What type of wedding does your venue work best for?

Unconventional wedding for easy going couples. We don’t close our doors for private events, but for those willing to allow other regular guests in the facility, we are a very affordable option. We don’t charge a fee to reserve space for your group. You can choose your own food option. And you only pay for the beverages you consume. Plus: Wedding Pictures in front of a brewhouse or in our lager cellar look awesome!

Who do you recommend for bands at the venue?

We are very limited on what we can do for live music at our venue. Please check with events@riggsbeer.com

What else do you want couples to know about your venue?

If you are looking for a traditional, all-private wedding space for a wedding with white linens, plated dinner and dancing to a DJ all night long, we are not the right place for you. But, if you are looking for an affordable venue with a great outdoor space and a low-key atmosphere, Riggs Beer Company might be for you.
