Cornhole is that game where you toss a bean bag filled with corn and try to get it in the center hole of a raised platform. Getting the bag in the hole earns you three points and getting anywhere else on the platform earns you one point. Whichever player reaches a score of 21 first will claim victory. Part of the appeal of the game is its simplicity. Cornhole can get to be really fun when alcohol is added to the mix. There isn’t an abundance of places to play the game, but the bars where you can find it are great local watering holes. People can actually take cornhole quite seriously, playing in leagues and tournaments. If you are looking for cornhole games in Sacramento, then the following list is one you will want to take note of.
Der Biergarten

Sacramento, CA 95816

Midtown’s own Der Biergarten has so many things to offer that other bars/pubs do not. One aspect that is definitely different than its competitors is the atmosphere. The operations areas are made up completely of cargo containers, and the guest area is an all-outdoor experience. The bar has more than 30 beers on tap and patrons are invited to play cornhole whenever they like. Biergarten keeps it simple and fun without leagues or organized competitions. Remember, if it’s raining, it is closed. But drop by on a sunny day and challenge your friends to a cornhole game.
