Amended Opening of the Brewery Tap
Following the advice issued by the Government yesterday and their decision to advise people to avoid “non essential” contact and places like pubs and theatres, we have regrettably made the decision that the brewery will now be open on Saturdays for off sales only. This was not a decision that we have taken lightly but the safety of our members, volunteers and their family and friends, many of which are in the at risk group, is paramount. What has also made this such a decision is due to the fact that are community benefit society and one of the unexpected and most pleasing aspects is that we have become our own small community where new friendships have been forged.
The logistics of how we are going to manage this are still unclear but the committee are working on a plan so that bottle and cask sales can continue as normal. We initially think we will open at 12:00 hrs. We hope to be able to offer a home delivery service, are looking at take home containers for our cask range, a gift voucher scheme and thinking of ways that we can support other small independent retailers and our community.
The Covid 19 situation is rapidly changing and there is no doubt this is going to be a difficult time for many small independent retailers many of whom have become our friends. We all need your support more than ever so when possible let’s give these smaller businesses our custom.
If you have concerns please ensure you keep up to date with and follow the latest guidelines issued by the NHS, Public Health England and the Government.
