I read the best way to figure out how much alcohol to buy is one drink per person per hour. Then they further broke it down by giving each type of alcohol a certain percentage of the total number of drinks. If you are only doing beer, that makes it much much easier!

Are you serving just beer or other drink options?

sarahroby:  I’ve seen quite a few really useful breakdowns for this type of thing particularly on pinterest – google (or search pinterest) for ‘how much alcohol to serve’, you’ll find stuff like this 🙂

We had 165 people including a lot of beer drinkers, and we served just beer and wine.  We also did a welcome BBQ for about 120 the day before.  We got 5 kegs all together, 2 domestic and 3 microbrew.  We had maybe 1/2 keg left over that we polished off the next day.

So I’d say 2 if you’ll have a lot of other types of drinks or not a lot of boozehounds…. 3 if you want to play it safe.
