November 11, 2020: Hello! First off, this is not a, “we are closing” or “we need help” letter. We know there has been so much of that lately, so we wanted to get that out of the way. Our hearts go out to all the small businesses that have been forced to write those. These are trying times for everyone and we take nothing for granted.

Our Very Nice patrons have kept us limping along and for that we just could not be more thankful. This letter is just a heads up on what we have been through and what we will be going through.

You may have noticed we did not have an anniversary party this year, or Halloween, or chili cook off, events, or promotions. With our tiny taproom, there was just no way we could figure out how to do it in a responsible fashion. The thought of any Very Nice patron getting sick, or worse, is what keeps us awake at night. These types of events were our lifeblood and every tap room dependent brewery has found themselves in tough times as a result. Fortunately, we have been able to buckle down and at least keep up with bills through ramping up to-go beer and bottle sales. A heartfelt thank you to all of you that have taken some Very Nice home!!

Hit even harder than us are all the wonderful musicians that graced our tap room with their sweet songs. If Very Nice beer drinkers are our lifeblood, the musicians are the nourishment that keeps that life blood moving and shaking. We have thrown around many ideas to be able to keep supporting musicians with our business. However, considering how small our tap room is and now even further restrictions limiting us to only 11 patrons and one beertender, there is just nothing for us to do at this time. Please always consider donating to musicians through venmo, paypal, etc. when you have the opportunity. They are too awesome to tell you, but they are all struggling hard.

Lastly, even though there was no anniversary party we do have an anniversary ale! It’s been 8 years! We need something to mark it! An imperial stout but not over the top at 8.5%. This smoky, decadent, black concoction was aged for a month on charred oak that had been soaked for weeks in Old Forrester Bourbon. The Bourbon aged on virgin oak contribute a strong vanilla character that plays Very Nicely (see what I did there) with smoky, coffee, and chocolate tones.

We are naming our 2020 anniversary ale “Way She Goes”. Cuz, if 2020 has taught us anything it’s that sometimes she goes and sometimes she doesn’t, but it’s always just the “Way She Goes”.

With deep gratitude and all our Very Nice love,

Susan and Jeffrey Green
