Independently owned craft breweries across Texas are watching revenues slow to a crawl throughout the coronavirus crisis. According to a survey published by the Texas Craft Brewers Guild, breweries across the state are averaging a 71% decline in revenues.

In an attempt to get Texans to purchase beer from local breweries, the Texas Craft Brewers Guild is launching the Great Texas Beer Run, which runs April 23-26. The community-driven effort looks to support local beer makers by getting customers to check out beer to go options via contactless takeaway and curbside pickup.

Breweries in North Austin, specifically, have been offering curbside beer to go services since the city of Austin and Travis County shut down bars and taprooms in March to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

Below is a list of North Austin’s local breweries that are still putting out beer available for purchase this weekend.

The team at 4th Tap Brewing Co-Op is still offering a wide selection of canned six packs and tallboy crowlers with styles ranging from imperial stouts to kettle sours and gruits. Drinkers looking to count calories under quarantine can try 4th Tap’s Running Man IPA, a 100 calorie hazy IPA.
