Message from Co-Founders, Brian Borngesser & Pat Rains

First of all, thank you for all of your support through these trying times. We are once again proud and honored to be a part of this great community!

We wanted to reach out and let you all know about plans to slowly and cautiously reopen our doors. We want you all to know that these decisions are not taken lightly and that we always want the safety and welfare of our patrons and staff to come first.

The first step of our reopening has been to do a “soft launch” of our outside patio area. Tables have been adequately spaced 6 feet apart, bathrooms are on a one in one out system, the staff is equipped with PPE, and sanitizer is flowing freely. We are following and enforcing State and Local guidelines.

This weekend we will add additional seating in the backhouse with properly spaced tables and open garage doors. Our To-Go service will remain, but pick up will be moved to the upstairs garage door in the main parking lot during operating hours on Saturday and Sunday from 12 pm- 6 pm.

We understand that for some, it is too early, and for others, we should have never closed. We are doing our best to navigate these uncharted waters and ask for your patience and understanding as we try to make the best and most informed decisions.

New Rules:

  • No groups larger than 10 per 300 square feet

  • All staff will wear masks

  • Patrons must stand 6 feet apart while in line

  • Bathrooms will be a 1 in 1 out use only

  • Do not come to the taproom while you’re sick

If you are ready to come see us, we are ready to have you back! We strive to comply with all state and local guidelines as well as our own safety precautions, we reserve the right to ask anyone to leave if they are not in compliance with these rules to preserve the safety of ALL of our employees and customers.

These are hard rules to enforce and we will be doing our best to remind anyone not following these rules. If someone is unable to abide by our rules, we will be forced to ask them to leave. We do not enjoy enforcing rules, but it is mandatory for us to do so in order to operate.

Once again, we thank you for your support and patience during these tough times. We look forward to exploring the “new normal” with you and seeing all of your faces soon!!
