What 5 breweries are doing to reach customers during the shutdown

Now that Gov. Jay Inslee ordered they close their doors, they’re offering beer to go in growlers.

Here’s what five local breweries are doing in response to the governor’s decree that all food and drink establishments will need to be shut down through March 31 to help slow the spread of coronavirus:

Scuttlebutt: “We have temporarily closed the taproom and the restaurant. We are offering food to go at the restaurant — customers can either pick up directly or order delivery through Uber Eats and GrubHub — and at the brewery we are keeping office hours (10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday) open for beer to go. We have package and kegs available and do not anticipate any shortages.

“We would also encourage those community members that are financially able to support Everett small businesses by purchasing gift cards for future use — all you need to do is call! We are all in this together, and it is times like these that community is more important than ever.”

Sound to Summit: “We will be open seven days a week for to-go beer only starting Tuesday from 3 to 7 p.m. Head brewer Adam Frantz and the owners will be filling growlers and cans of beer. We will also have a tip jar open for collection of funds for our servers while they are at home. All of this money will go to them. We will maintain a high level of sanitation, and all growlers and crowlers will be sanitized before and after filling.”

5 Rights: “For the next two weeks our taproom will not be open to patrons to consume beer on the premises. However, we anticipated this action a few days ago and have made preliminary plans to be open for to-go beer sales this week and are working on a longer term schedule for hours in the days and weeks to come. During these limited hours Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, we cannot allow drinking beer on premises, but you are invited to come down and get your growlers and crowlers filled.”

Crucible: “We will be staying open for to-go growler and crowler sales, and we will be starting a curbside pick-up program at Crucible Brewing. Folks will be able to call or text their order in and swing by and pick up a growler or crowler of beer without needing to leave their car.”

Scrappy Punk: “We have new hours from 2 to 8 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. There will be a sliding door open, with a table of growlers on display. Customers are allowed to come and have their growlers filled. We will be also offering glass growlers for sale, of various sizes.”
