Private Events at Hoops Brewing
At Hoops Brewing, we love a good party. And we want you to have a good party in our family-friendly, expansive hall among massive Douglas Fir beams and views of the working brewhouse. Birthday celebrations, showers, groom’s dinners, receptions, work think-tanks, holiday gatherings, post-conference mixers…we’ve got you.
We are a wide open, 8,000 square foot, 250 seat beer hall, with 4 giant community tables in front of the bar and smaller, moveable tables in the west beer hall section. The west beer hall, with window views of the William A. Irvin ore boat, can seat over 100 people with plenty more room for standing and mingling. Find out more.
For small parties and reservations we will work with you on a designated minimum in sales. These charges typically apply to parties over 40 people on a Thursday, Friday & Saturday. Minimums are met through beer purchases whether it’s a group and/or individual tabs, merchandise, crowlers, gift certificates, etc. In other words, if you don’t drink up your minimum, you can make up the difference with other great stuff. Tax does not count toward your minimum, but tips do. Speaking of tips, 20% gratuity is appreciated if you feel your server knocked it out of the park.
For larger parties wishing to reserve the west beer hall for 5-hour blocks, please call or email us with your details, knowing your estimated party size is always helpful.
Brewery & Beer
We are a brewery, we specialize in producing tasty beer. It’s all we do and we do it well. If you fancy a wine or spirit, we have a unique partnership with The Ripple adjacent to the community tables, separated by a half-wall. Our liquor licenses are also unique so you need to consume your drink on the side where you purchased it. Mixed company? No problem, you can meet at the rail along the half-wall and still mingle.
If you’re looking to feast at your gathering, the Canal Park area has a plethora of restaurants to choose from. Options include American, Mexican, Asian, Italian, BBQ and beyond. See a partial list here. If you need help finding the right caterer or vendor we can help with suggestions from food to florists.
If you would like to add tours to your event we can take groups, numbering around 15, through the brewhouse for $10 an individual (includes 3 tasters.) Available weeknights after 6 p.m. or anytime on weekends.
We don’t mind if you want to make your event more festive, decorations are welcome. You are responsible for all set-up, breakdown and clean-up, as well as any damages incurred to Hoops property.
Want a bit of personal touch for your event? Have a favorite beer style? We’d be happy to create a beer just for your event and include it on our tap line-up for your guests. With two weeks notice you can work with our brewer to specialize a keg. Size will be appropriate for the number of guests in your party. Ask about pricing.
Audio & Visual:
We have three 36″ t.v.s that can be utilized through your laptop for presentation purposes or slideshows. Fancy a certain music genre? You can also tap into our sound system or request your favorites.
