusto. DEF:
–verb (used without object)
1. to drink a beverage, esp. an intoxicating one, copiously and with hearty enjoyment.
–verb (used with object)
2. to drink (a beverage) copiously and heartily: We spent the whole evening quaffing ale.
3. an act or instance of quaffing.
4. a beverage quaffed.

1515–25; orig. uncert.
quaffer, noun
1. swallow, gulp, swig, guzzle. PS: Quaff-age is not a real word.
