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 45), AV (screen and projector, wireless mic and iPod connector for your playlist) and ample parking for meeting and parties lasting 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.Here are the key details to consider for a Taproom rental:

  • Facility Rental Fee:  Ranging from $750 – $2,000 for a 4 hour event. Please note that we do not currently offer Taproom buyouts on Thursday – Friday nights or anytime after 1 PM on Saturday because we prefer to remain accessible to our regular customers during those times.
  • 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: Our beers range in price from $5 – $6 per glass or $1.75 – $3.00 per taster.
  • 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 typically charge for beer upon consumption (by the pint or 7 oz. taster), but can also offer drink tickets or drink packages upon request. 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

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 that we do not have a kitchen area, prep areas or refrigeration storage and food must be delivered no more than an hour in advance. 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, minimum of two). 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 staff according to your needs, but please note that 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 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 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.

Interested in booking?

Please note that we do not take individual table reservations in the Taproom and our community tables are all first come, first served. A Taproom rental is a rental of the entire space; we cannot rent it to you and still be open to the public. If you would like your own space for a small private party, the Gemütlichkeit Room is a fantastic choice.

Fill out the form below and we’ll get back to you to set up your booking. Please make sure to note the room you are requesting in the “Description of Event” space.
