As the Kansas City area slowly relaxes social-distancing restrictions, life — as beer lovers know it — will gradually return to normal.

Soon(ish), the weekends will ring with laughter and the sound of clinking beer glasses. IPA will soon drip from our chins as we embrace a newfound appreciation for the local beer community.

Until things get back to normal, though, let’s continue to support our beer community — one online order, one curbside pickup at a time. 

Sandhills Brewing Co. is jumping into the curbside trend in a big way, partnering with a local meat company to offer both beer and beast for pickup.

The brewery at 5612 Johnson Drive in Mission, Kansas, has teamed up with Scavuzzo’s, a family owned meat company in Kansas City, Kansas. Choices range from beef brisket, chicken wings, chicken breast, and filet mignon to and even steelhead trout! Place your order here by 3 p.m. on Thursday, and pick it up at the Mission taproom.

As always, Flatland is here to point you in the right direction with beer releases and virtual events.
