FRG needs a Beer Pong team!

This weekend’s Cape Town Festival of Beer at Hamilton’s Rugby Club will be having a GIANT Beer Pong Tournament, and we need a team to represent Front Row Grunt!

The Festival will feature up to 200 beers from micro and mega brewers across South Africa as well as abroad, and is jam-packed with all things beer such as guided beer tours, blind tastings, food and beer pairings and free beer sampling as well as live music!

What is new, though, is that the Festival will be having a GIANT Beer Pong Tournament throughout the weekend. Unlike traditional beer pong this will consist of giant balls which will need to be thrown into giant 1.5m high cups!

The tournament kicks off on Friday with a Giant Beer Pong Media Tournament, which will see SA foodie and lifestyle media go head to head, and then will continue throughout the weekend!

With Tank being at some rugby dinner, we need a team of 5 to represent The Grunt on Friday evening please … Known as “The Grunters” your prowess with beer in hand will be as important as your prowess at Beer Pong! If you think you have what it takes, and have a 5 person team at the ready for Friday evening (in Cape Town), leave a comment on the blog telling us why it should be you and your 4 mates who get the tickets to the Beer Festival, and the honour of representing the Front Row Grunt at Beer Pong! Best comment wins … Comp closes on Wednesday afternoon.

Africas biggest Beer Pong tournamentPrizes for the winning team include beer hampers, and of course the glory of being crowned the Cape Town Festival of Beer Giant Beer Pong Champion.

Beer Pong Teams will consist of five members aside and can be entered on the day. Teams are also encouraged to get creative with their team names and outfits and should be prepared to experience Beer Pong like never before!

  1. Hello Grunters!

    I am part of the Xhosa Kingz; the self-proclaimed beer pong champions of Cape Town. Upon winning numerous tournaments at Forex (in observatory – check out their Facebook page), our style of play has been commended as having: Built in Gees; Patriotism to the max; always willing to smash it in anyone’s face (a beer that is). We sing and dance – and we make sure we sink it in the hole! Coz’ that’s just how we roll.

    So these tickets would really be amazing as we would showcase our suburban X-hosa culture; we enjoy our beer and we definitely are future frontrowgrunters!

    Go Xhosa-Kingz!

    • Righto boys … The team is yours! Represent Front Row Grunt proudly, and well, pease :) We will be in touch re getting the tickets and info to you … Congratulations!
