Event Information and Policies
On-site parking is available on a first-come, first-serve basis for all our restaurant guests. Due to our location in Central Phoenix, parking is limited. Please consider car pooling or alternate forms of transportation.
The restaurant will provide all glassware and plates. Banquet linens are available upon request and at the expense of the guest. Personal decorations are permitted as long as the time of set-up has been approved and set-up does not interfere with normal restaurant business.
Room rental fees vary from $100 to $300 based on the date and time of your event. Rooms are reserved for a period of three hours; additional hours may be arranged upon request for an additional fee. After that time, the room may be re-opened to other patrons of the restaurant.
Food and Beverage Minimums:
Minimum food and beverage purchases as well as minimum guest counts may apply based on the date and time of your event. These fees will be discussed in advance and before any deposit is made for the event.
In order to secure a private party, a $100 deposit is required. The preferred method of payment is a personal check post-dated for the day after your event. However, we also accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover as well as cash. Your deposit will be held until after your event. If a check was used, it will be returned to you upon the completion of your event. If cash or credit card is used, the amount will be used towards the balance of your event.
Final payment is due at the conclusion of your event. Final payments must be made via credit card or cash. A gratuity of 18% will be added to all food and beverage charges. One check is preferred, but separate checks are certainly possible. Please inform us ahead of time if you will need separate checks.
Deposits for private events are refundable (or transferable to another date) if the event is canceled at least 48 hours prior to the date of the event. Events canceled with less than 48 hours notice will forfeit their deposit.
Menus and Guest Count:
Menus and guest counts will be noted on an Event Order Sheet that is prepared by the event planner for Sun Up Brewing Company and accepted by the organizer of the event. Estimated final guest count (plus or minus 5 guests) and any menu changes must be given to the event planner at least one week in advance. No guest count or menu changes will be accepted with less than 48 hours notice before the event.
Responsible Alcohol Service:
Sun Up Brewing Company is responsible for following laws regarding the sale and serving of all alcoholic beverages. Alcoholic beverages may only be dispensed by the Sun Up staff and no outside beverages are permitted. Our staff is trained to serve alcohol responsibly and will not serve any guest who shows signs of intoxication (regardless of whether or not they intend to operate a motor vehicle after the event). We reserve the right to refuse alcohol service to any guest for any reason. All guests consuming alcohol must have a valid, current, US government issued ID. Sun Up reserves the right to eject any persons from the function or Sun Up property without liability.
Sun Up Brewing Company reserves the right to inspect and regulate all private functions. Sun Up is not responsible for damage to or loss of any items left in the building prior to, during, or following any function. The customer is responsible for and shall reimburse Sun Up for any damage, loss, or liability incurred by Sun Up as a result of the actions of any guest at the event.
Outside Food and Beverages:
Please note that no outside food or beverages may be brought in or consumed on Sun Up Brewing Company property. Exceptions to this area are party favors/gifts, which may be distributed but cannot be opened or consumed on the premises. Cakes or other desserts may be brought in for parties-but must be store bought. No homemade desserts are allowed, as per Arizona Health Regulations. Please advise us ahead of time if you will be bringing something that needs refrigeration or freezing so we can arrange for space.
We have several choices for how to serve you and your guests during your event. The event planner will be happy to help you choose which one is right for you.
Open Bar: Drinks will be rung up as ordered during the event and placed on the same bill with the food. This is a good option for someone who wants to pay for the entire party. The open bar option can be customized to include certain beers, wines, and ciders while excluding others. Also, we can customize this option if you would like to offer a certain number of drinks free of charge or a time limit to your guests, and then have them pay for any that fall outside these limitations.
Cash Bar: Guests pay for their own alcoholic beverages. Guests should inform their servers ahead of time who will be paying together or separately. Please ask guests to bring cash to pay as they go or a credit card to start a tab.
Drinks available include any of our regular beers, seasonal selections, cask ales, a revolving selection of wines, and bottled ciders.
Our talented kitchen looks forward to providing you with a fantastic dining experience. Coffee, tea, and soda are offered at no extra charge with any buffet food package. Sales Tax is not included in the per person price and will be added in at the end. If you don’t see an item you would like-just ask! We will do what we can to accommodate any special requests.
