The size of the pitcher affects how many ounces there are in a typical pitcher of beer. Beer pitchers with capacities of 32, 48, or 60 ounces are available from restaurant suppliers; most taverns and restaurants use 48- or 60-ounce pitchers.
The typical beer cup sold in taverns and restaurants holds 12 ounces. As a result, a 32-ounce pitcher contains around 2 1/3 regular cups of beer. A 48-ounce pitcher and a 60-ounce pitcher each hold roughly 4 cups and 5 cups of beer, respectively. Beer from a pitcher makes it simple to underestimate how much alcohol is consumed, so caution is advised when doing so.
