  • Brewery and Taproom Response Posts

    Here I'll collect a bunch of social media and blog posts from brewpubs and taprooms. Posts of support, reiterating cleanliness, and sometimes a little levity. If you see others, feel free to reply and call out any high points, innovative ideas, etc.

          Brewery Ommegang


          In light of the rapidly changing circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak, the Brewery Ommegang Tap House in Cooperstown will be closed until through April 3rd.

          One of the greatest gifts of our job as beer-makers is that of bringing people together, and this difficult decision has not been taken lightly, but the health and well-being of our employees and our customers is our primary concern.

          We look forward to a day in the near future when we’ll once again raise a glass with you. Until then, our production teams will continue to brew and package the beer we all know and love.

          Thank you for your understanding. Stay well.

                          Jester King

                          March 12, 2020
                          Anne Claire Brewer
                          It has been our privilege to have guests from all over the world visit Jester King for the past ten years. As we grow, we love continuing to provide each guest with not only beer and food, but a unique experience that simply cannot be replicated anywhere else. Many of you have seen us evolve from a quaint taproom in the Hill Country to the bustling farm and restaurant we are today. We could never have gotten this far without the continued support of each and every one of you. Our “friends of Jester King” are at the heart of everything we do, which is why it is of utmost importance that our brewery, farm, and kitchen remains a safe place where everyone can continue relaxing, drinking, and enjoying the Hill Country scenery.
                          We, along with many other businesses, share the responsibility of minimizing the risks of COVID-19, or Coronavirus, as new cases are diagnosed across our country. The health of our guests and staff are our primary concern and we will continue to take all precautions advised by the Center for Disease Control. We must also consider the harm that this outbreak could have on our small businesses in Texas. For many of us, Jester King is not just a job, but rather our livelihood and how we all provide for ourselves and our families. We saw it best for the leaders of our company to meet and discuss actions we will take to stay healthy and fully operational:
                          - Any symptoms of illness must be reported to management as soon as possible.
                          - Hand-washing instructions have been issued to each staff member and are displayed at every sink with an ample supply of hand soap and hand towels.
                          - All staff must refrain from touching their face, eyes, nose, beard or any other body part while on shift. Hands must be washed and sanitized immediately after touching has occurred.
                          - Staff must not put their hands in glasses, even when wearing gloves. Avoid all contact with the rim of glasses.
                          - Hand sanitizer (+60% ethanol) will be available at each bar for staff and guests to use.
                          - All coughs and sneezes must be covered by the pit of the elbow or a tissue that is immediately disposed of.
                          - Any guest wishing to avoid close contact with others is encouraged to patronize one of our bars that are completely outdoors in open air that is constantly ventilated.
                          We hope to withstand any decline in business this may bring by conscientiously following these measures and keeping the spirit of Jester King alive in these challenging times. We are also staying alert, listening to all updates from medical professionals with each new day. We want Jester King to continue being a place to get away from the stresses we endure each week to gather over world class food and beer with friends and family.
                          Our hearts go out to the growing number of people around the world who are or have been directly affected by COVID-19. We admire the bravery, expertise, and selflessness required to be a medical professional during this time. To all of you who have supported us throughout the past decade, cheers, and we hope to see you out on the farm soon.

                              Monk's Kettle (SF, CA) - Email

                              Some notes
                              -- driving people to delivery apps
                              -- removing seats to allow social distancing
                              -- call out that small businesses still need their customers

                              We are a public gathering place and as such, we at the Monk's Kettle are hyper-aware of the responsibility we bear to ensure the health & safety of our customers and the greater community. We are following the news and the latest health/social guidelines to make sure that we are doing our part.
                              We have always followed proper procedures for hand washing and other sanitary protocols. But this is a time to return to first principles and enhance all our procedures. Among them:
                              First and foremost, frequent (read: constant) hand washing using the WHO method. It (should) go without saying that this is our modus operandi all the time, but to be sure, we have reviewed the proper hand washing technique with all staff members. We also have alcohol-based sanitizer at all stations for even more frequent disinfection.
                              Using disinfectant wipes and a bleach spray solution, we are starting each day by disinfecting all surfaces in the kitchen, behind the bar, on the floor and in our office. Bleach products are used on all doorknobs, cooler handles, touchscreens, pens, tap handles, faucets, light switches, furniture, phones...(you get the idea)...
                              We have instructed all staff members to stay away from work if they are exhibiting any cold-like symptoms (again, our M.O., but we are being vigilant about this). We participate in SF's sick pay program, which encourages employees to stay home when ill by removing financial disincentives for not working.
                              Lastly, we have removed one of our tables and a portion of our bar stools to allow for a more comfortable, and social-distant environment, to help keep you all as safe as possible.
                              Small Businesses Still Need You

                              This is an incredibly difficult time for all. But we at Monk's Kettle, and all the other small businesses out there, still need your support to survive. As noted above, we're taking the health and safety of you and all of our staff extremely seriously. Our aim is to make our restaurant a clean and sanitary safe haven -- you're home away from home.
                              So please be smart and safe, and stay healthy. But also please continue to support your local small business community. Without you, that community cannot survive.
                              Food Delivery Apps

                              While we do encourage you to join us at the restaurant, we understand that many of you are hunkering down. But if you still want a burger or chicken sandwich, you can get one through any of the various delivery apps with which we partner:
                              Note that Caviar has a mini version of our beverage (beer and wine) list.
