What is the room rental fee?
***Please note when reserving the room, the fee is calculated into the final total. If you choose Hosted Bar Tab or Cash Bar, you will only be paying the room rental fee. An estimated guest count is EXTREMELY important when booking your reservation. Why?

What happens if your guest count increases prior to your event? Please notify Doug, as soon as possible (at least 2wk prior to your event) so we can obtain staff for your event.

Do you offer any food?

Pre-purchased Dots Pretzels will be ready for your event in 1lb bags. We do not offer any bowls, utensils or napkins at the brewery. Please note these pretzels are HIGHLY addictive! Your guests will LOVE them!
Customers are allowed to cater in food, arrange a food truck for their event or bring in their own food. We ask that since you are allowed to bring in your own food, you do not bring in any beverages. All beverages must be purchased at the brewery.
Need some recommendations for food or entertainment? Please click the Vendor List below to obtain the contact information of vendors that have provided their services at our brewery before. Our brewery does NOT receive any compensation from these vendors. They are simply vendors our customers have contacted for food and entertainment that have provided excellent services for our guests. Please note the food trucks listed may even make the food on the truck and set the food up in your event room.
