VinePair was the first drinks publication to respond to the Covid-19 crisis and its impact on the industry. Our live blog launched on March 12, before quarantines went into effect, and our coverage has continued daily — and sometimes hourly — across the live blog, our VP Pro trade vertical, and our podcasts.  

Now we’ve expanded our trade coverage with Next Round, a podcast series and live blog that’s part of VP Pro. We recognize that there are a host of issues facing drinks businesses, including a growing call for racial equity and social justice in the industry, as well as the challenges of pivoting and reopening businesses impacted by coronavirus. Next Round is a resource to help businesses and professionals navigate societal change as it’s happening. We explore the ideas and innovations that are helping drinks businesses adapt and evolve.

For this round, and all the rounds to come, VP Pro is in your corner. If you have a story or perspective to share, email us at [email protected]
