Default Having a party, want to offer a few, but not the whole keg!!

Hey,
This may or may not have been brought up before, tried to look and didnt find any threads, so here it goes..

We are having a party in a few days, and I am more than happy to share a few brews from my kegs, but I dont want people to think (there will be quite a few here) that they are fair game for the whole night... I know that sounds selfish, but I am trying to make some of this last!! The IPA i have is pretty damn good, and I dont want to find it empty the next time i want one haha...

anyone ever feel like this/have a good way of curbing it without sounding like a jerk? lol...

Transfer the beer from keg to growlers or pitchers and serve it to the guest that way.

Your way (growlers) is more honorable though

Im a big fan of the in-law diptube, but don’t really like the idea of buying and cutting a new diptube just to keep greedy paws off my brew.

Growler idea is nice, but if you have a kegerator people are going to want to drink off the tap, not pouring from growlers.

If I were in your situation (and I have been frequently) I would counter pressure bottle fill however many beers you want to keep for yourself and store them (away from any partygoers), then allow the animals to ‘kill the keg’. It’s always fun killing the keg! Then you have room to move another batch into that keg. And you will have your stash left over in the bottles.

Search for Biermuncher’s Counter Pressure Bottle Filler if you don’t already have one.

Challenge yourself to brew that IPA again

But that dip tube idea is a classic

I don't have in laws but sometimes my friends bring their friends who are more than welcome to a pint or two but once they have killed a sixer I pull out the PBR. most of the time they don't even notice haha.
