Important Beer Pong News You Need

Christmas Dish Beer Pairings

Ah, Christmas. Time for joy, presents, tons of food, and awkwardly hanging out with relatives. More importantly, time for parties! Nothing says holiday spirit like a festive game of beer pong–especially when you have a light up beer pong table to match your mistletoe! Holiday parties are not made by beer pong alone, however–Christmas is the perfect time to impress your friends and relatives with your detailed knowledge of how different beers can be paired with the best Christmas dishes!

Turkey with Lager

A light lager will help to offset the heaviness of the classic turkey, mashed potato, and gravy combination, and it acts as a palate cleanser between bites. Go for something a little more upscale than your usual fare, like a Belgian light lager–it’s the holidays, after all!

Glazed Ham with Rauchbier

Sweet and smoky glazed ham should be paired with a rauchbier–a smoky German beer–if at all possible. The smokiness of the beer complements the smokiness of the ham, and you’ll get bonus points talking about a type of beer that not everyone will have heard about. If you can’t find a rauchbier at your local shop, go for a rich oktoberfest-style beer instead.

Prime Rib with Porter

Grilled red meat pairs perfectly with the dark, malty flavor of a good porter–there’s the perfect balance of similarity and contrast to make the flavors of both the beer and the meat pop when you put them together. Just make sure that your porter isn’t too bitter, or it will overpower the meat.

Sweet Potatoes with Brown Ale

A malty, hoppy brown ale will match the sweetness of the potatoes but have just enough bite to cut through the glaze. This combo is good enough that you might just want to skip out on the rest of the meal (but you won’t because all the other pairings are awesome too).

Dessert with Stout

Let’s be honest–it doesn’t actually matter what dessert it is for us to say that you should pair it with stout. Pumpkin pie? Pair it with stout. Figgy pudding? Pair it with stout. Literally anything else sweet that’s served with piles of whipped cream? Pair it with stout. The big flavors in the stouts offset the sweetness of the desserts, and everyone feels better about life after dessert and stout are on the table. Bonus points with your family if you then play board games with them after dinner–no one else needs to know that you’ve invented your own scrabble drinking game for every time your aunt asks “what do I do with a Q?”

Best Thanksgiving Drinking Games

November is upon us, and that means one thing: Thanksgiving Drinking Games. Yes, of course Thanksgiving is all about family togetherness, and while that can be awesome (“fantastic stuffing, mom! I can’t wait for the pumpkin pie!”), it can also be kind of awkward (“uh…grades? Future plans? Life goals? What?”). But here at Party Pong’s we like to offer the best solutions that promise good drinking games while sharing strong family values, cause you know, family’s important dude. Introducing Friendsgiving: a Thanksgiving-style gathering with your closest friends, in which you feast, drink, and party with friends who feel just like family. And if not, figure out whose family is crazier too.

Once you’ve shared whatever potluck food you’ve all brought and are working your way into the booze, you might want to consider a few games to get to know your friends better. Personal favorite? A variation on “Never Have I Ever”. Instead of sharing embarrassing stories about drunken escapades, share your most awkward family holidays moments. “Never have I ever…had to help an older relative find her misplaced dentures. Never have I ever…walked in on visiting relatives getting it on.” Anytime someone has had that happen, they take a drink. So everyone gets to know each other better, with the added solidarity of knowing that they’re not alone in having found their rabidly teetotaler uncle pouring himself a double scotch.

Another great get-to-know-your-friends-better game is “would you rather,” in which you ask the collective which of two bizarre things they’d rather do. Examples can range from completely innocuous (“would you rather run a mile barefoot or walk 50 miles in shoes?’) to the incredibly salacious (insert two examples of things unfit for print).You can write these down ahead of time, but it’s more fun if you just go around the table and take turns providing the choices. Between the two choices, whichever group has the least amount of people must all drink. Collective drunkenness? Best way to get real with your bros.

These are two examples, but there are lots more out there. Consider a Thanksgiving themed party, dress up as a pilgrim, an indian, a turkey! At of course, lead it all up to a classic thanksgiving beer pong game of pilgrims vs indians. The holidays are a special time, make the most of it! What games are you planning on having at your Friendsgiving?
