The Chautauqua

Chautauqua

Our outdoor Chautauqua pavilion features an arbor, stage, and patio lights. It is stunning as an open-air pavilion in the spring and fall, but it can also be booked year-round as it can accommodate a custom 30’x60’ tent. The Facility Rental Fee includes parties up to 4 hours, 6 picnic tables, and a variety of barrel high-tops and moveable benches. This is a wonderful space as-is for a casual standing reception but works well as a blank canvas to make it truly your own. Here are the key details to consider for a Chautauqua rental:

  • Facility Rental Fee (for 4 hours in the space): Ranging from $750 – $1,500 for a 4 hour event.
  • Service Fees: $20 per hour per bartender for the length of the party, plus one hour each for set-up and clean-up; parties with rentals or outside decorations may require a longer set-up/clean-up time.
  • Beer: Our beers range in price from $5 – $6 per glass or $1.75 – $3.00 per taster. We can also provide drink tickets or create custom drink packages on request.
  • Food: We’re flexible! (See below)
  • Tent:  Tent rental is optional, but please note that events are rain or shine. If a tent rental is desired, we will coordinate it through our preferred vendor. The basic structure (ceiling, no walls) is approximately $1,900 with set up and delivery fees. Additional tent amenities (tent walls, fans, space heaters) can be priced upon request.
  • Additional Rentals:  We are happy to help coordinate rentals of tables, chairs, linens, and other decor through our preferred vendor, but you are also welcome to bring in your own items or coordinate rentals independently. However you choose to proceed, please note that all outside items must be delivered and picked up the day of the event during pre-scheduled load-in times.

Beer and Wine

For all spaces, we typically charge beer upon consumption (by the pint or 7 oz. taster), but can also offer drink tickets or drink packages upon request. You are welcome to have one master tab or individual checks with advanced notice. Our bartenders will pour 2-4 different beers (number depends on the size of your party) in the space from our one of our portable draft systems for convenient access.  If you would like to provide wine for your event, our bartenders are able to pour it for a $15 per bottle corkage fee (capped at $350).

Food

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 you’d prefer to be more hands off, we can also coordinate delicious in-house menus to fit any budget.

Service

We will provide bartenders for your event (number depends on the size of the party and set-up needs). We opt for an hourly Service Fee of $20 per bartender per hour for the length of your event plus a minimum of 1 hour each for set-up and clean-up. We are happy to schedule according to your needs. All event related activities (vendor load-ins, decorating, etc.) must be scheduled in advance with a WISEACRE bartender in attendance at this same Service Fee rate.

Rentals, Flowers and More

We can coordinate any rental needs through our preferred vendor, including any additional tables, chairs, and tents of all sizes. We can also coordinate flowers, bands, and photo booths to make it a fantastic event!

Tent

The space is an outdoor venue and could require protection from the elements.  We are happy to coordinate a beautiful 12’ custom built tent through our preferred vendor.  The tent is an additional expense and should be kept in mind when considering a budget for the event (events are rain or shine).

Tours, Tastings and Team Building

We can offer tours of our state of the art brewing facility, tastings with our expert staff and fun activities (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. Want to host your own exclusive beer pairing dinner for you guests? We can do that too! Pricing upon request.
