Cfb4428f409575c5e5bea6715df389d3 F7ec81bee

We heard from the Rhode Island Brewers Guild, which was concerned about our local Rhode Island breweries getting back on their feet during this tough time. There are thirty Rhode Island breweries, and many of them have decided to do curbside-pickup-only for customers, so they can minimize contact, but some are starting to open their doors for indoor and outdoor distanced seating. Gary Richardson is the executive director of the Rhode Island Brewers Guild, and Justin Tisdale of Apponaug Brewing is the president, and they worked together to gather all of this information from local breweries. We’re sharing it with you to help keep them all in business during this difficult time. Find out what they are doing, who’s open and who’s closed, and who has takeout options available for food.

Note: This list is subject to change. Please consult social media accounts or contact the individual breweries to confirm before visiting. Indoor/Outdoor seating available only at designated breweries and all brewpubs.

Screening: According to Phase 2 rules, guests will be screened upon their arrival.  

Table Setup: The tables will be set up on the Shaidzon Beer Garden in the middle facing East to West (building to train tracks) and spaced 8 feet apart from table edge to table edge. There is an umbrella in the middle of the table. There will be a barrel on each end.  

Walkways: Along the fence/train tracks side is for walking toward the tables from the ramp. Along the building is for walking toward the ramp. One barrel is for the Shaidzon bartender to drop off ordered items, and the other barrel is for the bartender to pick up items from the table. The barrels will also provide an additional distancing measure from the bartender to the guests.  

Ordering Process: When settled at their reserved table, guests can order their beers by completing a provided beer form to give the quantities they would like of the beers available. The forms will be placed on the train tracks side barrel to be picked up by a Shaidzon bartender. The Shaidzon bartender will return with the beer and place it on the building side barrel.  

Checking Out: When checking out, a Shaidzon bartender will take a single credit card from the table to cover the tab for the table. The booking fee will be discounted from the total amount of the tab. The card provider will inform the bartender of the tip amount they wish to give, and provide  

permission to proceed without a signature, so that guests do not touch the point of sale computer.
