Ok so I can't officially sell my own beers in the pub but I can give people the choice of something different
I currently have on tap Guinness, carling, Heineken, smithwicks, Budweiser and blue moon. I know I know, the evil ones, but I'm getting brew dogs punk IPA on draft. The distributor have a serious bottle range. What to stock to give a good choice is where I'm stuck, don't say all
Here is a link to them , showing there bottle range http://www.fourcorners.ie/#url click on th "Beers" tab
Any suggestions would be welcome

Sink the Bismark is pretty strong in the extreme. One per customer is right! I didn't add the Brooklyn Chocolate Stout,since guiness will probably outdo it most days over there. You never know though...

I like the Halve Maan beers, all of them would be good options if you want to have a supply of Belgians.

Nothing will compete with Guinness but I intend to give them choices and try to get some of them to occasionally drink a craft

The only bottles I ever see people buy in a bar/restaurant are big beers. IMO stick with IIPAs, strong Belgians, and RIS. I've actually never tried any beer on that list, so I wouldn't know which are good.

Take with a grain of salt, as I have never owned a bar, and do not have actual sales eperience with bottles in a setting such as this.

You're right about bottles but my plan is to see what interest there is in different beers then get 1-2 on popular ones on tap

Gotcha. I like bars and restaurants that have a beer snob tap or two they rotate good beers on.
