In an effort to blunt the impact of the novel coronavirus disease, or COVID-19, health experts and public officials across the country are strongly recommending practices of social distancing—staying home as much as possible, avoiding crowds, keeping distance from others. Leaders with the City of St. Louis, St. Louis County, St. Charles County and Franklin County came together – while practicing social distancing themselves – Tuesday afternoon to make the joint announcement. Beginning at 12:01am on Friday March 20th restaurants and bars only will be able to offer delivery, drive-thru, carry out and curbside service. The ban also applies to food courts, coffee houses and any other public food establishments. As for drink establishments, the ban also applies to breweries, wineries, clubs, tasting rooms and any other place that officers alcoholic beverages for on-site consumption.
Food and drink locations can allow up to 10 members of the public inside at one time to pick up their items, but they all must be standing at least six feet apart.
The order will stay in place until further notice.
The goal is to “flatten the curve” of infections, so that the country’s health care system is not severely overloaded during the crisis—a situation that would lead to more deaths.
Our Team at Missouri Beer Company are working hard to comply with the mandate. All events are on hold until further notice.
We will be updating our website with ammended hours of operation and information on curbside to-go ordering.
Thank you for your patience and patronage during these hard times. Please check out our Facebook page for frequent updates.
Please stay safe. We will get through this crisis together.
