It’s almost National Beer Day, Birmingham. Although we’re all stuck inside, that doesn’t meant we can’t celebrate and support Birmingham’s local breweries. Check out these three ways to help support breweries on National Beer Day.

But First…

Do you LOVE Birmingham’s local restaurants, bars, breweries and other establishments? So do we! That’s why Bham Now wants to use our platform to support local businesses and nonprofits during this difficult time. So if you own one, fill out our quick form to be featured on Bham Now’s database for FREE.

We have over 400 breweries, restaurants, bars and other local services on our Local Business Guide!

1. Buy Local Beer Curbside

The easiest (and tastiest) way to celebrate National Beer Day is by—you guessed it—drinking beer! Luckily, Birmingham’s best local breweries (which is all of them) are all offering curbside pickup of their delicious brews.

Curious about curbside pickup? Basically, just call, text or email your favorite brewery and let them know what you’d like to order. Then, either pay online or when you arrive. They’ll bring your order to the door or even to your car—it’s that simple!

If you’d like to know more, learn all about curbside pick at Birmingham’s breweries.

2. Strut Your Style With Merch

From one-of-a-kind t-shirts to comfy koozies, you can support local breweries by wearing their merch (even if only your cat will see it).

This quarantine, give the gift of beer to your friends and family. You can buy online gift cards as well a gift through Birmingham’s own Instagift and spend wherever you want, whenever you want.

Although we can’t wait to get back to hanging with our friends at our favorite breweries, you can make the most of each day (especially National Beer Day) by hanging out and celebrating with your friends on FaceTime—plus, think how much you’ll save on an Uber!

On National Beer Day, make sure to tag @bhamnow and your brewery of choice when you celebrate!
