After playing Beer Frisbee at a family event, I knew I had to create my own. I searched online and found a lot of different websites dedicated to the rules of the game, and to what the game is called. Regardless of searching for Beer Frisbee, Beersbee, Frisbeer, Polish Horseshoes, French Darts, and a few others names, I couldn't find a good guide for actually BUILDING the required poles. I set out to change that by writing my first Instructable after years of just browsing the site. All of the materials were bought for about $50 at my local Home Depot and the build took a couple hours, mostly due to extremely high temps and trying to remember to take pictures along the way.
In this Instructable, I'm not going to explain the rules of the game. There are so many different ways to play that you'll have to decide which version works best for you. Search any of the above names of the game on your favorite search engine and you'll find more than enough ways to play. Chances are, if you found this Instructable, you've already played somewhere else and will stick with the rules you first learned.
Step 1: Materials & Tools
Qty 4 - 1-1/2" PVC Pipe cut to 2.5' (30"). I had an employee at Home Depot cut a 10' long piece into four equal length pieces.
Qty 2 - 1-1/2" PVC Coupling
Qty 2 - 1-1/2" PVC to 1-1/2" Thread Fitting
Qty 2 - 2" to 1-1/2" PVC Reducer
Qty 2 - 1-1/2" Pipe Thread Metal Flanges
Qty 2 - Boards to act as bases. I was able to find 2 pieces of pressure treated 2" x10" x 24" for $1 each in the cull (scrap) bin.
Qty 8 - #14 x 1-1/2" Flat Head Screws. These came in packs of two at Home Depot.
Qty 1 - PVC Primer (Purple Can)
Qty 1 - PVC Cement (Gold Can)
Qty 2 - Beer Bottle. I've played with 16oz plastic bottles (with some rice inside for weight) that work a lot better than glass. No worrying about breaking a bottle and it hurts a LOT less when it lands on your feet.
Qty 1 - Frisbee, of course.
Drill and drill bits
Framing Square (optional)
Table or Mitre Saw (optional if you need to cut your own wood or PVC pipe)
Sunscreen if you're a redhead building this at noon on a 100+ °F day in July.
