A Penticton brewery is moving to a counter service and takeout model after it announced it will not be supporting COVID-19 vaccine cards.

“In an effort to remain inclusive to everyone, we would like to update you on our new service structure. We have changed to a counter service and takeout model and as such will only be able to serve alcohol in our tasting room side of the facility while standing,” according to a Facebook post from Bad Tattoo Brewery today, Sept. 23.

“To be clear, we followed all the rules up until this point,” owner Lee Agur said, in an iNFOnews interview in August. “The only thing we’re pushing back on is vaccine passports.”

The restaurant will be unable to serve alcohol but is offering a new non-alcoholic menu, according to Bad Tattoo.

Patrons of certain public venues including restaurants that serve alcohol and offer table service, movies, live events including concerts and sports are required to show proof of at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine and will be required to show proof of a second dose as of Oct. 24.
