Marten Brewing Co. is closing its doors in downtown Vernon amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The brewery will closed until further notice, the popular dining spot said in a social media post.

“Marten Brewing Co. will be closed for a few days in this time of uncertainty,” the post said. “We have chosen to make this a proactive initiative to help reign in the COVID-19 pandemic.”

The staff said they’re looking forward to re-opening when more clear direction is given by the province and proper health authorities.

Marten will update its Facebook and Google listing with any updates.
