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.
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.
