After spending nearly 90 days closed to the public due to the shutdown stemming from the global coronavirus pandemic, outdoor areas, patios and open air beer gardens at local breweries are reopening their spaces to beer drinkers once again. And with the warmer weather months arriving here in Western New York, Phase 2 could not have come at a better time.

Most every brewery has been preparing diligently for this day with deep cleaning, sanitizing and additional social distancing measures. As a matter of fact, a number of beer gardens and patios have already welcomed back customers and a host of others will reopen officially tomorrow with more opening this weekend. Some plans are in flux, so check back to this guide for daily and weekly updates as breweries announce their plans.
