Future Mountain Tap Room cleverly combines a modern industrial space with rustic farmhouse charm, all in the Northern suburbs of Melbourne. Their oak barrels, stainless steel tanks, warehouse design elements, thoughtful lighting and high ceilings make for an impressive event space, and even better photos! The bar service is relaxed and friendly and along with their excellent farmhouse inspired ales, they offer a small selection of local wines, cider, spirits and soft drinks to keep everyone happy. Future Mountain is the perfect venue for a relaxed wedding, a casual corporate event, pop up workshops, a large or small engagement celebration party, a milestone birthday or just a regular weekend catch up with your nearest and dearest.
They can host groups of up to 120 and have some lovely little spots for smaller and more intimate functions too. Please read on for a brief description of our specific function areas:
Full venue hire
Full venue hire gives you exclusive access to the entire venue, which may be treated as a blank canvas for larger events. Full venue hire allows you to style the space to suit your event needs along with being able to have a DJ or play your own music and move the current layout around to allow for sit down dinners and a dance floor. This is a perfect space for a relaxed gathering of up to 120 of your favourite people.
The Barrel Table
The Barrel Table area is visually stunning and perfect for more intimate parties. The custom made Barrel Table seats 16 comfortably or the area can provide a space for a more relaxed gathering of 25- 30 people. A bar tab is available for your group or you can simply have your group order as they go. Please note this area contains Future Mountain's barrels which have active and ferments in them, so it is not suited for livelier groups or groups with young children, as the barrels are under pressure and cannot be touched.
The Brewery Back Bar
The Brewery Back Bar combines the best of what the venue offers - the oak barrels and stainless steel tanks are in view, you have a private bar as part of your event, and in the summer they can even open up the roller door to bring the outside, inside (while still being weatherproof- this is Melbourne after all!). You can also bring in private caterers to provide roaming canapes or buffets or come in an hour before your event and set up your own grazing table. This space is perfect for groups of 50- 80 who are after a casual place to celebrate a special event.
The Front Bar Lounge
The Front Bar Lounge offers a more casual set up for groups of up to 30 people. The space comprises of both low and high seating along with a couple of lounge chairs and beautiful Italian leather sofas. It’s cozy and a great space to host a smaller group in, especially if younger children will be attending.
Food options and Catering:
Future Mountain Brewing currently provide a small range of bar snacks and share plates for their taproom customers and can also provide this menu for groups of up to 20 or 30 people. For larger groups their Functions Manager is more than happy to help you organise the catering for larger functions, some of whom they have used in previous functions and some who have come recommended, as they have used a variety of caterers for events in our taproom. They can also put you in touch with some great event planners/ stylists for larger events, such as weddings and engagement parties.
