Already planning to close indefinitely in early November, Surly has been forced to temporarily close its beer hall and beer garden after an employee tested positive for COVID-19. 

"The hits just keep on coming. Since the pandemic began, we’ve all faced uncertainty and the need to constantly adjust to changing circumstances. This weekend was no exception as we learned that one of our employees tested positive for COVID-19," Surly announced on its website. 

"Everyone, guests and employees, who came into close contact with the employee have been notified and we will be temporarily closing the beer hall to ensure the safety of our employees and guests."

Surly said it is tentatively planning to reopen on Tuesday, Oct. 13. That gives it a little more than three weeks of business before it closes "indefintely" on Nov. 2. 

Revenue at the beer hall is down 82% compared to the same time last year, Surly recently announced, noting that if it stayed open this winter it would lose "another three-quarters of a million dollars." 

Surly fans will still be able to purchase their favorite beers at liquor stores, bars and restaurants because the COVID-19 closure won't force the company to stop making beer.
