Celebrate all the amazing small and independent local breweries we have right here in the borderland! This week is American Craft Beer Week and it's a great time to be a beer lover. This annual nationwide celebration brings together beer lovers and the local breweries they frequently haunt. Unfortunately during the COVID-19 pandemic, we aren't able to visit our favorite local spots in person but you can still support them during American Craft Beer Week.

There are plenty of ways to support your favorite local craft breweries and even discover some new ones! Here are a few ways to support local craft breweries right now:

  • Pick-up curbside or get delivery- Most local breweries and filling stations are open right now for your orders. You can swing by and pickup your crowlers and growlers to go!
  • Buy merchandise- Show your support for your favorite local spot by purchasing their swag. Many stock limited edition glassware and growlers, plus t-shirts, hoodies, stickers, hats, and more!
  • Buy a gift card- Use it as a present for someone or use it on yourself later on.
  • Share them on social media- If you see your local craft brewery is having special offers, limited edition brews, new merchandise, or almost anything repost it and share! Some of your followers may not know about all the great breweries we have and you can help spread the word.
