Alcohol

We selected a venue and caterer that will let us buy our own alcohol and are finalizing our beverage menu.  Our wedding is fairly small, around 80, but we want to have a reasonable selection.  So far, a white and red wine, a signature cocktail and selction of other cocktails.  I'm stuck on the selection for beer.  I thought we'd do a his/her favorite, Miller Lite, Blue Moon and then pick another darker beer.  Is that enough?  Ideas?

    I think a his and her favorite is a great idea and I think the two you picked are just fine. Blue Moon is a darker beer than Miller Lite and it has a more distictive taste than a lot of other kinds that will make it special. I don't really think you need to provide another kind by any means, however, if you wanted you could do a Sam Adams type or even a cider.

    However, I think your 2 wines, cocktails, and beer sounds like a great bar that I am sure you guests will appreciate.

    Out of curiosity (we too are buying our own alcohol) what wines are you getting? I know nothing of wine.

    As a dark beer drinker, I can't stand either Blue Moon or Miller Lite, so maybe provide Guinness/Killian's if you want to do a third beer option.

    Otherwise, I think your alcohol selection sounds fine.

    Ditto rknox88! (We did Rosemont Shiraz for red wine [Australia] and Babich Sauvignon Blanc [New Zeland] for white and they were both hits.)

    Blue Moon is a very light wheat beer.

    I think a pilsner (Miller lite) a wheat beer (blue moon) and something darker like a lager, porter, maybe even stout or amber ale would be nice. Guiness, Sierra Nevada, Newcastle, etc.

    I think Blue Moon may be a bad option, but everything else sounds good! We're doing three different types of wine *buying 30 bottles* A Sangria and buying about 15 different cases of beer just to have a variety. I am only going to spend 250 for beer and we're having 120 ppl.

    Blue Moon= my fav...especially with a big slice of orange.  Yum.

    If you can find it, I highly suggest Boulevard Wheat over Blue Moon.

    And I also think a darker beer would be a good addition.
    Clever girl.
