COVID-19 Taproom Updates
Last update on July 29, 2020:
As of 7/20/20- In an abundance of caution, we are closing the inside portion of our tasting room. We will still have both of our patios open and you will be allowed to come inside to order beer or use the restroom provided you are wearing a mask properly.
Our process change is in response to the current Hampton Roads spike in COVID cases. All of our employees are currently healthy and we need to keep it that way. We feel this helps us to protect our employees AND help slow the spread of this virus even if just a little.
Beginning 7/31/20- we will implement a last call at 915pm. Last beer poured will be 930pm with the condition that you will finish drinking your beer by the government cut off of 10pm. We don’t want to rush our guests, but we have to abide by these guidelines to stay in operation. We appreciate your cooperation and your understanding.
There are a couple of things that we feel we should reiterate based on feedback and questions we have received frequently:
Children are only allowed Sunday through Thursday. This is based off of seating demand and helps us maintain social distancing.
We do not currently take cash. This is not because we are participating in an underground conspiracy and we hate the cash money. It is because it is one of CDC best practices for slowing the spread of this virus.
Please do not move our furniture. It is placed in a way that both helps us maximize capacity and maintain social distancing.
We are strongly implementing social distancing and safety/disinfection guidelines.
- For the health and safety of our staff and other patrons, and per government order, masks/face coverings are required for anyone age 10 and up entering our building to order beer or visit the bathroom. We will not allow exceptions. If you do not have a mask with you, we have a limited amount of disposable masks available until they are gone. For those who do not wish to wear a mask or are unable to, please visit us online for pick up or delivery.
- Due to limited space and social distancing requirements, we only allow children with their parent Sunday-Thursday. Please have your child seated at all times. No wandering around allowed.
- Our Staff will seat guests appropriately as seating is limited. If seating is at capacity you are welcome to wait social distanced of course, or you can take beers to go!….updated hours below 👇
