Three Socially Distant Replacements For Beer Festivals

With COVID-19 still looming, summer beer festivals across the country have already been cancelled

Beer Festival

Every summer, craft beer festivals pop up all over the country like dandelions. Fans flock to these boozy bastions to try specialty brews and sample beers from far-off states. Brewers attend the festivals to chat with other brewers and see what’s happening at the cutting edge of the industry.

But with COVID-19 still looming, summer beer festivals across the country have already been cancelled. Even The Great American Beer Festival — the granddaddy of all U.S. beer celebrations with more than 2,000 participating breweries — is doing the whole thing online this year.

If you’re wondering how to enjoy a few beer-centric events this summer, here are some of the ways festival organizers are trying to tackle social distancing, while still throwing some of the season’s best beer parties.

Beer Festivals Canceled

Option 1: Going Digital

Pros: You can 'attend' a beer festival from your own couch.

Cons: No matter how much you lick the screen, you won’t be able to taste the beers. Gotta get ‘em beforehand.

Option 2: The Drive Through

Pros: It’s a drive through beer festival!

Cons: It’s a drive through beer festival…

Beer Festival Cars

Option 3: Do It Yourself

Pros: It’s a good excuse to buy a lot of beer.

Cons: No festival grub.

Plenty of enterprising craft beer aficionados are taking matters into their own hands this summer — something that's easier to do than ever before.

Many breweries across the country are offering home delivery for the first time ever, and thanks to online retailers like Tavour, serious connoisseurs can access rare, high-end brews from some of the most celebrated breweries in the country, like Anchorage Brewing, Weldwerks, and Westbrook.

The company’s app-based platform allows users to choose from a wide variety of beers over the course of several days or even weeks, then have them all shipped at the same time. It’s like a beer festival in a box.
