Throughout the months leading up to our big day, the dedication and care shown by Sam were nothing short of remarkable. Sam went above and beyond, meeting with us on multiple occasions to address our questions and alleviate any concerns we had. It's clear that the team at Granite Brewery takes immense pride in their work, and their commitment to ensuring every detail was perfect was truly heartwarming.
As the weeks drew closer to the event, we encountered some last-minute changes that could have potentially caused stress and anxiety. However, thanks to the unwavering support and professionalism of both Sam and Chris, we were able to navigate these changes seamlessly. Their flexibility and willingness to accommodate our needs made all the difference and eased our minds during a potentially stressful time.
The wedding day itself was an absolute dream, and that's largely thanks to the outstanding staff at Granite Brewery. Every member of the team demonstrated an exceptional level of service, going above and beyond to make sure every aspect of our celebration was flawless. Their kindness, attention to detail, and genuine warmth made us feel like we were among friends who truly cared about making our day special.
What truly set Granite Brewery & Tied House apart, however, was the incredible sense of humour and lightheartedness they brought to the occasion. Laughter filled the air, both from us and our guests, as the staff effortlessly wove humour into their interactions, creating an atmosphere of joy and relaxation. This made the entire experience not only enjoyable for us, but for everyone in attendance.
I highly recommend Granite Brewery to anyone planning a wedding or any special event. Their team's dedication, expertise, and genuine passion for creating unforgettable moments are unparalleled. From the moment we booked to the last dance of the night, Granite Brewery exceeded our expectations in every way imaginable. Thank you to your remarkable team as you’ve given us a unforgettable experience.
Best venue for that intimate feel....
Incredible Venue and Best Staff!
We requested to have a rehearsal dinner at Granite the night before the wedding, and they were so accommodating. We were able to practice the ceremony, and a table was set up on the back patio for us to have dinner afterwards. Chris introduced himself to us as the lead staff that would be taking care of us for both the rehearsal and the wedding. He is absolutely incredible and was a pleasure to work with. He ensured that the service was excellent, and really made us feel at ease.
The wedding day at Granite went even better than I could have ever imagined! The Granite staff were all so helpful in getting the venue set up in the afternoon. The space is already beautiful, so we only needed to bring minimal decorations and it really felt like a beautiful wedding space. They have access to a gorgeous courtyard right behind the restaurant where the ceremony took place. Then the back patio was used for cocktail hour, before moving inside the restaurant for the reception. It was incredible to be able to have everything all in one venue so our guests didn’t have to travel, while still feeling like there was a great flow to the evening getting to move between the three different spaces.
We chose to do the plated dinner, and the food and drinks were absolutely amazing. We had guests come up to us after to compliment how good the food was, and talk about how impressed they were with the service. Chris was incredible and really kept the whole reception flowing so smoothly, while also connecting with our other vendors to keep them informed of the timing between each course. After dinner, the dance floor opened and our guests had a great time! I loved that there was a dancefloor for any guests that wanted to dance, but there was also the back patio available for any guests that wanted to relax in a quieter space and just chat instead. The whole day felt so wonderful and intimate, and a big part of that was Granite being such an incredible venue and the staff making everything run so smoothly. I would absolutely recommend Granite to anyone considering it for their wedding venue!
Day of the wedding, everything went seamlessly, all was well organized with the guests being seated in the courtyard for the ceremony, followed by cocktails under the tent afterwards. Dinner service was also well organized (buffet), the food was fantastic, and there was more than enough for all of our guests, a lot of which went for second helpings. Desserts, coffee, tea, etc were all served immediately after dinner and all tasted great as well. We did late night snacks as well, which were appreciated by all of our guests and Sam's recommendations for the amounts to order were spot on. Drink services were well done all evening with no one waiting too long at any point. All of our guests have been complimenting how good the venue was, the staff, the food, and the atmosphere.
We would have absolutely no concerns in recommending the Granite for someone's wedding in the future.
Most Magical Bohemian Wedding September 11, 2022
Our ceremony was held in the court yard - we danced down the aisle to the Conga, Gloria Estefan with Shakers and Tambourines. It was very beautiful - the ceremony and reception was very intimate and cozy everyone had a good time. Cocktails and appetizers on the out door patio fantastic. Food was amazing!!!! Beef, Chicken and Veggie Option yum - Veggie option was a really nice pasta! Price was perfect as well - everything in budget under 15K - parking, ceremony (court-yard), reception space, 75 guests, open bar, seated dinner, deco provided. We just showed up and enjoyed the day. I would highly recommended the Granite Brewery especially if your trying to keep cost down. This place is fantastic. The staff was excellent. and we feel we had a really big wedding - it was perfect!
Thank you guys for all your hard work! and special shout out to SAM and CHRIS @ the Granite Brewery thank you for answering emails / phone calls asap and helping us make our day awesome!!! AND PS thank you for letting us bring our Jookie (our puppy) to the ceremony!! He loved it!!!!

Amazing Experience at Granite Brewery
Chris and the entire event staff were friendly and helpful, and made sure that meals were served on time and the drinks kept flowing. Speaking of food: from the hors d'oeuvres to dessert, everything was SO good! Guests are still raving about the food months later.
The venue was decorated beautifully. The courtyard was the perfect spot to have our ceremony, and the reception space fit 80 people (and a photo booth!) very comfortably. Thank you, Granite!
Fantastic and stress free!!!
Fantastic venue and fantastic value
