Open Bar Cost?

Hi there!  I'm looking to get an estimate as to what our open bar will cost.  The wedding is at Salem Cross Inn and it's for 150 people (well, that's the "minimum" number of plates we have to pay for - likely we'll have 140 people show).  Bar is based on consumption.  Prices are as follows:

Mixed Drinks $6.00 to $8.50

Wine $6.00 to $8.00

Beer $4.00 to $7.00

These might go up slightly by the time we get married (it's in the contract for very minor price adjustments).  So for 140 people, some of which are *very heavy drinkers, while some are light drinkers, how much do you think we'll pay?  They estimated $30 per person but idk if that's $30pp plus tax and tip?  Then we're looking at almost $40 pp.  Ahh, I'm excited/nervous to hear what you guys think!  

Originally we were going to do just beer and wine but with the liquor prices where they are, maybe we'll do $6 signature cocktails to keep it a bit lower!

Thank you!!
