Open Bar

Ordering beer is generally a safe bet for any open-bar experience because you know exactly what you’re going to get. In terms of taste profile, alcohol percentage, and consistency, you’ll get exactly what that all-too-familiar label has delivered to you in the past. But the downfall is that most selections are pretty tame, sticking to big-branded, recognizable choices.

Another such factor is cost. A cash bar is the least expensive option for a host. However, there are alternatives between a cash bar and a fully open bar that can limit costs. The host can set a hard limit on cost, beyond which all beverages have to be paid for by attendees.
