Staraya & Clay’s Wedding: Lyons Farmette – 9/5/2013
This weekend the Hippie Limo learned that families that brew together tend to marry into one another during Staraya and Clay’s wedding at the Lyons Farmette. Clay – master brewer, co owner, vice president, and glorified janitor at Sun King Brewing in Indianapolis, IN – contacted us in February about being the couple’s getaway ride from their wedding. Given Clay’s role in producing and evolving the sacred fermentation, how could I refuse?
Staraya and Clay had spent a good part of their early history traveling together to concerts in what they referred to as their “Metal Bus” – a well-worn and rusty split-window Kombi that had served them well. For their wedding the couple agreed that they should take things up a notch and have our Samba be the ride to kick off their honeymoon. Since most of the couple’s friends and family had equally fond and long histories with vintage VWs (not to mention also having roots in brewing, as evidenced by the presence of key members of the Oskar Blues Brewery family at the reception), Clay asked me if I could show up a little extra early to allow everyone to have some quality time exploring our WayBack Machine.
When I arrived I was asked to park on a grassy space alongside the reception tent. The lights from French Provincial lamps and several dozen votive candles reflected off of the Hippie Limo’s finish as guest after guest wandered our way in the moonlight to admire the couple’s getaway ride and pose for photos. As larger, modern tour buses began arriving and departing with the bulk of Staraya and Clays guests, the lucky couple boarded the Hippie Limo for a more vintage traveling experience to their hotel in Boulder.
Our very best wishes to the lucky couple. May their marriage grow richer and more complex along with their brews!
