Bucket of beers

Recommended Posts

I'm heading out next Friday and I'm trying to get an idea of how much money I need to bring for my S&S (I secure with a credit card but put money on it to cover almost all).

 

Does anyone know the recent price for a bucket of beer? It was $26 last time I drank on board, just want to make sure it didn't go up much more then $30. The wine I normally get went up from $26 to $32. I know $6 isn't much but my OCD and "list o' money" get uncomfy when it's off by more then a few bucks.

 

Thanks in advance!!

My opinion is, the "discount" in buying a bucket of beer is nil. The winner is the server who sold it to you. (Good for them!)

Not sure what you mean "The winner is the server".... If I buy 4 or 5 individuals from the same person its likely more gratuity. He actually gets less if I buy a bucket instead of buying them separately ...

The discount is basically 50 cents off a beer. So $2 savings on a bucket. Not bad I’ll take anything I can get for a discount. And you can mix beers. We always get 2 beers my wife wants and 2 I want.

Corona. Dos Equis. Sierra Nevada pale ale. Probably most of the imports except of course fosters. Also they usually have local craft beers from port you sail from. I forget the one they have in Miami. We sail out of Baltimore a lot and they have Heavy Seas beer like Loose Cannon.

Thank you for all the replies!!

 

I'm going to budget $30 + 15% + $2 tip. $36.50 per bucket max

 

We love getting buckets of beer during the movies. They stay iced down and we don't have to keep searching for a server when we're done with the first.

Okay, silly question. Do all the beers in the bucket come opened? Or can hubby save a few for later?

They'll come closed! We usually buy a bucket to keep a few cold back in the cabin!

You do realize the 15% is a $4.50 tip.
