Does anyone have suggestions on how to calculate an amount to budget for a bar? Our venue allows us to bring in our own alcohol, we just have to hire a licensed bartender to pour it. Is there a formula for helping to estimate how much $$ to allot by # of people per hour? I have no idea around how much we should budget for this…

If you can return unopened cans/bottles, Id say better safe than sorry and estimate 2-3 beers per person. Some will drink 4 or 5, some will drink none (I wouldnt have any beer!).

The rule of thumb I heard and am using is to estimate one drink per person per hour. I am having a 5 hour reception, so I am estimating 5 drinks a person.

I would say 3-5 drinks per person.
