Beer, Bags & Bragging Rights

The Cornhole Circuit was founded in 2016 by Elevated Beer, Wine & Spirits and Versus Circus (previously known as The BIg South Group). The circuit is a bags league that currently operates during the Summer, roughly May – August, simultaneously running league play on site at our hosting member breweries. Teams that register to play choose the brewery that works best for them, based off of location, league night, beer specials, among other factors, all using identical equipment, while competing under the same managed system. Stats are recorded weekly for each league and posted live online for all to see. Once you select a brewery, you will play at that location for the entire 8 to 9 weeks leading up to the championships. The season is capped off by a major championship between ALL taproom teams, taking place at Mystic Lake Casino Hotel. Teams are seeded according to their final regular season rank and placed within a number of championship brackets against teams of similar records and skill. Teams that earn a spot in the top bracket will compete for the overall league championship, as well as cash, prizes and of course, The Hopper! And of course there will be cash payouts in all remaining brackets.

 

In just three seasons we've seen signs of the circuit taking off and continuing to grow. Spreading further and further throughout the great state of Minnesota and into surrounding states. The links below will take you where ever you need to go, whether it's during active league play or in the off season. Welcome to The Cornhole Circuit!  

The Concept

The Cornhole Circuit concept is simple, yet unique. In a nutshell, during open registration, you would choose the brewery where you'd like to play from the list of hosting taprooms on the "Circuit Board". Next, follow the steps to complete your team registration to grab one of the available spots, as these are usually limited to 10 – 16 teams per brewery. Pay your team entry fee to 100% secure your spot, and enjoy 8 to 9 weeks of regular season league play along with some delicious locally crafted beer. Then come together with all other taproom team members to battle it out for the overall circuit championship!
