Beer for a wedding?

Maybe PBR, Terrapin Golden Ale and Magic Hat #9?

We're 25, so its not like we're going to drink the best beer in the world...

Beer for a wedding?

This question came up a while back, but I thought it was worth reviving for another discussion. My fiancee and I are getting married in Florida next month, and I've been given the job of picking out three beers for the reception. Its a smallish wedding (only probably 180 guests) and since we live in North Carolina, we can pick from both NC and FLA beer selections.

I'm trying to be sensitive to the heat Florida in May and the fact that we're just having a dessert reception, not dinner. Can you think of three beers that might fit the following categories?

I'm think about going for three beers in this breakdown:
one mass-produced beer folks will have heard of- PBR, Bud Light, etc.
one local beer that is worth drinking- Sweetwater 420, Terrapin Golden Ale, etc.
one beer that I pick just because it will be fun to have- I have no idea where to go here. Maybe a brown ale of some kind?

I would love to hear some other folks' thoughts about summer wedding beer since I'm new here. Thanks!
