Sam Adams announced today that it's closed its tap room next to Faneuil Hall to on-site patrons over Covid-19 concerns caused by having too many patrons from places where the virus is out of control.
The brewery had re-opened the patio there just three weeks ago; it remains open for contact-less pickup by people who order beer online.
Upon further reflection, we have made a tough decision. Due to the influx of out-of-state visitors from COVID-19 hotspots to our taproom, we are closing our rooftop patio out of an abundance of caution for our guests and coworkers. While we love welcoming visitors to the taproom, we also know we need to do our part to keep everyone as safe as possible.
Starting this week, the Samuel Adams Boston Taproom will be closed to outdoor seating and on-site enjoyment.
Massachusetts has asked people arriving here from outside New England, New York and New Jersey to self quarantine for two weeks after they arrive here, but has never done anything to try to ensure they do so.
