Sip a new beer from Union Craft Brewing
We’ve all gotten the memo about meditating. Sure, it’s wonderful. But we need something new here, something else that lets us zone out. That something is an adult coloring book from Baltimore’s TBC. This is the advertising firm’s way of saluting nurses and other frontline workers. And while you’re coloring, you can sip a new beer from UNION Craft Brewing. Somebody to Lean On is a Double India Pale Ale and 100 percent of its proceeds go to the Baltimore Restaurant Relief Fund. Relax and be helpful at the same time—we like it! unioncraftbrewing.com
