I was thinking about Pony Express, but would be open to other games as well. Ideally something fun and different and might be good with a beverage.

I'd rather go with El Paso a fun push-your-luck-affair with a nice schadenfreude element to it.

or something ultra-light like Pickomino

Your mention of Pony express made me think of Dice Town: gets good reviews, and the poker dice should go well with beer. Or Whisky.
Edit: Read this review. A Review a Week #4 - Dice Town: You know a game is good when one of your friends is cursing and laughing at the same time. It fits your request so well it is almost scary.

Pickomino is also good, great recommendation.

If you don't mind randomness, perhaps The Red Dragon Inn? Only 2-4 players though.

Ditto to For Sale. For something a little heavier, more along The Adventurers, but with a great theme, Pirate's Cove.

Thanks for the mention of Dice Town I actually already own it which is why I was thinking about Pony Express.
