Cheapest place to order cases of 40s

I wanna get three cases of 40 oz malt liquor. Which stores will give me a bulk discount for this kind of quality? The lowest price I have been quoted so far is $1.99 per bottle.

I'm looking for one case each of Olde English, Olde English High Gravity, Mickey's.

North or Central Austin locations preferred.

      1. Have you tried some of the places near campus like the Party Barn? You've been going to the wrong places if they're charging that much for 40s. Best bet would be go to Riverside and just hit the Qwik-E Marts down there. There is a Centennial Liquor way up Lamar next to the Yellow Rose that might be able to get you cases of 40s.

        I imagine that most liquor stores don't offer cases of malt liquor, heck most liquor stores don't even carry 40s.

          Where are you finding 40s for less than $1.99? Most places are charging $2.19 and up.

          I ended up getting them from some East Cesar Chavez shop. They had them for $1.99 but wouldn't give any additional discount for quantity.

          I'm really spending too much energy on this. I only buy cases twice a year and don't drink 40s otherwise.

        2. try Junior's near campus on 29th. they mostly have kegs, but who knows, ask them. maybe they will special order it for you and give you a case discount, too. especially if you pay in cash. they have always been real friendly and great to deal with.
