Breweries, Bars & Restaurants Open for indoor seating Friday at 5 pm.
Kevin Atticks from Grow and Fortify, the manager for the Brewers Association of Maryland held a Town Hall for the brewing industry tonight at 8 pm. He summarized Governor Hogan’s press conference and corresponding Executive Order which allowed bars, restaurants, breweries, miniature golf and outdoor amusements and rides to open starting Friday at 5 pm. Next Friday, arcades, casinos and malls open.
One clarification is that bar patrons must be seated at a bar or table. Standing in the bar area is not permitted. The 6 foot social distancing guidelines are being recommended. Cultural events may be allowed which is good news for beer festivals. CDC guidelines must be followed so a cleaning protocol is needed before a bar or brewery can allow corn hole or darts inside their bars or breweries.
