    Are there any other beer options? Those are all pretty terrible.

    Personally, I would probably only drink the local selection. I LOVE beer and love craft beer so… call a spade a spade im a beer, wine, food snob aka foodie haha. 

    If that wasnt an option I would choose the import (Yuengling) and then the Corona.

    Bud, Coors, and Miller are all identical beer water (IMHO) but they are popular names that many people will choose.

    I agree about keeping the local beer! And then I’d choose a combo of light and less-light for the other three. You know what specific brands your guests will like better than us! I also disagree about the beers being “terrible.” They’re fine. Whoever complains about the free beer is lame. 

    As for a cocktail, I love the martini idea! Definitely go for something fruity and light.

    crackktheskyy:  Hmm.. Personally I think if anyone would pick Corona over a bud or coors, theyd pick stella or the local or the yeungling anyways so I think one of the “big 3” would be agood choice instead of Corona to cover all guests preferences ๐Ÿ™‚

    For a signature drink you can try a blushing bride (the actually Blushing Bride has different ingredients) but i  liked the name so I took the name and made my own version with tequila and white cranberry peach ocean spray. I like sweet drinks though so you might not want to go that route

    crackktheskyy:  Sorry, I thought there might have been another tier you could move up to. My husband and I are really picky about beer (our guests too) so we hand picked craft beers for our wedding. If you can’t do that, then stick with the pale and whatever else is cheapest since they all taste pretty much the same.

    crackktheskyy:  Hahahaha nice meme choice.

    Naw, Dont stress about a second sig cocktail. You offer that one, and champagne, and beer, and wine, and a bar.. PS My invite is in the mail, right?? haha

    If people dont like the sig drink you choose they can just order what they like. ๐Ÿ™‚

    crackktheskyy:  I agree that these beer choices are pretty bad. Our venue’s standard beer package is also pretty terrible, so we asked if we could make any substitutions. They said that if we were willing to pay by the case (they buy it, we pay for it), we can do whatever we want. If I were you, I’d ask! People who really like beer (like my FI) would be pretty disappointed with whatever selection you choose of those listed. Obviously, beer mattered to us (FI is a craft beer fanatic), so we’re willing to pay extra. If you’re not, I still voted.

    We haven’t totally decided on our signature cocktails (we’re having 2), but one is probably going to be either a French 75 or a Moscow Mule.

    The only worry I would have is that they are all so similar… But if your friends drink bud lite (euck) I would pick bud lite as one of the three just for them.
