The Civil Life has no doubt become a different company over the last week as we sadly laid off a significant number of our staff. You might not be aware that a small portion of every pint, every 6 pack and every sandwich you purchased over the years helped us save up for a rainy day fund. Not necessarily, a zombie chain saw carrying apocalypse fund but it allowed us to provide another month of health insurance to our staff and some extra funds to them on their departure to help them as they also try to navigate these un-chartered waters. They have also set up a go fund me site which I will share in my next post.
If you are so inclined to desire what I like to think of as a necessity, some Civil Life beer, in this moment of shared struggle, there is now an option to pick-up at the brewery on Saturdays from 12 to 5 and Sundays from 12 to 5. You may order through the below square site. All orders are paid on line and all you will have to do is pull your car up and let me know you have arrived. I'll grab your beer and set on a table for you to retrieve and we'll do the social distancing dance exchanging trademarked Civil Life thanks from a distance. I'll put a hug in my hug bank for you too.
Thank you for your continued support. The Civil Life is a now a much smaller brewery but we are strong and will survive. I'd say we are still strong like ox but just a smaller marathon running ox.
You also will see our beer in grocery stores now if that is easier for you. Of course, you won't be able to see me when you pick up but just know I am thankful wherever you purchase. We so appreciate all the retailers in our city that are helping make our beer more accessible.
I'll update soon with another blog post and some more details on how we will do our best to get through this. But mostly, I'm just hoping St. Louis takes social distancing seriously over the coming weeks. Doing our part now will help take some pressure off of our health care system when they need it the most. Social distancing is Civil.
Just know, this too will pass. Please the better all of us can social distancing means the quicker the Civil Life can get back to doing what it loves.
Be well my friends,
The Civil Blog has returned. It is predominantly authored by Civil Life Barman, Dr. Patrick Hurley, who can be found tending to our bar patrons on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. He is also responsible for tending to our draft lines, which is recognized as one of our most important tasks. Special guest writers will appear from time to time. We hope reading this blog will give you much insight about the Civil Life and most importantly help you understand a bit more about all of us that work here and the beers we put our hearts into.
