Selecting the Right Beer For Your Wedding

By Matt Campbell

The selecting of beer for most weddings is on most grooms’ to-do lists. Selecting the right beer for your wedding is an easy task for most. The most popular beers in the USA are Bud Light, Miller Light, Budweiser and Coors Light. However, for the past several years, there has been a boon in craft beer sales.

Budweiser is part of the world’s largest brewery company, Anheuser-Busch InBev. Anheuser-Busch is a European owned company but is brewed in the USA. Miller and Coors joined forces and are part of SABMiller. SABMiller has origins in South Africa but has many brewing locations in the USA. InBev and SABMiller account for approximately 95 percent of all beer sales in the USA.

There are more than 1500 microbreweries across the USA and they account for less than 5 percent of all beer sales in the USA. A microbrewery is classified as producing less than 2 million barrels of beer per year and have less than 10 percent ownership by InBev or MillerCoors. In order to take share in the growing craft beer market, InBev and SABMiller have created many stand alone craft beer brands. InBev and SABMiller craft beers include Blue Moon, Leinenkugel’s Sunset Wheat, and Michelob Marzen. InBev also holds a stake in Red Hook and Widmer.

When selecting a beer for your wedding, the green choice is to select a local beer. Buying local beer cuts down on all transportation emissions and supports your local economies. Many local breweries will sell kegs and bottles for your wedding reception. If not, inquire at your local liquor store. If you buy bottles, don’t forget to recycle them.

There are a large amount of beer types being produced every year. The vast majority of beer drinkers in the USA like a light beer in taste and in color. Beer can fall into two classifications: ale and lager, depending on the type of yeast used in creation. The most common accepted beer types are light lagers and pale ales. These popular beers are light in body and have low bitter taste.

3 Uses for Mini Liquor Bottles

We’ve all seen miniature liquor bottles at liquor stores or, more stereotypically, in hotel room refrigerators. However, 50ml bottles of beer are growing in popularity. As a home brewer investing in miniature liquor bottles, if only a few, is a wise decision for several reasons.

1)      First off, the idea of giving small samples away to various retail establishments, such as bars and hotels, or bringing sample bottles with you to brew conventions is a great way to promote your product. Just be sure that when you’re presenting your small bottles to potential buyers that your name and contact information is on the label somewhere. True, much can be said with a business card, but if your name and contact information are right there on the label there’s a good chance you won’t be forgotten.

2)      Secondly, smaller bottles make excellent gifts at birthday and holiday events. In fact, small bottles of beer make the perfect wedding favor or gift for groomsmen.

3)      And lastly, because of their size, miniature bottles are both cheaper and easier to pack and ship.

When and if you decide to invest in miniature liquor bottles you may also want to consider branding. A variety of appropriately sized, well designed bottle labels can be found at
