RHINELANDER - Rhinelander Brewing Company announced Friday it's welcoming guests back inside to enjoy some of the fresh beer on tap.
"With people at home more, drinking at home is becoming quite a pastime," said taproom manager Sara Martin. "I think people are ready to get out of their homes and come out and do that with friends."
The brewery is offering pints, flights, and pitchers. But taproom manager Sara Martin says some aspects of business will be slow to come back.
"Normally we do tours daily. Those are kind of on hold for now," said Martin. "We usually have a communal popcorn and we're not doing that right now."
Like many other local businesses, the brewing company relies on sales from summer tourism. To make sure it's a safe place for all, staff are following guidelines laid out by the WEDC.
"We have signs up asking people to be six feet apart from other parties. The staff will be wearing masks and sanitizing surfaces every couple of hours or so," said Martin.
Things are still a bit different, but Martin says staff are happy to be working and excited to get things back to normal.
"I think we're going to stand the test with our reopening today and we'll see how it goes from there," said Martin. "Most of the people that have come in have been really nice to us so we'll hope that continues."
