Update, May 17: We will be opening Monday, May 18, from 4-11PM. You all know the drill at this point, but just a heads up our capacity will be reduced by 50%, with no groups larger than 6. Unfortunately, we also have to change up how we use the taps. To stay in the clear of state regulations, our beertenders will have to pour your drinks for you.
To make this as easy as possible for everyone, we will be charging just $5 a pour (because we are bad at math), and you will not be shorted on your pours because of foam or other issues. On a brighter note, we have updated our food menu and will be offering some exciting new choices.
To keep everyone safe, we will go over additional state guidelines as you all arrive.
