Are there specific types of beer/wine that work better for this recipe?

Just wondering if there are specific types of beer/wine that work better for this than others. I don't drink beer or wine, but I will cook with them. For other recipes, I tend to favor a brown ale style beer. Would that be too dark for this? Would a hard cider be a good option instead of beer?

I suspect your hunch that a brown ale might be overpowering is correct. I use hard cider often with chicken. If you can look for one that is more dry than sweet.
