Wedding season is starting to wind down and if you’re like me, your Facebook feed is a wall of wedding ceremony/reception pics. Unfortunately, most of these weddings are going to end up the same way (woah reader, I’m not talking about divorces, you need to stop being so cynical), with a party at a hotel. Now don’t get me wrong, a lot of great parties have happened at a hotel. However, if you’re looking for a more unique venue for your big day, a Brewery Wedding at Monday Night Brewing is an excellent option.

Cost is always going to be relevant to picking a wedding reception venue. Lucky for you, the cost to rent out Monday Night’s awesome Brewery won’t break the bank. Our prices are a steal when compared with other high-quality venues.

Brewery Wedding: Little Perks for your Big Day

  • Games: If your big day includes kids or kids at heart, the Brewery is ready for that. We have custom made cornhole sets and a shuffleboard table to keep guests of all ages entertained.
  • Schwag: Private Event packages include a Monday Night Brewing glass for all guests to take home. You can even get custom glasses made and add a personal touch like Steph and Jeff did.
  • Engaging Experiences: Getting folks engaged with the venue will bring an added entertainment value for your guests. Our experienced events staff will be able to tell your guests all about the brewery’s history and beers.

Wide Open Spaces

Of course, the most important aspect of any wedding/reception venue is the space itself. The Monday Night Brewery has an open floor plan with an industrial aesthetic. This design is great for anyone seeking a more contemporary vibe for their wedding. The Open floor plan also lends itself to redecoration.

Being in a crowded room isn’t everyone’s jam. At Monday Night, you won’t be crammed into one room the whole evening. Most folks choose to make the tasting room the main attraction and use the outdoor patio as an area to chillout and lounge. You’ll also have the opportunity to check out the production area on a brewery tour.

“All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy” — English Proverb

Most folks need to be challenged at work to feel fulfilled. That said, being challenged is hard. Doing difficult things all the time can stress you out. If your colleagues are bringing their A-game everyday, then they’ll appreciate an opportunity to bring more play to the office. This is where outside-the-office corporate events can be a lifesaver, and there isn’t a better corporate event location than a craft brewery.

If creating a fun and excited corporate culture is one of your company’s goals, mixing up your routines is a must. A change of venue can bring a lot of new energy and engagement to recurring corporate events such as:

  • staff meetings
  • re-training
  • continued education

At Monday Night Brewing, our space has everything you need for a productive event. We’ve got a projector for presentations or videos, an excellent sound system (we regularly host musical acts), and ample space for a large group.

Happyyyyyyyyy [hours are the best] — Pharrell

Sometimes the best way to facilitate a more interconnected office environment is to get your employees connecting with each other after business hours. Monday Night regularly hosts corporate happy hours for all sorts of businesses. Many companies choose to get creative with their happy hours. One company decided to put on a “murder mystery” happy-hour where they brought in a local theatre group to put on a show while they enjoyed some MNB brews. Google put on an Oktoberfest  happy hour complete with a full-on polka band.

Everybody likes recognition. Everybody loves craft beer! Give your customers and colleagues the best of both worlds by hosting customer appreciation events or employee award nights at a brewery. Monday Night has cornhole sets and a custom made shuffleboard table to take the fun factor up another notch.

America’s palate is changing. Everyday, more folks are choosing artfully crafted beers that complement their food and expand their taste horizons. Experts are projecting this trend will continue. A crafty bar-owner or restaurateur can capitalize on the craft beer phenomena and increase beer sales with a strong craft beer list. This post will explain how you can craft [oh I’m on a roll now] a craft beer list that will increase beer sales and turn your local beer aficionados into your regulars.

The India Pale Ale is the quintessential craft beer in the last few years. Unfortunately, too many bars seem to think craft beer drinkers always want IPAs because they sell the most. Folks who choose craft beer want to have choices!

Make room for new beers from local breweries.

Offering new and/or small-batch beers shows that you’re in tune with the local craft community and that you’re committed to giving your customers a novel experience. Monitor how quickly it takes you to go through a keg – your customers speak with their wallets, so be sure to reorder the local beers that do well.

Pick beers that match the climate and season.

Increase Beer Sales with warming dark beers in the winter

Increase beer sales with refreshing beers in the summerHot summer days get most craft beer drinkers thirsting for lighter, straw-gold colored beers and fruit-citrus flavors. These characteristics are found commonly in wheat beers such as German weizenbier (including hefeweizen) and Belgian witbier.

Cold winter nights call for dark beers such as stouts, porters, and scotch ales for many. These dark beers are generally higher ABV and contain sweet and smoky flavors that people associate with warmth. They’re perfect when your beer blanket could use an extra layer!

Pick beers that complement the food being served.

Creativity is generally a good thing in craft beer. Subsequently, craft beers can vary substantially within the same style. This makes using a generic beer-food pairing guide difficult for crafts. Breweries such as Bell’s Brewery Inc., Shipyard Brewing Co., Sierra Nevada Brewing Co., and Monday Night Brewing understand that struggle.

For instance, at Monday Night Brewing, we recognize that Fu Manbrew is no ordinary Belgian-style wit. We throw a smidge of ginger into Fu Manbrew which imparts subtle ginger aroma and flavor. Like most Witbiers, Fu Manbrew pairs excellently with fish and citrus fruits. Unlike most Witbiers, Fu Manbrew also pairs fantastically with salads and spicy foods. Monday Night, the previously mentioned breweries, and many others recognize that each beer has its own unique characteristics and shedding light on those variations will help everyone make most of their dining experiences.

Be on the lookout for the next post in this series. We’ll be discussing how to balance mainstream and craft beers to increase beer sales and profits for your bar or restaurant.
