I am getting married at a winery, and guests will have unlimited wine (6 varieties, some fruit wines and some dry) all night. Unfortunately due to the winery’s liquor license we are only allowed a half keg of beer and no liquor (and we have to pay $250 just to have it, not including the price of the actual keg!).
We will have about 135 guests. I have a feeling it will run out 🙁 I hope guests don’t get upset if it does! Would you guys be upset? There is really nothing I can do about it, but I will still feel bad!!

@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!

@likewoah: haha I have never heard that phrase and had to look it up! Clearly I have been living under a rock!

thanks! I wanted to do this but I know some people are not “wine people” so really just wanted to offer an alternative to make sure they will have something to drink! In my head it made sense that only the people that didn’t like wine would drink the beer, but I just realized more people will probably drink it and it will run out, so it won’t matter anyway! Oh well!

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!
