Meeting professionals are invited to get crafty when planning their next special event in Anaheim. Orange County’s craft beer capital is ready to roll out the red carpet with more than a dozen tap rooms that offer a refreshing change of scenery along with award-winning brews. Discover four creative ways to add excitement to your next special event or meeting at one of Anaheim’s many breweries.
The same features that make breweries a great place to hang—like flights of quality beer, a laid-back atmosphere and ample seating at communal tables—lend themselves to hosting organized events. Many breweries, large or small, allow for full venue buyouts that guarantee both privacy and excellent service from knowledgeable tap-tenders. Among the Anaheim breweries offering that option to meeting professionals is Towne Park Brew, a 20,000-square-foot facility that can host up to 100 individuals for parties with flexible options such as live music, catering and up to 16 different pours of beer based on availability.
Kick up the Flavor
Anaheim breweries are well-known for welcoming food trucks serving up nearly any flavor that strikes your fancy. Bottle Logic, Bruery Terreux and Noble Ale Works are among those that have solid relationships with food truck purveyors, inviting them to feed hungry patrons every day of the week.
Get Your Game On
Bring some lighthearted fun into your event by taking advantage of on-site bar games at breweries that range from traditional darts to giant Jenga sets, table tennis and more. Incorporate games as icebreakers to get attendees mingling and keep them entertained. Backstreet Brewery’s patio lends itself well to cornhole tournaments, while Unsung serves up every brew with a side of fun. Unsung Brewing Co., in the MAKE building, offers access to a wall of comic books—keeping in line with its superhero theme—as well as board games that will stimulate conversation. The best part? Each game can be played with a taster glass in hand.
Bring the Party Outdoors
In Orange County, year-round sunshine makes every day a great one to spend outdoors. Breweries are more than happy to provide opportunities for visitors to catch a few rays, building incredible open-air spaces perfect for hosting groups. Bruery Terreux, for example, brings its industrial vibe outside with plenty of communal tables under a large awning. Down the road, Golden Road’s beer garden features lawn games galore, a sand pit with lounge chairs and hammocks and even an outdoor bar.
Whether you’re planning an intimate mixer or large group function, there’s a brewery to fit your needs in Anaheim. Learn more about local breweries and hosting an event at visitanaheim.org.
