Local Breweries Are Sticking With It

No doubt, things have changed. Just a month ago we were clinking beer glasses, drinking frothy ale and singing the night away at our favorite local brewery. Now, many of us are stuck at home, scrambling to fill our refrigerators with the delicious, primordial nectar that is beer. 

Though it’s sad that we can’t convene, sheltering in place in the age of coronavirus presents local beer lovers the opportunity to support local breweries when they need it most. Many breweries in the Kansas City area are offering curbside pickup options, premiering beer releases, and hosting virtual and off-site events to stay afloat. 

Want some tips on what to drink and where to go (virtually)? As always, Flatland is here to help.

Beer Releases
