Hey Friends and Loyal Customers (our extended 12 Bones Family)…

We can’t even begin to tell you all how much we appreciate the generosity, love, and support of our incredible customers! It has been overwhelming to see the kindness you all have showed our staff and business over the past 15 years, but especially during this last week. We have cried so much these past few days when folks have come in and tipped excessively or needlessly bought retail items and gift certificates simply to help the cause. We are super grateful to all the tourists and first timers that come through our door, but it’s our regulars and the Asheville community who deserve a special THANK YOU! We wouldn’t have made it this far without y’all!!

We tried to stay open as long as we could running TAKEOUT ONLY to help and support our staff and their families, but we have been faced with the impossible decision to close our doors temporarily. We wish we could say we will be able to pay all 45 of them after we close but that unfortunately is not the case if sales aren’t coming in the door. Today, Saturday, March 21st, was our last day open for take-out at both locations.

A GoFundMe page has been created to help support our 45 strong team members as they manage this shutdown. 100% of donations will go directly to employees of 12 Bones and 12 Bones Brewing. Please share the post if you can’t donate. We know it’s a lot to ask when many of you are facing uncertainty and instability. Know that even your words of love and support have meant so much. ANYTHING you give is greatly appreciated and means the world to our 12 Bones family!

You can still support us by buying Gift Certificates as well as sauces, rubs, spices, and more! Just email hello@12bones.com with your delivery address + quantity of what you’re interested in, and we’ll let you how much it will cost to ship.

The impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) on every small business around the country, but especially for the restaurant industry, has been devastating. We look forward to bringing more delicious ‘cue and tasty brews as soon we are able to. In the meantime, please be kind to one another, be well and take care of yourselves.

We are in this together and we can’t wait to welcome you all back in our dining and tasting rooms again! Please continue to help support all of your favorite local restaurants any way you can.

Much love,

Bryan, Angela and our 12 Bones Family
