In accordance with University of Wisconsin-Madison policies and procedures, all alcohol service in Grainger Hall is provided by Wisconsin Union Catering. We offer a variety of hosted and cash-bar packages. Each package carries a minimum sales guarantee for each bartender, per hour. All sales generated during the event count toward the guarantee, and any shortage will be applied to the final invoice. Wisconsin Union Catering will determine the amount of bartenders required at each event and whether a beer garden or ID checkers are needed.
