I think if the brunch is hearty enough the beer can work.  Omelets, I probably wouldn’t a beer with.  But hash browns, ham, and plenty of other things like that I probably would.  But then again I’m a big beer fan, especially microbrews, so it might depend on your guest list. 

Edit: Fiance says he would love a spicy omelet with a microbrew beer . . .and is now requesting it for breakfast tomorrow.

Sure mimosas would be ideal, but I dont think its necessary for a noon lunch. But I would steer your menu more towards the savory brunch items rather than the sweet and traditional breakfast/brunch items. 

Like anti-pasto, tomato and cheese stratas, a roast, cold and hot salads, smoked salmon, eggs benedict, crab cakes, etc. as opposed to pastries, omelets, bagels, french toast etc.

What are your options for food?

Can you get a sparkling wine to mix with orange juice? or not?

Moscato d’Asti  works well with brunch menu items.

Chardonnay works well with bacon.

Merlot if you have something heavy like steak and eggs.

White Riojas are great with ham.

Crisp, unoaked whites such as Muscadet, Pinot Grigio or most Sauvignon Blancs will also work.

I think it’s fine. I would have a glass of white with brunch in the right situation. I would also have beer if there was pasta or something which most people serve at brunch.

I’d definintly have a champagne with brunch. It’d be lovely with some fruits, melon balls and strawberries etc would be very refreshing after a savoury meal. Maybe mini quiche, crepes, alcoholic and non alcoholic punch would all look nice, also maybe some bellinis?
