Get married at GABF

CATEGORIES: Beer Editor  

I can’t think of a more romantic place to get married than inside the hall at the Great American Beer Festival. You and your bride, exchanging vows while a dude wearing a hat made out of a PBR case holds your rings. A couple of people snacking on pretzel necklaces hold back tears. Somewhere, somebody drops their plastic sampling cup and the crowd erupts, drowning out the ceremony. But they can’t drown out your eternal devotion to each other.

But, seriously, if you want to get married at GABF next month, Houston-based Saint Arnold Brewing can make it happen. The brewery plans to set up a chapel at its booth, and will have an employee officiate the ceremony—he won’t be wearing a PBR hat, but he will be dressed as Saint Arnold of Metz, the patron saint of brewers. The brewery is currently planning the wedding schedule, so give them a shout if you’re interested (it will also offer civil ceremonies and vow renewals).

But before you take the plunge, don’t forget to bring a Colorado marriage license (the Denver Office of the Clerk and Recorder is located a mere four blocks from the convention center). And pretzel necklaces—you don’t want to be tipsy on your wedding day.
