Smartmouth's Response to COVID-19

The health and well-being of our customers, staff, and community is our top priority. We have been taking every precaution to ensure the safety of our customers by enhancing our already stringent cleaning procedures and following the CDC’s best practices for COVID-19 prevention. 

We appreciate all who are doing their part to flatten the curve and those who have shown their support for local and independent businesses while we continue to weather this storm. Stay tuned for updates, and know that we appreciate your patience while we continue to adapt to these challenging circumstances. 

To everyone fighting the good fight out there – we support you and send our love. We have no doubt we will emerge from this tremendously difficult time stronger and more united as a community.


COVID-19 Policy – updated Sept 2021

Our entire staff is fully vaccinated but has chosen to wear masks while working in the tasting rooms to protect themselves and our guests.

every day

Fully vaccinated guests are welcome inside and outside at both locations with mask wearing optional.

Unvaccinated or partially vaccinated guests are welcome at both locations as long as masks are worn while not seated at a table.

indoor events / live music 

To ensure the safety of our staff, patrons, performers, and vendors, we are requiring proof of vaccination for entry into all indoor events, free and ticketed, at both locations. Events that will require proof of vaccination will be advertised as such and there will be signage clearly indicating which parts of the brewery (if not all) will require proof of vaccination.

* Name on vaccination card must match name on a valid state issued or military ID.
* Proof may be in the form of a vaccination card or a photo of the card.
* Full vaccination must be completed no less than 2 weeks before the date of the event.
* Negative Covid-19 tests are not accepted as a means of entry for unvaccinated patrons.

outdoor events

For Smartmouth’s large outdoor events, masks will be required at all times inside the tasting rooms and restrooms – regardless of vaccination status. Events that will require masks indoors will be advertised as such and there will be signage clearly indicating where masks are required.
