# How many beers are in a pitcher?

Since a standard pint glass holds 16 fluid ounces of beer, a standard beer pitcher would yield between three to four pint glasses of beer. If a glass is simply 12 fluid ounces, a standard beer pitcher could yield as many as five glasses of beer. It is recommended that one knows both the fluid ounces of the pitcher as well as the glass size in ounces when determining how many beers are in a pitcher.
