It is possible you may already be aware of my personal obsession with Good Pair Days, the wine subscription service that so aptly came into my knowledge during an anxiety-induced realisation amid self-isolation. I do admit, however, that wine is not for everyone and in lieu of a winery world tour from your own couch, Craft Cartel Liquor is making it possible for brew enthusiasts to join in on the fun.

There is no doubt you’ve heard tales of people emulating a pub crawl in different rooms of the house, now, a brewery tour within the home is possible. Boasting over 700 curated beers online, users are invited to handpick a wide selection of craft beers making it easy for you to still support your favourite local breweries, and sink a few ‘quarantinnies’. From Pale Ales and IPAs to Sours and Stouts, Craft Cartel Liquor not only stocks the best craft beer Australia produces but also shares stories from craft breweries across the country.

In light of tap room closures and loss of business, now is a better time than any to support local. And during self-isolation periods, the service is promoting several discounts and opportunities for its customers.
