What beer should I get for a party?
Starting with the right drink is important when hosting a beer party. Often the first question asked is, what beer should I get for a party? If beer is the “theme” of the party, it is important to have a variety of beers. This can be achieved by asking everyone to bring a different variety of beers. If you have a beer keg, consider something something light like a a pale ale! If renting a beer keg, often the brewery can direct you to a beer that is universally liked by both dark and light beer lovers. Search beer keg rental near me.
How do I host a beer tasting party at home?
If hosting a home beer tasting party, it is important to have a variety of light and dark beers as well as a variety of notes. What are notes in beer? Basic notes in beer include malty, grainy, sweet, corn-like, hay, straw, graham cracker, caramel, toast, roast, coffee, espresso, burnt, alcohol, leather, pine, fresh cut grass, pumpkin, ginger, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, and allspice. You can also include Dark Fruit Aromas like raisins, currant, plum, dates, prunes, figs, blackberry, blueberry.
To a achieve a variety of flavors for a beer tasting party, take a look at a Beer Sampler 6-Pack (also called a “mix 6”). Consider visiting a local brewery and they usually have tasting notes for the individual beers! This would be a great way to acquire your variety of beers too.
*Often beer tasting parties can lead to additional alcohol intake. Please use a ride sharing service like Uber for arriving and departing parties.

Pumpkin Beer Cooler
Oktoberfest? Have a pumpkin beer cooler! Such a cute way to style your tablescape with beer in a pumpkin. First remove the top and clean the inside of the pumpkin. Optional, place a clear glass bowl in the center of the pumpkin. Lastly, add ice and beer to keep your bottles cold. You’re even cooler (no pun) if you get beer notes with pumpkin flavor (like ground ginger, nutmeg, cloves, cinnamon, and allspice.) | How Sweet Eats
Beer Party Decor
Instead of a cheers and beers banner, try this idea. When looking for the best beer party décor, it’s possible to make your own by upcycling boxes you are using for the party. Take a look at our DIY Beer Garland from our Trailer Park Murder Mystery Party.
Mini Philly Cheesesteaks
You need some carbs to soak up the drinks. For a tasty beer party recipe, take a look at our Copycat White Castle Sliders or make these Mini Philly Cheesesteaks appetizers (from Valentina’s Corner) for a beer party. A petite version of a Philadelphia classic. Sliced roast beef, paired with a savory cheese sauce, accented with sautéed onions, peppers, and mushrooms; placed in a petite roll.
Printable Cheese Board Labels
You have to have an amazing variety of cheeses. When picking cheese for a beer party, pay attention to these rules.
- Riper and richer cheeses can handle a stronger beer and a higher alcohol percentage.
- Mild cheeses go well with mild beers.
- Sharp blue cheeses can handle a heavy black stout.
Ad an added note, we especially love the beer cheese from Trader Joe’s. Download our printable cheese board labels. If you want the larger set, grab the Cheese Markers on Etsy.
Beer Tasting Kit at Home
When looking for Beer Party activities, I love the idea of a blind tasting. A beer tasting birthday party wouldn’t be complete without a Beer Tasting Station. This is really easy to do and you can do a blind taste test using a brown paper bag or pick up these blind beer tasting bags or blind beer tasting board game. Don’t forget our own Tasting Score Card and Beer Games for Drinking. | Modern Moments Designs
Candied Bacon Recipe
Stockpile on the bacon because our Candied Bacon Recipe will be the most excellent addition to your beer party with friends. One option is to place them on a stick, and place your sticks in a glass beer mug for an easy beer party appetizer idea.
Inexpensive Party Food
When looking for party snacks, chips, nuts and snack mixes are a great mix. I love how these are displayed in glass bowls and fun appetizer wire baskets with basket liners. | Fete a Fete
Beer Bottle Cap Craft Idea
For easy beer party décor, upcycle beer bottle caps and a chalkboard. Add beer quotes, a beer menu list, and more. If you make enough, you could even hand them out as beer party party favors when guests leave or have a bowl as these Bottle Opener Rings for beer party party favor ideas as well. | Source
