Here is a guide on what you need to do to join us in the Virtual Pub here at the Irwell Works Brewery.
You can use either a mobile smartphone tablet or laptop to access the pub.
If youre using a mobile phone youll first need to download the Zoom video conferencing app from either the App Store or Google Playstore.
When using your laptop, there is nothing to download as the link we provide will open the Zoom windows app and allow you into the pub doors.
Make sure you select Join Meeting using Zoom App on the laptop when asked, NOT open in browser!
Each day we will post a link with the date on the 'Come Inside' page.
When you click on the link it will open the session with details, telling you if the pub is open, how long the pub is open for.
There will be a button to join the conversation.....
Join Meeting via Zoom App
This should then take you through our famous blue sliding virtual front door and into the pub!
MAKE SURE YOU START THE VIDEO AND SOUND VIA THE ICONS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE CHAT SCREEN!
We find using your phone in a landscape position seems to be better than portrait, but that just a personal preference.
Please bear with us as we work our way through the bugs and get to grips with the 3rd party software we are using, but we'd rather get the pub open than keep the doors closed any longer.
You don't have to be part of the conversation, you don't have to activate your camera to be part of the atmosphere, you're more than welcome to sit back and listen to the inane pub drivel that you'll always find in our establishment!
