Dear Beer Dilemma in Vegas,

Is it your birthday or hers?

Keg up on what you like - but, stick a case of what she likes in the 'fridge for her private consumption.

That way - you will have what you want - and she will know that you cared about her needs/wants/etc. which will make the "morning after" much easier ...

While I can tell the difference between the two, I'm thinking that I might want to get something a little MORE different than just giving the Miller Lite/Coors Light option to guests. However, I think that most mainstream American brews taste similar... so giving them, say, the Coors Light/Budweiser (for example) choice is still not significantly different. Foreign beers and boutique beers often cost considerably more than the mainstream US beers AND come in a smaller keg.

Any suggestions? Maybe I should just get what I normally like and have the 'beggars can't be choosers' attitude (hey, it's still free beer, right?). OR, would you lash out and spend more? Fat Tire, for example, costs almost as much for a 5 gallon keg as mainstream American beers cost for a full (1/2 barrel) keg.

Signed,
Beer Dilemma in Vegas
I am a beer drinker, for sure.
I wouldn't get two lite beers. A lot of people don't like lite beer.
I would go with Miller Lite and Budweiser, and get your wife a case of Coors Lite...which I do like, by the way.

Tell your guests the beer is free, and if they want anything else, BYOB.

Trust me on this...I've had a LOT of parties.

Root beer. (It's fairly common knowledge here that I don't drink alcohol, thought I'd add that for my 2 cents).

Well, you do need something for the teetotalers. I supply Cokes, Sprite and iced tea, but root beer would be a good one.

One should probably get some good vanilla ice cream, too, because sooner or later, someone is going to want a Black Cow.

shucks you beat me to it, Kitchenelf.........

serve the beer you want and Mike's idea of having extra beer for your wife in the fridge is a great one......people are there to celebrate your 50th not hers and they are not going to care one way or the other....a keg, though, is a great idea and economical for a large crowd
