Socially-Distanced Concert

Ghost Train Brewing General Manager, Grayson Small explains their new social-distancing protocol:

“While we are overjoyed to have everyone back at Ghost Train, we ask that you kindly follow all social distancing rules (6 ft. apart) and abide by our new way of doing things. We are taking every precaution to keep our guests and staff as safe as possible. We will be meticulously sanitizing all areas of the brewery while paying extra attention to the high-traffic areas.”

Face mask required

Additionally, to be permitted entrance into the facility, you must wear a face mask. That mask can be removed when, and only when, you are sipping your beverage. Ghost Train’s bar staff will always be wearing masks and gloves, and the taproom will be operating at partial capacity. For indoor seating, only 4 people per table will be allowed and patrons are asked to NOT move any of the tables, chairs, or outdoor furniture, as they are strategically set up to enforce social distancing. In accordance with Governor Ivey’s mandate, groups having over 10 individuals are not allowed, but the Ghost Train staff has made every effort to assure that there is ample space outdoors for everyone to safely hang together! Patrons are also asked to pay attention to the signage in the packaged beer and merchandise areas, which include reminders not to touch anything unless you are purchasing it.

For a safer, non-contact payment approach, patrons can download the Arryved App, which will be the brewery’s preferred method of payment.  Hand Sanitizer stations will be available for everyone to use. Ghost Train Sanitizer is also available for purchase by the gallon, as well as in smaller 6-oz spray bottles for individual use.

Jazz Brunch

Sunday Jazz Brunch will resume on June 7, 2020 (2-5 pm CDT). Also, the Drivin’-n-Cryin’ performances that were originally scheduled for next month, will now be on October 23rd and 24th this year.
