We allow champagne, beer and wine to be served at our venue. (Hard alcohol is not allowed.) All drinks and ice must be provided by the couple, bartenders are not responsible for bringing these items. If you plan to serve alcohol at your event, please obtain a banquet permit at any liquor store or by using the following link to purchase one online http://liq.wa.gov/licensing/banquet-permits
We require 2 of our approved licensed alcohol servers to serve all alcohol at every event at Maplehurst Farm. Each server charges $35/hour for a total cost of $70/hour plus tips for both servers. (Please be prepared to pay the servers with cash or check on your event date, thank you.) The bartending shift must begin 30 minutes prior to the time you would like them to begin service so they have time to prep. Please make sure to place your drinks on ice at least 1 hour prior to the bartenders’ arrival. Alcohol will not be served prior to the servers’ arrival or after the servers’ departure, so please plan to schedule them for the entire time you would like alcohol served to your guests during your event.
At least 8 weeks prior to your event, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy of your banquet permit and the hours you would like to have 2 of our approved licensed alcohol servers to serve at your event.
