Wedding Trend: A Casual Beer Garden Party


Today, I am so excited to share this AWESOME laid back wedding that Culinary Crafts did recently!  Not only was it beautiful, but we created a beer garden complete with beer tastings for guests one of our favorite local breweries.  So COOL!  It was so much fun and the out of town guests LOVED it!  Plus, it showcased the amazing local brews that we have here in Utah.  Check it out! BeerGarden Memorial House is such a great venue and we loved this welcome chalkboard with paper fans for favors.  Plus, it set the tone for the laid back beer garden vibe. BeerGarden2 This reclaimed wood signage was awesome and fit the space perfectly! BeerGarden3 Our beer garden showcased three local Squatters brews, an Organic Amber, a Pale Ale, and a Golden Ale.  All great choices! BeerGarden4 We created an outdoor lounge for guests to relax and mingle.  A perfect, casual wedding setup! BeerGarden6BeerGarden5 Guests could try one (or all three) of the beers and then get their favorite to drink while perusing the "pub style" bites we created to go along with the beers! BeerGarden7 Culinary Crafts served House Made Soft Pretzels with a variety of mustards and cream cheese, Miniature Fried Pickles with Ranch Dressing, and Miniature Corn Dogs with Classic Ketchup and Mustard.  SO YUMMY! BeerGarden8 BeerGarden9 We also served some of our Culinary Crafts favorites for butler passed hors d'oeuvres as well.  Our Coconut Crusted Shrimp and Cheese Stuffed Cherry Tomatoes were great light fare for this summer party! BeerGarden10 We couldn't stop there, though.  We also had a selection of House Made Breads, Local Artisan Cheeses, Fruit, Hummus, Roasted Vegetables, and Olives.  The guests really loved all of the variety!

This wedding was such a great example of how couples can make they day a little different and show their guests a one of a kind experience!  We loved creating this beer garden and all of the fun "pub style" foods to go along with it!  Happy planning, everyone!
