    Curbside pick up
    I ordered a beer kit and paid on line. They called to say it was ready the next day. I dropped by and quickly picked up my kit and they had already milled the grain. Worked great. Unfortunately the next day they notified us by email that they had to close completely due to COVID-19. The beer goes to secondary fermentation today. The Beverage People is a great business. I sure hope they can weather this pandemic OK.
