Helen is the best!! She made everything so easy and made sure the banquet captain knew all of the details for our big day! The venue is breathtaking and the food was delicious! Nothing but great things to say about Karl Strauss!

We decided on Kaul Strauss for our rehearsal dinner because of the beautiful location, great food and great beer. Unfortunately, they do not take reservations between 6pm-8pm. We all showed up at 7pm, got a drink and the bar and we sat down almost immediately. With our big party, the service was actually pretty fast. After dinner, we went out to the garden to do a quick rehearsal. Great time, and great memories!

When looking for a wedding venue, we didn't really know what we wanted--just knew we'd have about 100 people and wanted something pretty (me) and fun (him) with a bit of character. I came across the Karl Strauss location by accident and it was perfect for us! My parents were initially lukewarm about "you're getting married in a brewery??" but after the wedding we got nothing but compliments on how beautiful the location was, how smooth the reception went, and what great vendors we had. We really appreciated the transparency on prices and professionalism in handling the contracts. Another thing to love about Karl Strauss for weddings is that they handle all sorts of little details (linens, tables, etc) so you can focus on the fun parts of wedding planning (flowers, attire). Helen is great for handling things quickly and efficiently. My parents did decide they wanted fancier wines and they were able to accommodate this request. All-in-all, picking Karl Strauss for our reception went a long way to a smooth, low-stress, beautiful wedding. Highly recommended!

There is nothing but good things to say about the wedding services provided by Karl Strauss. Helen who is the manager of events, took every email we had and always responded quickly, even when she was on vacation. We asked so many questions... She also put us at ease when the renovation came along, we were worried at first, but after she showed us the plans we felt much better. The new renovation of the location is amazing! When we met Helen to go over the planning of the wedding day she was delightful and had it down. Almost every question we thought to ask her she went over before we got to ask it.

The banquet manager (on site coordinator) Raimi, is awesome! She worked through all of our craziness with ease and always was there for us on the day of the wedding, but not in anyway intrusive. She is on top of her game and I do not believe anyone could do her job better. Thank you so much Raimi!

The food, service, beer, etc on the day of the event was very good. Every single guest told us they had a wonderful time, loved the food, and the location. The staff even made my wife and I to-go plates, because anyone who has gotten married knows you don't really eat much at your wedding. So when we got back to our hotel that night we had lots of wonderful food to eat.

The grounds are just beautiful, the new remodel looks great.. you get way more than you pay for with the wedding service provided by Karl Strauss.. We are so grateful! This team made our wedding so special!.

Thank you all so very much!

Karl Strauss is literally a hidden gem for wedding receptions/ ceremony's!!!! I wanted to find a venue that had a package deal so it could almost be a one stop shop and i wouldn't have to do as much work on my end. I completely found it ALL at Karl Strauss! They provide the catering, set up/ clean up, alcohol, DJ, the cake and an on site coordinator the day of the wedding. it was PERFECT! The day of my wedding turned out phenomenal! from the time i got to the venue till the end everything went so smoothly it was unreal. My guest had an amazing time, the music was good and people couldnt get off the dance floor, the beer tasted amazing, our photos taken in the Japanese garden were gorgeous, and their service was top notch! Karl Strauss definitely helped create a picture perfect wedding.

Words cannot describe what a pleasure it was to have our wedding at Karl Strauss. From the beginning, my wife and I were having trouble finding a wedding venue that was both our style and not astronomically priced. As soon as we walked into Karl Strauss Gardens, we knew it was the place for us.

The months leading up, we worked with Helen who was extremely helpful with helping us plan. Any questions we had were immediately answered either by phone or email. No question was too small for her.

The day of could not have gone more smoothly. Monica was our day coordinator, and right off the bat you knew she had everything handled. She brought a smile to my face over and over that evening, from making sure my entire wedding party had a beer in hand SECONDS after we left the ceremony....to making sure my wife and I had salad and appetizers waiting for us at our table when we made our entrance. Every small detail was taken care of by her, and we could not be more grateful.

The cake and DJ which come as part of the package were both fantastic. The cake was delicious and the DJ made sure we had all the music that we wanted to hear played. The venue at night is like a whole new world. We are still getting compliments on how beautiful it was next to the koi pond.

I would absolutely recommend Karl Strauss as a wedding venue. I will have a smile on my face every time i drink one of their beers now!

My daughter was married at Karl Strauss Brewery Gardens over the weekend. She chose this place because of the value and what it included...having a cake (they went with the delicious Eidelweiss Bakery) and the DJ included was a huge bonus! You will receive a packet with suggestions for other vendors, we didn't use any of these because we had a friend do the photography and chose our own florist. I have to mention Lori from Blossoms Design...she did a fantastic job with the flowers and no one could tell they were made on a budget...really beautiful! Helen, the main event coordinator was wonderful and was always quick to reply to phone calls or emails. Monica, the coordinator the day of the rehearsal and wedding was beyond amazing! She helped make the whole day run smoothly. We were able to just enjoy the day without worrying about all the little details. The staff at Karl Strauss is so professional and everyone was friendly.

This venue is absolutely gorgeous! I know the pictures will be beautiful. It's such a pretty, intimate, cozy place for a wedding.The food was sooo good, the cake was yummy and the DJ kept the night going and everyone danced all night long. I can't say enough about this place...it exceeded my expectations and my daughter was glowing all night long from happiness. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a wedding venue....you won't be disappointed. Everyone raved about the venue and the food. If I could give more stars I would!

Where do I begin? from the moment we walked into this place we we're greeted with nothing but smiles. Everyone who seems to work here seems to be really really great at what they do! Helen who is the head banquet coordinator was just a delight to work with. She was always quick to respond to my phone calls and emails. I have to say with her charisma and charm it was nearly impossible to feel any stress when it came to planning our day! We where so blown away by how beautiful everything was on the day of our wedding. I couldn't have imagined it looking any better. But even better than the look of everything I couldn't grasp how they got away with everything going so smooth... I was told by many of my married friends "be prepared for things to go wrong on your wedding day, thats just what happens." Well none of my friends have been married at the Karl Strauss Brewery Gardens! Their team is on it when it comes to remembering every detail. I have to say I had so many friends tell me how great the food was and that my wedding was the most fun wedding they had ever been to. I happily agree!

Amazing place for a wedding. I had no idea this place existed and a girlfriend told me about it and it was exactly what we were looking for and in our price range. Helen was amazing to work with and Monica the day of wedding coordinator was hands down on top of everything. I have a few friends in the service industry who were at my wedding and complimented what a great team they had and they were on top of it. Not only a serene and beautiful place but great food and drinks as well. The day was amazing and I am thankful to the whole Karl Strauss team.

Look, I'm not the kind of guy who ever wrights 5 star reviews, but our Karl Strauss wedding was absolutely fantastic. Perfect price, great professional staff to hold your hand along the way. The package comes with an amazing (tasty) custom cake, a DJ (HUGE props to Sunset Mobile Music). The food was fantastic, the beer was great. The price was upfront from day one and we never felt like we where pushed into spending more money. We saved hundreds or maybe even thousands on decorations because the venue was that pretty. Parking was not an issue. Having a hotel across the street means we knew our guests where safe. Our pictures came out fantastic. Having the whole event in one cozy venue was so easy.

If you want a fun, modern wedding- please consider Karl Strauss.
