In an attempt to slow the spread of coronavirus, many breweries have closed their taprooms, either in response to government mandates or voluntarily. But just because taprooms are closed doesn’t mean the beer will stop flowing. Breweries around the world are getting creative when it comes to supporting their employees and getting beer to their customers. Several have begun to offer delivery, with more, such as Jack’s Abby in Framingham, Massachusetts, in the process of rolling out similar services. These are the breweries and beer shops currently offering delivery. We will continue to update this as needed.
Denizens Brewing Co.
In Maryland, Denizens Brewing Co. is servicing its customers by rolling out the Denizens Beermobile. The Beermobile will bring six-packs of beer, such as its Born Bohemian Pils and Animal Hazy IPA, to customers in Silver Spring and Riverdale Park. The brewery is in the process of expanding its delivery area and adding food delivery via the Beermobile. Orders may be placed through this online form.
Wolf’s Ridge Brewing
Ohio’s Wolf’s Ridge Brewing is temporarily offering beer delivery to Columbus residents via its website. Customers may order six-packs of seven different beers, including Hop Pink IPA and Protegee strawberry table saison, as well as bottles of some of its specialty beers, such as Blackberry Red Legacy, a Flanders-style sour red ale aged in bourbon barrels.
