i think the compromise you came up with sounds reasonable…i actually think its a cute idea to have a beer tasting, esp if it includes something homemade! 🙂

I love your husbands beer idea.  It is such a personal touch.  I noticed you mentioned you are on a budget, your idea is soo great but as the date gets closer and budgets tighter if something had to go I would say the wine.  It seems beer is your man’s “thing” and offering both is great but if something has to go stick with his beer.

I think if threre is room in the budget for a compromise that would be the best thing. It is great that you want everyone to try all of the different beers (and I really think they will during the cockatail hour) also you should think about having glasses that are “tasing size” even smaller plastic ones, people might be mroe inclined to try something if they didn’t feel like they would be wasting a whole beer to give it a shot. I alos really like the idea of using a Dues!

Since I don’t drink beer at all I wouldn’t be able to drink at your wedding 🙁 Most of my friends also don’t drink beer only a very small number of girls in my circle drink beer.

 

I think the beer tasting idea is cute but I think need to offer something else for others who don’t drink beer.

@mishelleez: agreed. i can’t stand the taste of beer, so i would also be disappointed.

maybe you could still HIGHLIGHT the beer, and not really promote the wine, just have it available for people who want it.

I think your proposal is a great idea.  The beer tasting is cute and a personal touch, and doesn’t leave those who can’t stand beer out in the cold.  These people really do exist–I’m one of them, and I have to admit that I’d be peeved if all the couple had was beer.  I have tried countless beers, even a pink fruity hibiscusy beer, and I just can’t stand it, let alone enjoy it.  I hate full-bodied red wines like Cabernet and I’d still rather have that over a beer.  I’m sure your husband’s brew is great, but there are some people who just don’t like beer, and would be left sad and totally sober, if all that was offered was beer.  Meanwhile, my FI would be sloshed because he loooves beer, especially Belgians, heh.  Note that I’m not saying that the point of attending your wedding should be to get drunk, but it does suck to have to abstain while everyone else is drinking just because you don’t like the one type of alcohol that’s being offered.

I LOVE the idea of a beer tasting, but I like different kinds of beer. That said, I don’t usually drink beer when I’m out, and at weddings I like my wine. I would offer something else for those who don’t like beer.

I also don’t drink beer. I really think you need to have some other options as well. I think its only fair to offer your guests another option even during the beer tasting. For those people who like beer, I am sure the beer tasting would be their preference anyways. I do think its a really cute idea. But to offer nothing during the cocktail hour for those who don’t drink beer could potentially be leaving a large number of your guests with nothing. 

Personally for me it would not change my opinion if it was listed on the invitation. Just because I know in advance that there is a beer tasting does not say to me that there would be no other options available.

I LOVE beer, but not at weddings. I like beer with pizza, wings and drink it during sports events or at a sports bar. At weddings, I would have cocktails (wine, if there isn’t liquor). Many people I know (especially women) do not like beer. If it is possible, I would try to offer a red and white wine for those who don’t like beer.

I wouldn’t drink it either or do the tasting. I think I’d have to be dying of thirst to even entertain the thought. Sorry. I’d be disappointed if that was all that was offered too.

I’m not a beer drinker and would not drink it during a “beer tasting”.  My husband offers me a sip of his all the time to see if I want to try it but it has absolutely has no appeal for me.  I think for some people, they just don’t like beer.

I would also be disappointed if that’s all there was, although I do like Belgian beers. I would try to offer wine where/when you can.
