Normal’s Destihl Brewery to reopen Wednesday after coronavirus scare


NORMAL (WEEK) - A popular gathering place in Normal is set to reopen on Wednesday after a COVID-19 scare.

Destihl Brewery said on its Facebook page that the McLean County Health Department has given the business "the green light" to reopen the beer hall at 1200 Greenbriar Drive in Normal.

Destihl Restaurant, located at 318 Sourth Towanda Avenue in Normal, is also on track to open again as early as this weekend, according to the Facebook post.

Crews were busy deep cleaning and sanitizing both locations after a restaurant employee tested positive for the novel coronavirus. All the other workers have also been tested for the virus, according to the company.

Destihl was one of several Twin-City restaurants that temporarily closed last weekend because of COVID-19 concerns. Bloomington City Council member Jamie Mathy on Monday praised those businesses for ensuring the safety of employees and customers.
