TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — Breweries in Florida are now allowed to open as long as they serve food on-site and follow the same safety guidelines as restaurants.

The coronavirus has impacted sales at Proof Brewery.

The company says their revenue has been down 75 percent over the last two months.

Despite the losses, Proof made their own hand sanitizer to help local first responders and medical staff.

Now they're taking some extra time to make sure they're prepared to open. Their target date is May 29.

"We have a large outdoor space so people can spread outside," said Byron Burroughs, the owner of Proof Brewing. "We're going to do a lot of social distancing. Staff will be wearing PPE, heavy sanitizing routines. The main thing is we used to be open seven days a week. The general goal now is to focus on Friday, Saturday and Sunday and maintain our curb-side to go Tuesday through Thursday."

There will not be any bar seating available when Proof reopens on May 29.
