How to support your favorite brewery on National Beer Day 2020

How to support your favorite brewery on National Beer Day 2020, CDC Small Business

Today, we encourage you to grab a growler, bites and more from your favorite brewery! It’s National Beer Day and although we know you’d like to be at their tap room toasting their craft with friends, many brewing companies impacted by the coronavirus are providing alternative ways to enjoy their beer and celebrate.  

How are they doing it? By filling growlers for pick up, taking online orders and even putting “Survival Taco Boxes” of all sizes together for their customers. 

Also, National Beer Day just happens to coincide with #TakeoutTuesday. That makes it a great time to choose your local brewery to show your ongoing support for small businesses.

Have a favorite? Head to their website where these brewers and providers of beer and other trendy drinks have listed the unique ways they’re still serving customers, whether at curbside or in their homes, until they can open their doors again.

Here are several across California and Arizona:

8 Bit Brewing Co.

Location: Murrieta, CA

Offers: Accepts online orders of beer, merch, even food supplies. Also offers pick-ups. Check their website though, because supplies change frequently.

The Homebrewer 

Location: San Diego, CA

Offers: The shop fills crowlers and sells other supplies for those who create their own craft beer. They accept online orders, and fill them via regular pickup or curbside service. They also ask patrons to pay ahead to avoid cash or card exchanges.
