What is a Beer Bong

Ah, the good ol’ beer bong. Whether you’re an experienced drinker or a novice just starting out, there’s no denying that a beer bong is an essential part of any beer-drinking experience.

From backyard barbecues to college basements, people have been using beer bongs to take their drinking experience to the next level.

But what is a beer bong and how exactly do you use it? Let’s find out!

Overview of Beer Bong

A beer bong is a device used for consuming large amounts of beer, quickly and effectively. It consists of a tube with one end in the mouth and the other in the bottle or can of beer.

As the user begins to drink from the tube, gravity causes the rest of the liquid to flow down quickly into their mouth.

With some specific models, users may even be able to add ice cubes or soda mix in order to make their drinking experience more enjoyable.

How To Use A Beer Bong?

Using a beer bong is simple once you know how:

  • First and foremost, fill up your selected container with your desired amount of beverage (usually 250 ml – liter).
  • Then attach your tube securely onto one end of your container.
  • Gently tilt your container at an angle so that the beverage will pour into your mouth when you begin drinking from it.
  • When ready, put your mouth onto the tube and start drinking from it quickly in order for gravity to take its course!
  • Make sure you are aware of any nearby walls/furniture and practice caution when using – spilling/splashing can occur!

Benefits Of Using A Beer Bong?

There are several great benefits that come along with using a beer bong:

  • Speed – when compared with drinking from cans/bottles, consuming your beverage via a beer bong allows for much quicker consumption as gravity does all the work for you!
  • Variety – there are many different types and designs available on the market so it’s easy to find one that best meets your needs (see “Popular Types Of Beer Bongs” below).
  • Fun – no party or gathering would be complete without having someone willing to take on the challenge of downing an entire bottle or can via a tube!

Popular Types Of Beer Bongs?

When it comes to types and designs of beer bongs there really is something for everyone:

  • Standard Tube – this variant typically consists of two separate pieces; one end connects directly to a bottle/can while the other has an airtight seal allowing for easy securement onto either side.
  • Shrimp & Worm – this unique design features both something resembling a shrimp as well as something distinctively ‘worm-like’ protruding from either end allowing for securement into whichever object desired (usually cans).
  • Portable Beer Pouch – this lightweight yet durable design won’t take up too much space while traveling but still allows you to get drinks done quickly & efficiently thanks to its built-in straws & flexible pouring spout!

Safety Measures When Using A Beer Bong?

It’s important always practice safety precautions when consuming large amounts of alcohol in one sitting especially when doing so rapidly via gravity-assisted tools like a ‘beer bong’:

  • Always consume responsibly according to government-imposed restrictions & guidelines e.g don’t drink if under 18 years old etc…
  • Don’t overdo it – know where your limits are so that you don’t make yourself sick on alcohol poisoning (call 000 if experiencing issues)
  • Keep hydrated by taking sips from water between drinks & opting for lighter beers e.g lagers rather than ales etc…


All in all, using a ‘beer bong’ can spice up any occasion but make sure that safety comes first at all times! What type will you try next time you’re out enjoying some drinks with friends?
