Wedding Industry Taps Craft Beer Craze

Wedding Industry Taps Craft Beer Craze


True lovers of beer are serving up brews at their nuptials. Would you?

Craft beer may be the new drink of choice at weddings.

Some think beer should be kept out of weddings, like the whole town that got riled up by a New Zealand bride swigging a beer before walking down the aisle. But stateside, craft beer may be the new drink of choice at weddings.

Local beers, beer flights, and craft beers are becoming more the norm at weddings, reports the Associated Press. Anja Winikka, site editor of TheKnot.com, told the AP she's noticed more beer-themed wedding receptions in the last two years. "What you're seeing is that instead of the signature cocktail — like the fruity, weird martini thing that a lot of people were doing five, 10 years ago — couples are saying, 'That's not really our style, so were going to do a beer flight at our cocktail hour,'" Winikka said.

And even brewers are starting to respond: Brewer's Alley in Maryland now sells a "Wedding Alt," a German-style ale that can be personalized for the couple. Even Sam Adams has begun offering a "Brewlywed Ale."

Whether beer, champagne, or cocktails, we can all raise a toast to a happy couple and wedding, right? And hey, if you're nowhere near walking down the aisle, just remember: your beer choice says a lot to a date.

GALION — The city’s brewing legacy begins a new chapter this year as the 1803 Brewery & Taproom arrives on the craft beer scene.

After an ownership change in early 2019, months of construction ensued to install a nano-brewing system in the back of the business. The brewery reopened in November and the crew is now preparing for an all-day grand opening celebration on Jan. 18.

“This has been a long time coming. It took a lot of people to help make this brewery a reality, so thank you to all our friends. We’re excited to bring quality craft beer to Galion,” general manager Shawn Woerlein said.

The town had several breweries in operation throughout the 19th century and prior to Prohibition, including Galion Standard and the Galion Brewing Company.

1803’s brewing system yields about 60 gallons of beer per batch. The first house beers customers will get to taste during the grand opening will be:

  • Willa Wheat, an American wheat ale
  • Naturally Blonde?, an easy-drinking blonde ale
  • Perfection Pale Ale, a pale ale that packs the hops
  • Delaney Red, an Irish red ale

The brewmaster behind the beer is Garry “Murph” Murphy. He has been home brewing for more than three decades, creating and tweaking recipes.

Murphy has been perfecting the Delaney Red for 10 years. “We put a limited amount of the Delaney and the Willa on tap for a taste test recently. We received good feedback from customers. The brewing process has been long but rewarding,” he said.

The Perfection, another of his recipes, has been in development for six years. The blonde and wheat beers are both new recipes created by Murphy and Woerlein.

The grand opening event begins at 9 a.m. with a Bloody Mary and mimosa bar. Tours of the brewery will be offered throughout the day. Jimmy B’s BBQ will offer food from 4-10 p.m. and local band Crazy Gringos will perform from 8-10 p.m.

“We invite the community to taste our beers and check out the new atmosphere. We’re the only brewery in Crawford County and one of the few in this area,” Woerlein said.

1803 first opened in 2015 in Historic Uptowne Galion with a concept of selling Ohio craft beer. It quickly became a neighborhood hangout for those who appreciated good beer. The business was then sold to a new ownership team in 2019. In addition to Woerlein and Murphy, the team consists of: John and Lori Bassett, Matt Echelberry, Trudy Kempf, and Sam Thacker.

“I look forward to the partnership with the other owners and with the community,” John Bassett said. “Our goal is to continue expanding this business. Ohio now has more than 300 craft breweries.”

In addition to the house beers, 1803 will feature guest taps from other breweries, one tap dedicated to hard cider, and two taps dedicated to domestic beer. Spirits made by the Iron Vault Distillery are also available, as well as various local wines and domestic bottles. Customers can still expect the occasional food truck to be parked out front, live music and other special events.

The brewmaster behind the beer is Garry “Murph” Murphy. He has been home brewing for more than three decades, creating and tweaking recipes.

Murphy has been perfecting the Delaney Red for 10 years. “We put a limited amount of the Delaney and the Willa on tap for a taste test recently. We received good feedback from customers. The brewing process has been long but rewarding,” he said.

The Perfection, another of his recipes, has been in development for six years. The blonde and wheat beers are both new recipes created by Murphy and Woerlein.

The grand opening event begins at 9 a.m. with a Bloody Mary and mimosa bar. Tours of the brewery will be offered throughout the day. Jimmy B’s BBQ will offer food from 4-10 p.m. and local band Crazy Gringos will perform from 8-10 p.m.

“We invite the community to taste our beers and check out the new atmosphere. We’re the only brewery in Crawford County and one of the few in this area,” Woerlein said.

1803 first opened in 2015 in Historic Uptowne Galion with a concept of selling Ohio craft beer. It quickly became a neighborhood hangout for those who appreciated good beer. The business was then sold to a new ownership team in 2019. In addition to Woerlein and Murphy, the team consists of: John and Lori Bassett, Matt Echelberry, Trudy Kempf, and Sam Thacker.

“I look forward to the partnership with the other owners and with the community,” John Bassett said. “Our goal is to continue expanding this business. Ohio now has more than 300 craft breweries.”

In addition to the house beers, 1803 will feature guest taps from other breweries, one tap dedicated to hard cider, and two taps dedicated to domestic beer. Spirits made by the Iron Vault Distillery are also available, as well as various local wines and domestic bottles. Customers can still expect the occasional food truck to be parked out front, live music and other special events.

GALION — The city’s brewing legacy begins a new chapter this year as the 1803 Brewery & Taproom arrives on the craft beer scene.

After an ownership change in early 2019, months of construction ensued to install a nano-brewing system in the back of the business. The brewery reopened in November and the crew is now preparing for an all-day grand opening celebration on Jan. 18.

“This has been a long time coming. It took a lot of people to help make this brewery a reality, so thank you to all our friends. We’re excited to bring quality craft beer to Galion,” general manager Shawn Woerlein said.

The town had several breweries in operation throughout the 19th century and prior to Prohibition, including Galion Standard and the Galion Brewing Company.

1803’s brewing system yields about 60 gallons of beer per batch. The first house beers customers will get to taste during the grand opening will be:

  • Willa Wheat, an American wheat ale
  • Naturally Blonde?, an easy-drinking blonde ale
  • Perfection Pale Ale, a pale ale that packs the hops
  • Delaney Red, an Irish red ale

The brewmaster behind the beer is Garry “Murph” Murphy. He has been home brewing for more than three decades, creating and tweaking recipes.

Murphy has been perfecting the Delaney Red for 10 years. “We put a limited amount of the Delaney and the Willa on tap for a taste test recently. We received good feedback from customers. The brewing process has been long but rewarding,” he said.
