"Invite your friends to a beer - you'll spend the daybeautiful! "- says modern folk wisdom. Beer gatherings with salted fish and croutons - this, of course, mentally, but somehow usually. Do not you find that such a scenario is boring? There are Europeans and people who know beer in beer, and they know how to drink it, and even beer festivals are not quite ordinary. At foreigners there are whole festivals and festivals! And we? Well, we bought a bottle (or a jar) of beer, well, we drank to sleep a future, well, we sat in the garage or at the cottage with fish or crackers ... And the holiday, which our soul asks, where? But the fun is always there, where it can be organized! And it's time to take it all in your hands, otherwise we'll sit on the bench with seeds, washing away the bones of our friends.
We organize a party: the basis for a successful beer party
How to organize a holiday or a friendly partyin the beer style? It's naive to believe that any beer party has a standard scenario. Of course, there will be alcohol and a special snack. But this is not all the same, right? Always and everywhere there are their little tricks that will help to bring variety to the home beer festival. First we will consider the generally accepted rules, and at the same time we will find the answers to standard questions.
The meeting place can not be changed: where to spend a party
Perhaps this is the most important issue in this case. Not knowing where to hold a beer party, we begin to sort through the imaginable and unthinkable options. But why invent a bicycle, if someone has already done it before us? So, if the season allows and the weather, it is best to organize such an event at the dacha, in a country house, or on a picnic on "wild nature". No wonder in Europe they arrange beer festivals in the open air. Let us also follow their traditions. But if the weather does not have any for the beer festival in the open air, then it will not go badly in the room either. You can, of course, book a table or even a hall in a restaurant (bar), but with no less success a beer party you will be able to hold at home. Plus, in the latter case you will save a lot. As you already understood, it is not the territory that is important here, but the overall atmosphere and mood.

- there must be beer attributes in the design of the table and premises,
- there must be a correctly selected menu,
- there must be thematic (beer) games and entertainment.
If you adhere to the aboverules, it already guarantees that the beer party will certainly turn out to be successful and cheerful. But this does not mean that the guests who come should drink before losing their pulse, so that the next day, suffer from a hangover, headache and shame.

- Beer Erudite quiz
Guests are invited to answer questions,related to beer history, geography, traditions. For example: "What is a birdekel?", "Where was the biggest beer mug in the world made?", "What is the name of the top label of the beer bottle?", "How much does the beer cork weigh?"
- Competition for two "Litball"
The first contestant makes one sip of beer,the next two. Then again the first - three, the second - four. And so on, until one of the participants refuses the next competitive portion of beer. But be careful that guests do not become ill. It is better to use light types of drinks, since there is less alcohol. Otherwise, the scenario of the party can go not according to the planned plan.

Beer beforehand is frozen into ice pieces,which should be placed in the mouth, but not too small to prevent the person choking. Inside each piece is a coin. The task of the contestants is to dissolve the ice and release the coin. The fastest wins.

In several mugs beer of different grades is bottledand stamps. Participants are invited to determine the taste of what kind of beer it is and in which cup it is located. The winner is the one who will guess most. As a prize, you can give a shirt with the inscription "The best connoisseur of beer". And you can measure your beer stomachs (those who have them), compete in the laudatory epithets of beer. You can hold a competition for high-speed drinking of this drink. You can make a competition for accuracy, throwing coins into beer mugs or throwing light rings on beer bottles. And nobody canceled the well-known game in a bottle. At the beer party it is possible to play anything, the main thing - the presence of the main attribute - a foamy drink.

At home you can put a big TV in the hall (borrow from friends, if you do not have one), scatter pillows on the floor, include a film. By the way, a beer party can be timed to a football match. Then you will not need to prepare a script, everyone will have an oar. And the end of such a beer festival can be coronation. Secretly or openly vote, choose the beer king and queen.
