Your Indie Alehouse Guide to Quarantine Beers

Sure, we’re all stuck in lockdown but we might as well make the best of it right? We’ve actually done some research on our own time and we found out that beer makes physical distancing better. As a matter of fact we’ve even taken it to the next level and paired off some of our more popular brews with your favourite quarantine activities! Even better, we’re offering free Toronto delivery if you live within M2-M9 postal codes and order a minimum of 12 units!
