Like I said, I have some, but not much confidence in my results..I didn't do much math, I figured out the various patterns and how many times each would occur. And yes I was drinking homebrew.

Permutation: One possible combination of items out of a larger set of items. For example, with the set of numbers 1, 2 and 3, there are six possible permutations: 12, 21, 13, 31, 23 and 32

Homework: If you have four taps on your kegger, how many different ales can you blend assuming a half pint glass, two or more beers per sample, no less than 1 oz. of any given beer and restricting yourself to whole ounces?

Bonus points if you make it half way through the test without passing out!
In an 8 ounce glass that must have whole ounces of at least two beers, i think it works like this:

if glass one has 7 ounces, three beers can be made (7,1,0,0) (7,0,1,0) and (7,0,0,1).

if glass one has 6 ounces, six beers can be made (6,0,1,1) (6,0,0,2) (6,0,2,0)
(6,1,0,1) (6,1,1,0) (6,2,0,0)

see the pattern here? its like adding a row of bowling pins ...

glass one with 5 ounces is 10 beers
glass one with 4 ounces is 15 beers
glass one with 3 ounces is 21 beers
glass one with 2 ounces is 28 beers
glass one with 1 ounce is 36 beers
glass one with 0 ounces is 45 beers

6+10+15+21+28+36+45 is 161 beers.
