Can we bring food? Yes! We’d love it if you brought food in!  All food must be provided by a licensed caterer or be pre-packaged and supplied by a licensed restaurant or producer/grocery store arriving in its original packaging.  Sorry Aunt Mary, no homemade jello salad allowed.

We are happy to provide our curated list of reputable caterers and food trucks that provide high-quality service and use local resources. The caterers on the list have all applicable licenses and permits on file annually with Bent Paddle Brewing Co. and know and understand our facility and rules; while we have preferred vendors, but we are also open to exploring alternate options with you!
