If your guests aren't beer snobs or EACs, go cheap. If they are, you'd better have a few kegs of IPA, Stout, APA, Lager, Wit, and something Scottish or Irish on tap or else suffer the consequences.

I buy a lot of BMC, then a few craft brews that are reasonably priced (stuff I know that I like or want to try). Most of my friends stick with the BMC. Some branch out to the commercial craft brews. Those same few drink my homebrew as well. The truth is, most of my friends are proud to drink REALLY cheap beer. So, I leave them to it.

I usually serve BYOB

Or...Killian's if I'm feeling generous. Lately been buying AmberBock instead though

I don't remember the last time I had commercial beer for a gathering.

Guess I'm kind of snobby like that.

Homebrew only. Someone else can bring the BMC.

BMC is cheaper, and we're in tough times. I'll supply some homebrew, but unless it's a "BYO Ingredients," party, they're mostly on their own for craft brew.

Times are tough around here. Maybe when my wife goes back to work I'll throw extravagant parties again. For now though, it's BMC, limited HB, and some store-bought craft.

Every party we have here, people bring their own. If I have something I've made that I want people to drink, I'll let them know.

I'll usually get the cheapest reusable bottles for parties. It tends to be Sam Adams of some sort.
