Buying Beer for a restaurants kitchen

burgeoningfoodie Nov 19, 2012 08:01 AM

Has anyone done this and if so, how did you go about it (i.e. did you call and ask what they like or did you buy it off the menu)?

    just a word of warning from this attorney..................

    If the restaurant has a liqour/beer license in many jurisdictions you cannot bring in or send in alcohol to the establishment, so you will have to buy it from the restaurant to gift to the kitchen staff.

      Good to know. I'd ask why but I guess it doesn't matter.

        I disbelieve this.

        I was recently in a restaurant (and now I can't remember which one) that actually had an item on the menu thats said "6 pack of PBR tallboys for the kitchen staff". I have never seen that before, but thought it was very cool.

          i've been somewhere that did this too! i recall a few options including a high end chapagne (which i assume was a joke more than anything else) but i am drawing a blank as to where i saw it.
