Of course!! We love the idea of a reception inside a brewery [why should wineries have all the fun??!] We suggest adding a fun beer tasting to your cocktail hour, food and beer pairings at your reception, gift baskets of beer for your out of town guests, custom beer bottle labels with your name and wedding date on them, charming hops in your floral arrangements and more.
