The Great Room

The largest of the three event rooms is our Great Room, which can accommodate up to 160 guests seated or 200 guests standing. Features include cathedral ceilings, hardwood floors, exposed brick walls, views overlooking Franklin Street, and an 11' projection screen and projector.

The Great Room is ideal for wedding ceremonies, rehearsal dinners, large-scale galas and banquets, or even daytime meetings, luncheons and conferences. The vaulted ceilings are lined with state-of-the-art soundboarding, making the room acoustically perfect. With direct access to the built-in bar, lobby, and private restrooms, your guests will have every convenience at their fingertips during your event.


The Tank Room

The Tank Room is the perfect spot for your next intimate dinner. This room can accommodate up to 30 guests seated, or 50 guests standing. Features include hardwood floors, in-room brewery tank display, an exposed industrial beam ceiling, and a 42" flat screen TV.

Your guests will love the Tank Room's open floorplan with direct bar & lobby access. When rented in conjunction with the Great Room and Franklin Room, the Tank Room is an ideal lounge area or cocktailing space. 


The Franklin Room

The most enclosed and quiet of our three spaces, the Franklin Room is ideal for meetings. Like the Tank Room, this room can accommodate up to 30 guests seated or 50 guests standing. When booking the Franklin Room,  you can ensure absolute privacy and an intimate atmosphere.

When rented in conjunction with the Great Room and Tank Room, the Franklin Room is the perfect spot for your buffet setup. It also makes for a great lounge area, especially for weddings!
