Good News Defiance


Host your party at Good News Brewing Company

Good News O'Fallon

Parties, Showers, Rehearsal Dinners and more...

When we were home brewing beer together in the basement we had monthly brew parties with our friends and family.  We would make beer, eat pizza, and share Good News. This is why we love hosting parties and events.  Reserve your date or contact us for more information.

  • How do we book the event?

Our reservations are first come first serve, so we suggest booking your reservation as soon as possible. Once you make the reservation, we will be in contact with your final payment options.
  • What is the Semi-Private Party Option
    When you book a party at any of our Good News locations, we will put you in an area that fits your party size and other customers may be sitting right next to your party. If you want some privacy, we will reserve the entire patio in O'Fallon or the front room in Defiance. Each of these can hold about 50 people and we will close the area to the general public. Note: +In Defiance the public may be walking through this room to go to the restrooms. We try to use close the section and have our other customers use the bathroom outside, but this is not possible on busy weekends. + We require a 30 person minimum buffet and bar for Semi-Private events as we have to close the entire section to the general public. This can be paid by the host or a hybrid approach, but either way $15/person for food and $20/person for bar = $1,050 minimum.
  • What is the capacity of the brewery for events?
    Our brewery can accommodate up to 50 guests for small private events. We have both indoor and outdoor seating options to suit your preferences.
  • Is there a rental fee for hosting events at the brewery?
    Yes, each event requires a rental fee to reserve the tables or party room . For most parties this is only $100 and for a semi-private event this is $200. For large private events (100+ people) such as weddings, class reunions, or large corporate events in Defiance there is a different fee.

    Absolutely! You are welcome to bring your own decorations to personalize the space for your event. However, please check with us for any restrictions or timeline. BUT NO GLITTER!
