Rules

BEER GARDEN & IGLOO RULES

Part of safe operations is strictly following CDC guidelines about social distancing and prevention hygiene, such as frequently washing one’s hands and wearing face coverings, as well as cleaning and disinfecting public spaces.  Anyone that does not recognize and value the benefit of these steps for our community should stay home.  Anyone that does not respect our other guests and staff by following the rules outlined below will be asked to leave.

Our beautiful outdoor space gives us a unique opportunity to far exceed standard social distancing guidelines that will keep both our guests and staff safe and comfortable.  We’re excited to bring you this environment, however, some things will not look the same.

We ask that you please read and follow these Beer Garden rules, and encourage you to share them with friends and family that may plan to visit Hop Lot throughout the year.  We will adapt as conditions and requirements change, so please follow us on Facebook, Instagram, sign up for our newsletter, and visit our website to get the latest updates.  We anticipate our phone will be busy.

Thank you in advance for your patience, cooperation, and understanding as we all endeavor to get through these trying times together…in unity and with beer.
