private events

There is no greater place for bringing people together than a brewery. It’s a fact. Whether you’re throwing an office party, birthday party, retirement, rehearsal dinner, and so on. Smartmouth is the go-to spot for your next get-together.

Beginning in December 2017 we will have two locations to offer for events.

NORFOLK TASTING ROOM

While groups are certainly welcome to come during regular tasting room hours, we have a hard time reserving tables or space unless you arrive right when we first open. We can offer groups the ability to host private events before or after our public hours and (most) anytime on Mondays and Tuesdays. Our space rental varies depending on the day/night of the week and the number of people you plan to host. We can accommodate up to 120 guests depending on the table/chair arrangement and the use of outdoor deck and space. Depending on the number of people, we will consider closing the tasting room for your event.

VIRGINIA BEACH PILOT HOUSE

Our new space has the ability to offer private events in a dedicated space while we are open to the public. Our space rental varies depending on the day/night of the week and the number of people you plan to host. We can accommodate groups of any size up to 450 guests.

We only have an ABC license to serve beer and beers are charged at market price. If you wish to serve wine, you must obtain an ABC banquet event license. It takes about 3 weeks and costs $55. We do sell a variety of sodas and bottled water and we have a water fountain with cups. You are welcome to bring a cooler of non-alcoholic beverages. We can provide tickets for you to distribute if you wish to limit your bar tab. Our staff will pour all beers, set up and clean up for your event.

We are kid-friendly (and pet-friendly outside). We do not serve food, but we can provide a list of recommended caterers and food trucks, or you may use your own. For music, we offer Pandora music service for you to select a station. You can also provide live music. The Pilot House has a projector and screen that can be rented for a small fee.

Please complete the form below with the details of your event, including a requested date/time, number of people you plan to have and desired location so that we can provide you with an exact quote.
