Have you been missing the melty cheese curds and specialty beers at Lakefront Brewery? Well, good news. The brewery is opening back up for carryout orders Friday.

Lakefront Brewery made the decision to close its doors early in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, according to our partners at the Milwaukee Business Journal. However, as we all adjust to the new socially-distant ways of life, the brewery has decided to open back up, kicking things off with its classic Friday fish fry.

Starting Friday, the brewery will be open for takeout from 3 p.m. until 8 p.m., with the last order being accepted at 7:30 p.m. Customers can then pick up their order at Lakefront Brewery 30 minutes after ordering it online.

You also have the option to preorder your meal on Thursday starting at 11 a.m. Customers who choose to do this will receive a free take-and-bake pretzel with their order.

Then on April 7, Lakefront will begin offering to-go options Tuesdays through Sundays from 3 p.m. until 8 p.m. All orders must be made online.

Head chef Kristin Hueneke is currently cooking up some potential options for Lakefront's menu, which may include a new special entree each week, or possibly grab-and-go options for customers to purchase and reheat the next day.

And it wouldn't be right for a brewery to reopen and not sell beer, so they're doing that too. You can purchase a six-pack of Lakefront beer cans to go with your order, or alone. No judgment.

Since the closing, Lakefront Brewery President and Founder Russ Klisch made the decision to epoxy the floors of the brewery, which required ripping out equipment and putting it back in to create a better functioning space.
