Yeah I mean that's really the best thing to say in the situation... besides dump it, but if it doesn't taste horrible then drinking it is in order IMHO. You can always just give it away to people who don't really know beer that well and they probably will be none the wiser.

Would you have some different advice cagey?

I tried it, and it tastes great. I'm going to give it another few days, then off to a fridge for a few months until it's drinking time.

And if the infection did make it to a few bottles: oh well, it's free beer at a wedding rehearsal dinner, dump it and go grab another (there'll be Hefe, Cider, Kolsch, Amber, and IPA available) and go back to the ice cream sundae bar.

"if there are lumps in your beer, just strain them through your teeth, but don't spit it out just anywhere....this is a freeking wedding!"
