Julie Verratti, one of the co-founders of Denizens Brewing Co., in Silver Spring, Maryland, has been delivering beers while the taprooms are closed.

WASHINGTON — When Denizens Brewing opened in 2014, it received a license allowing the delivery of growlers to customers within a five-mile radius from its site in suburban Silver Spring, Maryland. But with business focused on sales in the taproom and beer garden, and cans available in stores across the region, delivery was little more than an insurance policy.

“We just never used it because we didn’t need to,” Denizens co-founder Julie Verratti says. “The logistics didn’t seem worth the squeeze” on profit.
