# Is buying jugs of beer cheaper?

Is buying jugs of beer cheaper than individual glasses? By how much typically? Is that why people buy them over 2 or 3 schooners? In Sydney is it common practice to not sell them in night clubs?

Depends how much they charge for a schooner and a jug.
I would think by getting a jug you can sit there longer without having to go back to the bar, plus people share them.
Most pubs sell jugs.

schoonerprice=?
jugprice=?
jugsize_in_ml = 285
schoonersize_in_ml = 1136

s=“schooner”
If schoonerprice * (jugsize_in_ml / schoonersize_ml) > jugprice:
s=“jug”
print t (s+” is cheaper”)

#### Fill in the blanks, btw it’s 4 schooners to a jug afaik

Jug would be cheaper more often than not , btw my schooner size is a pot but either way it’s just maths

A Jug is 1140ml
A Pint is 570ml or 2 Pints to a Jug
A Schooner is 425ml or 2.7 Schooners to a Jug
A middy/pot is 285ml or 4 middys to a Jug.

The rest is just simple math with prices from your local watering hole.

=IF((\$schooner.price x 2.7) => \$jug.price, buy "jug", buy "schooner")

In my local, a Jug (2 pints) of Tooheys New is the same price as 1 pint.

I thought the purpose of a jug was to reduce trips to the bar.
