Lagunitas’ Chicago Taproom Likely Closed All of 2021

Lagunitas’ Chicago Taproom plans on remaining closed for all of 2021. The move is a product of the on going COVID-19 pandemic.

On Thursday, Lagunitas announced that their Chicago tap room will not be opening to the public in 2021. Lagunitas still has concerns with the on going COVID-19 pandemic.

Lagunitas CMO, Paige Guzman, said she would “be surprised” if it reopened this year due to concerns about virus spread.

On a more positive note, “Lagunitas is exploring whether to open an outdoor pop-up taproom this summer in a neighborhood with ample foot traffic”, Guzman said.

The brewery taproom, however, won’t open “until the pandemic is over,” Guzman said.

“When we have some kind of scientific data that the majority of Americans are vaccinated” and “when we are no longer in the throes of being completely overwhelmed.”

Business are still concerned that the distribution rate of the new COVID-19 vaccines is still too slow. Hopefully things do not get worse where more Chicago businesses need to stay closed in 2021, like Lagunitas is planning.

Lagunitas was founded in 1993 in Lagunitas, California. In 2014, they opened a brewery in Chicago in the Douglas Park neighborhood. They are one of the large micro brews available in the Chicago area. Check out Beer Garden Jim’s thoughts on a couple of their offerings.
