Brewpub in Canal Park reopening patio for 7-days a week “Lakeside-Casual” service Tuesday June 2nd, 2020: Canal Park Brewing Company announced new business hours and patio seating plan beginning on Friday June 5. The brewpub will be open from 11AM-8PM daily, and will host take-out, curbside, delivery, and limited ‘Lakeside-Casual’ patio seating service.
The brewpub located on the shore of Lake Superior has made many changes to adhere to the guidelines and mandates for heightened safety in the midst of the pandemic, including full staff wearing masks and gloves that are changed often, socially-distanced ordering lines and seating, and a strict sanitization schedule of all customer touchpoints, including door handles, beer coolers, bathrooms, and beyond.
As many businesses have had to adjust to fit the new Minnesota state standards for outdoor patio seating, CPB Co. has had to adjust service to a ‘Lakeside-Casual’ model. “We are beyond excited to have our friends and family back and enjoying the sun and lake with us,” says Director of Sales Alexa Sheldon. “We love our location on Lake Superior and Lakewalk, and we
hope to make the patio dining experience easier for guests to feel safe and taken care of on our patio, while still making it easy for guests to be mobile and able to explore our shoreline.”
The restaurant will be utilizing a hybrid service experience that includes a streamlined pre-pay system with single-use table numbers prior to seating, and a patio team that will bring out orders and accommodate guests’ additional food and drink orders. All food and drink will be delivered in recyclable to-go take-out boxes, and drinks will be served in recyclable plastic
glasses. “As a company, we are passionate about every detail of sustainability- from our solar panel-provided power, to the small sauce cups we provide for dips,” says Sheldon. “Choosing to go with disposable products to start off for our patio-only reopening was tough, but we realized that between having only outside seating and trying to provide the safest sanitary container options possible, single-use product was the way to go.”
From Monday June 1 to Thursday June 4, Canal Park Brewing Company will maintain its 4-8 hours for take-out, curbside, and delivery.
