14 Best Non Alcohol Beers and Drinks for a Sober Day on the Lake (2024)


Here’s a fun way to drink or save yourself from drinking the beer aside from the popular beer pong. Prepare a flat tray and alternately place 5 red solo cups on it with the help of hot glue. Add a border on the edge of the tray with cardboard or Styrofoam. To set it up put it diagonally on the table with a box on the end of the tray touching the table, this will catch the balls. Now during a drinking session or game, use this to determine how many drinks you should drink. Grab a ball and throw it towards the tray, if you’re able to shoot it inside the cups then you’re safe. If you miss the cup and the ball falls to the box, then you’ll have to drink a cup of beer. You can also customize it by labeling the cups with the desired number of cups of beer to drink or add special consequences to pump up the game.
