Posted at 1:45 PM, Sep 10, 2018

UNION Craft Brewing announced a new policy on children in its tap room on Facebook on Monday.

Children will no longer be permitted there after 6 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday.

In a Facebook post addressed to parents, the brewery said there has been a problem with unattended children running around and damaging property. It adds that they wish to remain family friendly but need parents to work with them to ensure guests are safe and satisfied with their experience.

It goes on to say the new policy is an effort to find a happy medium.

In gest, the brewery posted a sign from Laguintas Brewing in California that reads: "We Love kids, but please keep yours at your table! Unattended kids will be given a shot of espresso and a free puppy. Thanks."

The full statement from the Union Craft Brewing facebook page is below:

Parents: We've really been struggling with the amount of unattended children running amok in our tap room and around the property. We want to remain family friendly but we need to work together to ensure our guests are safe and satisfied with their experience here. Our staff are not babysitters. Our tap room is meant for adults of legal drinking age. The couches, tables, photo-trailer, and beer garden are not play structures. They are damaging our property and impacting the experience of other guests at the brewery. 

In an effort to find a happy medium, we are introducing “Adult Swim” beginning at 6pm every evening. No children will be permitted in the tap room from 6pm to close, Weds-Sunday.

We appreciate your cooperation.

Additionally please be aware that we will be closing the tap room at 6pm on Sundays through the Fall & Winter seasons.
