Frequently asked questions

Can I host an event at Mighty Squirrel?

We do offer a part of our taproom as special event space as well as patio space. Generally speaking, the area is best for groups of 35 or more and can accommodate up to 200.  


How much is it to host an event at your taproom?

The rates for the special event taproom booking depends on the day, the timing (day vs. evening) and the size of your party.  While there is no fee for the space, there is a minimum spend that you would be charged for the booked hours. Naturally, the daytime bookings during Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday have lowest minimums, while evenings on Thursdays- Fridays are the more expensive.  

When can I host my event?

At this time, we are only able to accommodate weekend events on Saturday between the the hours of 11am-1pm due to the high volume at the taproom and Sunday we do not book events.

Can I bring my own growler to fill?

We do not do growler fills, but all of our beer to go is available in 4 packs of 16oz cans.  A traditional 64oz growler is the same amount as a 4 pack of 16oz cans, but the liquid stays fresher for longer. 

Just some other things to keep in mind...

Our special event area is part of an open space of the taproom floor. Although, we can section off the area to become private, will not be able to control the noise level. After sunset we do dim down our lights, and the noise level increase due to the number of people.
