We value the interaction we have with the folks who drink our beer, and we are proud to accommodate our patrons in the Empty Pint. We have built our business serving our neighbors and walk-in customers, and to this end, we do not close down for private parties. See below for Private Tours.

Please be respectful of our space limitations. Do not put large groups of tables together and hold them until the rest of your party arrives, or use separate tables to hold food, pitchers of beer, etc.

Please do not bring in outside decorations for any occasion.

We do serve food, but please understand that our kitchen and indoor seating area is not designed to accommodate large groups. We do not take reservations for tables.

Our indoor seating is very limited. We understand that it may not be the best option for planning a party, especially when the weather may prevent people from sitting outside.
