BOSTON, March 26, 2020 / PRNewswire / – City Brew Tours, a leading curator of craft brewery tours and experiences North America, today announces the launch of its live beer events at home to combat the insulating effects of the current crisis. The industries, particularly travel beer and craft beer, have suffered from the devastating effects of the recent pandemic. As a small business at the crossroads of these two industries, City Brew Tours saw an opportunity to entertain, educate and captivate people from the comfort of their own home, while providing continuous work to the 60 employees of the business. Customers can choose between Homebrew Live Experience suitable for all ages and skill levels or Beer and cheese virtual Happy Hour pairing – better for anyone over the legal drinking age.
With company-owned and franchised sites in 11 cities, including Boston, Washington DC., Cleveland, and Portland, Oregon, The core business of City Brew Tours is based on the driving of groups of thirsty beer enthusiasts and on their transport behind the scenes of the best breweries in a region. “If we cannot bring our guests to the breweries, we will virtually bring them brewing and beer education. Fortunately, between my trading partner who was a commercial brewer and all of our passionate guides in craft brewing, we have decades of combined artisanal manufacturing experience, “said Chad Brodsky, founder and CEO of the company.
the Homebrew Live Experience includes brewing instructions led live by one of City Brew Tours’ expert beer guides via online video conference. The experience does not require any prior knowledge and is delivered with the equipment and ingredients necessary for participants to make their first full case of lager or amber beer.
“We have designed the perfect kit for people to try homebrewing. These high-quality, reusable materials, with minimum investment, are shipped across the country to a participant’s front door before the start of experience, “said Barry Hansen, chief operating officer of the company and commercial partner of Mr. Brodsky.
the Beer and cheese virtual Happy Hour pairing add fun interactive rotation to existing video chat with friends at a low price. Using the same entertaining and interactive methods that guides use on tours, this live, guided, virtual fun entertainment will explore the intricacies of combining beer and cheese. City Brew Tours recommends that participants pick up 2 or 3 different types of cheese during their next grocery or delivery. Participants will need at least two types of beer at home; they are encouraged to buy beer at their local breweries, many of which offer sidewalks to take home, as this is the only way for breweries to survive this difficult time.
Homebrew Live Experience – $ 99 – Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 1:00 p.m. AND
Beer and cheese virtual Happy Hour pairing – $ 20/ Household – Daily at 5:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m.
