Beer Winning Betcha Bar Tricks

Cheeky challenges which if foolishly accepted, should win you a few beers

Customers enjoying some good bar tricks.


I Can Name A Song With Your Name In It

This is an excellent ice breaker and also a great chat up opportunity when at the bar or when you want to engage in conversation with someone. 

The more unusual or uncommon, the name of the person that you are engaging with, the more amusing the end result usually is.

For this example lets go extreme and use the name "Trixibelle".

OK, Lets go, Firstly you announce that you have a fantastic memory and musical knowledge and  know a song for every persons name on the planet.

Usually the person your addressing will dismiss this claim with a "no way, thats true" or similar response.

You can then reply with "OK, I understand that its difficult to believe but if I could prove it by singing a song with your name in it, would you like to wager a drink on it ?"

The person with the uncommon name will usually think that they have this one in the bag and accept the challenge.

You then ask them their name and when they tell you in a smug manner, "Trixibelle" ( Substitute name as appropriate.)

You can then let your jaw drop in a look of surprised defeat, pause for a moment in thought, and then burst into song as follows
Happy Birthday To You
Happy Birthday To You
Happy Birthday Dear Trixibelle,
Happy birthday To You

This nearly always gets a big laugh as your sucker realises thay thay have been well and truly beaten by your cheeky challenge.

Collect your drink, enjoy, job done !


Bill From Bottle Trick

This shows you a working of classic bar trick with a money note and beer bottle that can be a real money maker. Turn an empty bottle (preferably one with a long neck) upside down on top of any money bill. The challenge is to get the bill out from underneath the bottle without knocking over the bottle. You cannot touch the bottle, and it must remain upside down at all times. Of course, if you win this stunt, the bill is yours.

Whats The Secret ?

Roll up the bill until it pushes out from underneath the bottle.

The first thing people will think of is to pull the bill quickly out from underneath the bottle. This will work on smooth surfaces, unless you make sure the bill gets a little damp where it touches the bottle. The few drops of beer left in the bottle can help you out here and stop your challenger from succeeding this way.

Whats The Secret ?

Pick up the cue ball and roll it under the table. The cue ball has now rolled under the stick. Enjoy your beer!

Balance An Egg Upright Game

Profitable and rewarding game with an egg to play in a bar to win drinks from your friends image.It is pretty much impossible to balance an egg on its own, your friends think, so they should be happy to challenge you that it cannot be done. Accepting the challenge, you secretly put a little salt on a table and use that to balance the egg on. It can be done both with the fat part on the bottom of the egg or the narrower top part.

Once the egg is balanced, blow away the excess salt making it impossible to tell that any salt is there without looking at it up close. Then show your friends, the precariously balanced egg and tell them that it can only be balanced like this once every five years when the moon is at the position that it is at today or some other similar load of baloney.


Pull A Coin Through A Table

Challenge: Place a coin on a table or bar. Cover the coin with an upturned cocktail shaker or upturned cup or glass. ( If using a glass, make sure that it is the frosted type so that you cannot see the coin through it ). Bet your friends a drink that you can pick up the coin from the table without touching the upturned container, on top of it. Your friends should laugh at this seemingly impossible task & accept the bet.

Secret: Make sure that you have an identical coin to the one on the table, handy in your pocket,.

Hide the identical coin in your right hand and reach under the table with this hand. Using your best acting skills, appear to be dragging the coin that is under the container, through the table. After a little well acted struggle, you present the identical coin from under the table to your friends and boastfully let them know that you have won the bet & that they owe you a drink.

Someone nearly always figures the trick out and demands that you lift the upturned container to prove that the coin has really disappeared. When they ask, ask them to be your guest and lift the container. Of course, when they lift it, the coin will still be there. Quickly and confidently reach out and pick up the coin on the table. Voila !!!! You have completed your task and not touched the upturned container.

The look on your friends faces when they realize that they have been fooled makes this fun. This trick is a good ice breaker.

Try it just as a bet for fun.
