Current Response to COVID-19Below we have listed the current services we are providing, what guidelines and expectations we have for customers and guests, and last but not least, what we are doing to keep our staff safe.
On 3/29, we learned of a COVID-19 exposure amongst our team. We worked with the Vermont Department of Health to address the situation. While they did not recommend that we close, we shut down onsite dining at the brewery out of an abundance of caution for four days. At this time, there is no reason to believe any recent guests are at risk.
We reopen today (4/2), confident that we are providing a safe environment for our guests and staff. All of our team members that are working were not exposed to COVID-19 and have been cleared by the Department of Health. We greatly appreciate your support and look forward to serving you.
