March 22: I am working to keep up with the changing situations with brewers, brewpubs and stores during the "Shelter In Place" order, now effective through April 7. The new class of "essential services" includes retail food establishments and brewers, so many of these places are trying to conduct business, at least on a carry-out or delivery basis. Many brewers are continuing to make beer for future sale.
Many restaurants have also reported that their to-go and delivery meals are selling out. I realize, though, that might be fewer sales than they'd see on a day of dine-in business, and that many places have had to furlough their front-of-house employees. Many establishments have set up a virtual "tip jar" or a GoFundMe to help their employees out. I have been reluctant to promote these only because the 'Naut family is working through a tight money situation, as, no doubt, you are. But please check out your favorite spots and see what you can do.
