We are serving kegs! Budlight and another one…. I don’t remember. My parents are buying all the wine since neither of us are that into it, so I have no idea on that part! And the bar is a full bar, so every liquor you can think of! Oh, we are also having a margartia machine πŸ™‚ yummy!!!!

I like Heineken. πŸ™‚ 

For wine, we have to look into the details, but we’d really like to get local reds and whites from Whole Foods. That’s the wine we drink most often, and it’s really good for its price. Not sure about what kind of champagne we’ll get yet. 

Same with beer, we’d like to go local. I think it’ll make for a fun talking point and Chicago knows its beer. 

Besides that, we’ll be going for signature drink ingredients from Binny’s. It really depends on how much money we have to play around with. I’d love to do a few nicer quality hard liquors like Grey Goose and Patron, but the money might not be there.

For beer, we had 3 kegs, 2 from the local Palisade Brewery and 1 Coors Light.  For wine we had Rene Barbier’s white, a local Chardonnay (which frankly wasn’t all that great) and Frontera’s Carmenere for the red.  The brewery also makes some sodas so we also had their rootbeer, gingerbeer and blackberry soda.  Oh!  And some local vodka to make Moscow Mules (ginger beer, vodka and lime.)

We will have bud light, budweiser and maybe corona. Wine, I am not sure, we will probaby go local. My Future Mother-In-Law is in charge of wine and she LOVES a lot of our local wineries. Bourbon is a big deal in my area. I live literally live in the “Bourbon Capital of the World”.  We make Makers Mark, Jim Beam, Evan Williams and almost any other bourbon that you can think of in my area, so there will be a huge asssortment of bourbon.

We’re doing Coors Light, Yuengling and Budweiser. For wine, we’re going with a merlot and pinot grigio. Hard liquor is the typical stuff. We’re also doing a signature blue martini πŸ™‚

We needed a venue that would let us bring in our own beer and wine because we’re known for our taste in both.

Beer – 2 kegs, one of a Belgian beer called Delirium Tremens (still searching for a source) and one of something else more readily available, like Fat Tire or Corona or Heineken.

White Wine
Edna Valley 2005 Chardonnay, Acacia 2006 Chardonnay

Red Wine
Chalone 2004 Pinot Noir, Sagelands Merlot, Clos de Lac Zinfandel, Solis Pinot Noir, Zonin Lambrusco (for rehearsal dinner)

Sparkling Wine
Jacob’s Creek Chardonnay & Pinot Noir Sparkling, and a Spanish cava

We are having Blue, Blue Light, Honeymoon (Summer ale of Blue Moon, get it?!) and Bud Light Lime for beers.

As for wines, we are still looking around for wines under $6 for our venue to get or we can go with what they have. 

We are still trying to figure out how to do a signautre cocktail.

Our venue doesn’t allow liquer so we are doing Coors Light and Corona, and for wine we will have a caberney sauvignon and a local reisling.  πŸ™‚

We’re going with beers from the local microbrewery (Mad Anthony) and the venue’s red and white house wines.

I would love love love to serve all local wine and beer but we have yet to find a reception venue that would allow for that within our budget. But I dream of a variety of New York born, really awesome tasting wine and beer!

I’m not sure yet. The boy’s brother is a wine and liquor rep, so we’ll probably get him to help us out with the wine selection.

As far as beer goes, we both prefer microbrews, but that can get pricey. We’ll probably get a case or two of local beers, though, and then get some crowd-pleasers (i.e. Yuengling Lager, Corona, Amstel Light).

We are doing kegs of Miller Lite and I think Budweiser. Wine will probably just be Chardonnay and Merlot. We are also serving vodka, gin, whiskey, rum, etc…

For red we are having pinot noir and a cab.  For the white we are having chardonnay.  We are undecided about beer, but probably a lighter, popular option such as Corona and a darker beer like New Castle. 

We will also have a full bar and champagne.
