    Not sure if I should be impressed or disgusted.
    I cannot stand Budweiser.

    However, that Sugarlands Moonshine is really good.

    150 cases of Bud at his New Year’s Eve party….that’s got to be a wild bunch he runs with.

    Sounds like a high spirited guy. I'd betcha even with his endorsements and contractual agreements he could support a local craft brewery and buy some product from them. But I'm sure he gets what he likes. I do not enjoy Budweiser however Bud Light in a Chelada mix is quite good. Cheers to their party!
    I do enjoy a 1X per year "Municher" party with about 170 people. 4 days & 4 nights. 42-44 barrels of German beer. Spaten, Paulaner, Hacker Pschorr. Sunner Kolsch or something like Bitburger or Warsteiner is not out of the question for premium. A couple of killer American crafty brews will wind their way into the mix if the Beer Poobah is adventurous. Always 4 taps: Premium, 2 Oktoberfests and an Optimator. The party just celebrated it's 48th yr. Rule #1: No posting photos containing anyone's image online anywhere. Just shitcan your phone. The last couple yrs I parked/positioned the keg trailers. This was my original Beer Advocate profile pic! Prost!

    Dancing, table traversing, variety shows (previously called "talent" shows) but due to lack of overall talent it was decidedly reduced to, and quickly I might add, to a "variety" show. Good thing. But seriously, big tent, live music within, big kitchen/cafeteria, camping, wood-fired sauna, giant fresh lake w/no motorized anything...you bring it you take it away and we are 1/4 of the park's annual income. Except getting thru Covid, no changes in sight. XXOO BEER

    Sounds like a good time out there.

    When I wanna party and have a blast, I hang with my BMC friends. I crush some budweisers, they drink some gueuze and double barrel stouts I brought.

    When I wanna get a symposium on various struggles, craft beer guy, its your time to shine and also complain about what other people are drinking.

    My calculator says that it's 3,600 cans. 365 days in a year, that's less than 10 a day.

    In another unit of measure, it's only 1-1/2 pallets (assuming Inbev uses the standard 100 cases per pallet).

    You got this.

    I did 150 cases X (assuming 30 beers each)
    I did 30 (beers a case assuming it’s cans) X 150. I automatically imagine it as a 30 rack but I forgot to have some class and think about the bottles lol

    Cases are 24, that's the standard. I don't know what term the industry uses for the oddball stuff like 18 & 30 packs.

    @jesskidden ?

    Yeah, by industry definition a "Case" of beer is 24 X 12oz. bottles/cans, or 2.25 gallons. Everything else, from what I've read on wholesalers' price lists are just called "18 pk" or "30pk", etc. I haven't seen it lately but there used to be an industry measurement "CE" = "Case Equivalent", so those two odd sizes are, in theory (w/12 oz bottles) - .75 CE and 1.25 CE. With 7oz. or 16 oz. packages, well, hope you carry a pocket calculator. (Yeah, I know, there's probably an app on your phone. Not mine. And it's in my truck or at home, anyway).

    About 20 years ago or so, I had to buy someone a, uh, quantity of Coors Light as a kind of "Thank You" gift - more than a six, but, hey - I didn't want to go overboard. Now, I pretty much just knew 6 packs and cases - that's what I typically bought of my brands in my market.

    I, of course, wanted the best deal but that's simply math. (I thought :grimacing:). Geez, I went over to that unfamiliar door in a out of the way liquor store (didn't want to get recognized buying that product in my neighborhood :grin:) and my head was spinning.

    Well, since it was a big store and long walk to the register, I think I just sampled them by weight and picked out a package that I wouldn't mind carrying all the way to the front. (2 40's woulda worked great, one in each hand, but I think he had a preference for aluminum...in fact, at bars w/o cans he'd buy a bottle of Budweiser. Go figure.).
