RECEPTIONS

A CRAFT BEER BOUTIQUE is certainly no runof-the-mill reception venue. Then again, you’re no run-of-the-mill couple. A seasoned space for special events, Moondog Growlers has hosted its fair share of bachelor parties, birthday celebrations and corporate functions, but in February, its Dunwoody Growler & Pour House realized new potential when it hosted its first wedding reception for Ashley Javo and Charles “Chuck” Eller of Alpharetta. To pay homage to their shared passion for craft beer, the couple hosted an intimate evening with 40 guests, during which everyone was encouraged to sample flights of specialty brews as they celebrated their special union. “[Moondog Growlers] is like a second home for us, and it felt right to have our reception there,” Ashley said. “Not only do they have a great selection of craft beer, Eleanor, Scott and their staff are so friendly and welcoming. It literally is a place where ‘everybody knows your name.’” A great option for any home brewer, beer aficianado or fun-loving couple who wants to break the mold, Moondog’s Dunwoody location can accommodate up to 50 guests with two bartenders and customized tasting experiences. Couples are welcome to bring in a caterer of their choice, wedding cake and acoustic musician or playlist to play over the store’s sound system. moondoggrowlers.com 8
