Rochester's popular Thirsty Belgian Bar and Kitchen is closed until further notice. The cause is the all to familiar complaint in 2020, the Coronavirus.

According to their website,

On Monday, November 16, 2020, management was alerted to a kitchen employee of the Thirsty Belgian testing positive for COVID-19. The employee had worked a shift on Friday, November 13 and had no symptoms until after they had already gotten home.

We have decided to be closed until further notice so our staff can be tested, self-isolate, and management can have everything sanitized to ensure there is no additional spread. We hope to be back in business on December 1, 2020 so we can share a little holiday cheer…. We all need it this year.

We will be working with the Public Health and the Olmsted county departments to the best of our ability. This is a scary time but please know we are continuing to follow the guidelines and protocols put in place by the state and CDC.

Any questions of concerns can be sent to Nicole at
Wear your mask, be safe, stay healthy, and stay thirsty. We love you guys!
Jon, Nicole, and the Thirsty B staff
