Where to Get Growlers and Pouch Cocktails

During this COVID-19 crisis, I’ve posted a solid amount of content to help you out (offerings of all DC breweries/distilleries and a lot of bars, every spot on H Street, how to get most money in the pocket of your favorite restaurant/bar, virtual trivia spots, and what does DC’s stay at home order require). I’ve also been posed a lot of questions and here’s my attempt to provide that info in one place.
