Private Events

Host Your Next Event at the Brewery

First….. Thanks for thinking of us for hosting your event.

We make the brewery and visitor center available for private events pretty regularly.  We have worked with numerous charities, companies, and even folks for private parties.

What charities or non-profits  typically do is promote the fundraising event among their group, charge an admission (usually in the ballpark of $20) and then do raffles and drawings to raise additional funds.  You can cater the event, bring in your own food, or just order pizza.   We even have tables and chairs we can set up for you.

If you have never been to the brewery, feel free to stop by and to see if the space will work for you.

We have a maximum capacity of about 280 people.

What people love is that uniqueness of the space, and how easy our team makes it to host an event.
