Tim Hortons beer pong may be about the most Canadian game ever

A homemade beer pong table in Edmonton constructed of snow and Tim Hortons cups might just be the most Canadian thing in existence.

Snow? Tim Hortons? Beer? Edmonton puts a home spin on the game

This is the second year Casey Reid has sculpted a backyard beer pong playing field. The Tim Hortons cups and locally-brewed Budweiser make it O, so Canadian! (CBC)

A homemade beer pong table in Edmonton constructed of snow and Tim Hortons cups might just be the most Canadian thing in existence.

Though we may be hesitant to admit it, many of us have enjoyed the occasional round of beer pong – a celebrated university campus game that involves tossing ping pong balls into cups of beer.

In St. Albert, Alberta, a community outside Edmonton, some crafty (not craft beer!) young beer enthusiasts have put a truly Canadian spin on the game.

Taking advantage of milder temperatures, Casey Reid and his friends fashioned a backyard court out of snow and spent the weekend tossing balls back and forth.

They also repurposed Tim Hortons cups for the beer.

At first, the only Canadian fail we could find in this game was the abundance of Budweiser bottles (rather than a domestic brew,) but we were quickly put in our place by readers who pointed out that Budweiser is actually brewed and bottled locally in Edmonton. 

Keen observers may also notice that none of those rims have been rolled up yet, meaning no matter the game's outcome everyone has a 1-in-6 chance of being a winner.
