7 Considerations for a Successful Beer Tent Setup

Let's talk about setting up a beer tent at your gathering—it’s more than just popping open a bottle under a shelter. To really ensure your event flows as smoothly as your drinks, it’s crucial to get familiar with the local laws and regulations. Every area has its own set of rules when it comes to hosting and alcohol service, and staying informed is key to avoiding any hiccups. 

Below, we've highlighted some important considerations to help you plan responsibly and make your event a success.

  1. Setup Location: Finding the right spot for your beer tent is crucial for maximizing visibility and ensuring enough room for each person. Before setting up, it's essential to get in touch with your local utilities office to mark underground lines, preventing any mishaps if you're planning to anchor your tent into the ground. And if you're working with a hard surface where stakes aren’t welcome, don't worry! Our selection includes frame tents designed with a reliable ballasting system or concrete anchors, offering stability without the need for traditional stakes. 
  2. Licenses, Permits, Applications: Take time to thoroughly review your local regulations to make sure you're armed with the correct licenses and permits, for serving alcohol and setting up your tent. If you're partnering with a caterer, ensure they come with a valid liquor license. Opting to handle the bar in house? Look into obtaining a temporary liquor license specific to your event's needs. But it's not all about the drinks – don't forget to check for any permits required for your tent setup, making sure everything is up to code, including compliance with fire safety standards such as NFPA 701-2.
  3. Equipment & Materials: Don't skip out on the essential equipment and materials that can make all the difference. From keeping drinks chilled with coolers to dispensing your beer from kegs, and ensuring you have plenty of ice and cups to serve beer. Beyond basics, add comfortable furniture and chairs to your space to create an area where guests can relax and enjoy.
  4. Under 21 Restricted Location & Liability: It's important to uphold responsibility and ensure compliance with alcohol regulations, especially regarding underage guests. Crafting a solid plan to prevent alcohol service to those under 21 is a must. Consider whether you'll station a dedicated team member at the tent entrance to verify IDs for crowd control or if it'll be more practical for your servers to check identification at the time of purchase.
  5. Staffing the Tent: to provide the best experience for your attendees, you’ll need the right number of staff on hand. A good starting point is one bartender for every 75 guests, but take into account the specific demands of your festival or event, especially during peak times, to adjust your staffing levels accordingly. Additionally, remember the importance of having a crew ready for the setup and takedown of your beer tent. If you're uncertain about how many people you'll need for the setup, reference your installation guide or reach out to us to our knowledgeable team. 
  6. Countertops & Storage: Securing the right serving surfaces, like countertops or tables, is key to running a smooth bar area. Not only does it ramp up efficiency and enhance guest comfort, but it also minimizes the chances of spills, keeping your event tidy. Additionally, having ample storage space for your overstock items helps maintain an organized appearance by keeping extras conveniently out of view.

Communication with Community: To draw a crowd, effective communication with the community is essential. Boost attendance and excitement by employing a variety of advertising methods. From eye-catching signs to social media campaigns, and even leveraging local radio ads, these strategies are designed to create a buzz about your festival. By spreading the word, you not only invite a diverse audience but also significantly enhance the potential for increased guest attendance and sales.
