events at Cardinal Spirits

We’d like to thank you for considering Cardinal Spirits Distillery and Tasting Room Bar for your event. We strive to provide your group with the best possible service that we can. Please keep in mind that we are a very small space and that our main events space is a working distillery. 

We have opened a kitchen and are happy to provide guests with a variety of food options from light snacks to paired dinners. 

Below is a list of our spaces available for events. Find what suits you best, contact us via the form at the bottom of the page, and we'll be in touch soon!  



The most popular space that we rent out is our distillery. Yup, that’s right, a working distillery! Your guests can enjoy this private space and sip cocktails next to the very still that made the spirits you are drinking.

We will provide your group with your own dedicated bartender serving a set menu of cocktail standards. Food is available upon request, prices vary.

This is an industrial space and this area is not climate controlled. While we will make every effort to keep guests comfortable please remember this when considering this space for winter and summer events.

Nonprofits & Student Groups:
We love hosting organizations with events like fundraisers, mixers, and other do-gooding that you do so well. We are happy to offer you our space at a reduced rate on non-peak times and days of the week. Please email us to learn more.



Our patio is a coveted treasure on sunny days and is open to all ages and leashed species. Because this is an open space we are not able to rent out portions of the patio at this time. In the event of inclement weather all events on the patio are cancelled. We would love to guarantee that we can move you inside but there are too many variables at stake with producing spirits and tending to our regular patrons.

Tasting Room Bar (The Birdhouse)

This is our second favorite space in the building. The first is, of course, our distillery. Renting this space means closing down to the public and is determined on a case-by-case basis. When rented in conjunction with the patio and distillery we are able to accommodate 200 guests.

Offsite Events

When it comes to bringing the party to you we've got you covered! We can cater weddings, meetings, your goldfish's birthday, and all other specialty events.

Please keep in mind that when operating offsite we must adhere to all state liquor laws and permit requirements. As an Artisan Distillery permits can be tricky sometimes. We've made great strides, lobbying for special events permits and Sunday sales, but there is still a lot of work to do. We can't change the laws overnight and we don't want to break them either. There are some instances where we are legally blocked from meeting guest requests but we will always go above and beyond to try and help. 

Another thing to remember when thinking of Cardinal Spirits for catering services is that we can not provide any beer and wine, spirits only. There some instances at weddings and events where we can serve them for you but we can not supply them.
