If you are doing different choices I would add a dark like Guiness. I personaly only drink (when I can) Yuengling, Killian’s, or Guiness. Although I love a true black and tan. Yum.

@MissGreen: I think that’s why everyone around me loves it. About two years ago it became available in GA and everyone went crazy. I thnk it’s ok, but nothing to cry about 🙂

Yea it’s not sold in Illinois either. Would you be able to do a mass email to the few that are drinkers to see what they prefer since there isn’t a huge number? FWIW Bud Light, Miller Light and Budweiser are the 3 main beers I see most at weddings in our circle. Michelob Ultra is gaining popularity.

I’m not a beer drinker at all, but in my circle of family and friends, Corona is the most popular.

Eh to each their own I guess. We are excited for it to be here in October and I think it’s worth it. My NC and Tennessee friends always bring us cases when they visit. Not everyone has a taste for lagers.

We’re buying cases as well and keeping it to bud light, miller light, o’douls and something else probably bud heavy.

8 options may prove to be a little less cost effective because you can usually return unopened cases to the liquor store when you buy in bulk… if you have too much variety you may end up with too many mostly full cases at the end of the night that you can’t return

Sam Adams is our go-to crowd pleaser. The Summer Ale would work well for a BBQ. What about doing all local brews? I think it’s awesome to support small businesses. We’re offering beer pairings with our dinner, and we are definitely making sure to work in some good local stuff in addition to Mr. LK’s beloved Guiness, Chimay, and Delerium (all imports).

@lovekiss: How can you not love a fresh Guiness? Ok I am biased here since I like so few beers.

There are also halfeweissens. I know I am not spelling that right. They can be cheap imports.

Sam Adams has universal appeal here in Boston, even for the hop-drinkers like my Fiance.  Personally, I love Sam Summer for your time frame, in which case you’d want to pair it maybe with something like an IPA or a darker beer.

As an unabashed beer snob, I can’t help noticing that a lot of people are recommending multiple lagers from various macrobreweries (bud/miller/heinekin, etc). Honestly, that stuff all tastes the same. Sure, people may have preferences between them, but anyone who drinks bud light by choice will be ok with miller lite, amstel, heinekin, etc. If you’re actually concerned about providing variety, I think you should pick a couple of lagers, a pale ale, and something a little darker/more robust, like an ipa/brown ale/stout. Oktoberfest beers should be available by the time of your wedding and could be a good seasonal option (yes, they’re technically lagers, too, but they’re stylistically quite distinct). Keeping costs and availability in mind, I would pick whatever two macro lagers your crowd tends to favor, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, and Sam Adams Octoberfest.
