Serving Food at a Beer Festival

Serving Food at a Beer Festival

Serving food for a beer festival is a delicate affair that calls for a creative approach. The chosen method of catering depends on the budget an event organizer has to work with. If there is a budgetary allocation for food, an event organizer can outsource food catering services from an eatery or restaurant. This arrangement works and ensures the event organizer has ample time to focus more on the beer festival. Catering for food might distract from the larger goal of a successful beer festival. Letting another entity handle the food allows professional caterers to complement your festival with a range of delicacies making the event memorable.

Depending on where the festival is

Depending on where the festival is hosted, cooking of the food can be conducted on-site. In the instance a beer festival is being held in a private gathering, the event organizers can arrange meals to be cooked on site. To cater in this manner, you need a list of guests in mind. Meals have to be prepared around a fixed number to ensure no guest misses a meal. When cooking for many guests, you have to stick to mainstream dishes that are culturally appropriate to avoid an instance of a mismatch between what the guests want and what is on offer.

If an organizer doesn’t want to cook meals that will take longer to prepare and serve, the organizer can prepare steak on a monster grill. A monster grill helps in roasting multiple steaks in one go. There is not much preparation that goes into preparing steak. With a monster grill and enough charcoal or fuel, depending on the model of your grill, you can prepare steak for your guests in your backyard, cutting the cost of hiring external catering. Preparing roasted steak is a fairly simple exercise, this means you will need minimal labor for the grilling.

A cheap and convenient way of catering for a beer festival is to invite food truck vendors to sell snacks during the festival. Food trucks are a convenient solution because they act as a kitchen on wheels. It is easy for food truck owners to take up their positions in a minimal amount of time. The fact that minimal time is required to set up a food truck in a beer festival makes it a popular organizer option. Since food trucks take up minimal space, you have the option of inviting more than one food truck to improve on the diversity you have to offer your guests.

Alternatively, a person can hire a barbeque truck to cater to the guests. A barbeque trailer works as a mobile steak joint. This style beats a monster grill as it comes with a workforce and its tools. A festival planner can mingle with invites while the barbeque trailer serves food. Working with a professional team ensures that the food is of high quality and is served professionally. A barbeque trailer has a bigger barbeque space, this significantly cuts down on the time that would have been spent in food preparation.
