Restaurants, liquor stores, and breweries have all been deemed essential businesses, and are therefore able to continue operating during the COVID-19 crisis. At the same time, is a run to the packy really worth risking your health?
Thankfully, there's another option. Many of Massachusetts' finest breweries are offering curbside pickup, and a few are even willing to deliver their brews directly to your door!
As with all service establishments at this time, be sure to check social media for changing hours and product availability.
This south shore brewery has kept its Weymouth Back Annex fully stocked. Order up a growler of whimsically-named beer such as Dolphins On Parade, Bamboozled, Townie, and more.
Curbside pickup is available within 30 minutes of request by calling 339-201-7888 while folks within the delivery radius on this map can have their order of $35 or more dropped off at their door at no additional fee.
Not only are they currently waiving their delivery and growler fees, Barrel House Z is one of the local breweries contributing beer to Dirty Water Distillery's hand sanitizer effort.
Be sure to leave a generous tip. This money will go to the brewery’s servers to help them get by while the taproom is closed.
Boston-based brewing powerhouse, Harpoon Brewery will happily deliver four-, six-, 12-, and 15-packs of your favorite beers during this difficult time. Choose from Rec League, Dragon Weisse, UFO, Wannamango, and more. Or perhaps you'd prefer a hard seltzer to help usher in spring?
Harpoon is currently offering curbside pickup from noon to 7 p.m. There is a $35 minimum for delivery orders which must be placed between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. for delivery between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. on the same day. There is no delivery fee.
