A Public Service Announcement from KCBeerBlog: Covid-19 Sucks!! How and Where to Drink Local!

What a difference a month makes. A mere 30 days ago, we were playing debate drinking games, counting down until Parkville Beerfest, getting in practice time for the beer mile, trying new shuffleboard strategies in preparation for the Boulevard championship tournament, and figuring out where to drink the greenest beer. Now all the fun has been put on indefinite hold.
The Green Beer We had to drink from home
It’s going to be fine, most of our readers had too much of a beer/liquor hoard anyway. Who this really affects are the immunocompromised, any customer and essential service employees/health care providers/ etc, and parents trying to learn how to home-school their kids on the fly.

Now that going to your local watering hole for a beer isn't an option, find your couch, relax, drink a few beers, and call a friend you haven’t spoken to in a couple years.  I know drunk dials are so 2004, but everyone still appreciates the occasional drunk dial, plus the alternative is drinking by yourself. If you don't want to talk, relive every Patrick Mahomes' touchdown for free until May 31st.  Thank you NFL!

When you finally realize you need more beer, almost every brewery, restaurant, and liquor store has options for carry-out or delivery. So support local, that 30 pack of multinational-conglomerate, watered-down, cheap-beer, will still be on the shelves when this is all over, but your local establishments working on razor-thin margins may not.  Also please don't forget to tip well, say, “Thank You,” wash your hands, and use common sense. Even though younger people are mostly fine with Covid-19, you don’t want to be the one who gets your grandparents, pregnant wife, or immunocompromised friend sick.

Here is a list of some of the local breweries, bars, and liquor stores, that have take-out and/or delivery. Now is the perfect chance to try a new brewery. This is by no means a comprehensive list, if there is anyone missing, feel free to comment and I will update as I can. Remember to call ahead before you leave as many places have altered their hours.
