CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WBTV) - A Charlotte brewery is temporarily closing its taproom because of safety precautions related to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Starting Tuesday, Dec. 1, Sycamore Brewing Company, located on Hawkins Street, will close its taproom operations until further notice, the company announced on social media.

“Due to COVID-19 safety precautions, we have offered an outdoor-only experience since early Spring, and as the weather has turned colder, this option has become less feasible,” Sycamore Brewing said in a statement.

Sycamore Brewing Company owners say they hope to resume taproom operations “sometime early in the new year.”

“We are extremely thankful for the support we have seen from our Charlotte community in this very strange and difficult time,” owners said. “Through every closure and pivot, you—our loyal Sycamore fans—have always been there to continue to support the brewery, and we are immensely grateful.”

Sycamore Brewing Company says it will still operate delivery and pickup options while the taproom is closed.

“Fresh, tasty Sycamore beer is always available at grocery stores, specialty stores, and bottle shops all over the Carolinas, Virginia, Georgia, Kentucky and soon in Tennessee, West Virginia & Ohio as well!” owners said. “We appreciate your continued support through your purchase of Sycamore cans.”
