There are 12 ounces in the standard cup of beer sold at bars and restaurants. Thus, a 32-ounce pitcher holds about 2 2/3 standard cups of beer. A 48-ounce pitcher holds about 4 cups of beer, and a 60-ounce pitcher holds about 5 cups of beer. It is easy to underestimate alcohol intake when drinking beer from a pitcher, so caution is warranted when consuming alcohol in this manner.
