Join hashing’s fastest-growing back-to-basics movement!
The hashing day closest to Oct. 23 is World Peace Through Beer day in hash groups all over the world. This is the 15th WPTB. The event began in 1997 at the Music City HHH, Nashville, Tenn., as a reaction to “theme” hashes that didn’t seem to be strongly tied to hashing. This celebration of world beers is totally hashlike, given the international nature of the group and its members.
“In order to promote international cooperation and to achieve international peace and security by the acceptance of beers of all Hashing nations, by the prescription of open, just and honorable relations between Hashes, by the firm establishment of the understanding of international brewing, and by the maintenance of justice and a scrupulous respect for all Hash traditions in the dealings of organized Hashes with one another, we agree to the Covenant of the World Peace Thru Beer Hash.” Interhash withoutleaving home!World Peace Through Beer is an annual event held on the closest hashing day to United Nations Day, Oct. 24. Any hash may join by setting a run featuring beers from as many nations as can be enjoyed.We are helping all beer-producing nations by encouraging production and consumption of beer, and helping various hash groups open their eyes to the variety of beers and flavours enjoyed by hashers everywhere.
