    I am a happy camper with Stella or Yuengling! Great choices.

    I like your selections, and agree with you about Bud Light!  I think it’s terrible, but FI’s family likes it.  Yuck.  I’m a Guiness and Corona girl myself (talk about spectrum of likes…) but I think you have a good selection.

    Is there any local microbrews that aren’t too expensive. I know Yuengling is a pretty regional one, I would try to add another and then drop one of the Bud beers-I think one of those is more than enough:).

    @Ms. 3D RC Flyer:  well, even ” redneck” beer gets the job done 🙂 

    Personally, I like your selections because they cover a large spectrum of what a beer drinker would like. If Blue Moon is an option for you, that’s a really popular one that is not too terribly expensive. I also like Michelob Ultra ( Darling Husband says it tastes like carbonated water), but a lot if people drink it, and it is just as easy to come by as Bud Light ( and possibly returnable to Sams Club)

    I haven’t tasted Two Buck Chuck recently, but this review recommends the Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Grigio, and White Zinfandel in the red, white, and pink categories, respectively.  There are also some cute suggestions for wine-based cocktails.

    For beer, I would keep the Bud Light if your ILs like it and drop the regular Bud.

    You know your guests best, but I say drop the Bud and add in something else, maybe another light beer?  I’d also go with 2 whites and 2 reds instead of the white zin since I don’t know anyone except my grandmother who drinks it.

    I know some people are really picky about the bud light/miller light thing(my family is crazy like that)… so maybe change the plain bud out with the miller light. Also I agree with a pp that something like blue moon would be nice. 

    I also agree with the pp and say 2 reds and 2 whites and drop the pink. I would add a chardonnay and a merlot or cab sav

    @Ms. 3D RC Flyer:  PS. Thank you for doing a beer and wine only reception and not a cash bar. I know its not my business but I wish more people were this sensible!

    I think the beer choices are fine, and the wine choices are pretty good though I would reccommend swapping the pinot noir for a cabernet. I feel like cabs are fairly well liked for both sweeter and drier red wine drinkers.

    As a dark beer gal, I personally would love to see a dark beer featured (could be as simple as changing the Yuengling to Yuengling Porter). Or if you have any local microbreweries around you, featuring a local beer could be a nice touch for out-of-town guests. But I’m also laid-back about such matters and would be a happy camper whatever way-after all, I go to weddings for the bride and groom, not for the beer!

    I’m not much of a White Zinfandel person. I would chose:

    Chardonnay, Merlot, Pinot Grigio

    Pinot Noir wasn’t in your original list of choices, but if it is an option, definatley this one too!!!!!!

    I have to agree with others that are saying to nix the white zin. Blech. I would go with two reds, two whites (for reds – I highly recommend skipping Merlot and going with a Pinot and a Cabernet).

    Yuengling- lager

    Heineken- light lager

    Bud Light- lager

    Budweiser- lager

    Stella Artois- barf lager

    I would add in a wheat and a pale ale and take out the Bud and Stella.  I can’t help you on the pale ales since I think they’re gross, but Blue Moon or Shocktop are pretty standard choices for wheat, and there are a lot of craft wheat beers in Virginia that would be great too.  I would not do a heavy beer, like a stout, since its more polarizing.
