The 4th Annual San Francisco Beer Olympics

Anchor Brewery Tour

Ladies and gentlemen, start your chugging! The 4th Annual San Francisco Beer Olympics takes place this Saturday, July 29th at Speedway Meadow in Golden Gate Park. This event is a fundraiser for the Black Rock Roller Disco camp at Burning Man 2006.

How did sports like synchronized swimming, rhythmic gymnastics and badminton get to be “Olympic”? Since baseball and women’s softball have been eliminated from the Olympic program, it’s time to include some new, innovative sports. On Saturday, July 29, there will be a new entry making it’s mark on the Olympic scene.

Can you arm wrestle while chugging a beer? How about tossing a keg while chugging a beer? Can you chug a beer while running in a three legged race? If this sounds like the kind of competition for you, come on out to Speedway Meadow in San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park where real beer chugging athletes will push their bodies and bellies to the limit in the 4th annual San Francisco Beer Olympics.

The Firestone Walker Brewery will present the “San Francisco Beer Olympics”. The festivities starts at 12 noon. The events are Keg Tossing, Arm Wrestling and the 3 Legged Race. The event is open to anyone both male and female.
