Beer Pong at Amsterdam Billiards

31 May

Amsterdam Billiards now offers beer pong! Stop by and play a game after work or add beer pong to your next corporate event!

Beer pong, also known as Beirut, is a popular drinking game where players throw a ping pong ball across a table with the intent of landing the ball in a cup of beer at the other end. The game originated within the fraternities of Dartmouth College in the 1950’s and 1960’s and instantly became a part of the social culture of the campus. The original version resembled a game of ping pong with cups of beer on each side of the table. Beer pong has been a common drinking game for most colleges and universities and has grown popularity in bars in New York City.

Here at Amsterdam Billiards, it is a very popular request amongst our corporate parties, birthday parties and bachelor parties. It’s fun. It’s social. It’s a great team-building activity! Join the fun!
