BrewDog’s Yorkshire bars are all taking bookings, as its expected that pubs could be permitted to reopen as early as April. Boris Johnson is currently reviewing lockdown measures, and is set to announce his roadmap out of restrictions sometime next week. There has been no confirmation yet whether or not pubs and bars will re-open, but after a number of turbulant months for the hospitality industry, we can only remain hopeful (as BrewDog themselves are!).
Citing a “rumour” as their reason for opening bookings, the beer company announced the news via their social media channels – stating that they were taking bookings from May 2nd and beyond.
BrewDog took to Twitter announcing: “We’re opening our bookings from 2nd May onwards… Rumour has it that we may be able to open by May so we’re taking reservations just in case. All of our covid-safety precautions will be in place, ensuring your visit is safe and enjoyable!#BrewDog

The news comes as it was announced earlier today that the government may be considering the use of vaccination ‘passports’ to show if you’ve had the vaccine or not to enter pubs, restaurants and other such places. The Foreign Secretary said that the use of a document that proves you’ve been immunised against the disease has not been ruled out. On Sunday, speaking on LBC, when asked about such documents Dominic Raab said: “It is something that hasn’t been ruled out… It’s under consideration, but of course you’ve got to make it workable.”
