Covid-19 Statement March 2020.
At Dungarvan Brewing Company we have been monitoring the Covid-19 outbreak closely and introduced best practise in line with the HSE Guidelines for the containment of the virus and the wellbeing of our staff and customers.
For this reason, we will be taking no visitors to the brewery, including tours, until the end of March, after which time we will reassess the situation. We are also working closely with West Waterford Festival of Food for an event we are planning to take place at the brewery in April, and will update on that in due course.
Our production is continuing as normal for the foreseeable future and only pre-arranged visitors for deliveries and collections will be allowed access the brewery, with universal measures in terms of hand washing, covering of coughs and sneezes and disinfecting of brewing equipment as well as office surfaces in place. We hope to have no interruption to the supply of our beer but have put preparations in place to shut down production should brewers feel unwell with symptoms and need to be isolated.
We will make further decisions on reinstating our brewery tours at the end of March based on guidance from relevant authorities and at this point are hopeful that we’ll start up our annual Summer Series again in May. Stay tuned to our social media accounts for details of dates and further updates.
