Four Points by Sheraton is an airport hotel, only a little over one mile from LAX, but they’re really trying to make themselves stand out as a premiere wedding reception venue. The hotel’s general manager, Phil Baxter, got the idea to create a “Hoppily Ever After” package for couples that book a wedding reception at the Four Points LAX hotel; it’s the first of its kind in the entire country.
Once you book the package, you get to go visit craft microbrewery, Enegren Brewing Company in Moorpark, to meet the brewers who are going to make all of your wedding day drinking dreams come true. You and your fiance will talk to them about what you guys like, as well as which flavors, styles and ingredients you’re interested in. Once you’re all on the same page, the brewers will decide what will be needed to create your beer and you will come back for a hands-on brewing session at another date (you can bring a few friends to watch from the tasting room, too). You will have a final tasting to make sure you love your personalized beer and then Enegren will brew up to 30 gallons to be served to guests on your big day.
It may seem random for an airport hotel to be a trailblazer in brew-your-own beer wedding packages, but Four Points LAX has already established itself as “the beer hotel.” Their on-site bar, Brewster’s – A Beererie, has been pouring craft beers for over a decade and they have more than 16 tap beers and more than 100 bottles of beer. The six poolside taps are dedicated to small, local California breweries. They even have their own Beer Advisory Board, as well as a Beer Club.
This dedication to beer has resulted in TravelChannel.com listing Four Points LAX as one of the top beer destinations in North America, and Brewster’s being honored with the Restaurant Management Magazine Sip Award for Best Regional Beer Selection.
So… anyone want to get married?
