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?
