O.k., maybe I just want to know. I'm thinking of having a little Super soiree this Sunday and want "the best bang for my buck" (as the 60's ad wizards used to say).

Buying a bigger quantity of beer for a party is a whole different ball game than picking up a 6 or 12 pack to bring to a party. The latter allows you to get exactly what you want (and you don't mind spending the little bit of extra money). So what to get to please the crowd that won't break my bank? I was thinking of those Kirkland variety cases they sell at Costco. I remember being surprised at the quality of each beer, considering the price (which I think ends up being less than a dollar each). Any other suggestions?
