COVID Update and Temporary Closure

June 20, 2020

Update: As of June 25, all production staff (non-customer facing) have tested negative for COVID. All employees on site at the brewery have tested negative as well. The brewery will re-open for both on-site consumption and curbside on July 1, in accordance to all Phase 2 regulations.


Original Post: Late yesterday, June 19th, one of our Great Raft Brewing employees tested positive COVID-19. This employee learned of their potential exposure on Monday, June 15th and placed themselves in self-quarantine while awaiting test results.

Out of an abundance of caution for our community and employees, we are taking immediate action and closing the Great Raft Brewing Tasting Room and our production facility to allow for immediate testing of all Great Raft Brewing employees. While we are confident in our daily social distancing and sanitation efforts, we will also be conducting an additional full sanitation of all Great Raft Brewing facilities.

  • If you had a reservation to visit the tasting room, a refund will be issued today (Saturday, 6/20). If you don’t receive your refund and/or an email from Great Raft Brewing in 24 hours, please email us.
  • If you placed an order for to-go beer or need to submit a last minute order, curbside is available on Saturday, 6/20 from 12-5 pm. All curbside and to-go business will be suspended after that time window.

We are taking the strongest measures possible to ensure the safety of our customers and employees. We’ll re-open when it is deemed safe to do so. Please check our website and stay-tuned to social media for updates and news regarding re-opening. We appreciate your patience. Please direct any questions to And don’t forget to please continue to support Great Raft Brewing at local bars, restaurants and stores.
