    If you're in the greater Los Angeles area and love craft beer like I do, here's your guide to helping local craft breweries, bars and bottle shops - not to mention your home quarantine situation.

    Note that businesses are updating how they operate as the situation evolves. I'll update regularly but please let me know if anything is missing or outdated.

    Now let's be well and drink well, because we could all use a responsible indulgence.

    Cheers!
