ABOUT PRIVATE EVENTS
Our Tap Room has three distinct spaces available for events of all occasions and sizes. We have hosted rehearsal dinners,
reunions, corporate events & meetings, birthday parties, showers, fundraisers and more. We take pride in hosting quality, unique events that you and your guests will remember for years to come.
We offer a variety of packages from appetizer stations to full buffet dinners with hand passed appetizers, custom desserts, and beer tasting packages. Special packages for lunches and meetings are also available.
OUR EVENT SPACES
Our Beer Hall is our large private space on the main floor of the Tap Room which features our impressive custom mural, a twelve tap bar, and private bathrooms. In good weather, there are three garage doors that open to a private enclosed patio on Ellicott Street. The room has full A/V capabilities including a wireless microphone, separate audio, and the ability to project to the 90" and 70" televisions in the room. For seated dinners, the Beer Hall accommodates up to 65 or 125+ for cocktail style parties. For larger seated events, special accommodations can be made - please inquire for more details. This room is ideal for rehearsal dinners to corporate events and everything in between.
For more informal parties, the Brewer's Lounge is our semi-private area located on the second floor of the Tap Room. The lounge features a fireplace seating area with leather couches and chairs, a custom shuffleboard table, two dart boards and a 65" television as well as direct access to the loft bar. This unique, interactive space is roped off for your group and accommodates up to 40 guests with limited seating at high top tables and couches.
On certain nights, the Brewer's Lounge can be combined with the loft bar and dining space to accommodate groups of up to 100 guests.
The Canal Room
Tucked behind the hustle and bustle of the loft bar and dining space is our private meeting and event room. The room accommodates 17 for board room meetings, 22 for a seated dinner, 30 for cocktail receptions and 30 in theater style seating. As a meeting space, the room features an 80" television which can be used for presentations as well as conference phone capabilities and wifi. As an event space, it's great for intimate receptions, small happy hours, corporate lunches and dinners, or wedding and baby showers.
*Please note: the second floor of the Tap Room [including the Brewer's Lounge and Canal Room] is not wheelchair accessible.
