  1. 1. Whats more cost effective Kegs or 30 Packs...

    • Just buy racks and shut up...
    • Buy a keg and charge for cups...


Recommended Posts

I have been having parties the last 4 weekends and everyweekend my roomates I buy 2 30 packs each equaling 120 beers for the night for us and our guests. I have been telling these guys that we should just get a keg and then we can charge for cups and recoup some of the expenses...We are having a party tonight and before we make the beer run I need to put my foot down and try to knock some sense into these dudes...What are your opinions?

when i was a beer swilling youngster, we figured out that a keg is approximately 7.5 cases of beer.

it is far more cost effective to buy kegs

but only after you have bought your own tap

before that. it's only a little cost effective, and of course depends on beer quality

renting a tap is one of the places they getcha

 

i've noticed as well, kegs draw a crowd and get people to shell out cash more than a promise of a fridge full of beer will.

Taps are only $40 or so on deposit, rent a keg and tap one time, fail on the tap return and take the hit... from then on it's KEG CITY!

If cleanup is an issue, t's a lot easier to spill a cup than can or a bottle.

 

My fave is just a shitload of 40's. Three bucks a bottle, zero spillage, everyone feels special, and that classic Snoop Dogg shot of a fridge packed to the brim with 40's.

see i told this kid this but now the argument is "its not a frat party why are we going to charge people?"

 

 

I say cause I am broke and cant afford to pay for other peoples beer this week...

 

other thing is we could leave a donation cup...

I think this sentence could be rearranged into a much better plan.

1) The kegs are definitely cheaper if you're doing this on the reglae.

 

2) You can go the option above and forfeit the $40.00 deposit on the store tap... but those rentals have been used over and over for so long they're probably going to quit on you real fast.

 

3) Better option:

http://www.beveragefactory.com/refrigerators/beer/sanyo.shtml

which comes with a 5lb CO2 tank, no more pumping. We had a homemade setup like this at a house I was at, nothing but awesome. Just have to clean out the lines if you're not using it for a while. CO2 refills are dirt cheap, and worth it IMO. The only catch is you'll need different adapters for the different valve types on Euro vs. American beers.

 

 

You can build this whole setup for around $200 if you just buy the regulators and tap, get a CO2 tank from the local welding supply, and use an old half height refrigerator. Unfortunately I didn't do much of the actual construction so I can't tell you much more than that.

it definitely has saved money, and we get just as drunk..

not to mention its great to not have to run out to the store when you run out of booze

i just prefer drinking good beer out of glass... the plastic cup just doesn't have that special feel to it... but if its just to get drunk--fuck it, get a cheap keg, and drop 40 on the tap.

 

or just get a few bottles of vodka and do shots all night... thats my style.

30 packs?? ill drink a 30 pack to myself.

 

def get a keg, maybe 2 depending on the amount of people.

 

if its a grip of people and a party until 6 am then we usually get 2 kegs and 4 or 5 bottles.
