“We didn’t really have a choice other than to open,” says Ted Rosenau. “You try to plan for everything, but you can’t plan for a pandemic.”

Rosenau talked with CBJ about the brewery’s debut and how the partners have been navigating Covid-19. Read the full story and check out photos of the space here.
