Jack Pine Brewery Enforces Safety Measures to Prevent Another Statewide Closure
After seeing a decline in sales during the recent stay-at-home order, staff members at a local brewery in Baxter say they will do whatever they can to enforce safety measures to prevent another statewide closure.
A few weeks ago, Lakeland News visited Jack Pine Brewery during the stay-at-home order, and owner Patrick Sundberg was unsure if his brewery would make it through the pandemic. Sundberg relies on sit-in service for 75% of his business, and since restrictions have been lifted, he is now seeing patrons returning.
Staff members are doing multiple things to ensure the well-being of customers, such as providing hand sanitizer, wearing masks, wiping down tables, and creating a walk area to safely social distance.
As COVID-19 cases continue to increase across the state, some business owners worry that another stay-at-home order will go into effect, and Sundberg says he would require masks to be worn, so that his business and other area businesses can remain open.
