I wanted to get some bees opinions to see if I’m on the right track…
5 of my friends and I are throwing a shower for one of our friends. It is a couples shower where we will have beer and a punch. We’re expecting 25 people but they only want to get 2 cases of beer. They are also wanting to play flip cup and beer pong (it’s a tailgate themed shower).
Apparently I’m the only one in my group of friends that thinks 2 cases of beer will not be enough. I know that not everyone will drink beer. But if only 7 people (probably guys) have beer, that is only 3 beers a person and 3 beers to play flip cup and beer pong with. There isn’t a time limit on how long the shower would last but I’m thinking about 3 hours.
They are all on a budget, but I’m thinking that even just 1 more case would be able to cover it. My thought is that you would rather have enough beer than not enough. Most guys don’t enjoy the showers anyway, so we better have something for them!
Anyone have any insight??

You definately need more beer. Especially if it’s a tail gate themed party? No one wants to run out of beer at a party…

i agree… you definitely need at least 1 more case of beer, especially if you plan on playing drinking games. I would get 1 or 2 more to be safe. you definitely don’t want to run out of drinks at the party.

I also agree beer pong takes a lot of beer and 2 cases is not enough.

If it were my friends we would need far more than 2 cases…probably more like 4!

What about a keg (1/4)? How much would that run you versus 3 cases of beer? I am not intuned with this information but maybe a keg can solve your problem. Do research though, I am not sure how many cases of beer equal a keg and the costs…

Definitely keep in mind that each game of beer pong takes 4 beers to play. You definitely need more and it would be embarassing (and annoying!) to run out of beer. I would say three cases, if not four. I always overestimate when it comes to alcohol ;o)

I think you can get around 150-200 pints of beer out of a keg. With the kind of party you are throwing that might be your best option. Something like Coors Light would be pretty cheap and it would ensure that you wouldn’t run out of beer!

I did price out a 1/2 keg-which would serve about 75, 12 oz beers. But my friends think that is too pricey.

I have told them that I will get 4 cases, and whatever cases we don’t touch I will pay for out of my own pocket. We’ll see how they take it though!!
