In addition to Minnesota Gov. Tim Walz issuing a "stay at home" order on Wednesday, he also issued an executive order extending the closure of bars and restaurants to May 1.

The closure was set to expire Friday, but the extension doesn't come as a surprise for Blacklist Brewing Company in Duluth, who says they have been preparing for the possibility.

"Thankfully, we've been so successful this year that we're kind of in a good position right now. I think the longer this goes, the less likely that gets to be a thing, but I think for now we're actually holding pretty strong and the crowler sales are good, so that's going to get us through," said Blacklist Brewing Company Taproom Assistant Ray Mindestrom.

Mindestrom adds that he believes extending the closure was the right thing to do, but that it will likely cost Blacklist Brewing Company a significant amount of their business.

To help with that, Blacklist is offering online ordering and curbside pickup for their 750 milliliter crowlers on Thursdays and Fridays from 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
