Dear Bats & Brews Supporters, 

We hope everyone is staying healthy and safe during the ongoing public health crisis. Over the past months we’ve been in touch with a number of our longtime supporters—the breweries who make Bats & Brews possible—and we encourage all past attendees and friends of Seatuck to support our generous brewers by visiting their websites and purchasing some of the countless creative beers they continue to produce. For them to keep brewing, they must keep selling—and that’s where YOU fit in. Most offer home delivery and curbside pickup; ordering is easy, and you’ll have the satisfaction of supporting local businesses and workers. Many of these award-winning breweries have been supporting Seatuck for years, and in these troubled times, we believe that we should, in turn, support them. Also, please feel free to share your support in photos on our Bats & Brews Facebook and Instagram platforms!

Now more than ever, we also recognize the importance of bat conservation. A great article by Discover Magazine details us how It's Wrong to Blame Bats for the Coronavirus and essential to protect them. As the article explains, "normally, [viruses] remain hidden in bats’ bodies and ecosystems without harming humans. People raise the risk of transmission between species when they encroach on bats’ habitats or harvest bats for medicine or food. In particular, humans pack live bats into unsanitary conditions with other wild species that may serve as intermediate hosts. This is what happened at the Wuhan wet market where many experts believe COVID-19 emerged." So instead of punishing bats, we should be promoting the conservation and protection of these amazing mammals. Bats are critical in our ecosystem as they pollinate hundreds of species, including many important agricultural crops (including agave, the source of tequila), eat insect pests that can be harmful to native vegetation and crops, and provide fertilizer in the form of their guano. So let's give a little extra support in this time of need to both our local brewers and bats!

So please browse the Bats & Brews brewery list below and support your favorite brewer. After all, we need them as much as they need us!
