Drink, Eat, Repeat
Between noon and 11:00pm the day of the Beerlympics, people playing in the tournament will be drinking beer in at least some of the games.
Teams will need to sign a waiver saying they understand the responsibility of drinking is on them. Referees and staff will hand out beers for some games and pour beers in cups or mugs for other games. Yes, you can drink as much as you want, but please drink responsibly.
The Beerlympics is a marathon, not a sprint, so pace your alcohol intake accordingly. Players on teams that are still active in the tournament may not drink wine or liquor.
Food will be available for purchase from 11am to midnight the day of the Beerlympics. Water bottles are available for free to anyone at the Beerlympics. Please make sure you and everyone on your team drinks water and eats throughout the day.
