An update of the taproom board can only mean one thing: we are finally prepared to reopen the taproom! As of this weekend, after almost 90 days of prolonged closure, we will now be serving beer for consumption on the premises.
Here at FMB, we are beyond ecstatic to once again serve our patrons in-house, whom with great patience and understanding have continued to support our business through these strange times. We must, however, address some important caveats to our reopening process:
1) When can I come to the taproom to grab a delicious and refreshing craft beer?
Starting this weekend, we will be observing the following weekly hours in the taproom:
Wednesday: 3pm - 8pm
Thursday: 3pm - 8pm
Friday: 3pm - 8pm
Saturday: 12pm - 8pm
Sunday: 12pm - 5pm
2) Where can I sit to enjoy my tasty beverage?
We have spent the earlier part of this month preparing an outdoor patio space, adjacent to the taproom, to accommodate your seating needs. Fortunately, nothing pairs better with our beer than a bit of fresh air!
3) Are there measures in place that promote social distancing?
As per state-mandated guidelines, parties will be limited to 8 per table. Unfortunately, parties will not be permitted to commingle with each other. All beer will be served in plastic, disposable cups for your safety and convenience. Each table will be furnished with a bottle of sanitizer spray, and the bartender will clean and disinfect each table additionally in between parties. All staff will be wearing masks while operating behind the bar, and we recommend that our customers use masks at their own discretion (and though it goes without saying, wash your hands often and stay home if you feel sick!)
4) Plastic cups, you say? What if I want to order a flight?
We've got you covered. Our plastic cups come in 4oz-size as well.
5) Can I drink my to-go 4-pack out on the patio?
While situated outside, the patio space acts as an extension of the indoor taproom. Drinking to-go beer is not permitted within the taproom, nor will it be permitted in the patio space.
6) Can I bring food to eat while out on the patio?
Yes! As always, we encourage our customers to bring food to eat while drinking our beer. Feel free to pack a picnic or order in from any of the number of local restaurants that offer delivery.
If you have any other questions, feel free to come in and talk to our bartenders!
