Something Borrowed, Something Brewed? Wedding Related Beer Puns?
July 30, 2013 8:11 PM   Subscribe

My wedding is coming up this fall, My dad and I have brewed the beer to serve. Now we'd like to come up with some punny names for the beer. Please Help! What we have so far: Something Borrowed, Something Brewed (Speckled Heckle, A Spotted Cow Clone (A popular beer here in wisconsin))

The other names we have that aren't assigned to any particular beer
White Veil Ale
Hoppily Ever After
Ton Ale (My name is Tony. This one is kind of gross sounding)

The beers are Chocolate Oatmeal Stout, Cream Ale, Extra pale Ale, nut brown ale, and an american red.

Wow! Impressive array of homebrew!

Some years back, my husband and I made beer for his sister's wedding. We made Black Tie Portar and a Veilweizen. Not super punny but gets the idea across. Nuptiale is the punny name for a lovely beer from Ninkasi. I think you could borrow it. How about Queen of Hearts for the red? Or some other hearts/love theme. Kiss the Girl Red?

Been trying to think of something punny/wedding related for the nut brown without slipping into the wrong kind of double entendre. How about "Daddy got his shotgun, Brown"?

i think you almost got it ...something bottled, something brewed (def a blue label on that one)

Drunken Bride (any pic of any lady sleeping in a wedding dress (on the ground? slumped over?) on the label, particularly your fiance, would be hi-larious)

Also, I like "Forever Hold Your Peace" for the cream.

We named our engagement party beers after our hometowns: Blanche de Beloeil and Meadowbrook Brown Ale.

For the chocolate stout: Holy Maltrimony

Is the brown ale a honey brown? If so, Honeymoon Brown Ale, or just Honeymoon Ale

I think White Veil ale is a suitable name for a beer that causes a lot of lacing, maybe the cream ale?
