Oh ok. I have to buy like ten six packs, and I thought it was the price of the imported shit.

I don't know why you have to. All I can say, I hate some of those beers that comes in the sampler. Cranberry, yuck. I can't even buy six packs here. Yes, I drink Milwaukee's Best, and Genny, and Genny Cream Ale. I'm cheap. 30 pack for $13.

Go buy 10 12 packs of Steel Reserve Malt Liquor (about the same price) and get those whitebread peeps TORE UP!

The price of any beer depends on a lot of factors specific to your locale, e.g., state and local taxes, distributor markup, retailer markup, etc. The only way to know what any particular Samuel Adams branded beer costs (there are a bunch of different ones) is to look at your local retailers.
Or ask your brother.

I swear to God, I think Steel Reserve is the basis behind Samuel Jackson's Beer. Three cans and you are lookin' for some hood rats.

A six pack of bottles: around six dollars. A new car: $15,000-$125,000 New Auto Insurance: $1000-$3500/ six months. The other driver's, passengers' and/OR bystanders' lives: PRICELESS

Save yourself some money and buy a half or quarter keg. You're buying enough beer.

No, while some flavored 'shit' is imported, most of the unflavored 'shit' comes from Milwaukee, St. Louis, and Denver.
To save you the time of figuring it out 10 six packs is 5.625 gallons and a quarter keg (which costs less) is 7.875 gallons. For a real party, you need a half keg or 15.75 gallons.
Do not worry about buying too much beer. Invite your friends from alt.beer - we know beer!

I'm pretty sure he means 1/4 barrel and 1/2 barrel. A barrel refers to not only a vessel but a volume of 31 gallons (36 gallons in England). Whereas a keg only refers to a vessel.

I think in most regions of the US, it's sorta *understood* that the term "1/4 barrel" is a shorthand expression, meaning "a 1/4 [barrel sized] keg".
Not true, originally at least. The term "keg" (at least in 1946's edition of the Master Brewers Assoc. of America's "The Practical Brewer") was defined as: 1/4 barrel = 7 3/4 gallons - "keg" or "quarter". The other sizes (31, 15.5, 3 7/8) were called "Full" "Half" and "Pony" (both the former and latter all but obsolete). Note, too, that "pony" now means "1/4 barrel" in many areas, except Cincinnati, and I still can't figure THAT one out.

I just find it confusing.
Huh, you learn something new everyday. I would have thought that would be the other way around. When I hear someone just calling it a "keg" referring to its size I think of a half-barrel. I didn't realize that a Pony was only 3 7/8 gallons, wow. I always thought a pony was a 1/4 barrel.

The above rates reflect what one can expect to pay after a drunk- driving accident resulting in one or more deaths and/or injuries. Remember, I'm not an actuary, I just play one in RSPW.

When I was in college (Wisconsin), a "pony" was a keg that was smaller than a quarter-barrel-- I don't recall if they were 1/8- or 1/6-barrel. Needless to say, in Wisconsin we didn't see too many poney barrels at parties.

Around these parts whenever anybody gets a keg for a party you can pretty much bank on them having a "Kill the Keg" party the week afterwards.
Good times, good times...
