State says breweries, wineries can open today

(North Carolina Craft Brewers Guild)

 In accordance with new guidance issued by the Governor’s Office, North Carolina’s breweries, taprooms, and brewpubs will be able to open at 5 p.m. today. We’d like to thank Governor Cooper and his staff for working with the NC Craft Brewers Guild to provide the needed clarification to allow our industry to reopen in a safe manner.

NC breweries have always been leaders in promoting the health and safety of our communities and will continue to do so as we begin to reopen our businesses. As breweries are already experts in sanitation and food safety standards, we will set the example for how to conduct operations that keep our customers and our employees safe.

The #NCBeer Pledge is our industry’s demonstration of that commitment to you. When you see the Pledge displayed, you will know that your local taproom is in compliance with NCDHHS and CDC guidance, and has taken the necessary precautions to provide you with the reassurance that your health and safety are first priority.

The second part of the Pledge is our customers’ commitment to the community. We are asking our customers to take the #NCBeer Pledge for the safety of our staff, friends, and neighbors. We all have a role to play in protecting the common good and keeping everyone safe from the spread of COVID-19.

We look forward to serving the community in a safe and responsible manner.  We appreciate Governor Cooper and NC DHHS’ leadership, support and confidence in our industry.

    I’d rather our seniors get a graduation then drunks getting their beer. But as long as we have our priorities straight. As a society we feel it is more important for people to know their bar has been sanitized then address real issues. smh
    “NC breweries have always been leaders in promoting the health and safety of our communities and will continue to do so as we begin to reopen our businesses” Is alcohol a health food now? Wow and safety… hmmm DUIs… fried bar food… Don’t get me wrong I enjoy going out and I enjoy alcohol just like any other fat American but I do not think breweries should be a priority right now. I believe in health over wealth

    So brewpubs can open but not bars? I’m thinking of the locals place on Colington Rd. I’m sure the owner is not happy about this.
