The Taproom

Taproom Details

Our main facility features a large bar and floor-to-ceiling windows with views of our state-of-the-art brewing equipment. The Facility Rental Fee includes rental of the Taproom and Patio, tables and chairs (seating for 50), AV (screen and projector, wireless mic and iPod connector for your playlist) and ample parking for meeting and parties up to 4 hours.  This is not just a space within our bar; it is the bar (we can’t be open to the public and rent this space to you).  If you are just looking for a private area during these public hours, please see the Chautauqua or the Gemütlichkeit Room.  This is an easy-breezy space with little decorating or preparation necessary.  Typical basic pricing involves:

  • Facility Rental Fee (for 4 hours in the space):  starting at $750
  • Service Fees (minimum 2 bartenders): $20 per hour per bartender for the length of the party, plus one hour each for set-up and clean-up
  • Beer (upon consumption: by the glass and as you order it):  $5 to $6 a glass/$1.75 to $3 a taster (small size); We also have drink packages available
  • Food:  Up to you (please see below)

We have an extensive collection of records for music or you can hook up a laptop/iPod to our surround-sound speaker and there is seating for 50 with room for 100+ for a standing reception.  However, you are welcome to bring in wine, book bands, add additional rentals and more (see below).

Beer and Wine

The Taproom has up to 10 beers on tap, including our year round, seasonal and specialty beers, though, availability depends on the season.  We can charge for beer upon consumption or offer drink packages. You are also welcome to bring in wine for our bartenders to pour or have a licensed caterer supply and pour wine and/or liquor. In either of those cases, corkage fees do apply.

Food

For all rental spaces, you are welcome to bring in home-made items, use your own caterer with advanced approval (and no added fees!), or use a caterer from our extensive list of recommended vendors and food trucks.  If coordinating your own food, please note: we do not have a kitchen area, prep areas or refrigeration storage (caterer must be self-sufficient).  We can also coordinate delicious and all-inclusive in-house menus to fit any budget if you would like to be completely hands off.  Want to host your own exclusive beer pairing dinner for you guests? We can do that too!

Service

We will provide bartenders for your event (number depends on the size of the party and set up needs, minimum of two). We opt for an hourly Service Fee of $20/hr for each bartender for the length of your event plus time for set-up and clean-up (typically 1 hour each)*.  We are happy to schedule staff according to your needs if more time is needed for decorating, vendor load-ins, etc.  There must be a WISEACRE staff member scheduled for your event anytime any member of your party is on-site for safety of all parties.

Rentals, Flowers and More

We can coordinate any rental needs through our preferred vendor including any additional tables, chairs and tents of all sizes (great if wanting additional capacity outside and there is poor weather in the forecast).  We can also recommend bands, photographers, florists, photo-booths and more.

Tours, Tastings and Team Building

We now offer tours of our state of the art brewing facility, tastings with our expert staff or fun activities, like beer trivia and more that can be custom fit for your group. Tours will depend on the brew schedule but are available for an additional cost during most times we are closed to the public.  All are a great way to show your guests a fantastic time or serve as team building for corporate events.  Pricing upon request.  

Interested in booking?

Please note: this is NOT FOR RESERVING TABLES in the Taproom; it is for the rental of the entire space (the Taproom is our main bar, we cannot rent it to you and still be open to the public).   If joining us during public Taproom hours, our community tables are first, come first serve.  If you would like your own space for a small private party, the Gemütlichkeit Room is a fantastic choice.
