The benefits of social media and an online presence.

Want to have a get together with your friends but tired of the same old parties?

How about a beer exchange?

Here are the rules:

Choose A Location: Your house? Your best friends house? Despite the name of the party, try not to have your beer exchange at anything other than one of your friends’ houses.

Invites: Send out cool funny beer themed invites or just let your friends know via social media. Either way, make sure you only choose friends over 21 and include the time, place, and rules.

Rules: Speaking of rules, here they are! Each person brings a case of their favorite beer (24 in a case). Something interesting or exotic, but nothing you would see at a common frat party.

The idea is that you give each person, 12 attendees, 2 bottles from your case. Try to get everyone to explain why they chose the beer (or cider in my case) that they did and where they first tried it. At the end of the exchange, you go home with a case full of tons of different and interesting beers for the price of the original case.

Just remember that the number of attendees is up to you! Maybe you and your friends are just hanging out and want to have a mini beer exchange. Go for it! Grab six friends and six six-packs.

And maybe you’ve read all of this and the final reaction is still: Beer? Gross. That’s fine too! Just switch the beer for something else. Like your favorite wine or desserts.

Good luck!

  1. I enjoyed reading this! I thought that it was actually a great idea because I had never heard of this type of party before, which I thought was quite clever! I thought that this idea was interesting as well. Although this isn’t my concentration, I think that event planning could be quite fun! Great post!

    • Thank you! I got invited to one for the holiday season and I loved the idea of benefiting from the combined effort of everyone. It fit right into the event planning topic too! Thanks for commenting!
