Downstairs Event Guide

The idea of bringing together good friends and family, creating special memories, and cherishing all of life’s little triumphs and big accomplishments has been the number one goal of “the Loop,” alongside our unending desire to craft great beer, long before In the Loop Brewing Company existed as a brick and mortar brewery and taphouse along Highway 41 in Land O’ Lakes. In fact, the original “Loop” was a place for us to gather and to set aside time from our busy schedules, sometimes to celebrate a birthday, an important milestone, a graduation, or simply to bask in the company of good friends, laugh, let loose, drink the beer we brewed in our garage and get loopy!

In the Loop Brewing Company was founded on the tradition of bringing people together. So whether you are celebrating a birthday, a graduation, a retirement, an engagement, or you just want an excuse to hang out with your best friends, we have the space and the attention to detail to ensure that you have a wonderful event at In the Loop Brewing Company. Nothing is more of a priority to us then translating the same feeling of love and friendship that we enjoy on “the Loop” to your special event at our taphouse. Our team is ready to work with you to create the experience that you are looking for and most importantly to have fun!

In the Loop Brewing Company can accommodate everything from a small business meeting to a large birthday party in our event space overlooking Lake Padgett to a picturesque wedding in our beautiful beer garden. We can provide accommodations including food truck catering, audio visual capabilities and more to create a special event to fit any budget or occasion. We are also happy to custom design events to meet any needs you may have. All prices include sales tax and a 20% gratuity on all bar tabs. There is an additional fee of $35 assessed for cleanup on all events regardless of size except wedding receptions and ceremonies. Please see the wedding guide for packages, additional fees and other options.

Are you looking for a fun get together with your friends or to elevate your beer IQ? In the Loop Brewing offers several private options for you and your guests to play with beer and learn about the brewing process.

• Beer and Food Pairing – Anything goes when it comes to pairing beer with food. Our Event Curator can help you pair sweet treats like chocolate or cupcakes to more savory offerings like meats and cheeses with our Loop brews for a fun educational afternoon. You’ll even learn some stories about the early days of In the Loop Brewing and how some of our beers got their names. Events require a minimum of 12 people and a maximum of 22 at a cost of $35 per person.

• The Art of Beer – It’s time to hit the books! Have you ever wanted to learn more about craft beer, beer styles, the brewing process, or the history of beer? At In the Loop Brewing we offer a variety of interactive classes and can help you design any tasting event to suit your palette. Are you a hop head? Our Event Curator can teach you all about the noble hop and curate a beautiful selection of the hoppiest brews to dazzle your taste buds. And when in season, we’ll even show you our very own homegrown Florida hops and freshly press our pale ale to show you just how much these tiny green gems affect the aroma and taste. The Event Curator can help you design a beer class of your choosing to entertain you and your friends. All beer tastings require a minimum of 16 people and a maximum of 22 people at a cost of $25 per person.
