I thought I’d share and possibly inspire a few of you with this awesome DIY detail we included in our wedding! We MADE our own beer! DH is a big craft beer fanatic so we decided to make the beer we served at the wedding. I designed the label based off our color scheme and used one of our engagement photos. We called the pale ale style beer “Something Borrowed Something Brewed.” All of our guests loved it!!
The final photo is the pro shot from the wedding itself.

my fiance brews too – he is making all the beer (we have a kegerater system with 4 taps, so we’ll be doing that), and he made all the wine too. I don’t exactly know how much the beer will cost, but the wine is about $2/bottle, and it is REALLY good! We are saving so much money doing it this way, and it makes the wedding a little more personal!
PS, your labels look awesome!

@ferdie224: That’s really cool!! We considered making our own wine as well but ended up not because it could either go really well or flop and we’ve never made wine before so we didn’t want to risk it. The beer ended up being around $3 per large format bottle. Pretty good savings!!

our venue, despite having an open bar and an extra beer package, has graciously offered to let us bring in a small keg or two of our homebrew if we like.
Our venue doesn’t do bottles – in part because of clean up, but I think mostly because the venue coordinator doesn’t like to see beer bottles in photos. 😛
If FI gets off his derrier and brews up a batch or two, I’ve told him that we can fold the cost of the kegging system into the wedding costs. So, we’ll see how that works out!
