BEEB-LOGO       BEEN-MAN-AUSTIN

The BEEB, also known as “it’s The BEEB”, combines Brewskee-Ball’s two major national championships (The World Mug and The Rollers Tournament) with a festival. It is held annually during Memorial Day Weekend. The inaugural BEEB was held in Williamsburg, Brooklyn at Full Circle Bar and The Knitting Factory, May 25–27, 2012. The name BEEB is derived from BBNC (Brewskee-Ball National Championship), which was founded in 2010. Some rollers began referring to the BBNC as simply, The BEEB, because of the sound that is made when pronouncing the two B’s at the beginning of the acronym.

Joey the Cat of San Francisco won the second BBNC in 2011 and the first-ever Rollers Tournament in 2012. Snakes on a Lane of Brooklyn won the 2013 Rollers Tournament.

The Brewskee-Ball World Mug, often simply the World Mug, is one of the two major Brewskee-Ball National Championships (BBNC). The World Mug is a team skee-ball competition contested by U.S. cities affiliated with and sanctioned by Brewskee-Ball and the World Mug Council, the tournament’s global governing body.

The current format of the tournament involves 4 national teams competing for the title, one team from each qualifying Brewskee-Ball city. National teams are comprised of one coach who selects 13 rollers from their respective city, from which 4 individual teams of 3 rollers are formed. The first-ever World Mug took place on May 26, 2012 at The Knitting Factory in Brooklyn. The second World Mug took place on May 25, 2013 at The Scoot Inn in Austin. San Francisco won the first two World Mugs. Brooklyn brought the World Mug to the East Coast for the first time in 2014. Last year, Austin was able to capture the World Mug in dramatic fashion, winning the tournament in their newly built Full Circle Bar. The winning city is presented with the World Mug and retains it for the entire year.
