Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) February 11, 2014
Elevate Brands, LLC announced today the launch of a sustainable beer pong kit under the King of Beer Pong™ brand. These new cups have changed the face of one of America’s most beloved drinking games.
Unlike other beer pong kits which use wasteful plastic cups, King of Beer Pong™ Beer Pong Kits are constructed from a high-quality stainless steel and offer an environmentally-friendly alternative for beer pong enthusiasts across the globe.
"In college, we were fanatics about beer pong and would play almost every week. It was insane how popular it was on campus, but we also knew it came at a cost", said founders Jed Travis and Jim Jones, two best friends who dropped out of college to launch King of Beer Pong™.
"One day we did a quick calculation about how many plastic cups we burned through, and realized how freaking wasteful it was. On an average night at our parties, we would easily use over 100 cups not including those used for drinking," said Jed.
Jim and Jed’s decision to develop the world’s first reusable beer pong kit started over a year ago when they decided to test launch the product at their local bar in Los Angeles. Initially, people had reservations about using stainless steel over plastic.
"We told everybody to give it a try," said Jed. "People were freaking out over how it changed the game play, but eventually we created a loyal group of players who now play with nothing else BUT stainless steel. In fact, they say playing in steel is more fun."
Eventually their friends began spreading the word about these new beer pong kits and they generated a following online of loyal users mostly through word of mouth.
"We were stunned by the response. After our launch here in L.A., we started getting orders from all over the world like Hong Kong and the UK and Australia asking us for our kits. Demand outstripped our budget, so we ended up running out of stock after we blew through our first few thousand units and people had to wait up to six months to get their kit," said Jonathan Mafrice, President of Elevate Brands.
Each King Of Beer Pong Kit™ Championship Edition Kit, according to Mafrice, includes 16 ounce stainless steel cups made from a high-grade 304 Stainless Steel and tournament quality ping pong balls.
Soon to be available at most major retailers and currently available at http://www.kingofbeerpong.com, the King of Beer Pong Kit- Championship Edition sells for $49.99 for a six piece set and $79.99 for a 12 piece set.
"Until you've played with my cups and balls, you just haven’t really played," said company founder Jed. "I double dog dare you to try it. We promise it will be the best decision you could have ever made."
