Miami is on coronavirus lockdown, and you've been binge-watching cable news while stuck indoors for days. Everything about social distancing sucks except one thing: No one's around to see you crack open a morning beer or afternoon beer or evening beer.
Miami's taprooms are shuttered by government mandate, but that doesn't mean you can't enjoy your favorite local brewery's beers at home. Most breweries are filling growlers, taking online orders, and offering curbside pickup and local delivery. Many local beers are also available at Publix, Whole Foods, Total Wine, and other retailers.
Note: The situation fluctuates daily and breweries may change hours, so call ahead before setting out on a beer run.
