Airing between regular episodes of the VinePair Podcast, “Covid-19 Conversations” takes an inside look at how the coronavirus crisis is impacting all areas of the alcohol business.

In this installment of “Covid-19 Conversations,” VinePair CEO Adam Teeter interviews Mike Capoferri, owner and operator of Thunderbolt, a cocktail bar in the Echo Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. Capoferri discusses how his bar operations have been adapting, the pros and cons of staying open, and the benefits of relaxed liquor laws in L.A.

As ready-to-drink, to-go sales are on the rise at Thunderbolt and elsewhere, Capoferri fills us in on how to properly package cocktails intended for off-premise consumption.
