Can I bring outside alcohol to a private event?

No outside alcohol. Period. We can provide non-alcoholic beverages for a fee or they can be brought in by yourself for no extra cost.  Wine may be available to purchase under certain circumstances. Feel free to ask us about it if you'd like wine too! 

Can I bring my own food or book an outside food vendor?

You are allowed to bring in ready-to-eat food prepared off site. Food trucks or pop-ups are subject to Smog City approval. We regularly have food trucks at the brewery taproom Thursday-Sunday, please check for availability before booking an outside vendor.  A list of approved food trucks available for private booking can be provided upon request.

Are you family friendly?

Absolutely! We welcome guests of all ages provided they are accompanied by a parent/guardian?

Are pets allowed at your locations?

Well behaved pets kept on leash close to their owner are allowed.

Do you provide any games or activities?

We have fun outdoor games like cornhole and giant Jenga available upon request.

Can my guests pay on separate tabs?

All beverage orders must be applied to the group tab set up for the event to ensure accurate accounting of your tab against pre-determined beverage minimum. If guests wish to continue drinking after your event has concluded, they may open their own tab, but this will not count towards the overall group tab. At the end of your event, you may split the payment of the group tab a maximum of 4 ways.

Do you serve alcoholic beverages other than beer?

In some cases, a wine selection is available upon request. Please check with Smog City for restrictions around serving wine at events. We do not serve alternatives like hard liquor, ciders, or hard seltzers.

Can I bring my own decorations?

You can bring decorations for your event provided that you do not use any destructive or hazardous items or fasteners. This means no nails, screws, bolts, glue, thumb tacks, pins, duct tape, paint, ink, confetti, glitter, or pyrotechnics. Approved fasteners are string or cord, zip ties, twist ties, masking/painter's tape, 3M contact strips. You are responsible for cleanup of all items at the conclusion of your event. You will be responsible for the cost of repairing any damage or cleaning of our facilities by your decorations or the actions of you and your guests.

What is the cost of booking an event?

Upfront cost is a $100-$200 booking fee. This amount is paid when you sign your event contract agreement and ensures that your desired space is reserved for your party's use on the day you choose. 

In addition to the booking fee, Smog City will establish a beverage minimum for your event. This cost is variable and based on several factors: party size, time of day, duration, day of the week, and amenities/services chosen. Your party will be responsible for meeting or exceeding the pre-determined minimum amount. If your group tab falls under the minimum amount, you will still be charged the full minimum amount + 20% gratuity.
