Frequently Asked Questions

What About Food?

Aside from some special events, we don’t currently serve food. But, we encourage you to bring a picnic or stop by your favorite food spot and bring your take-out here. Limited supplies of paper plates and plastic silverware are available on request. There are even a couple of gas grills located on the property. Propane tanks are available to rent for a nominal charge.

We also strive to have food trucks on most Saturdays. Follow us on Facebook for more information and a food truck and special event Schedule. There are also several restaurants that will deliver to our facility.

Food at Barnstormer Distillery

Are Dogs Allowed?

We love dogs! We welcome them in our outdoor areas anytime! But be advised we have lots of wildlife and everything that comes with them on the property. We have water dishes and try to have treats on hand.

So get ready to hang out and drink with your best friend at your side! Please note, dogs unfortunately are not allowed inside the Distillery or Hangar, but we love having dogs on our property. We only ask that you be responsible, leash your dog as required, clean up after your dog and be sure they are child and other animal friendly. If needed, we have spare cleanup bags behind the bar.
