What safety protocols is your business currently taking to keep your staff and customers safe?

-No customers allowed inside of the taproom (stay outside or in your car for pick up).

-Every pen is single use for the day. After a pen is used by a customer we put it in the dirty bucket and bleach all pens at the end of the night.

-Use of alcohol to clean POS screen before and after each use.

-Staff wears gloves and practices social distancing in the taproom; no more than two staff working in the taproom at once.

-If a customer brings in a growler, it goes through a three part sanitation (bleach, water, sani solution).

-Increased hand-washing and use of hand sanitizer by staff.

Why should I order from Mobcraft?

MobCraft Hidden Kitchen offers artisan pizzas and 20 beers on tap. Not only can you pick up an awesome dinner, but you can get some amazing beverages to pair with your dinner (we make our own wine and beer, plus sell wine, hard cider, and hard seltzer made by other industry friends of ours who are Wisconsin based). We’re also offering a weekly package that provides at home entertainment: this week we’re partnering with The Pop’s Kettle Corn to offer a beer and popcorn pairing kit! The kit is only $20 and is a four course pairing for two people. You’re supporting several local businesses: MobCraft, Hidden Kitchen, plus our partners!

What’s the best thing on your menu?

There are so many good pizzas! I’d recommend the Fungi (the truffle honey and arugula on top of the mushroom medley are amazing) or if you favor something with meat, go for the Salciccia which has house-made sausage and a gorgonzola cheese that is an awesome pairing.

In what format are you open?

– Delivery

– Curbside Pickup

How can someone order from you?

We are taking orders over the phone (414-488-2019) or on our website.

How has the shutdown impacted the business?

The shutdown has impacted all aspects of our business. Like other small breweries, our distribution is almost non-existent, our taproom is closed, and we’re working from home. But MobCraft is resilient! So far we have not had to lay off any full time employees. We’re getting creative with virtual and “to go” events. We’re now offering take and bake pizzas (in addition to hot/ready to eat pizzas). We quickly got everything we offer (from pizzas, to beer to go, to wine for delivery, to merch, to our events) for sale online.

Do you have any GoFundMe, online donations, gift card or merchandise purchases that will help support your staff?
