    Obviously it depends on alcohol content and flavor, but a lot of the beers in this larger bottle format are 9-12% ABV. Do you drop it down to a wine sized serving (4-6 ounces), or do closer to 12-16 ounce servings?

    Flavor wise, this particular question is dealing with serving a few bottles of Goose Island's Lolita at a large dinner event. I'll be putting it into white wine glasses, so I was thinking of going 6-8 ounces. Let me know what you think.

    Thanks - Emu

    Assuming I'm not trying to stretch the bottle further, I normally get around 4 glasses out of a 750

    Hmm never thought about it, but its probably in the 8 ounce range to make it seem like I am making the bottle last. It probably depends on the type of beer too. Sours, stouts and barleywines, and other big beers are in the smaller ounce range. Can't recall too many lighter style 750 options, but I would most likely pour those heavier.

    Treat it like wine and pour accordingly - 5oz should get you 5 glasses.

    I not sure what you mean, I drink the whole bottle as always, the old 22oz mug holds most of it.
    Sharing with the wife when its something she likes. she drinks like 6oz and I get the rest.:grinning:

    Now she does not buy them anymore, but when Duchesse de Bourgogne was around 10-11 bucks at 750 she would get 3 glass (8oz aprox) out of 1. Sometimes over a whole week!

    not me, its just a big 2 beer taste for me.

    Once that imported Belgian got to 12 plus she said fuck them assholes. kind of like me and my favorite beer Orval, not paying 7 bucks for 330ml...

    I will clone that beer if it kills me....

    Never seen a 765ml . I been bombers, and 750.

    I don't do much sharing of my beer, so generally 750 ml goes into a 25.6 ounce serving for myself.

    Depends on the amount of people. I usually do betwen 4-8 oz. HOWEVER, if it just me and another person (or just myself), I will pour liberally!

    8 people, plus 2-3 people would want a taste. I am thinking 3 bottles

    So your question is "I have 8 people. How many bottles should I bring?"

    The way you phrased it is kind of confusing. But if you have 8 people, I would say 3 pours per bottle at roughly 8 oz a piece. So 3 bottles.

    My pattern is familiar if splitting with 1-3 people: I'll slightly overpour three services, then go for a fourth--doh! The only difference is something designed for a bigger crowd to taste, in which case, I max out at mmmaybe a sixth serving. Pouring any less feels like a stingy share.
