Opening Hours Latest – 23/03/2020

Dear friends of Good Chemistry Brewing and The Good Measure,

We’re living in strange uncertain times, with a lot of unknown unknowns, and what’s definitely clear is that there is no infallible guidance out there.

For Bob and me, our priorities are two-fold:

We want to protect our teams, both at GCHQ and at the pub, to ensure they’re not exposed more than can possibly be avoided, and to ensure they’re provided for in as full a way as we can manage for as long as possible.

And we want to protect our businesses, to make sure that, when this passes, we all have something to come back to, to build back up, to continue working for and, we hope, being proud of.

To this end, our previous post, made only the evening before this one, is no longer valid. We cannot in all good faith keep asking our staff to put themselves at further risk.

Monday 23rd March is therefore the last day of our brewery can shop (William St, St Philips BS2 0RG). Bob & I will be here until 4pm.

Our online webshop will only be open for orders until midday on Wednesday 25th. Home deliveries in the BS1-BS8 (Clifton only) area will take the place that afternoon. The courier deliveries for outside these postcodes will be dispatched on Wednesday too.

The Good Measure will be open as a can pick-up point until 6pm on Monday 23rd.

Obviously this remains a constantly changing situation. We just need to do what we can to protect our staff, and we appreciate your understanding.

Bob & I have built our businesses over the last five years trying to be thoughtful, open and inclusive in what we do, and by growing organically with sensitivity and care. We fully intend to still be here, as a brewery and as a pub, with our full teams in place and ready to move forward, when this passes. We very much look forward to sharing the next stage of our journey with you then.

And once again – thank you for all your support, generosity, kindness and love for Good Chemistry since 2015!


Kelly & Bob, and Sam, Dan, Fergus, Liam and Amber, and Will, Martyn and David
