Alcohol and Bar Service

The Hive Catering Co. (Hive) is happy to provide the service of our full bar to your event. However, to promote responsible use, the following guidelines have been established:

1. No beverages from other sources (except unopened bottles of wine) may be brought onto the premises or event. The Hive Catering Co. serving staff will serve outside wine approved for the event, corkage fees may apply.
2. The Hive Catering Co., its management and service personnel, reserve the right to verify proof of age of any guest requesting an alcoholic beverage and to discontinue service to anyone deemed impaired or unable to produce proof of age as required by the Oregon Liquor Control Commission. We will card anyone 30 years and younger.
3. A licensed Hive employee (having current OLCC permit) must serve all alcoholic beverages.
4. Guests will be asked for ID every-time when ordering alcohol, whether from a server or at the bar directly.
5. Acceptable ID is: State issued photo ID (ie Drivers License), Govt, issued military ID with photo, birthday, etc., Valid passport. All of these ID's must be current, not expired.
6. When serving alcohol at an event we will have one serving staff per 20-25 guests, plus bartender(s).
7. All The Hive Catering Co. staff at outside events will be in The Hive Catering Co. uniform.
8. When ordering alcoholic beverages at a bar, ID of all parties will need to be seen.
9. At outside events, where plastic cups are used. Cups of different colors and size will be used for alcohol and non-alcoholic beverages, (ie 16oz cups clear for beer, 12oz solid color for soda).

Table Service: Only licensed The Hive Catering Co. staff will take orders and service alcohol at tables. Proper Id will be required from each person ordering. ID will be checked on all looking 30 years and younger. Again we will have one server per 20-25 guests.  Bottles of alcohol will not be allowed on the table for self service.

Confined Area: If catering an event with a confined area for alcohol consumption we will post a The Hive Catering Co. staff (licensed) at the entrance checking ID of anyone under the age of 30. Guests over the age of 21 with valid ID will be given an identification bracelet. Only guests wearing these bracelets will be allowed in this area.  Patrons will not be able to leave the area with alcohol

Walk Around Event (21 and older): Prior to entering the event all guests will present ID to prove they are 21 and over. Bartenders and licensed serving staff will check ID’s of all guests prior to serving alcoholic beverages.  Only one drink per person will be allowed to be ordered. All staff will monitor alcohol consumption carefully to prevent over service.

Walk Around Mixed Age: A licensed staff member will check ID at the entrance and issue bracelets to guests 21 and over. Guest with bracelets can order drinks from the bartender. One drink per guest at a time.  We will have 1 staff member per 20-25 guests. Non alcoholic beverages will be in distinctly different cups than alcoholic beverages.
