Beer's bitterness derives from the resentment of rabbits left paralyzed by the extraction of their hops. Enjoy less begrudging libations with today's Groupon: for $10, you get one admission to the inaugural Beer Olympics at Beehive Sport and Social Club (up to a $30 value). The event lasts from 7:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. on December 3.
Beehive Sport and Social Club's inaugural Beer Olympics assembles competitive brew enthusiasts for an evening of games championing teamwork and expert imbibing. Squads of six harness their guzzling skills to square off against other entrants during five flip-cup rounds and artfully avoid orbs chucked by opponents or frozen beer mugs lobbed by yetis with deadly aim during four dodgeball games. Beer-pong games nestle three tables side by side for three matches of precise aiming, and beer baseball adapts the rules of America's pastime around a table, cups, and ping-pong balls for five-inning bouts. Beehive Sport and Social Club rewards each participant with a commemorative T-shirt, though only one championing team obtains the Gold Beer Belt and a keg of coffee for the following morning. All contestants receive five beer tickets upon entry.
