Do we have to serve cocktails at our event? What if we just want beer and/or wine?
While we love making cocktails, you don't have to serve them at your event. You can serve just beer and wine! Or just beer! Or just wine. This is your event, and we're happy to serve what you want!
Do you offer non-alcoholic beverage catering?
We do! And we make might fine non-alcoholic beverages!
What services does Merit Badge provide?
We provide bar production for events in the Pacific Northwest. What does that mean, exactly? We're an all-inclusive bar service. When you hire Merit Badge for the job, we bring bartenders, alcohol, mixers, menus, garnish, glassware, ice, insurance, bar tools, etc. We can create custom cocktails for your event, or work with you to determine a menu that works for you and your guests. We can coordinate rentals, or purchase compostable/disposable glassware if you prefer. When it comes to the bar, we handle it all!
Can I provide my own alcohol?
Yes and no. In general, we prefer to bring all the alcohol for events. That way, we can ensure the proper quantity and quality for service. (Plus, we don't mark up on the cost of alcohol so it's just one less thing on your to do list! Let us do the schlepping!)
Do you teach cocktail classes?
Yes! We love teaching classes. For more info, visit our Classes and Education page.
Do you offer food as well?
No, we do not. We often partner with our friends at Tournant in order to provide the full event experience.
Can you do last-minute events?
Yes! If we are able, we'll make it happen. Just give us a call or shoot us an email so we can get the ball rolling.
Do you do large events as well as small ones?
Yes! No event is too large, and no event is too small. We've served 600 and we've served 6.
Do you provide coffee?
Typically, we ask that hot coffee be provided by your food caterer. We can provide iced coffee and tea, but we aren't set up for hot coffee service at this time.
What if we don't use as much alcohol as estimated?
Great question! We charge based on consumption, so you won't be charged for unopened bottles of beer or wine or unused spirits. You'll see this reflected on your final invoice.
