COVID has done many, many strange things to what we once considered “normal”. Aside from having to wear a mask everywhere you go, the day-to-day life in New Jersey has become like something from a Cormac McCarthy novel.
Take, for example, the simple act of collaborating on a beer. Normally done through a number of phone calls, face-to-face meetings, and the like, the best part of any collaboration is getting a chance to travel to another brewery to geek out over their equipment and hang in their tasting room and drink their beers.
<Insert record-scratch sound>
“Not this time!” says COVID.
But we wouldn’t let a little thing like a global pandemic daunt us. We would continue undaunted.
