5 Reasons to Plan Your Wedding in a Maryland Brewery

People love beer. But seriously, who doesn’t love a cold beer on a hot summer day (or any day for that matter?)

Buy & support local. Craft beer is the new signature cocktail! For fun wedding reception beverage options, you can discuss the possibility of creating your own special brew for the day or, schedule a tasting and choose your favorite beer(s) to serve.

Breweries provide the perfect laid-back setting. Breweries tend to have a very industrial vibe. While most wedding venues are built to be elegant and classy, this is not the main goal of a brewery. Many brewery structures feature exposed brick, concrete floors, and metal beams, making it a unique venue option for couples trying to escape the traditional wedding feeling.

(Almost) no guests limitation. The good thing about beer halls is that they tend to be quite large. This means that you’ll be able to have a large guest list plus, breweries usually have large, family-style tables and benches offering adequate and casual seating.

Budget-friendly. Most people have never considered holding their wedding in a brewery. This means that you’re more likely to receive better rates when you choose a brewery as your venue as opposed to a traditional wedding venue or hotel that has been hosting weddings for years. Plus, you’ll likely be able to work closely with the brewery staff to ensure your vision comes to life just right. Oh, and did I mention the savings on alcohol that might be available? 🙂
