Phyrst, Local Whiskey To Begin Offering Takeout Cocktail Service May 22

After a few months in quarantine, we could all use a drink.

Lucky for us, the Phyrst will begin offering a takeout service for its famous cocktails through Local Whiskey, according to its Instagram story Thursday. Starting on Friday, May 22, legal drinkers can head over to pick up cocktails from 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m.

Customers will follow a similar procedure to taking out food when picking up takeout cocktails. You’ll be required to wear a mask when entering the building and should follow other mandated procedures displayed throughout the bar.

When carrying out alcohol, drinks will be contained in styrofoam cups with a seal placed over the straw hole. The cups used for takeout will be slightly bigger than the glasses typically used at the Phyrst. As soon as that seal is broken, though, it’ll be considered an open container. Be warned!

Now that the Phyrst needs to account for ~packaging~, cocktail prices will slightly differ from the rates we were used to back in the day. In the coming days, the Phyrst will provide takeout menus and full item pricing on its website, according to general manager Tim Riefel.

As the Phyrst gradually gets used to serving carryout alcohol and drinks, it’ll adapt its plans over time to better serve State College customers. It hopes to soon reopen as Pennsylvania gradually lifts social and workplace restrictions in Centre County. In the meantime, treat yo self to a Phyrst special and enjoy it in the comfort of your own home.
