Keg ideas for my Wedding?

General Beer Discussion by FLASHPRO

Yup, I'm tying the knot... but forget all the stinkin' flowers, cruddy cake and nutty dancing... we need beer!!! I always said I'd have to get something great on tap for my wedding party (which is oddly taking place 4 weeks after the actual wedding). One friend offered to get a keg of Chimay. I was also thinking it would be cool to get some dogfish head 90min and a Randall (their crazy hopping contraption). Anyone have any ideas? I could possibly go for a few different kegs if I just get sixtels, and maybe a bunch of different cases. The party will be early August.

In Reply To #1 A keg of Chimay Grand Reserve would be nice, especially with it's wine like properties. I would also suggest Corsendonk Monk's Brown Ale. It's a completely different animal on tap than in a bottle. Very, very good IMO. Randall and 90 minutes seems like a bad idea to me. I'm guessing you're not bringing together two families of beer nerds, so the crazy hopping may be over the top. Try something very palatable like a witbier, pilsner, or wheat beer. The thirst quenchers will be good for the summer heat too. Other suggestions: Abbaye des Rocs Grand Cru Ommegang Witte Blanche de Brooklyn Allagash White Victory Prima Pils Paulaner Hefe Hoegaarden Grand Cru Victory Whirlwind Witbier, mmmm... Whirlwind wit...... Personally, I think I would try to get a hold of Ommegang Witte, if that failed, I would go with Victory Whirlwind Wit. If I were doing multiple kegs, then one keg of Chimay GR, one keg of Ommegang Witte, and one keg of Prima Pils.

In Reply To #2 Haha, yes the Randall could be overkill, but I'd only get a sixth keg of it. There will be enough of my friends invited that'll be able to take care of that one. PLUS I'd take the rest home with me :) Since the party is well after the wedding I'll be home the next day, not on a honeymoon. I didn't think of the Corsendonk. I've had that on tap serveral times and enjoy it. I know a lot of my girlfriend's family likes Chimay, and they're not beer nerds. I don't know how many would drink the 90 minute. I served some to her uncle one day, who likes Coors. We split the bottle, and I'm not sure if he would have been able to finish if it wasn't for that. He did say he liked it though, haha.

In Reply To #3 Well, if you're taking the rest home with you... get stuff that you love, and know no one else will like. Seriously.

In Reply To #5 LOL. But that brings me back to a tough decision. Do i bite the bullet and get a few cases of bland beer that I know most of the people will drink? Or do I force them all to drink a more respectable pilsner? A substitution of victory prima pils, as cottrell mentioned, would taste much better, but I'm sure some of the people will be all upset if there is no rolling rock, bud, or yuengling lager

I just had Alexander Keith's at a party out of a keg and it ws pretty good. Depends on how fancy/intellectual you want to get with your beer...remember half the people at your wedding won't appreciate a good beer anyhow and the other half will prob spend teh day bashing your beer choice as too dark, too light, too somethin

In Reply To #7 I can't get alexander keith's here. I've never had it either. I'm not worried about people complaining about the keg(s) i choose because we'll still have bottles of the usual stuff. The good beer will be mostly for my friends and I
