I think its a great idea. Its no different than having the wine there and looks good.

I can’t see anything wrong with it.  Why not ?  and besides, how else would you drink craft beer Wink

Those are awesome.  Too bad they are illegal here in Florida.

My only concern would be keeping them cold- if I’m the only person at a table drinking the beer, by my second glass it would probably be getting a little warm.  I’m picky about the temperature of beer though, way more so then I am about wine.

Sounds good to me. Just don’t be too dilligent about refilling so you don’t have to worry about warm beer wasting away on your tables.

I would be SO happy to attend a wedding with growlers on the table 🙂

@louloubelle84:  Maybe there is a city ordinance that supercedes the state law for the brewery (or the brewery is doing it to challenge the law) but they are illegal in the State of Florida.

How hard is it to operate th growler tap? How likely is it to be spilled on the table? Will it be in the center of the table and everyone has to lean in to use it?

The keg looks fine, but I know when I have to use the keg that has a pump, I usually skip it, as it is not at all obvious to me how it works. SO I think as long as it is clear how to operate and not messy, that seems fine.
