Beer Decision '08

Here are the beers we considered for the wedding, from left to right: Dogfish Head 60-minute IPA, Bell's Two Hearted Ale, Big Boss Hell's Belle, The Duck-Rabbit Milk Stout, and Highland Gaelic Ale. We decided to get small kegs for the wedding reception, with the exception of a few cases of Bud or Michelob to keep the Joe six-packs happy. Just kidding: I'm not adopting that phrase. I think using kegs will create less waste and make clean-up easier for our caterer. Trash bags full of beer bottles are not fun to tote to the dumpster. Plus, we both really like draft beer. 

Chris picked up the above beers at Chip's and we had a tasting. Oh, the tortures of wedding planning! They are all excellent beers, but in the end we chose Bell's Two Hearted Ale (Chris's favorite IPA) and The Duck Rabbit Milk Stout (this is just great beer). For a Hefeweizen pick (my favorite style of beer) I think we will have a keg filled at our local brew pub. It just happens to be America's only wind-powered brew pub. Two out of our three picks are North Carolina beers, which makes us happy. Next up: Adventures in Wine Tasting as we search for an incredibly cheap, but actually pretty tasty red wine.
