Breweries as popular event spaces is a trend that’s here to stay. After all, what’s not to love? With delicious and unique drinks, a laid-back atmosphere, and dramatic spaces, breweries are the ideal setting for an event as major as a wedding and as simple as a team bonding spot.
If you’re looking for the best breweries in New England for your private event, we’ve got you covered with options ranging from waterfront venues to historical hotspots. Here are our four favorite options:
Tucked away in Branford, Conn., along the banks of the Branford River is Stony Creek Brewery. This brewery has stunning indoor and outdoor space and can accommodate 200 seated guests. Whether you are hosting a wedding or smaller party or corporate event, this brewery is a crowd-pleaser with around a dozen beers on tap plus cocktails, poptails (alcohol-infused freezer pops), and wine.
Even better they have an incredible staff and the shoreline’s best sunset. Stony Creek truly has something for everyone.
Years before the craft beer craze, there was Cambridge Brewing Company. Affectionately known as CBC, this beloved brewery sits in a refurbished mill building and is incredibly comfortable with high ceilings, exposed brick, and even a sunny patio.
CBC’s beer menu has a little bit of everything from boozy IPAs to crushable shandys. Their food has pub favorites including beer-battered fish and chips and pickle-brined fried hot chicken. With a back room, dining room, and ample bar, the space can accommodate corporate gatherings, parties, or fundraisers for 20 to 100 guests.
Hog River Brewing is housed inside a turn-of-the-century tire factory in Hartford, Conn. A quirky and laid-back space, Hog River Brewing’s Stave Room can host 40 seated or 70 standing guests for a unique celebration or fundraiser.
Old machinery and a regularly updated tap list provide a unique and memorable experience for your guests whether they decide to sip on a refreshing Warehouse Pilsner, a delicate Peels & Blossoms Wit with Lemon Peel & Chamomile, or an enchanting Gobblefunk Boysenberry Sour.
What started as the nocturnal hobby of a trio of friends in Somerville, Mass., has grown into Boston’s most popular brewery. With a location in Everett and Lovejoy Wharf, options abound for your private events, work events, or even wedding receptions.
Guests will likely already know and love Night Shift’s brews but they also have a rotating mix of limited released beers for those looking to try something new.
