05/18/2021 Beer loving friends,
We are excited to see some NY restrictions being lifted. With new rules beginning tomorrow 5/19 we would like to take a moment to address how this will affect your visit to Aj’s Beer Warehouse. First, we would like to say we love and respect all our customers. We support you in your choice to love that IPA, get vaccinated, hate lactose, not get vaccinated, stouts for life, we even secretly love wine coolers. That said there are some rules we must still follow and would ask your help in ensuring we can operate safely as we move towards the light at the end of the tunnel. If you are fully vaccinated, you may, as of Wed 5/19 not wear a mask while shopping at Aj’s. If you are UN-Vaccinated per CDC guidelines, you will still need to wear a mask while shopping in the store. Please continue to be socially distanced while shopping vaccinated or not. We are continuing our instore cleaning and sanitizing as if no rules have changed. We are relying on the honor system. However, if a customer is not following social distancing, or is displaying symptoms of a possible illness we may ask to see proof of vaccination. All the staff at Aj’s will be following the same rules. Vaccinated can be un-masked but un-vaccinated will remain masked. Let’s all grab a great beverage tomorrow and cheers to some positive news for once. What a beautiful week for some good!
