Default 1st Batch Ever-Holiday Ale ready for party.

Just want to say thanks to the people on this forum who contribute so much knowledge here to help out noobies like myself! Couldn't have done it without you guys.

Here is a pic of it in homemade crates ready for my buddies Christmas party.

Congratulations on your first batch! If you crafted the beer with as much attention to detail as you did the crates and labels, that will be one fine brew.

Do you generally ask the people to put the beers back into the crate? Or do you repurchase labels / bottles?

Just wondering as I think some of these costs can add up quick!

Looks great though! Congrats on first batch

Not sure how we are going to handle that yet. Bottles are main expense so that is the main concern. The labels cost $5 if even that. We probably will just ask people to not throw bottles away and collect them at the end of the night.
