Players in the tournament will drink beer required for the games for free for the duration of the Beerlympics!
Games like Flip Cup, Sticky Wicket, and the tie-breaker Mug Race can require drinking beer quickly. Be aware of your team's beer intake and spread the drinking amongst all the players if you can. You are allowed 4-5 team members for a reason.
When teams check in, they will need to sign a waiver saying they understand the responsibility of drinking is on them. Referees and Pro Beer Sports staff will hand out beers for some games and pour beers in cups or mugs for other games.
Additional beer can be purchased on site. No outside food or drinks allowed in the game arena.
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.
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.
