Wedding beer names
« on: February 17, 2015, 03:28:48 PM »
Need some help with catchy names for five wedding beers.


IPA - Leaning towards "Hoppily Ever After IPA" - I'm sure it has been done a million times, but it works.
Coffee Stout - "Waffles' Coffee Stout" - I call my lady Waffles, happy mistake from a drunken morning years ago
80/- - "No You Can't Wear a Kilt Scottish Ale"
Saison - ????
All Nelson Kolsch - ????

what no Polygamy Porter?  ;D

well, Raison d'etre roughly translates to reason for being, which is kind of a sappy wedding reference, but some people like that stuff so... Saison D'etre

Nelson - i thought Willie Nelson, so i was thinking either..."Nothin I Can Do About it Now" or "You Were Always on My Mind"  depending on your sense of humour, or lack thereof.  may be a stretch having to explain the Nelson connection though...

Saison Défloration.
Only if it's a cherry Saison...

But seriously, I'd go with something like "Saison de L'Amour", or something like that. Cheesy, corny, but a bit romantic sounding.

For Kölsch, all I got is "Kölsch Feet".

Both of those are pretty dang good.

I don't know if the older folks would find the humor in Défloration, plus that ship has sailed.

I like the Willie Nelson references as well.

When I think of Kölsch I think of sunshine, so maybe incorporate your honeymoon destination in the name.

From the proof of our food and beer menu, ours were as follows:




Except that the 10pm saison tapping was changed from the peach/ginger thing to a beer called "Dupont". It was just the base beer from all the other saisons since the peach/ginger thing tasted weird in bench trials. The drunk people never noticed.

We didn't feel the need to make corny names. If they related to the wedding, great. If not, we didn't care.

PS - one of our groomsmen did actually wear a kilt.

Use a touch of honey in your Kolsch and call it "Honey Do Kolsch."

Here was my line up.... Nice choice on Hoppily Ever After  ;)



Also, I think I've mentioned this to you before. I'd type up a description of the beers and have available at the bar. This will help out less educated beer drinkers decide on a beer that won't be wasted. Everything that kicked.... Pale ale first, IPA second, golden ale, and then the cherry wheat. I would have thought the golden ale woulda went first and figured the IPA go last. But, the people who will drink the IPA will more than likely stick to the IPA and drink several of them.

We planned on typing up and printing a few beer menus for people to look over before they got to the bar. With my group, I'm betting the saison and ipa go first, followed by the kolsch. Stout and scottish are a bit of a wildcard.

Got it all brewed yet, Steve ?  Sounds like a ton of work.
