Top 10 Ways to Drink a Beer

Beer, the nectar of the gods is a drink enjoyed by many. No matter what language you may speak or what part of the world you live in, it translates perfectly; in fact, if beer was a language, it would be default.

With beer becoming ever more popular and with people becoming more inventive, the days of drinking a beer out of a standard pint glass will soon be obsolete. Sure, after a hard day’s work, a cold bottle of beer while relaxing watching TV goes down a treat, but every now and then the party hat goes on and sipping a beer out of a can just isn’t cool enough.

 

1.The Chug

The classic chug! Out of all beer drinking techniques, the plain chug is probably the most common; the reason being the equipment needed. As long as you have a beer in hand (the guy above is going to the extreme) and a friend then you can both participate. The aim of the game is to try and down your beer in one go, straight from the bottle/can/glass.

 

2.Yard of Ale

A yard of ale – also known as a yard glass – is a glass that holds 2.5 pints and yes you guess it, the glass is 1 yard long. The idea is to challenge someone to see how long it takes them to drink the full yard, but with 2.5 pints, that’s easier said than done. A guy did get into the Guinness Book of Records with a time of 5 seconds…the machine!

 

3. Das Boot

If you have ever seen the movie, Beerfest, then you will know exactly what Das Boot is! Think of it as a modified Yard of Ale glass with less beer. You will be surprised to hear that the translation is actually “The Boat.”

 

4. The Beer Hat

The Beer Hat: The lazy man’s way to drink a cold one! Why hold a beer when you don’t have to? In fact, why hold just the one, why not two? If you have ever asked yourself these questions then the Beer Hat is for you. Although the practicality of them with you often spilling beer if not careful isn’t the best, the amazement factor of wearing one is well worth it.

 

5.Flip Cup

Think Beer Pong is overrated? Then Flip Cup is for you. Considered one of the Mother of all drinking games, Flip Cup is a simple drinking games that gets everyone playing and everyone drinking. As long as you are able to flip a cup from the edge of the table then you will be fine.

 

6. Shotgunning

Shotgunning is an advanced way to chugging your beer straight from a can. The idea is to compete with other to try and down your beer first. The idea is to pierce a small hole in the bottom of the can, open your can and then use the newly pierced hold to rapidly consume your beer.

 

7. Beer Bong

The Beer Bong, a device created to aid you with your beer drinking! As the word “bong” can sometimes conjure up the idea of drug usage, the beer bong can sometimes be referred to as a beer funnel. When it comes to competing with other to down a beer, the Beer Bong is the king of party devices.

 

8. Ice luge

The Ice Luge isn’t as popular as it should be due to the fact of how expensive a block of ice can be; although, cheaper alternative methods are now available. The amazing thing about Ice Luges is you can use room temperature beer and the beer will be cold when you drink it due to the ice.

 

9. Beer Pong

Although played, Beer Pong isn’t as popular in the UK as it is in the U.S. If you are throwing a college party or if you have been to a college party then you have experienced the game of Beer Pong. The idea is to create two teams, and then take it in turns to throw a ping pong ball in the hope of getting it into your opponent’s cup. If a ping pong ball lands in your cup, you must drink the beer in that cup.

 

10. Keg Stand

The keg stand is most awesome way you can drink a beer! Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. As soon as someone announces they wish to participate in a Keg Stand, the whole room rushes to watch. There is no amount of beer you need to consume and although one person is drinking, others need to help (as seen in the above (picture).

    I have to admit that the Keg Stand has to be one of the best ways to drink beer. I have tried one myself and I admit they are not the easiest of things to do.

    Haha, the beer hat picture. I have used one of them before and the major flaw that they have is they tip up when you lean forward.
