Drink some brews and watch some bands with #SongsToSIPBy

Listen. We know you are probably overwhelmed with livestreams at this point of shelter in place. But we're not! With so much talent packed into nine counties, there's an endless array of entertainment available for your ears, no matter the genre you prefer. Not only are we lucky to surrounded by great artists during these days of shelter-in-place-induced boredom, we're lucky to still be able to patronize the craft breweries in the community to, well, drink the hours away.
