It’s been similar for most businesses but I’ll say it again – this last few months has been madness!!! It still is….
We’re a small brewery and we’ve had to completely rejig what we do to contend with massive shifts in where demand has come from, totally unexpected changes in home life and new pressures on time. Obviously the pub/bar sector disappeared overnight and this remains a scary time for everyone in the industry. It’s sad/frustrating to see that the hospitality industry remains in limbo while other places are getting the nod to tentatively (or otherwise) open up. It all seems pretty messy and such uncertainty for so many independent businesses isn’t on. With early July fast approaching there aren’t even vague recommendations around how opening can realistically and safely take place and it’s looking like there’s going to be lot of guess work around people’s safety.
