Ugh would you be upset if the beer ran out?

@hollyberry4:  Maybe it’s because I’m a humble grad student, but I don’t look a gift-beer-horse in the mouth.

Maybe for like a split second when I was first told that the beer was out, I might think “oh, shoot”, and then I’d have all that wine to choose from and I’d forget about it. Don’t feel bad! Having your wedding at a winery sounds awesome.

@hollyberry4:  I would actually skip the beer altogether and stick with the wine.  Then you don’t have to worry about it running out. You are getting married at a winery, so it makes sense that wine would be served.  Moreover, wine is more elegant for a wedding.  If someone really needs a beer or liquor, then can go to a bar after they leave your wedding.

I wouldn’t have beer at all for only half a keg, that’s like less than 100 cups. It will run out in 30mins – an hour I would guess. Just stick to wine since it’s a winery, better for the finances too!

I’d make an announcement at the start of the reception ‘hey guys you’ve got a selection of wines to choose from but there’s only half a keg of beer so once it’s gone it’s gone’


then they know.

I would just skip the beer altogether! Not worth the hassle or worry!
