Our crew at Arcadia can make it happen!  Let us bring our legendary barbecue to you with Arcadia Ales Twisted Tail Catering. We can smoke it, grill it, deliver it, serve it, or even food-truck it.  Whole hog roasts are also available. We’ll bring our old-school Lange smoker just for your party – with all the fixins!

Indoor Events:

Our Private Dining Room (PDR) that has a rental fee of $100. The PDR fits 14 at the boardroom-style table for the perfect “”Business Meeting” setting, complete with access to our state of the art A/V equipment. Or if you’re interested in a more intimate yet casual gathering this space can fit up to 20 with some standing room.

The back third of our pub can fit up to 50 guests for a space rental fee of $150. This area would include the PDR as well as tables in the general seating area. A perfect option for small parties and networking events.

Summer/Fall Outdoor Events:

We welcome private events to utilize our back patio in our riverfront beer garden. As this is a more open space we cannot promise it to be a completely private event unless you have at least 50 guests. If you would like to rent that back patio for a private event there is a $250 food commitment.

We also have the option to host your party at the front of the pub. Weather permitting we can open up the space by opening our roll up garage doors (weather permitting), providing a larger indoor and outdoor option.

Food Options:

We suggest a buffet style set up for parties, an easier option for our guests as well as our kitchen. We have a munchies menu as well as an entrée style menu. Pricing for munchies ranges from $10 to $13 per person. Pricing for Mains and Sides range from $12 to $22 per person.

We can easily work within your budget, just let us know the amount you’d like to spend and how many people you’re expecting. We’ll just need to take a little time to crunch some numbers with our Chef to make sure you’re getting the most out of the money you do want to spend.

Beverage Options:

Any and all of our beverage products are available for parties, however, we do not do bulk ordering for parties. Beverages range from $1.00 for Faygo to $6 for a 20oz Tier 2 beer. We can set up your bill on one tab, run a cash bar, provide a ticket system, or work off a set price amount. Just let us know which would work best for you and you’re event and we’ll make it happen!

The Fine Print:

We suggest a 15% to 20% gratuity which we can add that to a final bill. Delivery charges for offsite catering include a 15% service charge.
