The social distancing era may not be a blip in the history books, and those breweries that innovate totally new ideas to engage a community and still make money may lead us into a new era of craft beer business even when the pandemic ends.
In an effort to engage with beer lovers and members of the brewing community during this time of social distancing, WeldWerks Brewing Co. will be launching a series of free virtual events over the next few months. The Dialed In With WeldWerks series aims to bring people together to commiserate, impart some knowledge, and most important of all, foster community.
The schedule for the next few weeks is pretty cool and diversified. Check it:
