Every Event is Unique
Regardless of how many events we cater, we always take the time to treat every event with the same personal attention and uniqueness it deserves. Whether it's a wedding, bar mitzvah/bat mitzvah, anniversary, birthday or corporate party, we employ the philosophy of open communication throughout the entire planning process by combining your ideas with our experience to create a truly memorable event. Is there going to be a signature drink? Are you going to have wine table service? Would you like a Venetian bar set-up? These are just a few of the questions we address during the communication process. Unlike other beverage providers, we don't dictate which type of brands will be provided to your guests. This is your event, not ours. Rather, we recommend and suggest certain beverages based on our experience, current trends and your input. There are no packages or set lists. Every event is different therefore every beverage inventory list is unique.
If you are getting married or throwing a party and you want to supply beverages to your guests, the first thing to do is contact us. We are very easy to get a hold of via telephone or by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by Building Your Bar. Once we are contacted, an event specialist will reach out to you to discuss the particulars of your event. After we gather all the pertinent information, we will then create a beverage inventory list for you to preview. Over time and through open communication, we will edit the list, adding and subtracting items until we have a finalized version. We will email both you and the caterer the final copy. We will then contact the caterer about delivery and pickup times.
If you choose the pickup option, we will be there when the event ends to pickup the unused product. The following day we will contact you and let you know exactly what was consumed and what the balance is.
We require a deposit one week before the event and we keep a credit card on file until the final balance is paid. It's that simple!
It's probably the question we get asked the most. The answer? Not as much as you think. It has always been our policy that an event never runs out of a particular item, so we always bring out more inventory than needed, so don't worry about that. On average figure about 2 drinks per person per hour. A four hour reception for 150 adult guests would require about 1200 drinks to be served. However, the number of drinkers vs. non-drinkers in attendance, age of the group, time of day, time of year, weather conditions, indoor vs. outdoor events, type of food being served, serving size of the glass and location of the bar are factors that need to be considered in planning an event. One thing you don't have to worry about? Having enough. We always bring more than necessary because we offer the service to take back whatever is not used.
There is a $300 fee for our delivery and pickup service.
Typically, kegs are a little cheaper than bottled beer, but bottles offer a much greater variety. We sell kegs and can certainly make them available at your event (caterer permitted), but we overwhelmingly recommend bottled beer. Why? Because you can offer your guests several brands to choose from for about the same price with a lot less hassle especially in regards to serving time for your guests. It takes a lot longer to draw a glass of beer from a keg vs. pop a top and go. You want that bar to keep flowing!
Yes, signature drinks are very popular right now and highly recommend especially if you are not having a full bar with liquor. Our most popular signature drinks are Mojitos, Sweet Tea Vodka, Blue Hawaiian and Margaritas. Signature drinks are a great conversation starter and your guests will rave about them.
We will arrive for pick up the moment the event ends. There is a $300 fee for our delivery and pickup service. Please note: If there is anything you would like to take with you from the bar at the end of the event (for example: open bottles of liquor) it is your responsibility to take them. We highly recommend that you assign somebody in your party to meet us during the pickup time to inform us of what you would like to keep. We can assist in boxing up anything you would like and we will carry it to your vehicle, however if nobody is there at the time of pickup we will remove all the alcohol from the site as required. Once we leave the event site, all the products picked up from the event are the property of Little Bros. Beverage Outlet.
Yes we accept Visa, Mastercard, Discover & American Express. You can also mail a check to 67 Church Street, Flemington NJ 08822.
We do over 200 weddings a year so we recommend booking our services 60-90 days in advance, however we have a very fast turnaround time and most times we will be able to accommodate you.
