If you’re having liquor and wine too, I think two draft beer choices are fine.  I’m sure your guests can find something they like, especially with the full top-shelf liquor bar!  Now if it was a beer/wine only reception, then I’d say you’d need more choices on the beer.

2 types of beer is just fine!  That’s all we had (in addition to liquor and wine)  Just make sure you have at least one lighter beer (Bud, Miller, Coors, etc.).

@cre2013:  Definitely not, we’re only offering 1 type of draft beer.

what kind of beer is it? I prefer draft to bottle, especially at a wedding.  I’m not a fan of looking at people dressed up carrying around a bottle of beer.

I prefer draft, but we sadly served bottles because it was cheaper for our diy bar 🙁 I’d say choose a craft beer that appeals to a wide audience (like a local amber) & a light domestic & you’ll be fine.

I don’t think it matters much, especially since most venues will pour a bottled beer into a glass anyway. I usually prefer the taste of draft over bottle.

@cre2013:  

I think those choices are great, yeungling was the most popular beer at my wedding!

I like draft beer better.  I would just avoid picking two of the same thing (i.e. both bud light and miller light) and you should be fine.  It would be nice to have one of those and a better option.

@MrsWBS:  Exactly this!

Especially if you’re serving the beer in glasses and not plastic, draft beer is a lot better than bottled beer.  If your FI is okay with Miller Light and Yuengling, then that’s okay but maybe replace one with a microbrew if you have the option.

We had two local microbrews at our wedding, and nobody cares that tehy didn’t get to choose their favorite beer – the two that we had on draught were really appealing to beer drinkers.

Actually most beer drinkers prefer draft to bottles. I consider myself a beer snob and I get very excited when I can have a beer from tap. Yeungling and Miller light are ok, but I would ask them what your other options are.
