11 Aug Our Goal is Fun During 2021
On Tuesday, our beer distribution company rolled a large semi-trailer up to our loading dock and took away a large load of kegs all destined for various accounts at the MN State Fair. For us, it is a vivid reminder 2021 is well over half over and an exciting bullet point of the return of at least some things from 2019.
It was exciting to believe that at the of 2020, everything would simply bounce back. With the Delta variant of COVID quickly spreading, and knowing even vaccinated people can get COVID and spread it to others, you will see masks again at Utepils. Our staff are required to wear them while working with customers and we are, currently, asking all patrons to please bring a mask and use it while interacting
with our team.
As you’ve read above, we also continue to create fun events at our Taproom.
With the first falling leaves in the Beer Garden, we are reminded to plan for the coming winter! We’ll once again embrace our Winter Garden idea and are talking about ideas of how to make it bigger, more fun, and more welcoming for you and your friends. I can also share that we’ve asked our team to bring new beers to market this fall and winter. More news to come.
While out of sight from most of our guests, we continue to invest in new equipment for our brewing department to improve quality, shelf life, and add packaging flexibility to our canning operation. The last is important because of the challenges of keeping supplies of empty cans to fill – which is a good problem to have. Thank you all for your ongoing support of Utepils at local liquor stores.
Geistoberfest Beer Trip Update: We’ve set the dates, October 1 st to 11 th , 2021. We’ve chosen almost all the exciting places we will visit. What we are still locking down are accommodations & logistics of getting around. We’re also watching how COVID is impacting travel to Europe. If we can move forward, I will send out a separate email and we publish on our social media channels the details including costs.
Our goal is fun. If makes sense to wait until 2022, we’ll wait. Europe will still be there and so will the beer. Whatever happens, please know that we know fun comes from being relaxed and that comes from feeling safe.
We will continue to keep your interactions with Utepils an indescribably good experience whether here at Utepils or wherever you choose to enjoy it.
Thank you again for your business and good vibes you send us.
