Here's how to help your local brewery this winter

I don't need to tell any of you why this year will go down as one of the most unforgettable, most miserable, most {fill in the blank}... through which most of us will likely ever live.

And I probably don't have to cart out one of the most urgent pleas -- that being, to support your local small businesses in whatever way possible. Not just here at the holidays, when it's easier. But, throughout the winter until the vaccines are rolled out far enough to make a difference in our day-to-day lives.

But what I will put out there now for your consumption is a handy guide (if I do say so, ahem) to help you accomplish this lofty goal at your local breweries.

What I've done here is create a PDF from which you can link out directly to a number of ways to help with your dollars. The list includes around 100 breweries, not a complete list admittedly, in the greater Philadelphia/SEPA region. You can help in a number of ways and not just by simply buying food or beer. Think about...

Takeout food.       Gift cards.       Takeout beer.       Purchase merchandise.

Buy a family-style holiday meal.       Write a favorable review.

Share the brewery's social content in a favorable post to your circle of friends.


(and, hey, if you want to be scroogey, feel free to let me know why any of this is a bad idea)
