I would love to. Sadly all the beverage service companies in town won’t let you bring in any kegs that aren’t on their list, which is always Bud, Bud Light, Coors, and Miller. We also can’t bring in any outside alcohol, which is very sad since we have four local breweries with good beer.

I just can’t justify spending the extra $500 it would take to go with local brews and then buying the other alcohol myself. Plus I don’t have any friends I could con into bartending all night.

Yes! We want to drink local too, and will probably purchase a keg to serve during the reception. It’s from a brewery located in our college town, so we have very dear memories drinking this particular beer 🙂

Well, we technically DID have local beer—-Bud Light is born and brewed in St. Louis. That doesn’t mean i like it, though =]. I wanted something like Schlafly or another microbrew but unfortunately, everyone from st louis pretty much drinks AB

My Fiance and I are both beer snobs so we would love to have beer at the reception that isn’t Bub Light, Miller Light, etc (yay for drinking alcoholic water – not Undecided).  But our venue won’t allow you to bring in outside food or alcohol (except for the cake – but it has to be from a bakery – no homemade allowed).  They then charge a fortune for kegs of any other beer besides the above mentioned to where it just isn’t worth the expense – especially when a lot of our friends and family could care less about the type of beer they’re drinking (which I really just don’t get – lol).

@upstatebroad – those two beers sound delicious!!  Can I come to your reception and try them? Smile

beer was super important to Fiance and I when choosing a venue. We’re both very much beer people.  Our venue has three beers on tap, all locals.  the sly fox hefeweizen is especially good.  we also get to choose four bottles, and we can basically choose whatever we want.  thats where it gets tricky…there are so many wonderful options!  and of course we need to think of our guests…such a hard choice.  guinness is a given, but aside from that we’re still weighing our options.

PS – Beer was important for us too.  We’re having our wedding reception in a brewery 🙂
