Beer alternatives?

Our venue only allows beer and wine, which we're both fine with and most of our guests will enjoy. We have a few friends who don't like beer but do enjoy hard ciders. We were planning on getting a few types of beer anyway. Is it worth making one of them a hard cider? We've also got some friends and family who usually drink beer, but may choose cider if it's available as it tends to be less "heavy" than beer. I just want to be sure we're hosting everyone properly and giving them a choice of beverages they'd enjoy.

    I find cider delicious and any gluten-free folks will be appreciative.  Even my non-gluten-free friends like cider.  I also have family who don't like beer or wine, but happily drink cider.  I personally think it's worth it.

    I totally forgot it's also gluten free...that adds even more people who would drink it. Thanks for that!

  • Given that so many places that have beer these days also include at least one cider, I think it's a good idea.

  • Absolutely. Cider is delicious and is popular with both beer lovers and people who don't drink beer. I think your guests will appreciate having this option.

  • Cider is a great option
  • I think it's nice to offer a cider beer, as long as you're also offering a light beer + a craft brew (like an IPA).

    Those were going to be my exact options, thanks for confirming they're good ideas! I LOVE a good IPA, but I know they're kind of polarizing. I thought IPA, light beer, cider & some sort of lager or pilsner would probably cover all of the bases. Thanks!

    I think cider is a very appropriate option - especially if it's gluten-free.
