Great article on how to create a balanced tap list: https://www.beermenus.com/blog/166-h...nced-beer-list

Its geared more for a taproom or beer bar, but could be useful for planning the menu at a wedding

I'm thinking bring 2 kegs of the same high quality light beer, and do something slightly more adventerous in the other two. A dry stout may be ubiquitous enough that people may recognize it as being like a Guiness. The other could be a mildly hopped pale ale, or perhaps a Belgian Single. Basically make a pilsner but pitch 3522 Ardennes yeast. Makes a great subtly complex light ale.

An Irish Red. Most people know Killians, so it's familiar. It's also low ABV, which is good for a big party.

Have you done cider before? It can be tough to get just right. We do it in the summer with fruit juice to backsweeten. It's about 4.5-5%.

I'm amazed how many people like saison or Belgians. Not crazy funk, but a casual patersbier. It goes with food.

Milds I've found to be a big hit. Dark enough to not be boring but not too roasty or bitter. They're also fast, cheap and easy. The biggest thing holding tem back is the name and the association with old men. Shame. Very tasty beers.

Oh one more: SMaSH with pilsner malt, minimal hops and wit yeast. No orange peel or coriander. Call it "Blue Moon Lite." Goes over really well with BMC people, tastes decent and goes down really easy.
