Rental Spaces

Q: How do I get started?

A: Please look over our Private Events webpage for information on our location options and guest capacity. Once you have an idea of which location(s) are of interest to you and a date(s), please click on the "Inquire Now" link at the top of that page. Then fill out your information so that we can give you a quick response that fully meets your needs. 

Q: How long should it take for someone to get back with me?

A: Our Event Coordinator is in office Wednesday-Sunday and should get back to you within 24 hours or less. If placing a request Monday-Tuesday, please expect a response within 48 hours. If it has been more than 48 hours, please contact events@b52brewing.com to check the status of your request. 

Q: Where should I expect to get a response from? 

A: Our Event Coordinator will first attempt to reach out via email from events@b52brewing.com (Shells Burkett), so please keep an eye out. 

Q: How does this work overall?

A: Once we've received your inquiry, we will send over via email the full details and pricing on your requested date and location. Most rental locations require both a rental location fee and bar tab minimum along with a set gratuity. Once guest has agreed to a set date/location based on pricing information, we will send over an official Quote. Once guest approves the quote, a payment link will be sent over in a separate email via Stripe, our processing system, for the Deposit. Once the Deposit is made, your reservation is officially booked.

Q: What is the Deposit?

A: The Deposit is 50% of the rental location fee and is due immediately in order to reserve your date/location.

Q: What is the Bar Tab Minimum?

A: Some rental locations require not only a rental location fee, but also a Bar Tab Minimum. This is to be paid in full at the end of the event along with the Gratuity. 

Q: How does the Bar Tab Minimum works?

A: At the beginning of the event, a credit card is required to start the tab. Our staff will keep track of all drinks your guests order. At the end of the event, if you haven't met the minimum, we will increase your tab to meet it. If you go over the minimum, we will charge you for that amount. The drink tab will be closed with the credit card on file with the set Gratuity. 

Q: Do you all do drink tickets?

A: If requested, we can provide drink tickets to help split up the drinks being given out; for example, if you want to set a certain number of drinks per person. Drink tickets are $6 each and can be used on any of our beers. 2 tickets are required for wine and flights. The Event Coordinator must be notified in advance. 

Q: Can the Bar Tab Minimum be split among the guests instead of being on a single card holder?

A: If requested, we can allow guests of the event to pay for their own drinks, and that money will go towards the Bar Tab Minimum. The Event Coordinator must be notified in advance, and event host is required to let guests know that all tabs will be closed out at a set gratuity. Any leftover amount of the Bar Tab Minimum not met, will be paid by the event host. 

Q: Can I take home packaged beer if I don't meet my Bar Tab Minimum?

A: Unfortunately, we do not allow the any leftover Bar Tab Minimum to be made up with to go/packaged beer. 

Q: What is the Gratuity for Private Events?

A: Our Gratuity rate is a required 20% of the final bar tab, but you are always welcome to add more. This is paid for at the end of the event.

Q: What is the Final Payment and when is it due?

A: The Final Payment is the other 50% of the rental location fee. It is due no later than 7 days before the event and will be sent over via Stripe. It is nonrefundable. 

Q: What are your cancellation policies?

A: The Deposit is fully refundable for up to 60 days before the event. Within 60 days, the Deposit is only half refundable. The Final Payment is nonrefundable.

Q: What are the typical rental hours, can they change, and is it cheaper if I ask for a shorter time span?

A: Our rental hours for Wednesday through Friday are 5-10pm, for Saturday are 12-5pm or 5-10pm, and for Sunday are 3-8pm. Any additional hours will be an additional charge, and you will not get a discounted price for shortening the length of your party. (We also do Full Taproom rentals Mondays & Tuesdays and during the day when we are closed for Corporate events.)

Q: What else do y'all have to drink besides beer?

A: Besides beer, we also have several choices of both red and white wine, cider, mead, soda, bottled water, house made lemonade, and rootbeer, all of which goes towards your Bar Tab Minimum. If requested, we can also provide champagne.
