Question about drinks instead of food: We are planning a wedding for this summer and want to offer people some good beer (we're hoping for Sam Adams Summer Ale), but we are on a tight budget and want to keep costs down. (We're hosting it on our own site, so we can serve our own booze instead of worrying about a liquor licence.) We want to serve it in bottles so that we don't have to pay extra for glassware. The wedding's on the Maine coast, but we were thinking we'd probably buy it here and take it up.
So, where would you recommend for the best prices on large quantities of bottles of Sam Summer, or beer of similar quality? We'll be buying a lot, so places with bulk discounts (like for buying multiple cases) would be ideal. Should we go to Costco? (We don't have a membership but are considering one.) New Hampshire? An independent store in the suburbs?
