“Good news everyone - we are reopening June 1,” read a tweet. “Things will look a bit different, but we can't wait to see you again. We are also making changes to our delivery schedule.”

And, according to owner Ben Coli, Dageraad has applied to the City of Burnaby to be allowed to open a patio.

For now, it will be four patios at a safe distance. Bring up to six friends for a beer.


  • Open noon to 7 p.m. every day
  • Groups of six maximum
  • No growler fills, no flights
  • Please wait to be seated when you arrive
  • Maximum stay 90 minutes when there’s a waitlist
  • Increased sanitization procedures to keep you safe.

The Province of B.C. announced it was temporarily authorizing the expansion of service areas, such as patios, to support physical distancing requirements and industry recovery.

"This pandemic has hit our hospitality sector hard. Our government has been working with industry on ways to support the more than 180,000 British Columbians who work in pubs, restaurants and other parts of the sector," said David Eby, Attorney General, in a statement. "Speeding up the process will help restaurants, pubs, breweries and other licensees, and give British Columbians more options for safely eating out this summer, while continuing to follow Dr. (Bonnie) Henry's directions."

To support businesses in their reopening efforts, the Liquor and Cannabis Regulation branch (LCRB) will now permit food-primary, liquor-primary and manufacturer licensees, such as wineries, breweries and distilleries, to apply through a simplified online process to temporarily expand their service areas until Oct. 31, 2020.
