Green Bench Brewing reopens to the public through a partnership with PB & Jelly Deli Food Truck

smith and associates

Green Bench Brewing is one of the marquee spots in the bustling EDGE District. The reopening of Bodega, the debut of Pinoy alongside Karma, the forthcoming Courageous 12 Monument, and more developments have made it one of the most trafficked spots in the Sunshine City — and the most celebrated.

Many breweries are finding new ways to navigate this tough time. Adding food to the menu is now a must for breweries if they want to reopen their tasting rooms. If I Brewed the World recently partnered with 28 Grams Pizza truck. St. Pete Brewing Co. now offers hot dogs. Vanchetta Food Truck is now a permanent fixture at Cage Brewing. On the other side of the bridge, Vamos Food Truck is now permanently set up at In the Loop Brewing.

Providing meals for those in need

“We are going to be open to the publix starting this Friday. This is not a drill, folks, and believe us when we tell you we are READY for you,” Green Bench ownership wrote in a Facebook post. “This is all made possible by our new partnership with PB Jelly Deli , a non-profit food truck that puts dank twists on a classic sammy.”

For every meal sold, PB & Jelly Deli will be giving away a meal to someone in need.

Green Bench has new hours, too.

Friday: 2PM-10PM
Saturday: 12PM-10PM
Sunday: 12PM-8PM

Safety guidelines at the brewery

Here’s the protocol once it opens:
Enter and exit through the beer garden gate, wear a mask, and grab a newly built socially distanced table (complete with massive umbrella) outside in the beer garden. Masks must be worn at ALL times unless you’re at your table.
“We will be enforcing this, so please roll with the rules,” Green Bench noted in a Facebook post. “Our bartenders will be masked up, we prefer plastic over cash, and ALL beer will be served in single use plastic cups. We are functioning at 50% capacity, so there may be a wait at times, so come prepared.”
Green Bench Brewing is located at 1133 Baum Avenue North.
