Drinking beer while playing beer pong is common sense, but we all can agree that the amount of beer we go through is not that ideal for the coin. Of course we all like cheap things but with beer it’s better if you don’t (it’s really a headache guaranteed). So I thought to myself: “Why has no one written about this before?” Since I have couldn’t find any articles I decided to do the research myself, so that you no longer have to do it. I browsed the Internet and ended up with a choice of the 5 Best Beers that I believe are both good in taste and prices! Hope you enjoy.
PABST BLUE RIBBON
Pabst Blue Ribbon is brewed the same way as it was in 1844. Brewed with a combination of 2 & 6-row malted Barley (Something to do with Barley heads), selected grains and American and European hops. Pabst used to be the go-to drink for probably your granddad. Since then the drinking of Pabst has been declining but millennials seem to love it right now. However, this beer has been transformed into one of the ‘new’ hipsters beers. It is a light, refreshing and first and foremost cheap beer. Perfect for a Beer pong match!

MILLER HIGH LIFE
Miller High Life was launched as the flagship of the Miller Brewing Company in 1903. It is brewed with a blend of Malted Barley, Galena hops from the Pacific Northwest and Miller yeast (sounds tasty). This is known as one the cheap but also better beers. Some even call it the champagne among the cheap beers. It is made with a special hop formula that prevents the beer from skunking. It is a really thirst-quenching drink for a hot day, so make sure the pack it for summer parties.

Narraganset is known as the beer of the Boston Red Sox. Between 1981 and 2005, Narraganset, also commonly referred to as Gansett (Name in short). Gansett has had a few bad years business wise. However, a group of investors brought it back in 2005 and the beers can be found almost everywhere, nowadays. Gansett is brewed with Iowa corn and that sweet, vegetable flavour is the most enduring among the few flavours of Beer. It is one of the better cheaper beers, according to “experienced” drinkers. Everyone if familiar with cheap beer that tastes like dishwater, but that is not the case with Gansett. It is a light beer, which is easy to drink (maybe even to shotgun). Definitely recommended.
4,8% ABV / 12-PACK approx. $12 / 150 calories (12 oz. Portion)
Budweiser, the classic, the staple, the standard for American beers at least by Dutch Standards. To our defense, you also might think we only drink Heineken here… Anyhow, back to the topic, Budweiser: Who doesn’t know it?

The Rolling Rock beer is originally from Latrobe, Pennsylvania. The brewers worked on an aggressive expansion of the brand on the back of a green bottle, a horse logo and a “Full” flavour profile. A cheap beer in a beautiful green bottle, that was the ultimate idea. It is crunchy and has
