We plan on serving beer and wine along with 2 signature drinks. I am really not too sure that we have many wine drinkers attending but I would still kind of like to provide one red and white wine. Any suggestions on what types to serve? And an even bigger question is how many? Also, we plan on getting a keg of beer.. what do you think the most popular beer is? And is there any rule of thumb about number of signature drinks we should expect to make? We’re doing Captain and coke and an adult cherry limeade. Not sure how much to purchase though :/ We have 90 guests and I think around 60 that actually drink.

I’d recommend cabernet for the red and maybe pinot grigio for the white. Avoid merlot. Some people love it and everyone else tends to hate it with a passion. Cabernet is a crowd pleaser. As for beer, I’d probably have an American light lager (like Bud Light), an import lager (like Heineken), a darker option (a stout, red, porter, or amber), and maybe a wheat beer (like Blue Moon).
As for how much: http://www.realsimple.com/holidays-entertaining/weddings/wedding-wine-liquor-calculator-00000000008314/index.html
They are assuming for you that some poeple will not drink at all and some will drink only wine or beer. I’d just go with their numbers for wine/beer/champagne and assume that your signatures replace the champagne.
ETA: jsut saw the keg thing… depends on your crowd. With my friends, Heineken would probably be best.
