Regarding Limited Taproom Operations Due to Coronavirus

Following the recent emergency declaration, we are resuming a take-away only service, initially until at least February 7th, 2021. Depending on further government announcements or recommendations, this may be further extended and so we recommend that customers check this page as well as our Facebook page.  The following precautionary measures will be kept in place:

The 2F area will remained closed until further notice

The 1F taproom area will maintain a plastic protective screen between the customer and the staff area.
Customers are still requested to queue outside and attempt to maintain a 2 metre distance from one another. We would like to request that customers wear masks and use the provided alcohol spray before entering. Within the taproom itself, one waiting customer is allowed to wait in addition to the customer at the register.

As part of our takeaway service, kitchen cars will also sometimes be visiting.  Our weekly Thursday Facebook posts will provide updates on which kitchen cars will visit and when.

Drinking will not be allowed within the 1F taproom itself, and customers not waiting to be served either within the taproom or by a kitchen car, are asked to move offsite in a timely fashion to avoid close proximity and risk of contagion.

We will be selling offering the following items for sale:

  • Bottles
  • Growlers
  • Merchandise (T-shirts, bottle openers, glassware, etc.)
  • Draft beer, offered in plastic cups for take away only

Please be reminded that for environmental reasons we do not offer plastic bags so please bring something to take your bottles and growlers away with you.

We thank you for your understanding through this difficult time. Those who wish to stay safe at home can also have our beer shipped to arrive right at their door through our online shop.
