i am all for insulated travel mugs. Bubba's and the likes...in fact I have a couple small Bubbas that I use regularly. But here lies the problem.
Some feel that bringing a 52 ounce Bubba is a requirement for a great vacation. So...for others what does this do?
Firstly, to fill one of these oversized containers takes a few minutes...it totally ties up the beer dispenser, thus causing other guests to wait while Buuba gets filled to the lidline. It means that the bar you are recieveing from is far more likely to run out of beer until another keg is attached.
Today I observed a group of 4 Bubba Boys and Girls having a good heehaw at the fact that they were getting so much beer....while others waited patiently.
30 minutes later, I watched as the same people poured 75% of what was in thier kegs....onto the sand...and then proceeded back to the bar to repeat the cycle....BTW...this was not at the resort I work at, but one I was visiting.
Not only is this a major inconvenience for guests who are waiting for a drink...it is also a major cost on those resorts doing thier best to keep costs in line.
I can soon see the day where there will be policies in effect about the size of personal mug that will be refilled.
Please...those of you who feel it nessesary to carry 52 ounces of beer with you....unless you plan on drinking all of it...leave the monster kegs at home and be a good tourist!
Cheers from the beach
