Breweries Permitted to Serve Beer Outdoors in Some Regions of NYS
June 4, 2020
Effective today, Thursday June 4th, breweries in regions of NYS that have entered Phase 2 of reopening are permitted to serve beer and food outdoors for on-premise consumption in compliance with the SLA’s reopening guidance.
This exciting news comes a week early for breweries and enthusiasts alike. Some breweries in NYS will begin to sell beer for on-premise consumption outdoors as early as today, and others are still preparing for your return.
The SLA has offered guidance for NYS breweries to have a successful reopening (see below.)
Please be considerate and respectful of the saftey & sanitation guidelines that breweries have put in place when you visit for a pint outdoors.
