Evil Czech Brewery gearing up to re-open their doors amid Coronavirus pandemic
MISHAWAKA, Ind.-- Monday, it will finally be business as usual at Evil Czech Brewery and Public House in Mishawaka.
“It’s definitely a good feeling to have some return to normalcy. Happy to be in there, slowly but surely," said server Job Pallatin.
Its been a week since step two of Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb's back on track plan was implemented.
Restaurants and bars that serve food may open at 50% capacity with operational limitations.
Bar seating will be closed with no live entertainment.
Servers and kitchen staff must wear face coverings.
So what will you see when you walk into Evil Czech for the next few weeks?
“For us in the kitchen, we’ve just multiplied what we’ve been trained to do by ten, fifteen fold. We’re constantly cleaning, constantly sanitizing, wearing masks. Every staff member in this building will be wearing masks," said Head Corporate Chef, Drew Sachau.
Just last week, the St. Joseph County Health Department released additional safety guidelines by implementing a health order.
Mishawaka Mayor Dave Wood tweeting the Princess City would not be enforcing it, but if you plan on dining at Evil Czech Brewery, they do have a request.
“Us as a business will encourage all of our guests to wear masks unless they’re eating a meal," said Sachau.
The restaurant is back to normal business hours from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
Hand sanitizing stations are readily available when you walk in, as well as throughout the restaurant.
If you're not comfortable with in-person dining just yet, they still offer curbside delivery.
