Ring in 2021 with a Homegrown Cocktail, Some Tasty, Local Beers and a Glass of NEPA’s Finest Wine


Throw yourself that hard-earned, homebound New Year’s Eve celebration.

Well, it’s finally time to say farewell to 2020. Smile. Be polite. Bite your tongue. Perhaps, if we simply part with an elbow bump and a nod, it’ll just kind of go away quietly. Then, squash all your grievances (or go ahead and scream them into your pillow). Just be sure to compose yourself sometime before that ball drops, because we’re bringing in this brand-new year with some good vibes.

Yeah, maybe it’ll be low-key. Sure, we’re not piling into bars and restaurants like the old days, but you can certainly go to the store and pick up some steaks – and maybe a few lobster tails. You’ve earned it. Or, cast some of that classic NEPA voodoo on the new year by ordering a couple trays from your favorite pizza shop. Of course, there’s always takeout. And, don’t forget the secret sauce – homegrown NEPA spirits from right here in our own backyard.



While you’re stocking up the bar for your epically quiet, CDC-compliant New Year’s Eve festivities, don’t forget about the little guys. Grab some growlers, or 4-packs from NEPA’s amazing craft breweries. Pick up a few bottles of hard cider at your local cidery. Load up on the red and white (and perhaps something with a bit of bubbles) at one of our fine wineries. And, if any farewell was more deserving of a few stiff cocktails, it’s this one. Head out to one of NEPA’s awesome distilleries for the heavy hitters.

As always, however you celebrate, please do so safely and responsibly. And check out this convenient list of local favorites for craft beer, wine, spirits and spiked cider.
