Ideas for Beer Olympic Costumes

Beer Olympics are a recreational event perhaps inspired by the movie "Beerfest," a 2006 film about two brothers who travel to Germany for Oktoberfest and discover a secret, centuries-old beer-drinking competition. As with the actual Olympics, teams may represent certain countries with costumes pertaining to that country, though sports jersey costumes are also acceptable.


Since the Germans invented beer, it makes sense to represent Germany in a beer Olympics event. Ideas include lederhosen costumes for men or shorts with attached suspenders and white shirts. Such costumes are frequently worn with white socks that go up to the knees, brown or black men's shoes and fedora-shaped hats with feathers. German girl and woman barmaid costume ideas include lacy scooped neckline dresses with corset-like accents and detached puffy sleeves. Wear thigh-high white stockings with such costumes and chunky black heels.

Mexico and Spain

If your team is representing Mexico or Spain there are numerous costume options available, including sombreros and ponchos for all team members. Other options include flamenco dancer dresses and rumba costumes for men and women. Rumba costumes feature lots of frills on the skirts as well as the sleeves, particularly on the men's costumes. Mexican shooter costumes are available for women and feature a serape mini dress, belt, holster for holding a tequila bottle, sombrero and shot glasses.


Represent Ireland at the beer Olympics with out-sized leprechaun hats. The entire team can wear such hats or only the men or only the women. Wear the hats with street clothes or dress up as leprechauns with green velvet jackets and short green trousers with green tights and black buckled shoes. Female versions of such costumes feature short green velvet dresses. Other ideas include priest costumes and Celtic warrior costumes, which are available for both men and women at costume supply stores.

Sports Theme

Costumes do not necessarily have to represent a country. Ideas for sports-related costumes include matching sports jerseys, such as rugby uniforms, which feature a short-sleeved jersey, shorts and cleats. Team member can personalise their jerseys as they see fit, if desired, or all jerseys can match. Matching football jerseys, basketball jerseys and baseball jerseys or uniforms are also options. If you are part of a beer softball league, try wearing your team uniform to a beer Olympics event.
