Is it safe: Axes and Alcohol?
It’s always “Beer 30” at Blade & Timber.* And because axe safety is our top priority, we always prioritize a positive environment for friends, families and coworkers to throw some axes…while also serving drinks. Feeling a little nervous about axes and alcohol? Here’s how we keep our guests safe:
Alcohol Safety Guidelines:
- Only 21+ Can Drink (obviously)
We check all guest IDs at the door. So, be sure to bring it. If you’re 21 or older, you can throw a few forward and toss a few back. Nice.
- Wristbands for Everyone
If you are 21 or older and planning to drink, a coach will wristband you with a green wristband after you’ve checked in and signed our waiver. Our wristband colors tell the coaches who can and can’t drink at Blade & Timber.
- Drink Limit
For all locations serving alcohol, guests 21+ may order and enjoy up to three drinks while throwing.* Each time we’re serving drinks, our coaches will hole-punch your wristband. If you want more than three drinks, put down the axe and we’ll give you a different wristband to enjoy drinks at our bar. In addition to limiting the number of drinks, all of our alcoholic beverages are limited in alcohol content – whether we’re mixing a cocktail or serving beer or wine. Our alcohol selection varies by location, so check your location’s page for details! For Seattle throwers, please note our 2-beer limit for now.
- Throw In the Lane, Drink At Your Seat
We know slinging the axe with one hand while you’re holding a drink in the other sounds like the perfect challenge, but that’s a pair we will always keep separate.
- Our Coaches Make the Final Call
While there is a drink limit, our coaches make the final call in our facilities. If a coach notices a guest drinking irresponsibly, the guest will lose their axe throwing privileges and be invited to throw axes at a later date. We call this our “no shenanigans” rule.
That’s it, it’s pretty simple. We’ve got your axe safety covered so that you can worry less & enjoy more. In 2019, we safely served combined axes and alcohol for more than 200,000 guests at Blade & Timber.
