Beer Recommendations for Island Themed Party

missmodular818 | Sep 17, 2007 10:09 AM

Hey Chowhounders~

I admit it. I do not know squat about beer. I have to throw a party for 100 people and only have a budget of $1000 for beer (I may be able to bump it up to $1500 but we haven't bought the wine yet). The food we are serving is Caribbean/Cuban/Jamacian/Argentinean mesh. Does anyone have any beer recs appropriate for this type of food? Specifically our menu will consist of :

Appetizers -
Arentinean Chicken and Olive Empanadas with Chimichurri Sauce
Jamacian Jerk Chicken Skewers
Tropical Fruit Skewers (Mango, Papaya, Pineapple & star fruit)

Entree-
Green Salad
Argentinean Steaks with Chimichurri Sauce
Pollo Picante (Chicken in a Garlic, Paprika, Citrus Marinade)
White Rice
Cuban Style Black Beans
Plantains
