I would love it! I’ve attended some of my favorite receptions at breweries! I think they are super fun, usually have a great atmosphere and would be great especially if you and your partner love beer!

sboom :  I would love this, some of the best weddings I’ve been to have been in a bit more laid back setting.

 I think it would be fun! I live in Michigan where we have tons of breweries. They all have great atmospheres and great food. Plus I’m sure your family would understand if your fiance’s mother is unable to travel. She’s definitely a guest of honor and putting her health at risk isn’t worth it.

I know there’s a brewery in the downtown city nearby that is actually a pretty popular reception location. I have been there (not in a wedding compacity) and it was really cool. So, I would say look into it!

I wouldn’t think twice about it/think its a great idea. There are some upscale breweries in my area which are very popular (and pricey) wedding venues. Certainly not tacky!

sboom :  I think it’s a great idea! My husband and I love beer, especially craft beer, so we would be all in. We also recently went to a wedding at a winery and it was gorgeous. A brewery would definitely be a fun and unique atmosphere.

We did ours at a brewpub and it was awesome!!! Great beer (duh lol), food, and a nice yet casual atmosphere. We had a private room with a sound system, projector, three servers just for us (50 people), everything we needed…

Our room had exposed limestone walls, wood floors, and we decorated. It looked super nice!  We had family travel from across the country and they had a great night!

I would love it! We actually considered getting married at our favorite brewery but it would have had to be a weekday (not including Friday) and was a little bit too small.

I wouldn’t be super enthusiastic about it, but that is because I really dislike beer.  As in, ever since I was a little girl the smell of beer has made me feel sick to my stomach.  But I think it’s a plan that makes a lot of sense in your circumstances.  Hopefully wine or cocktails will be available in addition to the beer?

I’ve been to many great breweries that serve great food or have wonderful event rooms and catering.  My only beef with them and why I didnt go with one for the last event I planned is they rarely allow outside wine or hard liquor and usually only allow their own beer (which I totally understand that last part and liking their beer is why they would be in contention in the first place).  That would work for my SO and his friends, but most of my family, friends, and myself drink bourbon or whisky.  While I like a good beer every once in awhile and I like to make sure I always host a couple of really good beers, one is about my limit and I don’t want only beer served at my events.  The last party I threw for about 60 at a restaurant – the bar tab consisted of about 80% hard liquor, 10% wine, and 10% beer.  So the limited bar offerings have always been my gripe with breweries.  But if your crowd is really into beer or you don’t mind the limitation (or you managed to find a brewery with a full liquor license) then have at it.
