    They usually have a clip board with a list of all of the RS members and they will check it against your ID.

    this doesnt break my heart. Being in downtown Orange made it a total beeotch to visit when trying to find a place to park. Lugging cases of beer back to car was no fun. Glad bottle pickup is back at the tasting room. I can't help but think the high rent of downtown Orange played into this as well. Patrick is a smart guy though. They'll come out of this on both feet.

    I understand the need to focus on the production aspect over retail. I know a lot of loyal customers that are going to be bummed though.

    When ever I visited the Provisions it wasn't that busy inside. But I always would go during the weekdays. And around opening time. Didn't want to put up with parking and the weekend crowds. I hope Patrick will concentrate more on the production of his great beers and have some more available year round.

    I wonder how Haven Gastropub (down the street) is doing these days? I haven't been there in over a year. Hope they're doing okay. Tough area for business these days.

    I'm generally in Downtown Orange on Friday evenings and the place is pretty packed. So at least they are busy when they are supposed to be busy.
