Visting a Brewery During COVID-19

We are still very much in the middle of a pandemic, and your tasting room experience is likely to be very different from the days of yore. Per North Carolina mandate, masks are required anytime you are not seated at your table, and establishments that serve alcohol for on-site consumption must cease alcohol sales and service at 11pm.

Many breweries are currently not accepting cash, with some only allowing cards or requesting payment through apps like Arryved, available for both Apple and Android phones. Plan accordingly!

Please be patient with and kind to brewery staff and each other, and make sure you're following rules that have been put in place to ensure staff and customer safety!

Remember the three Ws:

Okay, show me the beer!
