Well, here we are. After three long, strange and weird months, we are reopening our taproom. After closing on 3/16, we felt it was appropriate to look at a mid-June reopening to give us time to properly reorganize our taproom, while deep cleaning and preparing for a new normal.
These decisions were not made lightly, and made with the best available information given to us while complying with the Direct Health Measures issued to us by Governor Ricketts. Anything denoted by *DHM means it’s the law. We have to comply with these DHMs or risk losing our privilege to serve our customers.
We ask our customers to be patient with us as we adjust to operating at 50% capacity. These plans are fluid and subject to change, yet we assure you we will maintain a safe and inviting environment for our customers.
How this goes is also dependent on you: if we have smooth sailing expect a much more robust reopening plan aiming for July 1. Thank you for your kindness, grace and support as we navigate these waters!
