Pro Beer Sports is proud to invite you to the Beerlympics™ on Saturday May 11th, 2019! Beerlympics™ is an annual event held at Stable Studios in Spencer, Indiana. Teams of 4 or 5 players compete in a gauntlet of drinking competitions with honor, glory, and up to $1500 in cash prizes on the line.
Games start at 1:00pm EST. Players that show up after 1:00pm EST forfeit matches until they arrive. The games plan on running until 11:00pm and players are highly encouraged to camp overnight after the games. Food and beer will be available to purchase on-site starting at 11:00am.
We will be camping on location the night before starting at 6:00pm EST. All participants are encouraged to come out the night before to meet and greet, set up your camp early, and practice the games.
Pick your Country
Each team needs to pick an available country and plan on coming dressed in that country’s colors or themes. Representing your chosen country's colors and flag is part of the fun!
There is a 32-team limit, so sign up as soon as you can to reserve your country!
Teams Claimed for 2019:
Reclaiming your Team
Teams that competed in last year’s Beerlympics have from December 1st until February 1st to reclaim the same country. Starting February 1st, all countries that haven't been paid for are available. Any recognized country on Earth is available to reserve, so be creative!
Glory, pride, and $1500 in cash prizes are on the line.
The total number of teams will determine how many places get paid.
Default prize is 1st wins $1000 and top three teams win medals. Any payouts after that are based on the number of teams that enter. If over 24 teams register, then 2nd gets $400 as well. If over 30 teams register, then 3rd gets $100 as well.
The 1st place team also wins an exclusive Beerlympics trophy!
The prizes are paid in cash after the Grand Finals! During the prize ceremony, the top three teams will be recognized and awarded their medals and cash!
Each year, one player is awarded the exclusive Beerlympics Most Valuable Player (MVP) trophy. The MVP winner will be announced during the prize ceremony.
Online tickets for team packages go on sale starting December 1st. Online ticket sales end the Thursday before the Beerlympics at midnight.
Make sure to buy yours before the 32 team slots sell out!
One person buys a team package and must assemble their own team. Teams must have 4 or 5 players with no restrictions. Teams must register all teammates at the gate when they arrive at the Beerlympics. Once registered, your team roster cannot change during the event.
Teams that don't preregister Online may show up the day of the event and pay at the gate for an additional $20. This is not encouraged because you cannot guarantee all 32 team tickets haven't sold out before you arrive and you can't be certain which countries will be available to represent.
From December 1st to January 31st, all tickets are $20 off!

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.

Below are the eligible games to be played at the Beerlympics. Each game will use the official Pro Beer Sports rules.
Seeding the Teams
At the beginning of the Beerlympics, all teams will participate in the Beerlay. The team that finishes with the fastest Beerlay time becomes the 1 seed, the team with the second fastest time becomes the 2 seed, etc. For the Beerlay rules, click here.
Head to Head
In Round 1, teams will face off against another team in a best of 5 series. In Round 1, all four games are picked back and forth by the two teams, with the higher seed picking first. If the series is tied 2-2 after the four games, it comes down to a Mug Race.
After Round 1, teams will face off against another team in a best of 7 series. The first game is picked by the higher seeded team, and the second game by the lower seeded team. The third and fourth games are the predetermined games for that specific Round. Each Round has different predetermined games. If game 5 is necessary, it will be chosen by the team behind in the series, or, if the series is tied, by the higher seeded team. If game 6 is necessary, it will be chosen by the team that did not pick game 5. If the series is tied 3-3 after six games, it comes down to a Mug Race. A game can only be played once per series, including predetermined games. The tournament will be single elimination.
The last two teams will play against each other in the Grand Finals. The Grand Finals are a best of 7 series. All six games are picked back and forth by the two teams in the Grand Finals. The team with the higher seed picks first. If the series is tied 3-3 after the six games, it comes down to a Mug Race with Das Boot as the last mug. Das Boot contains 2 full beers. Winner of the Grand Finals wins the Beerlympics and the cash prize!
