Congrats on the engagement! Enjoy this exciting time in your lives together!
We hope you'll keep Fat Hill Brewing in mind while you're planning your wedding and wedding-related events. We can host weddings/receptions, post-wedding 'survival' brunches, bridal showers, engagement parties - you name it! We also can provide awesome beer for your off-site wedding reception and our merch makes awesome bridal party gifts. See below for more details on all these!
Because we don't close down for private events, we book private events (like weddings, etc.) any time we're not open to the public (in general this includes Saturday mornings before noon, and Sunday - Tuesday all day). There is no booking fee for private events if your bar tab reaches $500. Please email email@example.com to ask questions or to reserve your date.
We think our brewery is a great place to get married or have your wedding reception. (In fact, FHB owners Jake and Molly tried it out this November!)
Although a little nontraditional, we think Sunday afternoon/evening would be a great time to get married and celebrate! FHB currently has table seating for 100, but if your party is larger we can work together with you to rent a few more tables/chairs. Our absolute max capacity is 140 due to fire code, including staff. We don't have food ourselves but we can recommend lots of great caterers. Set-up for your Sunday wedding would be the day-of, so consider going light on decorations (we think the beauty of our building speaks for itself) or doing just one big statement piece (see above "just married" balloons) that could be mostly made ahead of time and some sort of small accents on the tables. (We'd rather not have stuff attached to our walls.) Your photo shoot could be in the afternoon before your ceremony/reception. The afternoon light in the brewery is gorgeous.
If you want to really lean in to a craft-beer-wedding theme (ask Pinterest...this is a thing), may we also suggest:
- hops, wheat, or barley in bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages, or decor flowers
- bridal party gifts from our merch (pint glasses, totes, t-shirts, hoodies, etc.) (this will go towards your tab minimum!)
- your wedding cake/cupcakes/donuts etc. be made with our beer or other beer, food menu include items cooked with beer
- craft beer themed save-the-dates and/or invitations (Etsy right now is really into cutesy phrases like "love is brewing" "hoppily ever after" and "something old, something new, something borrowed, something brewed")
- use a site like Traveler's Joy to register for a craft beer themed honeymoon
Post-Wedding Sunday Morning Survivor Brunches
If you get married on a Saturday, why not have a brunch the day after and open presents at the brewery? Get an awesome caterer (we have several recommendations), open gifts, and send guests home with some crowlers if you'd like!
Bridal Showers or Couples Showers
The brewery would be a great spot for a Sunday morning/noon brunch traditional bridal shower or a couples shower on a Sunday afternoon would be really fun too. Get it catered or do pot luck and dig into your presents!
Instead of a big reception, throw a huge engagement party instead and then elope somewhere fabulous. You still get to celebrate with your friends and family but the pressure is way off. We recommend a fancy Sunday night soiree at FHB, with a small band (we have reccommendations if needed) and awesome catering.
Kegs for Off-site Weddings/Receptions
Having your wedding somewhere else but still need awesome beer? We can sell you all the kegs you need. If you have a very specific beer in mind, please contact us well in advance of your big day.
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and someone will get back to you within a day or so. We know planning a wedding can be pretty stressful at times...we just went through it ourselves, so we know what you're going through and will try to make it as easy as possible for you to get your plans in order! We'd love to hear your ideas for you big day and share some of our own. Congrats on the engagement!
