"I want to thank you SO MUCH for all of your help with yesterday’s retirement celebration for my good friend. We had a fantastic time (which continued into the late hours back on his deck). Brenna, Steve and the whole crew are such professionals and really did a wonderful job welcoming our guests. It was the perfect venue and went off without a hitch.Thanks again, and have a great weekend"

"Great place to have a surprise party. They allowed my son to bring in guitars to provide entertainment. Good catering. Great staff, delicious drinks! Have visited on other occasions to try various beers and ate paninis which were very good,"

"We come for musical bingo often! Great atmosphere and so welcoming! We are a large group of co-workers turned friends and we range from our early 30’s to our 60’s and we all have a blast! Of course we also enjoy the selection of beers and snacks. If your a group of 10 or more, and it’s a popular night best to make a reservation however most guests are super friendly and welcoming, we have spread out over a couple of tables and made some new friends for the evening!"

"Descendants Brewery was an amazing option for my event and their staff made it absolutely perfect! I hosted a 30th birthday party with 45-50 people on a Saturday afternoon and we had plenty of space and outstanding service. I had coordinated a euchre tournament and not only did they provide more tables then I originally requested but they also accommodated us when the tournament went later than expected. We enjoyed their great beer, food and sweet live music from Matt Weidinger which is always a treat! Booking the event was super easy and it could not have been more affordable!! Highly recommended!"

"Although the weather wasn’t the best (and who would have thought we’d have snow, sleet and rain all combined in a day in April) we warmly celebrated inside at Descendants! I have to complement your staff who all were accommodating and able to adapt to our needs. You have a friendly and very competent staff who take hospitality seriously to make sure things run smoothly. This given the day’s circumstances was appreciated. You will see Glenn and I back at your location....it is a fun and inviting place...something that was noticed by our family and friends!! "
