Nortons Brewing Company garden igloos are back for a unique outdoor experience
People love alfresco dining and unique experiences that provide a fun and relaxed atmosphere. This is exactly what Norton Brewing Company provides with their garden igloos which were introduced last year. Good news, they are back this winter!
Garden igloos are basically plastic domes that are heated inside and provide seating to protect you from the elements. Norton’s has a lot of these installed in their beer garden and it’s one of the coolest things to do in Wichita.
This year, they built floating bridges that anyone can sit on, as well as upgraded their covers and doors for them. They also added more play in each of them and equipped them with better tables, lights and cushions. Overall, they are now more aesthetic. Full food / cocktail / beer menus will be available, with full service dedicated to each.
Garden igloos can accommodate up to six people. Each igloo has its own electric fireplace, a dedicated bluetooth speaker, a small table, and plenty of seating for your party.
Booking them was easy and something that needs to be done in advance as they are booked quickly. If you want, you can go to their website and book yours there. A non-refundable deposit of $ 25 is required for all reservations. Reservations are made in 1.5 hour increments. If you wish to reserve the igloo for 3 hours, a minimum of $ 300 of food / drink is required plus a non-refundable deposit of $ 50. With a party of six, that shouldn’t be too difficult to achieve. Our party bill after an hour and a half was $ 200.
A few other things to note: The igloos are for 21+, no pets and no smoking inside. You must arrive 10 minutes before the time of your reservation. Everyone in your group should be present when they sit you down. And finally, your group should be on one check with an automatic 20% tip. When we retired, we simply handed our cards over to our server and asked them to share the bill equally. It’s so much easier than breaking everything with who had food and drink.
We had an amazing time inside the igloo when we stopped by last year and can’t wait to see them again this year. Check out the new igloo photos below!
