Our focus is and will always be on the safety of our staff and guests, so we do need to announce some rules and best practices for those joining us for a round or stopping by to pick up beers to-go. Many of these are mandated by the Commonwealth of Virginia or recommended by the Virginia Craft Brewers Guild, while others are particular to our specific layout. The full list of rules can be found here.
