@canelacaliente  I attempted the keg party gathering with the passion fruit keg. I tapped it, but the only time my guests paid any attention to it was to fill up some cups for me. Putting them in a group via action did not offer me any options to get them to drink. Everyone was eating food out of my refrigerator and chatting. Everyone ignored the keg as well as my requests to do a keg stand. This is a legitimate bug with no work around that I can think of.

@PriestessAvenara I was able to do a keg stand but I had to queue it 3 to 4 times to get it done.

@canelacaliente  That's strange, I didn't have it on multiple queues, but I'd ask, nothing would happen, ask, nothing would happen, ask, nothing would happen, etc. Everyone was much more interested in eating my Lobster Thermadors and chatting. I couldn't even get them to stop walking back to the table or stop talking. If someone invited me to a KEG party, I'd have the sense to at least drink one cup of it. The only people who aren't obligated are people who don't drink and express that before they come. Most hosts don't care, especially if you are on medication that mixes badly with alcohol, but this is SIMS. No one is medicated unless you count being possessed in Strangerville and there is no trait that would prevent someone from being willing to drink. I did notice when I offered to make one of my friends a drink at my bar before our friendship went down and I didn't make it, but that's why I tested with a full house of friends. SOMEONE should have drank with me. I KNOW one of them does because I make him drinks at my bar all the time and he loves it. He was the one I was purposely targeting asking to do the keg stand, because I figured he'd be the most likely to be willing to participate in things to do with it. What? Are only my level 10 mixed bar drinks good enough for you? Darn it! You are a healthy young adult who agreed to come to a keg party in the first place. Help a girl out. *laughs*

Happend to me too. Guests didn't drink anything from the keg at two different parties.

I also have to que up keg stands multiple times for it to succeed, the sims often walk across the lot to first ask to do the keg stand, then walk all the way back to actually do the keg stand, but most times don't end up doing it. Guests also ignore the keg.

Me too. It would make sense if we had a “call to drinks” after filling the cups.

I just had this happen on PS5 as of the February 2021 patch. The keg was also the passion fruit keg, and I had to have my host sim empty the keg by filling cups from it repeatedly because the guests just ignored it and got food out of the fridge instead.

The last keg party I threw ended up being all about cooking. All 15 sims crammed into the kitchen and cooked one meal after the next from the moment the party started to the moment it ended. (There were leftovers in the fridge, but they didn't bother with those, it was all about cooking as many meals as possible while never actually eating any of them.) No one touched the keg OR the buffet table. 

I put a keg out at a kava party, though, just to see what would happen, and the guests were all about the keg at the kava party. No one touched the kava, of course, but the keg got emptied in no time! 

So...keg parties are for cooking, it seems, and not about kegs at all. If you want sims to drink from the keg, try throwing a kava party instead. That worked in my game. 

Seems like the party types and their associated activities are a bit jumbled. 

I'm thinking about having a toddler play date next. Who knows? Maybe it'll end up being the best mountain climbing excursion ever! Wink 

In all seriousness, though...if keg parties ever get fixed, can we please have the ability to throw them at parks? My sims got married in a park and I'd hoped to be able to throw a kegger as an after party kind of thing (especially since there was no kitchen at the park to turn the keg party into a cooking party)...but there's no option to have a keg party at a park. The only option  was the kava party, which is why I ended up throwing one. Ironically, sims actually USED the keg at the kava party....so....I guess that works? :/
