Even if you're not a beer lover, brewery wedding venues are a great option for your upcoming nuptials. If you're looking for an industrial-style space that has elements of rustic charm, a brewery may fit the bill. Most breweries have exposed brick elements, large light-filled windows and steel beams, enabling the colors of your wedding palette to shine through. In addition to having multiple in-house beers on tap for all of the beer lovers in your life, many brewers also offer cider, seltzer and wine to accommodate all of the different preferences among your guests. Some even offer outdoor ceremony space, ideal if you're looking to exchange vows surrounded by nature. We love the diverse array of spaces and offerings at all of these breweries.

The East Coast, especially New England, is known for its breweries, but other popular places across the country are emerging, including North Carolina, Colorado and Oregon. For a complete list of brewery wedding venues and event spaces, head to The Knot Marketplace. No matter where you're tying the knot, there's sure to be a hop-filled wedding venue with your name on it.
