Important, Exciting Changes at Your Co-op!
- Purchase an exterior sign
- Increase seating
- Track patronage
- Create a more welcoming and comfortable environment
- Provide lunch service
The first step was to take advantage of our available patio space. With more seating, leash holders, and native plants, our patio is a great place to enjoy a pint with friends. As you might have seen already, the exterior signs were installed last month and we’ve seen a dramatic decrease in the frantic calls for directions. This week, we’re expecting a delivery of a few booths, adding interior seating, and a living plant wall to aid in sound dampening. Our final step for improving the ambiance is to do more sound dampening.
And I’ve saved the best for last: we’re tracking your patronage beginning June 18th. From June 18 to June 21 from 4pm – 9pm, I’ll be in the pub printing new membership cards. Yes, you can still use your old paper card, but we would love to see you for what we’re calling Member-Owner Madness! To save the Co-op on administrative costs, we encourage you to come in during this time to get your new member card and see the improvements. As an added incentive, we’ll have something fun for you each night: member-owner appreciation night, caskermelons, 100th batch brew night, and more!
AND, we’re opening for weekend lunch service starting June 22! Every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday we’ll open at 11:00 am with the hopes of moving toward weekday lunch in the future.
I want to personally thank Jeff for all his hard work. He spearheaded many of these projects: getting a great sign that fit our tight budget, reconfiguring the interior space, solving the patronage tracking issues with our point of sale system, and so much more. Next time you see him, make sure and give him a thumbs up (or some equivalent show of appreciation of your choice), because he’s a pretty awesome guy. Seriously Jeff. I love you, man.
