T is for ... Time Out

Well ... certainly not the worst of the casualties of the Covid-19 pandemic, but my A to Z Denver Brewery Project is on hold.

"Time Out", you might say.

Even if I didn't want to practice social distancing, all tap rooms in the Denver area are closed down, so I don't really have much choice.

Most (if not all) of the Denver breweries are trying to survive by remain open for beer-to-go, but for now, I won't be visiting any breweries.

This means that you won't see any new posts to Sheppy's Blog: A to Z.

In the grand scheme of things, this is the very least of anyone's concerns. No big deal.

It does add to my general sadness about this whole pandemic, though.

However ... one nice thing about being a home-brewer is that I don't have to worry about running out of beer (at least as long as the Homebrew Shop remains open).

So .. while we wait for Covid-19 to run its course, the Beer Model and I will continue to take advantage of the liquid that our own home brewery produces.

Arctic Vortex Winter Saison
At the moment, we are extremely well stocked. And, for the near future, I'm not anticipating much opportunity to share the beer with too many others.

So, I certainly don't need breweries or liquor stores to get beer.

Sunny Rise Wheat

Currently, I have 3 beers on tap, and another in a keg carbonating. I should be brewing another beer when this post publishes.

Stone Soup IDA
So ... don't worry. The Beer Model and I are fine on beer.

Galena Dave's Pale Lager

By the way ... in the spirit of social distancing ... I have taken advantage of The Brew Hut's online ordering and pickup for my brew day today.

Everyone take care and stay healthy.


  1. Homebrew Shop = Essential business.
    I'm pretty sure.

  2. I agree. Essentially ... they are a grocery store. Not sure if government officials will agree, but for now they continue to remain open.
