Art of Brewing _ COVID-19

Dear Art of Brewing customer,

We are closely watching as the global situation with COVID-19 continues to evolve. We want to let you know that we are taking this seriously and implementing extra precautions at the Art of Brewing.

Health and safety is a high priority for us.

Currently approximately 80% of Canadian cases are travellers or people who have been in close contact with travellers. If you belong to this group we ask you to delay your bottling appointment by at least 14 days after returning to the country or meeting other travellers.

 For now we remain open, and will do our best to ensure everyone’s health and well being in our store. Beside our rigorous cleaning and sanitation procedures for wine making, beer making and our personal hygiene, we are taking the following steps:

 * frequent hand washing and sanitizing of all staff.

 * constant sanitizing of all high touch surfaces including our counters, carts, pay pads, door handles, equipment etc.

 * availability of hand sanitizer and/or gloves for all customers.

 * we will schedule our bottling appointments in such a way that there will be no more than 1 bottler at a time.

If you don’t want to come into town or in our store, please call and we can discuss your bottling options.

As the COVID-19 situation is quickly changing, we will keep you updated on any further developments.

Hope to see or hear from you soon,

Breg & Maarten
