I'll be spending 5 days in Palo Alto next week, and I'm looking for good beer. Specifically, I want to find a carry-out shop where I can pick up a few bottles of Russian River and other good local brews. I'll be staying on El Camino Real and will have very limited access to a car. Bonus points for any good brew pubs in the area too. Thanks!

Are the two beers bottled in the same plant? Should I worry about tampering? The store is reputable and I've never had any trouble with anything from there in 3 years.

What is the difference between wheat free and gluten free? I know it has something to do with proteins--I'm finding a lot of stuff about the gluten side but not a lot about just the wheat. More importantly, if someone is allergic to wheat but not gluten, can she drink non-wheat beer, like Budweiser?

I'm planning a wedding rehearsal dinner for about 100 guests. Besides the usual wine service I'd like to do something different and do a beer pairing menu.

I think the logistics of serving will limit us to one beer (about 6 oz) per course regardless of food selection, which is the tricky part. [more inside]

Even a Sam Adams will work, pretty much anything but the usual Bud, Miller, or Labatt's.
