During summer, especially in the Midwest, one can usually find a game of cornhole (tossing a corn-filled sack onto a tilted plank) in progress at the local park. During winter, it is played indoors where there enough room for the 27 feet between player and board. The game has finally found California beaches – but with one caveat; it’s hard to find a beach here that allows drinking beer.

It seems that beer and corhhole, for the adult players anyhow, go hand in hand.

For the beach-going Californian that would like to play the game as intended and with perfect cornhole balance, there will be adult beverages allowed at the Horseshoe and Cornhole Tournament hosted by the Boys and Girls Club of San Dieguito, which was begun in 2014 as a horseshoe tournament.

Ballast Point and Latitude 33 will provide the suds on the sand at Del Mar’s Dog Beach, this Saturday, August 26.

What is the difference between Corn Hole and Bean Bag Toss, beside a little sack of corn or beans?
