red860126:  beer is beer I wouldn’t worried about how it’s served. just pick two that are pretty popular among your group. We picked a regular beer and a light beer for our choices.

red860126:  You are providing beverages to your guests. It would be incredibly ridiculous if someone thought that you were not a good host. If anyone has a problem, then they are the problem (a rather rude one at that) and not you. I wouldn’t fret about it!

Draught always trumps bottled beer. I would be a very happy guest 

ETA: I normally prefer a draught of a less prefered beer to a bottle of my favorite beer

Draught beer tops bottled beer any day! So I’d be far happier with that option.

Echoing others, draft is better tasting!

We had two kegs of beer for our reception. We did one common light beer and one local microbrew, everyone seemed very happy with our selections.

Most of the weddings I’ve been too, it’s been a free keg until it runs dry. Most people are fine with us, and switch over to bottled or other drinks when it’s done (if that is what they wanted). I usually prefer bottle, but if it’s free – no complaints!

We plan on having a keg at our reception, and will probably just get something that we know that FI’s side will drink, as it will be most of them.

red860126:  My reception hall had bottles,  but all bottles had to be poured into a cup. So it waa similar.  Honestly,  no one said anything and I was happy for the rule. It made it appear much more classy, especially in photos.


Seriously though,  no one, not even my miller lite loving brother in law, had any complaints about it. The closest complaint we had was that because people were drinking so much, they had to change the keg sooner than expected and it wasn’t ice cold yet.  It wasn’t warm, just not as cold as it would have been.

I went to a wedding last weekend that only had bottled beer and I really wish they would have had draft. I think it tastes much better and I always would choose draft over bottled/canned.

I wouldn’t care if it was draught or bottled beer.  Beer is beer — and draught is usually better, anyway!

red860126:  We had kegs at our wedding rather than bottled beer and it was fine.  Less mess to deal with since there aren’t bottles everywhere.  Depending on what they offer, more than 2 kinds might be good though, if you have a lot of beer drinkers.
