Memorial day weekend was almost a month ago, I can’t believe it! Seems like just yesterday we were celebrating my dad’s 60th birthday with a Mustache and Beer Bash theme. The party included beer flavored cupcakes, a beer tasting and pub snacks, temporary mustache tattoos and fuzzy stick on mustaches, and custom decorations.

Mustache and Beer Bash
The giant ’60’ was from another memorable 60th birthday at the cabin that we were able to reuse for this event. My mom made the wood and bottle cap ‘Beer’ sign using hot glue. Turned out pretty great! The letter J covered in bottle caps was also a crafty idea of my mom’s while I made the frame with the bottle caps and all of the graphics. We reused 6-pack holders for snacks such as popcorn, peanuts, cheese-its mix and pretzels.
The beers were selected from World Market, we tasted in order from light to dark. There were actually two rounds, the second round had another dark beer, a sour beer, hard root beer, hard iced tea, hard ginger beer and hard pear cider. Twelve drinks were tasted in total, which seems like a lot however we used small party shot glasses with mustache stickers to taste the different beers. Don’t worry we didn’t fill them full. We also tried to take our time consuming the drinks. Gramma seemed to really enjoy the drinks too, and she doesn’t usually drink!
We used a bunch of pictures of my dad through the years to decorate as well as custom beer bottle labels. I brought my Instax mini Camera to capture some of the mustache shenanigans. I also made Chocolate Stout Cupcakes with cream cheese frosting adapted from this recipe. The wood rounds may look familiar from the Forest Friends Baby Shower!
