What’s included when renting a brewery?

One of the main draws to hosting at a brewery is getting to see a behind-the-scenes look at the brewing or distilling equipment. When you get your first glimpse of all those knobs, dials, tubes and tanks, you may feel like you’ve just stepped into a mad scientist’s lab. Not to worry, though.

Plenty of breweries will have a staff member present for your event, and they’ll be happy to explain the fascinating process to you and your guests.

In addition to the brewing or distilling area itself, many breweries rent out tasting rooms or bars where guests can mingle and sample their amazing wares. The Downtown distillery’s tasting room features 18-foot ceilings and west-facing views of the Seattle waterside. All that gorgeous natural light makes the towering copper stills sparkle. It’s a warm, welcoming environment where you and up to 74 other guests can kick back and relax.

What kind of events can I host at a brewery?

Any kind of event where good drinks and an even better time are appropriate! You could host personal events like college graduations, birthdays, anniversaries, bachelor/ette parties, or even a wedding reception with flair. For business or corporate events, you could host company mixers, employee retreats, networking events, launch parties, happy hours, or anything else to give your employees a well-earned treat.

So long as all your guests are all over the legal drinking age, you can really be creative and stretch the limits of your imagination! Hosts love seeing the unique ways guests use their spaces, so feel free to think outside the box here. If you want to entertain guests that don’t drink alcohol or are under the legal drinking age, not to worry. Keep an eye out for breweries that specialize in non-alcoholic beverages, like this Kombucha brewery in San Diego. 

This 750 square foot lounge in the Sorrento Mesa neighborhood features a unique underwater theme with a splashy mural and industrial exposed venting. The hourly rental fee includes a bartender, who will serve up unlimited tastings of the brewery’s premium non-alcoholic kombucha. And if you’re craving a snack, the brewery can even arrange for a foodtruck to be present outside for your event. It’s a one-of-a-kind experience that the whole group can get in on!
