Updated: Where to Find Local Craft Beer During Coronavirus Shutdown
By Joe Pye
Here’s how you can still drink good beer and support local breweries while bars are closed for the next month.

Yesterday, I wrote how brewery taprooms and craft beer bars throughout the state of Florida were legally shut down for the next 30 days to slow the spread of coronavirus.
Back Yard Craft Beer Bar in Cooper City told me through an Instagram message today that police have already started cracking down on local bars.
But most breweries aren’t technically bars.
Then I spoke to a few brewers who are also confused. Brewpubs sell food and breweries distribute their liquid out the back door, so how are we supposed to interpret these mandates? Needless to say, people are getting creative.
I put together a list of how you can still get your fix during the shutdown…
