Dimensions of a case of beer?

I am getting ready for a maiden voyage to Hilton Head and am getting all of our beverages from a distributor. I am trying to figure out the dimensions of the case to see how much of the bed about 25 cases would take up. I am at work and do not readily have available a case of beer here. Anybody???

I don't know about the dimensions but I just weighed a can of beer (we have them in a fridge here at work) and it was 13.5 oz on our postage scale. That would then total 8,100 oz for 25 cases of beer which translates to 506.25 lbs. Well within the GVWR for the Titan. And yes, I do have more important things to do at work right now but it all took only about 2 minutes. What can I say, I'm a scientist and once I read this post I started wondering how much that would weigh and I knew it would bug me all day until I crunched some quick numbers.

Now we know why you really bought a truck! 25 cases is a serious thirst!

By the way would you be needing a list of rest stops and roadside bushes to help you with your trip. Lets see now ... about 2-3 reststops per 6-pak times 4 6paks per case equals ... you aint never gonna get there dude and you won't remember it anyway. Save the gas and get drunk at home. :>)

Leave room in the bed for that case of tylenol you'll be needing tor the drive/hangover coming back.

Joking aside enjoy and be safe.

There are 10 of us heading down on Friday night and NO drinking until we get there, even the people riding. Trust me, we have all been looking forward to this for a long time. We are thinking that we'll need about 5-7 more cases after we get down there. I am getting a cooler that hold 100+ cans and has wheels. There will be 100+ cans iced down for a nice 11 hour drive down and when we get there that'll be a whole different story.

Now the question that comes to my mind is, why do you have beer in the fridge at work? The second question that comes to mind is if the "more important things" involve drinking said beer?

Just to drive you crazy, did you weigh the can empty all in the name of science of course, just to see what the weight is to bring them back for recycling.

You already have a cooler with wheels. It's called a Titan. Just throw a couple hundred pounds of ice in the bed on top of the 25 or so cases and your still well within your GVR.
I see yours is also an offroad so that makes it a beach cooler doesn't it?

In all honesty, I have debated it and it would also double as the watering hole for the wet t-shirt contest!

Hey TriKKy, even in your own back yard...
We have beer in the fridge where I work. Nobody drinks during the day, but come 5:00 when you know you have several hours more work to do, it sure seems to make the evening a bit less painful...


I'm sick and tired of all the problems...

Our small engineering firm actually keeps a fully stocked kitchen as a benefit to the employees, but the beer was bought with personal funds. Every other Friday at 5pm a few of us kick back and shoot the breeze in the office. There just happened to be a few cans left over from the last time we did this. I might just weigh said beer can empty this Friday...in the name of science of course, actually, might have to weigh a few full and empty cans to insure precision in the measurements. BTW-We drink responsibly.

you're completely missing out on the point of the titan's utility trac system. go with kegs instead of cases. then use the cleats to tie the kegs into place. also, you can put the kegs in trashcans of ice and keep them cool that way.
