Breweries in the Philadelphia area have been forced to adapt during the Coronavirus. The most notable change has been adding online ordering. This is particularly helpful for fans of popular breweries like Imprint Beer Company whose beers are sought after by beer drinkers across the country. Customers are able to secure their favorite brews in a more convenient way than ever before.
Extremely desirable beers like their Schmoojee series of heavily fruited sours are now available for purchase from the comfort of your home. However, despite the accessibility of online order, it can be hard to secure popular brews like New England Double IPA and fruited sours. You’ll need quick reflexes to purchase these beers because the Schmoojees are known to sell out in under a minute, and Stickman Brews most popular DIPA, Double Deuce, sold out just as quickly on its debut to online ordering.
Breweries began local delivery and shipping across the state to adapt to COVID-19. However, local delivery severely limits the amount of customers that breweries are able to reach. In order to solve this issue, breweries started shipping across the state of Pennsylvania, something that breweries like Tired Hands and Levante have been doing for a while.
Philadelphia area breweries like Stable 12 and Stickman Brews, who just started shipping for the first time, are now able to reach more customers than ever before. Shipping allows breweries to deliver to customers further away than local delivery allows them to.
After the recent move to the green phase of the governor’s Coronavirus mitigation plan, breweries in the City are left with outdoor seating as their only option, something that’s tough with the extreme weather that comes with the Summer months. These breweries must rely on outdoor seating and takeout to sustain their businesses, but breweries in the suburbs were able to open indoor seating with limited capacity and social distancing. Following these guidelines, brewers must remain optimistic because profit margins are a shell of what they used to be.
