As we know, restaurants, bars and breweries across Arizona have forcibly been closed because of the spread of COVID19. Thankfully, many are still open for take out orders, delivery and growler fills.
But, business has been tough. Consumers are hunkering down and spending less money. This means these amazing small businesses are at risk.
With challenge comes opportunity.
This weekend there's a great opportunity for you to find out which of your favorite breweries remain open and there's an even better opportunity for you to interact with the brewers and their staff. Not only the people who work in the breweries, but several others, including Mike Russell & Rob Hunter, who love Arizona beer.
Arizona brewers are making some of the best beer in the country.
The Arizona Craft Brewer's Guild is hosting The Keep Arizona Brewing Virtual Beer Fest on Saturday, April 18 from 2-6PM. This is truly a chance to support over 100 small businesses operating without the beautiful state of Arizona. Tickets start at just $5 and all the proceeds go towards helping keep these businesses open. A recent survey of Brewers Association finds sales at the average brewery is down 65%.
This is the time for the Arizona craft beer drinking community to rally together and help save Arizona businesses. We hope to see you on Saturday. Get your tickets here.
