Can I bring outside food, wine, or other beverages.

Drinks:  No outside drink containers of any kind can be brought into the brewery.  This includes water bottles, soda bottles or cans, coffee cups, soda cups and thermos bottles. 

Food:  Food may be brought into the brewer if no food truck is scheduled.  Please check our online calendar of events for food truck listings.  Please also remember that the brewery does sell locally-made Trimbles Pizza and has a number of snacks for purchase. 

No coolers or other containers can be brought into the brewery.  If you or someone in your party is a nursing mom - totally different story - bring whatever you need for your baby's comfort and feeding.  

Why doesn't Midnight Jack sell other brands of beer, wine or other alcoholic beverages?

Well, like the name of our company, we are a brewery meaning we manufacture what we sell.  That is a restriction on our alcohol license imposed by the ABC.  We are only permitted to sell the beer that we manufacture.  We are not permitted to manufacture or sell wine or other distilled spirits.  For those guest who prefer not to sample beer, we do sell non-alcoholic beverages like soda, flavored sparkling water, juice and bottled water. 

I would like a splash of everything, please.

Hold on there!  As much as we would love to sample everything we have, splashes are limited to 2 per customer and only on core beers.  No splashes are offered on 8% ABV or higher.  Our tasters run $2-$5 and are only 5oz - just enough to decide if you like it.

Is re-entry allowed after I enter the building?

When there is a concert in progress, no.  Please be sure that you have all desired belonging upon entering the venue as you will not be permitted to re-enter upon exit.

How does ticketing work?

We sell advance tickets online for most the national and regional touring bands. Check the individual show listing for ticket links. If there isn’t one, tickets will only be sold at the door.  When tickets are sold in advance, we highly recommend purchasing online at presale pricing.  This will also expedite your arrival at the venue.

I heard shows at Midnight Jack's are never really “sold out” prior to show time. Is that true?

We put a limit on the number of tickets sold online to allow people to walk up and buy tickets the night of a show.  Please remember that tickets are generally sold online at pre-sale pricing at a lower price than sold at the door.

Is there a dress code?

Midnight Jack wants you to be as comfortable as can be, but please, no backpacks, skateboards, chains, weapons, bandannas or gang affiliated / offensive hate wear.

What is Midnight Jack's capacity?

Midnight Jack's legal capacity is 105 with table seating and 275 standing room only.

May I bring a camera?

We allow regular point and shoot cameras only. Professional cameras (larger than your hand and / or with a detachable lens) are not allowed into the venue unless you have a photo pass approved by the headlining band. Occasionally, bands do not allow any cameras at all, especially flash. If this is the case, our security staff will ask you to bring the camera back to your vehicle.
