Sonoma County Public Health Gives Green Light To Reopen!

Late last night, the Sonoma County Public Health Director, Dr. Sundari Mase, revised her order allowing restaurants to reopen for in-house dining effective June 6th!  The team and I are busy spending this weekend installing plexiglass barriers, rearranging/removing furniture at both pubs, and rehiring, on-boarding and training about 50 employees in preparation for opening Monday June 8th! With 6 feet distance between tables and no bar seating or standing room allowed, capacity has been greatly reduced at both locations, particularly Downtown. Therefore, we continue to strongly encourage ordering food and beer to go, especially if you are not yet comfortable dining out in public. In addition, we are taking advantage of the Dept. of Alcohol Beverage Control’s temporary allowance for....

COVID-19 Virus Update

On March 15th, Governor Gavin Newsom mandated some new restrictions in the state of CA to greatly minimize the spread of COVID-19 Coronavirus.  We support these new mandates and are in the process of shutting down and reducing operations in compliance with the Governor to help further reduce spread of the virus. Our Windsor Tasting Room and Tours will be CLOSED until further notice. Both Gift Shops will remain OPEN for bottles, growlers and merch to go. While the Governor did say that “brewpubs” would also need to close, we have clarification from his office that he was referring to Taprooms/Tasting Rooms, while brewery restaurants fall under the restaurant guidelines. Therefore, we have removed 50% of the seating from each....
