A quick guide to brewery hours on the Fourth of July

We are compiling a list of brewery hours for the Fourth of July.

Just in case you are in a state where all days blur together, you might have missed that Saturday is the Fourth of July. We kinda forgot to ask for any changes in hours among the breweries for The Week Ahead in Beer, so out went a new request for info Thursday morning.

So far, we have heard back from a few places, so we promise to keep updating this list as the breweries make announcements on social media or send us an email. If your favorite breweries are not listed here, please give them a call before you head over.

Also, today (Friday) has been declared National Independent Beer Run Day by the Brewers Association. No, that does not mean you need to run a mile to earn your beer, it means today is the day to go on a beer run and stock up for the rest of the weekend. Check individual brewery social media pages to see if they are offering discounts of any sort. Of course, we want you to play it safe, so wear your mask (now required at every brewery and liquor/grocery store) and maintain social distance.

Here is all the info we have right now.
