Ways To Support Local Breweries & More On National Beer Day
Today is National Beer Day and while you can't sit down in person and grab a craft brew, here's how you can still show your love. April 7th is National Beer Day and this day is usually highlighted by sitting down at your favorite brewery, taphouse or fill station to sip and celebrate one of the world's favorite drinks. This year is a little different, with the COVID-19 pandemic forcing everyone to celebrate solo. Even though you're stuck inside, there are still ways to support some great local establishments during this difficult time. Here are the top 3 ways.
Grab Some Craft Beer Curbside
The easiest way to support your favorite local spots is by buying some beer! Most breweries and filling stations are offering beer to-go through curbside pickup:
- Old Sheepdog Brewery
- Deadbeach Brewery
- Blazing Tree
- Tin Man
- El Paso Brewing Company
- Sun Brewing
Buy Some Merch
Many breweries have their own merchandise for you to purchase and represent your favorite spot. Not to mention collecting growlers has become a hobby for many beer lovers and now is the perfect time to grab some limited edition glassware. Deadbeach Brewery has everything from t-shirts, hats, sunglasses, glassware, zip-up hoodies and more. El Paso Brewing Company has shirts, stickers, glassware, growlers, and even hand sanitizer! (It's sold out don't try I already did.)
Get Some Gift Cards For The Future
You can always grab some beer and food to go right now to enjoy but don't forget about the future. Gift cards are available and you can help make sure your favorite haunt has money now so they can be there for you when we can all finally leave the house.
