Thanks for all the input so far.
It's for a restaurant. My friend and I went over all the distributors' lists to see what's available, but I'd prefer to stick with local first, then craft, then import. He has room to get a case each of whatever we decide, up to a point. No draught. Some of these cases are twice as much money as others.
Brewmaster's Table recommends German Wheat, then Saison, then Pale Ale.
So, for local, we can get St. Somewhere Saison Athene in big bottles. We can get Cigar City Jai Alai IPA and and a less aggressive IPA from Cold Storage. I recommended Prima Pils, probably the freshest German Pils we can get in this part of the world. Either Hoergarden or Blue Moon or both - people may buy more of the latter if they're not into craft beer and he wants to at least consider sales.
I added Blue Point Toasted Lager and Terrepin Rye to his list because I'd probably order those with Thai food.
I wish there was a good fresh Weizen around here.
