When looking into wedding venues for your wedding day in central Illinois you’d be doing yourself a disservice by not considering Destihl Brewery for your day! The brewery is an incredible space with a rich history, a ton of personality, beautiful spaces available to use on your wedding day, and of course the incredible beer they’re famous for. Take a look with me at all the things that make Destihl Brewery a top pick for your wedding day!
Destihl Brewery offers a variety of spaces to use for wedding celebrations, making it a versatile venue for weddings of almost any size. Whether you’re having a more intimate wedding or something huge where you can invite ALL your people, Destihl has you covered! The venue can host up to 175 seated guests, 275 guests for cocktail style gatherings, and is equally fit to host gatherings of 50 or fewer people.
The multiple spaces of the Destihl Brewery are what make these different size weddings possible and part of what makes it such an incredible wedding venue. Their main area, the Barrel Room is their indoor space perfect for portraits and your wedding reception. The newly added courtyard takes this experience to the next level. The courtyard is attaches to the barrel room and is the perfect space for your ceremony, cocktail hour, or even to just have more room for your guests to mingle and enjoy themselves during your wedding.
Let’s face it, a large part of deciding on the wedding venue for your big day is the look and feel of the place. You want a space that is able to fit your guests, but if that space doesn’t fit your style or really isn’t all that appealing you’re not going to choose it. Luckily that is NOT the case for Destihl! The Destihl Brewery has so much style and charm to it that it makes it hard to pass up as a wedding venue.
For starters the new courtyard gives couples a scenic outdoor view for their ceremony and cocktail hour. The string lit space also gives you and your guests a great opportunity to enjoy some time outside when you need a break from the dance floor. The star of the show though is the barrel room. With tall ceilings, a modern yet industrial feel, and a wall filled with barrels (hence the name) the space offers a one of a kind feel for your wedding day.
As a brewery it should come as no surprise that Destihl offers some of the best drink options you can find in a wedding venue. More than just beer though they also offer wines, spirits, and non alcoholic beverages for anyone to enjoy. The brewery also offers both on and off site food catering options. It’s up to you whether you want to work with the Destihl staff to craft a food menu from their options or have food catered from somewhere else. Either way having these options gives you a lot of flexibility to make sure your wedding experience comes together exactly how you envision it!
As you can see, Destihl Brewery gives you a LOT of bang for your buck as a wedding venue. The amenities and features don’t stop there though! The venue has all the tables and seating you’ll need as well as plates, silverware, glassware, and linen napkins. There are 2 bars on site, one indoor and one outdoor, and they also offer rentals for different audio and visual equipment to be used throughout the day. The staff of Destihl is incredibly helpful and friendly to boot, and will help to ensure that your wedding day runs smoothly and you have everything you need when you need it. Lastly they do offer tours and beer tastings as well as part of their venue service if you want to fit that into your wedding weekend!
