How Many Cups in a Quart, Pint or Gallon?

So you're throwing a party and you want to judge how many available drinks you should have based on the total number of people you expect to show up. Got it.

For that, you're going to want to know how many cups are in a pint or a quart. Also, maybe you want to know how many cups are in a gallon if you're making mixed drinks. Let's find out.

We're purely going to focus on liquid ingredients in the conversion charts below. We're skipping all of your favorite ice cream recipes, kitchen tips for dry ingredients and free printable takeaways because this is a site for measuring fluid ounces of craft beer, not kitchen conversions. Unless, of course, those kitchen conversions are for figuring out how to split a new craft beer eight ways amongst friends. Here's a cheat sheet for those liquid measurements: buy eight beers and don't split them into a fourth of a cup each.

Also, isn't every cup a measuring cup? We don't need to worry about measurement conversions when the beer glass in front us measures this most important amount: the amount of beer we are about to drink. Such an elegant measuring tool a pint glass is. That basic beer guy logic applies whether or not you are a Imperial Quarter Gallon Man or a metric third of a cup only drinker.
