Safety Before Tomfoolery

At Batson River Brewing & Distilling, we want every person who walks through our doors to feel as safe and relaxed as possible. Given the recent rise in Covid cases in our area, Batson River will temporarily be requiring masks and proof of vaccination for all ages 16+, in an effort to keep our staff and guests safe, healthy and happy. These protocols will be reevaluated when we feel we are on the other side of this. 

Until then, please bring a mask, your vaccination card, and a little extra positivity the next time you stop by to make these strange days as enjoyable as possible. We appreciate your understanding.

If you’d like to address this with our team. Please feel free to email us directly at

Don’t feel like dining in? We’re happy to offer takeout services at both locations!
