Special Event FAQs & Event Form
Q: Can I reserve tables for my large party?
A: Reservations for up to 30 people in the taproom may be arranged by filling out the form below. Reservations are considered on a first come, first served basis and are available every day of the week except Saturday (also, please note that we are closed Mondays during colder months). Guests may request to book tables on the patio or inside the taproom, and in the event of inclement weather, we will make every effort to accommodate your party indoors. We ask that the party arrive within 15 minutes of the agreed-upon reservation time or the tables will be released.
Q: What if my group is larger than 30 people?
A: With the recent purchase of our building and plans for facility expansion, we are not able to accommodate private events and parties larger than 30 at this time.
Q: What type of tabs can I offer my guests?
A: Guests may request one of the following tab options: Open Bar, Limited Open Bar, Drink Ticket, Pay-As-You-Go. The desired type of tab must be communicated to our event coordinator prior to the event. Please note that the Open Bar, Limited Open Bar, and Drink Ticket tab options are subject to a 20% automatic gratuity. Tab descriptions are as follows:
- Open Bar – Host is responsible for entire bar tab.
- Limited Open Bar – Host is responsible for the bar tab up to a predetermined amount or for a specified period of time.
- Drink Tickets – Host prepays for tickets of predetermined value and distributes them to the guests.
- Pay As You Go – Guests are responsible for their own tabs.
Q: Can I bring in outside alcohol to my event?
A: Due to ABC regulations, we cannot permit any outside alcohol at the brewery (cider, wine, spirits, etc.). Guests are welcome to bring non-alcoholic beverages to serve at their event.
Q: Can I serve outside food for my taproom reservation?
A: Absolutely. We do not have a commercial kitchen at Ardent, so we welcome guests to bring in outside food. We do require that our event coordinator approve the caterer or vendor in advance.
Q: Can I bring decorations for my taproom reservation?
A: Outside decor, within reason, is permitted, but must be approved by our event coordinator.
Q: Can I have live music or book my band to play at Ardent?
A: Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate live music at the brewery.
Q: How far in advance do I need to book my taproom reservation?
A: Taproom reservations are booked on a first come, first served basis. The earlier you inquire and are able to begin planning, the better, as demand and availability can fluctuate, especially during the holiday season.
