Buying Beer in Bulk - I love a nice beer, and by that I mean decent beer, not just drinking for the sake of drinking! It’s quite common to buy beer in bulk for a party or large gathering. Keg parties have been a student staple for a long time but normally that is picking up the cheapest and nastiest stuff you can find just to satisfy your guests looking for liquid confidence.
But how about buying beer in bulk for general relaxed home drinking. I’m not talking about picking up a 6 pack from the gas station but actually sourcing a beer you love and then buying either a very large batch of bottles or a whole keg.
Buying Beer in Bulk: Finding a beer
The important thing is that you don’t buy a beer you will get sick of. I also recommend you stay away from the Budweiser and Coors of the world and pick something from a local brewery. In bulk the cost will be significantly lower, you will be feeding the local economy and you will possibly be able to find a healthier beer with less chemicals with genuine love put into its creation.
Also don’t go after gimmicky beers. I once had an awesome Magic Hat Beet beer (the original one before the did a milder more lager like beet beer) that was bright red and tasted quite sweet. Great for a few pints but if I had purchased that beer in bulk I would have become bored or it or sick of it pretty quickly.
