Our goal at Happy Brew is to go beyond the minimum ADA standards. We want to create an inclusive space that is built for our diverse community to enjoy including wheelchair users, older adults, people who are deaf, blind, children, and many others! By creating a safe space we hope to promote social interaction and community building. 

We have developed plans by listening to those in our community and consulting experts. However, we still believe the best ideas come from you. If there are ideas or changes you would like to see, please fill out this survey to share how we can do our best to make sure you and your loved ones always feel comfortable at Happy Brew

Current plans include: 

  • Ample wheelchair-accessible parking

  • No-step entry with wide, automatic doors

  • Tables of different heights

  • A quiet room to escape the noise

  • Sensory corner with headphones and soothing activities

  • Braille and Large print menus with high contrast writing 

  • Adult sized changing tables in bathrooms

  • A staff trained to accommodate your individualized needs

  • And More!
