Drink Local: Supporting Breweries While Social Distancing
In the light of the rapidly evolving situation with COVID-19 in our community, breweries, bars, and restaurants have closed their doors in an effort to minimize the spread of the virus. Just like the rest of the community, we’re practicing social distancing and trying to stay healthy and safe.
But Rochesterians are fiercely loyal to their local favorites. Even during this time of avoiding social spaces and staying at home, there are lots of ways to continue supporting Roc Brewing and other local breweries and businesses.
Find your favorites at local retailers
The brewery may be closed, but you can still find your favorite Roc Brewing beers in cans at local retailers like Wegmans, 7-Eleven, and bottle shops. Make a night of it – find a fun assortment of your favorite local beers and build a beer flight at home! Share a photo on social media, we’d love to see what you’re drinking.
Purchase e-gift cards
A great way to support local breweries during this difficult time is to purchase e-gift cards! You’ll be helping out local business, and when bars and breweries re-open, you’ll be ready to buy your friends a round. You can also send an e-gift card as a gift, whether it’s for a birthday, special occasion, or just to show a friend you’re thinking of them.
Show some local love with a Black Bird Design t-shirt!
Talk about a cool way to support local! Our friends at Black Bird Design have created these shirts for a number of local businesses hit by the COVID-19 closures. A portion of the proceeds for the shirts will go back to the businesses.
Shirts are $20 – click here to get yours!
Be social, while distancing!
Drinking Roc Brewing beer at home? We would LOVE to see. Tag us on social media using #RocBrewingCo or @RocBrewingCo. Breweries are thrilled to see posts about their brews on social media any time, but it’s particularly great right now to know that people are enjoying our beers from the safety of their homes. Send a photo. We’ll share it, we promise.
Come back and see us when we re-open
We miss you. Be safe, friends!
