We have to add wineries to this as well. Great news for more local businesses.

Over the last few months, local craft beer companies, and distilleries have been able to be open for carrying-out only, but Governor Murphy announced today that New Jersey Breweries, Distilleries, and wineries can offer outdoor seating areas to their customers so they can drink on-premises, and enjoy themselves with their friends.

Breweries, wineries, and distilleries would be allowed to use decks, patios, sidewalks, and parking lots as long as they are accessible from the serving establishment and are in compliance with social distancing requirements.

In a news release today, NJ Attorney General stated:

As New Jersey’s bars and restaurants reopen sit-down service to patrons, we are doing everything we can to help meet their needs to serve patrons while also complying with the social distancing requirements in place to prevent a resurgence of COVID-19"

This will go into effect on June 15th, which is when restaurants can offer outdoor dining. Outdoor tables must be at least six feet apart, and social distancing must be maintained

Congratulations once again to Source Brewing in Colts Neck!! They were this year’s winner of Brewmaster Madness. We haven't been able to stop by to congratulate them. We will be going there very soon I have a feeling!!
