Pong Brand Beer Made For Playing Beer Pong

pong-brand-beer.jpg

Because frat bros will buy anything, Latrobe Brewing Company of Pennsylvania is now manufacturing and selling Pong brand beer, canned beer made specifically for playing beer pong (read: watery and tasteless). Me? I play beer pong like a REAL MAN. With no shirt and pounding my chest like a wild animal. "...I think that means you play more like a wild animal then." *growling and eating dog food*

According to the company's website, the beverage is currently available in 10 states, and is coming soon to Texas and Florida. The folks at Pong Beer did the math, and the numbers are pretty convincing. Sales of beer pong paraphernalia generate $20 million annually and 50% of college students say they play the game.


As a reminder this beer is not just for drinking, a 30 can "Rack Pack" comes with two free balls. For those who can't be bothered to walk down the dry goods aisle, "The Reload" comes with everything you need for a rousing evening of Beirut: 16 oz. cups and four balls in one easy to grab package.

Wow, and all along I thought Miller Light/Bud Light/Natty Light/Coors Light/Beast/Busch/PBR were perfectly fine beer pong beers. What was I thinking?! "You were probably drunk." I was probably happy.

Thanks to Carlos, who only plays malt liquor pong because he's a real man. A real man, or on a budget?

There are Comments.
  • Pretty sure that Atari owns the name "Pong." I wonder if they licensed it to these guys.

  • n_a_a_s

     pffft... Is atari even around to hold that claim?  Last I heard they had exhausted their efforts  trying to one-up the chinese ping pong association

  • Emmitt Morgans

     Atari is still around... and they still make games, but it's obviously very different from what it used to be.

    As for the name "Pong"... it's *possible*.  I mean, George Lucas has claim to the term "droid" and that's just an abbreviation of "android"... so I guess(?)

  • n_a_a_s

    FAAAAIIILLLL it should be sold in plastic cups

  • Wouldn't the beer go flat?

  • n_a_a_s

     Well.... yes, but since when is fresh beer important in beer pong?  Besides, someone else could profit in selling tupperware lids that fit the can

  • Or someone could profit from selling them cups.

  • raditzzzz

    the top of the can should be able to come off, so you can use it like the plastic cups.  that would make it more relevant to the actual game.
