Beer and Boards FAQs

What is StickyBottoms’ The Original Beer & Boards?

Beer & Boards is a unique experience during which you get to paint a design of your choice on reclaimed wooden boards.  The event entertains both individuals and groups – with access to enjoy the hosting location’s brew!  No prior experience needed as your instructor will guide you along the way and once you’re done, you get to keep your board!

Brushes & Boards, our family-friendly version, offers the same experience – just without access to adult beverages, obviously!

Where do you get the boards?

We use both recycled palettes and solid repurposed pine, birch or plywood.  Our wood is sourced from local builders and even purchased from non-profit community groups (such as Habitat for Humanity).  The wood is custom-cut, sanded and finished by hand to form each of our canvases.  As a result, our hand-built canvases have a more rustic look to them.

What designs can I paint?

You can choose from one of our many designs, or let us know if you have something custom in mind!  Our design options can be found here: Google Drive Paint Examples.  You can also select a size, base color and wood finish for your board.

Can I request a custom design? 

YES!  We love new designs.  Let us know, and we will do our best to accommodate.

What should I bring to a Sticky Bottoms B&B event? 

Yourself and your enthusiasm!  Dress comfortably.  We will provide aprons.  

What is your refund policy?

Our events are planned in advance with a pre-paid registration.  If you must cancel, you will be able to attend another scheduled event.  Our refund policy is due to the limited seats at our events and due to the customization and preparation involved.  Contact us with any questions.

What if I have other questions, or need to contact the organizer?
