    Cost of beer at events

    One question for you all - when a distributor pours beer at an event for you, who covers the cost of the beer?

    We generally split the cost, sort of. If I sell them a keg for 125, they will pour and bill back 25. Good deal for us. We prefer to represent our own beer and only do this when stretched thin.
    Shouldn't you be brewing beer?

    Jeez...$25 bill-back on $125 sounds like a great deal to me! I'm 50/50 with my distr.. When possible, I try to bring my own stock.
    Much more cost effective.

    And is it simply assumed that the distro pays for eveything else, including CO2, hours for workers, food, gas/miles etc.?
