It’s important to keep the fridge well stocked during times like these. Milk, eggs, and a six-pack or two are commonplace in my household. And while I could easily walk over to my corner store to replenish my suds supply with some big-name national brew, I’m choosing to support local when it comes to what I pour in my glass during my video conference happy hours. Thankfully, more than 20 local breweries are still supplying (and even releasing) beers during these challenging times.
Below, from Buffalo to the Southtowns and Northtowns, local breweries are taking careful, sanitary steps to keep your refrigerator topped off – offering to-go purchases, online cashless preorders, drive-thru services, curbside pickup, and even beer delivery. Check out the full list below!
And each time you crack a beer at home, consider leaving a tip for service industry workers in need. Every little bit helps, and this is one more way for the City of Good Neighbors to step up and help their fellow Buffalonians during these challenging times.
