I'm going to a wedding this weekend.
It's my wife's sister and it will be fun and I helped buy the beer by texting furiously. We all have our ways of helping out. A bunch of Stone mixed IPA packs, a few cases of St. Archer Mosaic DIPA, some more of mixed Sculpin, some Karl Strauss Oktoberfests, Pacifico, Corona, and some Woot Stouts. Hey, it had to be at Costco because I wasn't on site.
Actually I think one of those beers will be the best beer I've had at a wedding.
I certainly didn't have better at my own wedding. That was a year or two before I got into craft beer, and we got married in the Yucatan, at a hacienda. We shopped at Costco, too, but we supplemented and had some really, really good Tequila at least.
Since, I've had some Kona beers, maybe a Maui IPA, some Lagunitas, and then I think I hit a soft spot in the schedule where people were having babies or not getting married or I dunno. I can't think of a better beer I've had a wedding right now at least. Woot woot!
I'm sure you guys can do *way* better.

Restrained beer weekend in California.
Sean Doolittle is opening up a cask for charity next Tuesday at Fieldwork.
The most comprehensive NEIPA piece I've seen.
