    We've been doing a running list in the Visiting Seattle thread but I figured we could do a new thread since this is our new normal for the foreseeable future.

    Breweries
    Fremont - Mercantile open for packaged beer to go. Crowlers.
    https://www.fremontbeertogo.com

    Reubens - Beer to go inside or curbside pickup.
    https://squareup.com/store/reubens-brews-llc/

    Flying Bike - Crowlers and bottles to go.

    Hellbent - Beer to go.

    Mirage - They're working on online ordering and porch drop delivery of beer. Nothing set up yet but he's working on it.

    Figurehead - They're doing delivery of beer to the neighborhoods surrounding Magnolia: https://www.figureheadbrewingcompany.com/beer-delivery

    Urban Family - Crowlers, cans and bottles to go at the brewery.

    Seapine - CLOSED

    Pike - CLOSED but still supplying stores with cans and bottles.

    Floodland - CLOSED but that's normal. Adam is working on 10 minute pickup windows for already placed bottle sales.

    Everything Else:
    Slowboat Taven is closed.
    The Masonry is closed. Both locations.
    Burgundian is closed.
    Brouwers food and beer to go.
    Bottleworks to go only.
    Bobs beer to go.

    Burien Press - Coffee and beer to go. If you're in South King County these guys have a really impressive selection of stuff. I bet you never thought you'd find Great Notion cans in Burien, but there you go.

    If I didn't list a place I couldn't find anything official from them online.

    Brouwers closed for now.

    Brouwer’s Café is temporarily closed!

    Rest assured we will reopen as soon as it makes sense for the health of our community (and our government allows!).

    On Monday, March 16th Governor Jay Inslee announced a two-week statewide shutdown of restaurants and bars, and expanded the limits on social gatherings. As a dining/drinking destination with a capacity well over 150, we were left with the very difficult decision of whether or not it would serve our staff, and our community, to switch to a take-out only menu. Unfortunately for now, the answer is no. If we have to re-invent ourselves to survive for the long-term, we will, but it just doesn’t make sense right now. Our sister establishment, The Burgundian in Tangletown, is also closed; but Bottleworks in Wallingford will remain open and be providing all the beer to-go you need!

    We would like to personally thank everyone for their understanding and support in this very difficult and uncertain time. Take care of yourselves, your family, and your neighbors (at a safe distance).
    We will see you soon!

    Super Deli Mart has packaged beer, growlers and sandwiches to go.

    I stopped by the Fremont Mercantile after work and grabbed a few six packs and crowlers. They have curbside pick up as well.

    Thanks for pulling this together. An update for The Good Society. We’ve got an online portal for ordering and we’re delivering within the West Seattle limits. https://goodsocietybeer.square.site/

    Thanks for posting this, a valuable overview. I "liked" it only because of the information, there is a lot that is necessary, although not really likeable, about your information.
    I'm trying to figure out a schedule to support restaurants with take-out right now, and it seems that supporting breweries with take out crowlers and bottles is another valuable aid to our beleaguered businesses we want to support.

    Bottleworks and a few restaurants also seem to have crowlers from a number of breweries like stoup and holy mountain as well so you can definitely support a couple businesses with one easy trip.

    It's been crazy to see all the places getting Cloudburst and Holy Mountains crowlers on Instagram (Delancey, Bottleworks, Burien Press, etc.). Bummer I'm stuck at home and can't go anywhere to support these places, but it's for the best. My surgery is on for tomorrow and for that I will make any sacrifice necessary.

    Does anyone know for sure from the Governor's new orders last night if breweries are still allowed to offer to-go, or is it only restaurants now?

    "Food manufacturer employees and their supplier employees", including "brewery and wine-making facilities" are indeed listed as part of the 'Essential Workforce' — thank gawd, otherwise we'd be totally effed. My assumption is this would allow them to offer products to-go, otherwise, especially for small operations, it'd be a useless distinction.

    For reference: https://coronavirus.wa.gov/whats-open-and-closed/essential-business

    Propolis now has online ordering and delivery, and it looks like Garden Path will have their system up soon enough. It's really hard to say which breweries need the most help, but I have to assume the more rural and focused, the more of a need they have.

    Especially with the long production times for the types of beers those two breweries make. They don't make 2-week quick IPAs.

    I'll be curious to see if Holy Mtn starts doing online ordering w/ local delivery. I suspect that's what the IG post is alluding to. Definitely sensing that we're going to see fewer and fewer breweries doing anything with in-person pickup, which is most definitely the right call.

    Anyone looking for more cask ale in their life definitely needs to check out Machine House beer in bag option. I drove a total of 3 hours to try this and it was worth every minute. By far the closest to cask beer at home I've experienced.

    They will deliver them within Seattle and the box is pretty subtle so no one but you and ba has to know you purchased ten pints in a bag.

    Tavour is an option for delivering to your doorstep. Limited to choices made available one at a time but pretty decent choices at that. Higher prices neutralized by the gas I would spend chasing down beers and beers I can get no other way. Recent choices included Greed by Anchorage and Dirt King Black Crown by Holy Mountain.

    I'm not really a fan of HM deciding to go solely with Tavour during this crisis. Stores that have long carried their stuff are still open. The PCC by my house would happily sell those cans without an outrageous shipping fee.

    It's like $15 I think. Usually you can pickup in tukwila for free as well but I think that is closed currently.

    $16.40 flat fee for everything you ship together in what they call a crate. You have some flexibility in moving this date around if you want them to ship quickly to get your IPAs fresh or delay it as long as possible to provide more opportunities to get other beers since they only offer 2 a day.

    For the right beer, I'm happy to pay that premium for the convenience of having this beer delivered with no lines and no fuss. They've delivered Cantillon, 3F, A Deal with the Devil and several beers that don't see distribution up here such as Maine Lunch, King Sue, SPON.

    It's also worth noting that not everyone in the same region receives the same offers. Some limited stuff is only offered to their "top" customers. I'm also a bit surprised to see Holy Mountain since I don't think I've ever seen Fremont offered and I know they have been. They seem to focus on beers that don't see local distribution.

    Holy Mountain hasn't gone solely with Tavour. Lots of spots are still carrying their crowlers, though lots of spots doesn't mean what it used to. It's not like they stopped selling to PCC, MET, etc, they just don't have the quantities on these cans to go offer them to grocers. HM has always had a limited distribution to grocery channels and this is no different. Also, Tavour is a better way of buying beer "during this crisis" than shopping at the grocery store. They hardly mark up prices anyway.

    HM sent White Lodge cans down to stores all over the Portland metro, yet here in Seattle they’re behind the $15 shipping paywall that is Tavour.

    Guess my beer money will just continue going toward Floodland and Mirage, amongst others. [shrug]
