Breweries from all 50 US states

50 States of America Drinking Game

Beer connoisseur's will love this drinking game idea that allows you to drink beers from all over the US. The nice thing is we now actually have craft breweries again all across America. This game is perfect for Beer Can Fishing because the it is intended to be played with a variety of beers. The mystery of what you are going to catch is almost as much fun as drinking it!

Some heavy legwork is going to be required before you begin playing to collect a beer made from each of the 50 US states. Some are going to be easy to find based on your local distribution area, but the further away you are from a state the harder it is going to be to find. Teamwork makes the dream work when it comes to this task, so delegate a few states to each of your friends and see what they can find. 

How to play 50 States of America

  • Collect a single beer from each of the 50 states
  • Get an extra large cooler, kids pool, or container and load it with ice and 50 beers
  • Snap on our custom can lids on each beer to make them catchable
  • Rig up your fishing pole with the provided fishing hooks
  • Try to catch a beer from above, ideally from a deck or truck tailgate. You can also play with a floating cooler in a lake or pool
