We want to do our own bar and are thinking about getting a couple of kegs from total wine to have behind the bar (our caterer is providing bartenders) but we aren’t big on beer so we aren’t sure what to pick.
The kegs available are:
Yuengling Traditional Lager
Killian’s Irish Red

We did a mix of Bud, Bud Light, and Miller Lite. The Bud and Miller Lite were hardly touched. Sorry! I don’t know about the other two 🙂

@kate169: As far as inexpensive beers go, I definitely prefer Yuengling over Bud or Miller, but I haven’t had Killian’s since college so I can’t really comment on that.

I picked Killians because it is my FAV beer ever. However, for a large amount of people I would do something like Bud and Bud light because it covers your average grooms. We are doing the same thing for our wedding and decided to do one light beer and one smaller keg of a local fav.

I didn’t vote- I do know that beer drinkers prefer to have an option between a light beer and a regular one. I do know that the lighter one is usually more in demand.

I really dislike Bud beers, I would go with Miller lite and the lager.

Do they have quarter kegs available for the imports. If they do, stick with the Budlight and one imports. BL is by far the most popular and most other drinkers will deal with it as it is very common at events to only have BL. You can also buy mini kegs (12 glasses) at your local grocery stores of some of the imports, but you may have to have the store special order. Some of the special kegs are distributed through the liquor distributors so you can ask to look at the local order book.

Personally, I would go with the Yuengling and the Killians, but I am admittedly a total beer snob. I know I always appreciate events where the beer selection has more to offer than the typical domestics.
You could always go with either Yuengling or Killians plus Budweiser. That way, you’ve got a higher endchoice and a domestic, but no lites, which most people I know don’t like to drink at something like a wedding.
Good luck on your decision!

A lot of people I know like Bud Light (well it seems that way…) so I might get that and the Yuengling. I hate not knowing what to pick but I guess this is better than a cash bar. lol

I think in order to satisfy everyone you should do the bud light for the generic beer drinkers and then either the lager or the irish red for the more unique drinkers 🙂

@tksjewelry: I don’t think any of them are imports (but not sure about Killians, it’s made by Coors). Yuengling is from Pennsylvania and is the oldest brewery in the US.

Sorry for the confusion, that is just the terms we use around the bars here to determine prices. I prob should have said premiums. But they might come in quarter or third size kegs, usually depends on the laws of the state which sizes are allowed to be sold where.

@kate169: I voted for Killians. But then I saw –
Yuengling Traditional Lager
Is there also a beer called Yanglinger or something? We had it in Georgia last year and LOVED it. They do not sell it in the midwest (sadly).
To add, I admit – I am also a beer snob. I always want/order the higher end beers or more uncommon.

I am also a beer snob, and the Killian’s is the only one I would drink off that list. I normally drink more local beer, but if I drink more commercial beer it would be Leinenkugel’s, Red Stripe or Blue Moon.
