Tavour: A One-Stop For Father’s Day Gift-Shopping & Home-Bound Craft Beer Drinkers Alike

Social distancing hasn’t squelched the thirst of beer fans. In fact, it may have made millions of them even thirstier. According to Google Trends, Internet-based searches for “beer delivery” from March 8, 2020 through mid-May 2020 — lining up with the COVID-19 pandemic — were at an all-time high.

Unfortunately many breweries and bars were forced to close within the past few months, and/or they have offered limited to to-go orders only. Meanwhile because they were not enough delivery options, many beer drinkers reverted back to their old grocery store shelf standbys, leaving many craft breweries by the wayside. However, the independent beer community isn’t going down without a fight!

Within the past two months, Washington State-based Tavour has started working with more breweries, and Tavour is now selling more beer across 25 states than at any other point in its six-year history. In conjuction with The Brewers Association, many beer industry leaders are pushing for change. Thus, the old three-tier system of “brewery to distributor to store” is slowly dissolving, and American beer delivery restrictions are being re-evaluated in a very big way.

Altogether Tavour is a company that tries thousands of beers from small craft breweries, ultimately bringing you the beer-related gems you can’t get at the store. It works directly with hundreds of independent breweries to curate craft beer gift boxes with one-of-a-kind selections. In turn with selections as diverse as Matchless Brewing’s Acocalypse Fatigue, the Modist Brewing Co.’s Shook Pineapple, the ColdFire brewing Company’s Italian-Style Pilsner, Lupulin Brewing’s Hooey, and StormBreaker Brewing’s House Martell. This makes Tavour ideal for a Father’s Day gift offering, or really any sort of gift-giving opportunity you may come across for a beer-drinking.

Last year on behalf of The Hype, I had the pleasure of doing Q&A with Megan Birch, Marketing Manager for Tavour. We discussed all facets of Tavour, including its existence as a beer influencer. More on all things Tavour can be found online by visiting
