National Beer Pong Day – May 1st, 2021
National Beer Pong Day is the first Saturday in May and this year, the holiday falls on the 1st! What started as a family celebration in 2006 has become a holiday enjoyed across the country. But how did beer pong even start?
Did you know that beer pong is based on a ping–pong–like game called Beirut? This game called for players to hit a ping-pong ball into cups using a paddle. The city of Boston is commonly credited for the adaptation of Beirut into the game of Beer Pong as we know it today. This adaptation occurred sometime in the 60s or 70s, when the game, ping-pong, and beers were all very popular in the Boston area. At the time, the popularity of basketball was on the increase as well and the Boston Celtics were at the top of their game. This is possibly the reason that the paddles were ultimately discarded for Beer Pong.
