As the Central Coast works to rebound from the impacts of the pandemic, one Arroyo Grande Brewery is sharing a message of hope this holiday season.

Humdinger Brewing co-owners Justin Amy and Lee Samways did a re-mix of 'If We Make It Through December' by Merle Haggard, describing the shutdown of in-person dining and tasting across most of the state.

“We did kind of want to drive home the point that we would really love your support right now. We do need to make it through this and, once we do, everything will be great and dandy. But with some of those hurdles in life we need the support of the community to help us clear it,” said co-owner Lee Samways.

The video has been watched more than 5,000 times. Click here to watch.

Humdinger Brewing opened during the pandemic in March, so Samways says they know how to operate with restrictions.
