Hi bees. We are providing our own wine and beer stocked bar. I need to decide on 3-4 beers to stock. They need to be available in cans (venue restriction) and something easy to get -nothing regional or crazy. Im not keen on serving cheapie beer but I need something that I can get at a major retailer. Any ideas?

Miller Lite is the only beer I will drink. I have no idea why.

Both Sierra Nevada Pale Ale and New Belgium Fat Tire can be easily obtained in cans (at least in my area), and both are great beers to serve at parties.

We did Bud Light, Budy Heavy, Sam Adams (I think it was a seasonal one?), and a local beer.
The Sam Adams and local beer were most popular.

Personally I’m a fan of porters and stouts. I can’t think of one in a can off the top of my head, but if you can find one that’s what I would recommend.
ETA: I found one

@krex: I like trying beers made locally! I’m sure NY has great options!

I would do something like Bud light/miller light, a wheat beer, and then a 3rd one of your choice. Something popular like coronoa, yuengling, sam adams, etc. If you have a really popular local beer I would do that definitely.
I could only have 2, so I had Bud Light and a local wheat beer (Boulevard). I either had to choose the wheat or their IPA and wheat beers are more popular. Not everyone likes IPAs, but most people who will drink beer will drink wheat beer.

Since it needs to be cans, that makes it a little harder. (I think people read over that part btw)
Corona now comes in cans and is really the only “light” beer that I like. FI prefers Miller Lite over others. Budweiser is a good “heavier” beer. Sam Adams (original) now comes in cans and that’s a good option for people who like full flavored beers. If your guests are really into beer, Guiness is available in cans, although a lot of people don’t like it (mainly because they’re too chicken to try it lol)
