Play Tejo

Tejo (or turmequé) is a popular game that is similar to pétanque or cornhole, only played with a flat puck rather than a ball or a sack. Beer companies and small breweries have been promoting the game as a perfect pastime — and for a good reason! Enjoy a glass or artisanal beer and compete in a game of marksmanship. Tejo is a lot more explosive than pétanque — the target is rigged to explode if hit just right. Fireworks and beer are a winning combination when done safely.
