On March 23, Denverites were in for quite an afternoon. Mayor Hancock ordered all non-essential businesses (which included liquor stores and recreational marijuana dispensaries) to close in an effort to minimize the spread of COVID-19, the novel coronavirus. However, after a mass rush to liquor stores, breweries and dispensaries, the Mayor reversed his order—allowing liquor and marijuana stores to remain open while also following extreme physical distancing rules.
This whirlwind of an afternoon taught us a few things. One, that our liquor stores, breweries, bars and other liquor bearing restaurants are absolutely essential. And two, that we Denverites sure do love a stiff drink.
Because of all that—and because we love supporting our local businesses—we’ve rounded up a few Denver liquor stores, breweries, wineries and distilleries that are currently offering pickup and delivery. Don’t see your favorite hotspot on the list? Comment below and we’ll make sure to add them!
