You may be wondering what in the h-e-double toothpicks is happening right now. We are wondering the exact same thing. We are taking the Covid 19 situation day by day, trying to comply with public health recommendations and keep our staff and customers safe while still figuring out how to keep our small business afloat. We are not unique or alone in our struggles, and we encourage those of you who have the means to support ALL of your favorite locally owned businesses for however long this disruption lasts. Not to be grim, but some of them might not be there when this is all over. We've already heard about businesses in Seattle throwing in the towel rather than face weeks or months without revenue. We will make it through as long as you all keep drinking beer. Deal? Deal.
Here's what we are doing right now: The taproom is open daily from 3-7 for to-go sales of bottles (and cases if you want to stock up). We won't be serving any draft and as much as we want to talk to you, patrons will not be allowed to hang out. It bums us out more than we can say, because the best part about our jobs is YOU.
We also have next day beer delivery to your home or office within the majority of Portland. Order by midnight and we'll have it to you the next day. In case you missed the giant link button above, you can access home delivery options HERE.
We have just added dock sales for kegs! If you are interested, email email@example.com. We have 1/6th barrels available for $85 with no keg deposit (kegs are recyclable). Currently we have IPA, Sassy Pony, Kölschtastic, Fluffy Tufts, Project Pilsner Galaxy, and Shake and Shimmy Juicy IPA.
For those of you outside the Portland area who are interested in helping us out, we are still selling merch and gift certificates on this website (Gigantic Gift Certificates- the perfect gift for your favorite Portland person).
Our community is strong and we have hope.
Hang in there,
Ben, Van & your entire Gigantic Crew
P.S. In case you are curious about when our new taproom at NE 70th and Glisan will open, your guess is as good as ours. We are supposedly opening in late April but that seems more unlikely now. We will definitely let you know when that happens!
