SWMBO and I booked the venue where we will be getting married next summer. Part of the deal is we provide the alcohol which will be served. While the drink menu will focus primarily on wine, I would like to put together a beer selection of 2-4 different beers. I would like to avoid BMC, however, it should be known that a good chunk of the guests (who will be drinking beer) are BMC drinkers. So if I decide not to bother including BMC, I need a substitute which will satisfy the less refined palate. All suggestions welcome

I say buy the BMC for them and get yourself and anyone else who wants it your favorites. Your going to go through a lot of trouble trying to find beers you think they will love and will get annoyed to see 1000 bottles with one drink out of them. I'm getting giddy just thinking of the secret stash of great beers for you and a few special others.

I have four tappers in the garage. One is Miller High Life, for my guests who wouldn't appreciate the good stuff, why waste it.

Just get a keg of Bud Light. Grab an American hefe for those BMC drinkers who "think" they're refined. Then put two of your absolute favorites on tap.

no taps, its gotta be all bottles unfortunately.

So assuming I include Bud light on the list. What good beers should I include?

While a good chunk of the beer drinkers are BMC people, there is still a group of beer snobs I would like to appeal too (myself included).

im thinking maybe

1.) IPA
2.) wit
3.) trogs doppelbock or three philosophers

I like the way you think, I prefer wits to hefes, but i guess this is just a good excuse to do some "tasting"

If you don't want to provide BMCs, don't. Its your wedding and a time for you to be happy. Sure, you do want your guests to feel uncomfortable. But if not providing Bud light is really going to dampen their experience at such a joyous occasion, than you shouldn't care what they think in the first place.

As far as the selection goes, you can't go wrong with pale ales and wheat beers. BMC drinkers don't seem to mind the transition in my experience.
