Brewed to Serve, the Atlanta-based restaurant company behind Bold Monk Brewing Co., Max Lager’s Wood-Fired Grill & Brewery, White Oak Kitchen & Cocktails, and Richards’ Southern Fried, has decided to temporarily close all of its restaurants “until such time that reliable testing and response [for COVID-19] are implemented,” according to a press release Tuesday.
“We have made this decision after consulting with our peers globally and with guidance from local, state, and federal health authorities. We feel this is the most responsible and sensible approach for both our employees and our community. We are indebted to our team of professionals who have contributed to our moment-by-moment assessment of the situation, and we will be taking great care to support our employees during this uncertain time.”
At the moment, the company is keeping all alternatives open, including the ability to offer catering and take-away orders, especially at newly-opened Bold Monk Brewing Co. on Atlanta’s Upper Westside, where brick oven pizza, canned craft beer, and other select menu items will be available.
“We will continue to closely monitor the situation and we will be nimble in our incremental response based on public health and safety considerations,” the statement continued.
“We will also explore making improvements to our restaurants that can only be done while not in operation.”
Brewed to Serve has operated restaurants in Atlanta for more than 22 years and is the latest to voluntarily close its storefronts in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.
