@UpstateCait:2 varieties of beer is plenty IMO, especially if you’re offering wine and soft drinks too. A good standby that most people enjoy is Miller or Bud Light. I personally don’t like it, but I plan on serving it to my guests as well. We’re planning on a keg of that and a keg of probably Summit Pale Ale.

We only had  2 kinds of beer at our wedding and it was fine! We chose Shiner Bock (a Texas beer) and Miller Lite because my whole family drinks it and so does my DH’s. I wouldn’t worry about not having enough selections! 

I would do a quick poll of your family members to get a feeling of what they would like to drink if they had to choose a lighter domestic beer.

I would just make sure the second beer you offer is a lighter beer. Can you do a Miller Lite and Bud Lite? I’m not sure which beers are considered domestic, sorry. I personally love Blue Moon and Sam so I’d be happy.

Since you are also having wine I don’t think it’s bad at all. Just think if you went to a party at someone had two kinds of beer, a couple wines, and non alcoholoc drinks you would not think it was terrible for a second.

I love Blue Moon..it seems like a really flavorful beer too though. I would suggest Bud Light..I think we are going to do Yuengling and Budlight..but that isn’t set in stone yet.

I loove Blue Moon, but I think I would offer another kind of beer that would be more universally appealing to your guests.  In contrast to the heavy Sam Adams, I would offer some kind of light beer. Maybe Coors/Bud Light?  It might be good to offer a beer for those who drink light exclusively.

I was going to suggest Sam Adams, but you had me beat! I think Blue Moon is a good choice. We had Brooklyn Lager at our wedding and there was very little of it left by the end of the night.

I love Blue Moon but not everyone does. Since you’re already having Octoberfest, I’d probably just go with Bud Light or something like that. 

@AbbyDabbyDoodleBug: I LOVE Shiner Bock, it’s my favorite kind of beer!

@UpstateCait:A domestic beer I LOVE is Lienenkugel sunset wheat.  I am not much of a beer drinker, this is the only beer I can sip on. It is light on the stomach and I swear it tastes a little like fruity pebbles.lol. I would suggest it for any guests that don’t usually like to drink beer.

OUr group of invitees are hard core beer drinkers.  We are thinking of only having Michelob Golden Light or Coors Light.

I’m going to agree with the others. While I love Blue Moon, I think something lighter would be better. I’d go with Miller Lite or Bud Lite.

@Anniebo: Yum! I love Lienenkugel! It tastes like Fruity Pebbles to me too!

I’m going to have to agree with Miller Lite or Bud Lite, and I think two kinds of beer is fine. And the Sam is perfect!

Man, I find it hard to wrap my head around the idea that people actually *enjoy* drinking Bud or Miller Lite!  But apparently it’s a popular choice. You know your guests better than we do, so judge accordingly.
