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 At least 8 weeks prior to your event, please email email@example.com with a copy of your banquet permit and the hours you would like to have our approved licensed alcohol servers to serve at your event.
We require 2 of our approved licensed alcohol servers to serve all alcohol at every event at Maplehurst Farm. (3 bartenders will be required for groups with more than 225 guests) Each server will arrive 30 minutes prior to the ceremony start time to begin paid bar prep. The fee is $35/hour for a total cost of $70/hour for 2 bartenders, or $105/hour for 3 bartenders, plus tip jar. (If you don’t’ want the servers to use a tip jar, you will need to add $100 extra to each of their wages.) The bar shift fee is due at least 8 weeks prior to an event date. 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.
