I think the real dealbreaker is you have to spend $75. Who wants $75 in Aslin beer when you can get OH and the Veil for starters.
well there is that too...
but $75 really only gets you about 3 x 4-packs of 16oz cans

but can you actually get OH and Veil delivered?

You can't.

I'll leave the Aslin deliveries for the high risk population.

Diabetic neck beards?

Bluejacket is getting on board and has heard Space's concern at miniums and delivery fees

Your order will be left on the ground with the receipt sleeve and pen. Please just sign the receipt and put it back in the sleeve.

Can confirm officially that other half's "small" series are my favorite beers of theirs.

Everything in that 6ish abv range, juicy, hoppy, and delicious.

Hmmm.   Didn't think of or do that. The delivery guy had gloves on.


Are you wiping down all groceries purchased?

from Sapwood Cellars:

Beer at our tasting room is currently only available in pre-filled growlers. Put your order in through our website the night before or the day of by 3:30 PM and come pick-up it up between 4-6 PM. Currently we aren't offering growler refills or exchanges, but we reduced the price of all beers by $2 to compensate. Once you've had a pint, and this all blows over we'll figure out if we can do any sort of buy-back.
32 oz pre-filled growlers
64 oz pre-filled growlers

We also have bottles of our gin-barrel saison, 365.24, available online or walk-in. If you are interested in supporting us, but can't make it in now we have gift cards available too.

We'll be announcing a bottle release for There Are No Edges (our 10% ABV Port-barrel-aged sour red) soon.

this coronavirus shit just got real: my new'ish local brewery is closing "for two weeks", then they'll "reevaluate".  it's a nice little spot, the beers are really good, and it's become the preferred hangout spot in town.  like other businesses they were doing take-out only ("curbside crowlers") for the past week or so.  they said they're closing out of concern for the community and their staff, but i wonder if they were running out of cans to fill.  dunno about the DMV, but over here breweries are considered "essential" so they had permission to stay open if they want to/could.

darn.

I know a bunch of the local breweries are doing to-go crowlers and deliveries
I think in DC liquor stores made the list as essential businesses
Personally working through my stash, but won't make it through the weekend it's looking like

i wonder if they were running out of cans to fill. 

"The unexpected shift in operations created a bottleneck in the supply chain for to-go packaging. Crowlers, the large aluminum cans that can typically hold two pints, are on back order."
(from American craft brewers were already in trouble. Then came coronavirus)

* * * value alert for Space * * *

Pizza Paradiso: in addition to delivery and take-out, they are also selling carry out beer (30% off restaurant price) and carry out wine (50% off restaurant price).  i wonder how they package it.
