Say "I Do" with Beer

Toasting the bride and groom with Champagne
is de rigueur. But recently, couples hip (or is
that hops?) to craft beers are shaking up the
wedding reception scene by insisting on serving
the brews they love on their big day, everything
from local ales to home brews concocted by the
bride and groom.   Many receptions now offer
tasting stations with beers from around the world

In Albany, C.H. Evans Brewing Co. has available
for rental a beer trailer suitable for pulling up to
wedding receptions. Brewer's Alley in Maryland
offers a "Wedding Alt" (an altbier is a
German-style brown ale) in bottles that can be
customized with the newlyweds' names. And
last month, the nation's largest craft brewer, the
makers of Samuel Adams beer, offered  a
"Brewlywed Ale." It was sold in wine-sized
bottles with a sparkling wine-style cork.

Can't find the perfect beer to have and to hold
on your wedding day? You can always brew
your own.  Home made brew is the fastest
growing new addition to wedding receptions
according to Bridal Planning magazine.

So clink your pints instead of those champagne
flutes...."beers & cheers to the happy couple"!
You don't say.....

Will the real brewing god please stand up - Mythical Flemish

nine daughters, all brewed ale (or mead) for the gods.

The Christmas song Good King Wenceslas was written
about a King who ruled in the 10th Century. He wasn't such
a kindly old man as we were once taught. He did in-fact
order the death penalty for anyone caught exporting cuttings
from any Bohemian hops because they were so valued.
King Hummurabi  of  old Babylonia decreed that each person
was to have a daily ration of beer, this amount determined
by their social status. He then went onto say that women
would be drowned if they served bad beer.
Ya gotta love these guys
