In the blink of an eye, our world has changed. One thing constant is the strength of the human spirit. We’ve seen monumental support for frontline workers and those going above and beyond to ensure we all come out on the other side safely together. We raise a virtual glass to these heroes and thank them for their incredible work. In Ontario alone, so many breweries are helping any way they can, showing how truly incredible this community is when we all work together for the common good. In doing our part, $2 from every case sold from our online bottle shop is being donated to Ross Memorial Hospital Foundation. To kick-start the fundraising, we retroactively set this to March 1, 2020.
In these unprecedented times, we’re reminded to practice physical distancing and remain home as much as possible. We long for days to gather with friends and family to raise a glass to good times. Fear not, we WILL see those days again, but for now, home is where the beer is!
There has never been a better time to explore your local breweries. From the comfort and safety of your home, let your fingers do the walking to order great beers delivered to your door. If you’re feeling a bit stir crazy, with the need to get out for a drive, some breweries offer contactless pick up at their locations.
Take comfort with your favourite brews or venture outside and try something new. You might be pleasantly surprised by what your palate may enjoy! Make someone’s day by surprising friends or family with a delightful beer delivery. Your favourites may soon become theirs! Beer is a great way to stay connected in a time when we have to be apart.
Local support matters now more than ever. If you’ve wanted to try a certain beer, but never got a chance to get to that brewery, many, including us, offer free local delivery or flat rate shipping for those outside their town limits. The Ontario Beer Delivery Index is a great resource to explore what Ontario breweries have to offer. Pair your beer with food from your favourite local restaurant!
Let’s stay connected and show us what beers you’re discovering by tagging @fenelonbrewco or #fenelonbrewco.
Stay safe, be well and support local! Let’s be strong together, and cheers from a distance, to do our part to conquer COVID-19.
