No not of the beverage kind but rather the attitude kind!
Hashing allows you to leave your everyday life for fun, laughter and frivolity with a group of like-minded people.
Each hash group will have its own individual identity with some having a lesser or greater emphasis on the physical activity side. All is in good fun and this "drinking club with a running problem" welcomes all with a sense of humour.
Hashing has created a kinship that knows no geographical bounds of hospitality. You're as welcome at one group as any other.
