Mission accomplished!!

Wedding went flawlessly. All beers came out perfect, had great carbonation and tasted as expected. The IPA and the kolsch were the favorites by far, but the wit had a strong following too. The pale ale was the least drank with only 5 gallons accounted for as drank. 10 remaining are being sent to a friends housewarming party. The only equipment failure encountered was a broken o ring on one keg, and was fixed by other brewers without finding me. The supplication 3 liter sat on the wedding part table but once we poured ours, we invited people up to have some. Went through all t 2 inches of it, which we sampled the morning after but it was too flat to enjoy then. Opened really foaming on pours but no massive spill or bottle bomb.

The wedding bourbon porters were almost all given out except 1-2 bottles and a growler for our anniversary.

All in all a complete success. But obviously the beer is only part of things. We had a great wedding, all vendors did as expected, all friends and family were accounted for and got there and home without issue... The scariest parts of the weekend were getting the bug there (bad fuel pump was stalling) and towed back home and the truck loaded up with 1000 lbs of food beer, kegs, and open container violations back to the house. Exhausted we got it all back and thanks to an amazing bridesmaid, everything was put back and our bags were packed for us for the trip so we could sleep.

On a flight from Austin to Chicago now. Next stop is Brussels.
