Bars, Brewpubs, Breweries, and Pubs Remain Open if They Are Offering Sit-Down, Outdoor Dine-In Meals; Takeout, Curbside Pickup, Shipping and Delivery Also Remain Permitted

Per State officials, “Bars, brewpubs, breweries, and pubs must close all operations both indoor and outdoor statewide, unless they are offering sit-down, outdoor dine-in meals. Alcohol can only be sold in the same transaction as a meal.”

In other words, indoor sit-down meals and/or beverage service and on-site seating for alcoholic beverage service, only, even if outdoors, are prohibited.

Breweries with restaurant operations, for example, are able to continue offering outdoor dining, takeout, and curbside pickup. Shipping and delivery-based operations may continue, as well.
The Order was also not intended to prohibit breweries from brewing beer, which is considered an essential food manufacturing activity.
