How much does it cost?
Usually nothing! We welcome groups of all sizes to host private events in our spacious, inviting taproom.

For larger groups or exclusive use of our taproom, we request a minimum spend amount. The "minimum" is calculated based on day of the week, time of year, and duration of the event.
What are my food options?
There are several options to feed your group while at Random Row:

The Melt: We have Charlottesville's first grilled cheese bar in house, which includes our 3-Cheese + Fig and Swine is Divine (pulled pork, bacon, cheddar, pepper jack, sourdough) sandwiches, as well as smothered tots etc. (full menu here). Great for small or moderate sized groups. If you're bringing 150 people, we will need outside help (see below)

Food Trucks: You are welcome to book a food truck for your event (and we are happy to give recommendations). We only ask that you run your plans by our team ( to make sure we don't inadvertently book two food trucks for the same date/time.

Delivery: Many local restaurants will deliver to Random Row for events or large groups.

Catering: This is a great option for more formal events. We have worked with many local caterers in the past and can make recommendations based on your food preferences.

BYOF: Bring your own food. You are welcome to bring your own food to enjoy during your event. However, you are responsible for setup before the event and clean up after the event.
Can I have outside alcohol?
Yes - for certain events (discuss with us in advance). Random Row is a brewery, and therefore, has a brewing license that allows us to sell only beer.

It is possible to serve wine/liquor if you rent the entire inside of the brewery or the breezeway outside. Biergarten reservations are not be permitted to have wine due to the fact that the rest of the brewery remains open to the public.

If you are interested in having outside alcohol at your event, you will need to obtain an ABC banquet license for the day so that you can legally serve wine/liquor in addition to our beer. A contract will need to be signed and approved by the VA ABC. Also, outside alcohol can only be served and consumed in designated spaces not open to the public. And lastly, in this scenario (as with closing to the public or reserving spaces during peak periods) we will request that you agree to cover a minimum amount of beer sales, since we do not charge an event fee and since the wine/liquor is not provided by the brewery. All outside alcohol must have a bartender serving, and can be provided by either Random Row for $15/hr per bartender, or a caterer. Mixed drinks are permitted but we do not allow shots to be taken.
    Can I have a tent?
    Yes. If you reserve the outdoor space and are worried about the weather, you may want to consider a tent rental. Previous groups have had great experience with VA Tent Rentals (call 540-910-3425 and ask for Chuck). VA Tent Rentals will allow you to cancel your reservation a few days in advance and will refund you 75% of the total amount, which offers nice flexibility. If you do use a tent, they must be secured by water barrels (by order of the Charlottesville Fire Marshal).
    What is your occupancy limit?
    275 people on site at one time, of which 133 can be inside the tasting room.
    I want to book! What's next?

    For larger groups or exclusive rentals, we ask that you sign a contract and send a deposit for 10% of the quoted "minimum". The deposit guarantees your reservation and is refundable 3 months prior to your event. Within 3 months of the event, the deposit is non-refundable.
