In an effort to keeping patrons and our staff safe we ask that you follow these policies:
At Turgua we want to provide a Covid-19 safe environment for all our patrons. Our staff are required to wear a mask at all times during their shift. We have installed ceiling fans and whole room Hepa filters at each end of the taproom and next to the ordering station to providing good air flow and clean filtered air to everyone in the room.
Likewise, per the August 18, 2021 Buncombe County mandate, masks are required indoors for anyone over the age of 5. You may remove your mask when seated at your table, or when outdoors. Thank you for complying.
You must be 21 years or older to drink alcoholic beverages in NC. You must have a valid 21+ ID on you in order to drink alcoholic beverages anywhere on the property.
No alcoholic beverages of any kind can be brought into our taproom from outside our facility. Any filled growlers, bottles, or canned beers sold for take-away in the taproom must be consumed off premise.
Kids are welcome in the taproom, on our patio decks or in the outdoor space as long as they are accompanied by their parents at all times. Parents, please, when seated inside the taproom keep your kids with you, seated at your table. Children are not allowed to sit at the bar.
With the exception of service dogs, pets are not allowed inside our taproom. However, friendly and well behaved pets are welcome outside, as long as they are short-leashed and accompanied by their human at all times.
No glassware should be taken within 50ft of the creek. Glassware should be brought back to the taproom. Please be aware that any glassware left behind is a future safety hazard for others, especially for children and pets.
The use of tobacco is not permitted inside the taproom, nor within 100 yards from the taproom. No smoking is allowed in the main lawn and between taproom and outside shelters. Though we have no designated smoking areas we encourage smokers to be aware of others and find a spot away from the general public, maintaining a proper distance from nonsmoking patrons.
Taproom furniture must remain inside the taproom at all times. You may bring folding chairs to sit outside, while keeping considerate distancing from other groups that are already seated.
As tempting as it may be, please refrain from wading or swimming in the creek. Be aware that the creek floods when it rains hard and when it does it caries debris from upstream. We have pulled lots of hazardous flotsam from the creek bed and shores, including broken glass, sharp metal pieces, and construction wood with rusty nails sticking out.
