Blackbird Bar Catering was established in the rolling hills of Craftsbury, Vermont in the early Spring of 2013. As a fully licensed and insured bar catering company, Blackbird can travel anywhere in Vermont, and will help make any celebration unique by working closely with you to create the best beverage menu for your event- weddings, rehearsals, birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, grand openings, festivals, barbeques...

The hundreds of craft beers brewed right here in Vermont make selecting the right brews for your event a fun challenge!

Pairing beer and wine with food can be a daunting task, but Blackbird can simplify this for you. There are a number of Vermont wines available, along with tens of thousands of other varieties offered by our distributors!

Spirits of any variety are purchased from a number of locations. There are many Vermont distilleries that offer a fantastic selection of small batch artisan spirits, and Blackbird will work with any budget to offer a variety of affordable and custom made cocktails to please your guests!

Weekly shipments from a dozen different distributors are available, which makes providing the selected beer, wine, and non-alcoholic beverages simple.  All storage and preparation is now held at the Vermont Food Venture Center in Hardwick, VT.
