Calculating Servings
Number of members and guests over 21 X hours of event) = number of servings 
For example: 
75 members and guests over 21 x 2 hours = 150 servings =1 keg of beer or cider
Determine quantity necessary to accommodate number of servings
Servings for Tier 1 and Tier 2 events are calculated when registering your event online and will be shown on the confirmation email
Tier 3 event servings are calculated with the GLOS staff member at the event meeting prior to the event
Alcohol should not be purchased until approval is granted 
1 x 12 oz CAN = 1 SERVING
1 x KEG = 150 SERVINGS
1 x 750 ml (25oz) BOTTLE = 5 SERVINGS
1 x 1500 ml (50oz) BOTTLE =10 SERVINGS
1 x 3 LITER (100oz) BOX = 20 SERVINGS
1 x 5 LITER (169oz) BOX = 33 SERVINGS
1 x 750 ml (25 oz) BOTTLE = "FIFTH" = 25 SERVINGS
1 x 1,000 ml (33.8 oz) BOTTLE = LITER = 33 SERVINGS
1 x 1,750 ml (60 oz) BOTTLE = "HANDLE" = 60 SERVINGS
