How Does The Draft Work?

By Chugging Of Course!

The draft starts off with the goalies competing in a thrilling beer chug showdown to pick their jerseys.

Then, it’s time for another goalie chug to kick off the draft itself. To make sure teams are evenly matched, we pair up player draft lines with similar skills. And the excitement keeps coming with a chug-off to decide the draft order, from the fastest to the slowest chug.

Finally, teams come together for a team chug to choose their schedule for the weekend.

And hey, if you’re not into alcoholic drinks, don’t worry, we’ve got options to keep everyone in on the fun!

Our draft happens at a super cool venue, and the best part? The chug beers are on the house for all participants. And not just that – we’ll even cover a few more drinks too!

Now, that’s a recipe for an unforgettable time!
