Default How much beer?

Since things are slowing down and I'm busy with clean up ( as a lot of us are) thought I would post a trivia question . No , you don't get free raffle tickets for the correct answer Adk!

How much beer will these coolers hold and what 3 SBI members could empty them the fastest?


My bet is Haynes will come up with some off the wall answer !

I would include Tom , ( Isle Harbor Maple Farm ) and Dr Tim as 2 of the three .

I am gonna guess that each of them will hold 3 30 packs, with ice to keep them cold for a couple days. I never drank with anyone here, but I would like to apply for one of the top 3 spots.

I believe one of those coolers can hold 10-12 24 packs of Coors light NOT IN THE CASES. That cooler only needs a small amount of ice on top to drip down onto the soon to be exposed next layer. I would also inform you that it will float down a river if your latches don't break like mine did. I will also nominate a newly converted Bush Lite drinker to a Coors light man JOE SCHAFFER glfisherman

You didn't defile those with clear 2.5% sap did you??

If your'e going to drink it quick, the 4 big ones will each hold 30 gallons (no cans or kegs) of good dark (grade c) homebrew - be sure the darn things are clean first, though. Put a hose on the drain and go for it. If you'll be drinking it slow, probably only one keg each, or 24-30 750ml bottles.

Ok, now we gotta hear more about the floating down the river story. Were you on it, in it or just hanging under it?

Get a few of these and about 10 of your friends, family and wives and hit the Platte river. Stick the cooler in a truck inner tube and rope it to my raft. When it hits a sharp rock and pops the raft will float but it drags on big rocks so you need to drink fast to lighten the load.

Four of the coolers are 150 qt which would make a nice raft on the Platte! :). I do think Haynes could easily squirm his way and actually fit in the 150 qt cooler, as long as his arthritis is acting up .
Yep, these were used for sap , picked a few up on my way to Leme last year in Ohio and Pa. Thanks Craigslist, btw picking up a 300 gallon milk tank on friday :) . Coolers worked great for what little sap flowed this year.

LMF, Haynes was probably just in his bath tub! He gets confused sometimes.

The nice thing about drinking a LOT of beer and rafting down the river in a inner tube is you can regulate the water temperature as you see fit.
