The Activities

  • Beer tasting - Each guest will be given a 'tasting tray', containing a sampling of different craft beers (use the beers supplied by your guests).  Place 5 to 6 beer mug shot glasses , all containing a different beer, on each tray.  Make certain that every tray has the same selection of beers.  Use a secret numbering system to keep track of the corresponding beers and shot glasses.  Have guests vote on their favorite beer.  The guest that supplies the winning beer receives a prize!  For those who are serious beer lovers; here is a guide to an official beer tasting! 
  • Cider tasting - For the kids!  Have a selection of cider flavors on hand and have a tasting that mirrors the adults'.  This lets the kids take part in the fun.   
  • Keg Rolling Contest - Have each adult select a partner.  One partner will be blindfolded and roll the keg.  The other will stand at the finish line and direct his/her partner.  The first person and keg to cross the finish line wins.  All begins with a READY, SET, GO!!
  • Pumpkin Rolling Race- For the kids.  Divide the group into teams of 3 or 4 members.  Set a post 20 to 30 feet from the starting point.  The race begins with the first child rolling a pumpkin to the post.  Now, circle around the post and head back to the team.  The next member does the same until all team members have crossed the finish line.  The first team to complete the race wins.
