I totally get that and I don't think it's exclusive to keggers. From personal experience this happens just as readily with bottled beer. The controlling factor seems to be availability and not method of delivery.

I have a rule that takes care of that. When you are drinking at my house, you can only have as much to drink as I do and since I limit myself to one bottle per day, that's all anyone else gets too. Haven't had a drunk here ever except for the neighbor that was drunk when he arrived and he didn't get any beer.

That simply would not work for me... I have 6 taps; if I limited myself to 1 pint per day I'd be brewing once per year... I currently make 20 gallons per month. Ahem

Well. I bet your parties are a blast..



Life's good when there aren't any drama-addicts in your life.

If they had one of these at every party or bar, life would be much less annoying.

Maybe I'm just too old to party like some of you but when I was younger I tried the drinking and found that I had complete memory lapse at times, not fuzzy memory, total loss. When you have photographic memory and then have total blanks it can bother you. I was afraid that I would do something really stupid when drunk and not remember it at all, wake up in jail and have no defense so I quit trying to get drunk. It just seemed too dangerous for my life.
