An IPA would be a nice choice!

I would love to include a few micro-brews but because we’re having our formal wedding in Canada that’s easier said than done. Ontario has hellish liquor laws and microbreweries are hard to come by.

We’re offering Heineken Light (my fav), Octoberfest (Fi’s fav and it goes along with our fall theme) and we still have to decide on the third.

Wow, you have hit my beer heart.  I lived in Missoula and now I am in Madison.  I think the IPA or the Octoberfest are great choices!  Both are very drinkable.  If you are ever in Missoula, go to the Big Sky Brewery- they give out free “samples.”  🙂

Yum.  Beer can be like meal.  I will check out Great Dane!  One of my all-time favorites (and I would love to serve it) is Blue Moon, served with an orange slice.  It tends to be a crowd pleaser.

There are some pretty great approachable and crisp IPA’s that are great for those later summer days (like, say, Sept 3rd :)). New Belgium, go figure, has an great one- the Ranger IPA. I’m from the Pacific northwest, aka the land of hops, so I might be a tad biased. Great Octoberfests are great choice too and would be better if you have guests who are not beer snobs.

Either way- I like your beer style!

Do you guys have Surly in WI? My favorite beer right now is LiftBridge Farm Girl. I also love pretty much anything Leinenkugel’s makes.

Fiance is the beer snob in our house and if he can figure out how to get it, we’ll have a keg of his favorite IPA, Pliny the Elder which is made locally by Russian River Brewing.  He has heard that they won’t do kegs, but we’re going to try to figure something out.  If we can’t do that I assume we’ll have something from Lagunitas, which is also local and delicious!  Then we’ll have at least one lighter beer (probably Corona, seems to be the standard).

Okay so I’m from Wisconsin and used to live in Madison too! 🙂

My first suggestion is to ask the guys who are coming to your wedding what they like to drink best. My Packer club here in L.A. drink Coors light (ICK! GROSS!).

But my strongest suggestion to you, from a very old beer drinking snob like myself is to suggest that you get Sprecher Amber on tap.
