Booking Our Facilities
We receive many requests to rent our venue for parties, weddings, rehearsal dinners, fundraisers, and special. We wish we could say "YES" to every request! Experience has taught us that’s not always a good idea. Here is a list of events we can accommodate:
We host last call in our Tasting Room at 9pm, so Montanya is a great place to host a private party that starts at 9 or 10pm. You can host a cocktail gathering, push back the furniture for a dance party, bring in a DJ, performer, or band, or simply mingle among the stills. We’re open to ideas, so let us know what you have in mind.
Sunday Morning Brunch
Think baby shower, wedding-related breakfast or brunch, a special family gathering, etc. We can offer cocktails, and you’re welcome to bring in your favorite caterer and decorate as you wish. Cocktail services could include a morning favorite like our fresh-made Bloody Mary, a full Bloody Mary bar, or The Morning Brunch cocktail (all fresh squeezed juices). These are scheduled between 9am and 11am.
This is one of the ways we can most effectively support our community. Let us host your fundraiser or invite us to donate cocktails or rum for your non-profit event. We can even bartend and design cocktails. (We don't say yes to every request but we try!)
We'd LOVE to come to your wedding, private party or liquor-licensed event to make cocktails on site. Our mixologists and bartenders specialize in Montanya Rum cocktails (of course) but we also offer a signature Colorado Cocktail Bar offering spirits, wine and beer from our favorite Colorado companies. We partner with Mountain Spirits who retails the spirits, wines and beers not made by Montanya Distillers. (Please note: We typically can’t provide this service in July—it’s a busy month—but many other times we can say yes.)
A Note on Rehearsal Dinners and Weddings:
We are definitely not the best wedding and rehearsal dinner venue in Crested Butte, unless it is the off-season. We are small (56 people seated, 75 people in a casual mingling setting) and we don't typically cater food—only cocktails and appetizers (although we partner with great caterers). We don't have banquet tables, plates and flatware, linens, etc. And we are a working distillery with lots of permanently installed equipment, which looks very cool but takes up space.
We also prefer to keep our doors to the public open during our regular business hours, especially during the busy seasons. It takes a facility fee to make it worth our while to turn our regular customers away. That said, if this is the best, coolest place for you and your group, we will always consider your inquiry. If we say yes, it will be AWESOME. All things are possible, after all. :)
Each event is custom designed. Let us know how our beautiful building might help you to realize your vision! (Are you a band looking to play live music at Montanya Distillers? This page is for you.)
