A note on Michigan, COVID, and Mandatory Contact Tracing

As a neighborhood brewery we love to make beer, and we love to see you enjoy it. We can’t thank our friends, neighbors, and fans for all the support we’ve had the last several months. It has been challenging adapting to the seemingly never-ending hurdles thrown at us during the COVID-19 period. Starting with mandatory closing, then came reduced capacity & additional separation, ingredient shortages, and now contact tracking requirements have really thrown wrench into everything.

It goes without saying, collecting all our customer’s information is not on, let alone at the top of the list of things we want to do. However, effective today (November 2, 2020) the State of Michigan Department of Health and Human Services now requires us to obtain basic contact information from all of our guests prior to serving them. The information we collect will be kept private (it will not be used for market purposes unless you ask us to keep you up to date with what is happening at the brewery), it will not be sold to any third parties, and it will only provided to the State of Michigan as required.

The collection of this information is required by MDHHS, failure comply can result in a misdemeanor with fines up to $1,000 per occurrence, as well as the potential loss of our operating license.

Now, let’s get back to what we love, making and serving tasty brews to our guests. Stay tuned for more (good news) announcements later this week.
