Live music

The Barrelhouse Ballroom at Five Wits Brewing is a great midsize, standing room only music hall that offers a lot of the perks offered at large venues.

The sound is usually very good, the lighting setup is better than anything you’ve seen at a venue this size, food and drink lines move quickly, and restrooms are ridiculously clean. Sold shows don’t feel uncomfortably crowded like you might find at other places.

With a brewery onsite, expect a handful of solid beer styles to choose from.

Barrelhouse Ballroom books a lot of regional bands with national names coming through regularly. They book diverse genres of bands, but tend to host more jam bands, cover/tribute acts and country acts.
