People are still anxious about socializing even after more than two years in isolation. The rituals around greeting someone can be nerve-wracking nowadays. It's stressful being around people and not knowing their social distancing preferences. Do you go in for a handshake? A fist bump? An awkward little wave? An unfriendly step back? ​BondBands wanted to fix this problem and offer individuals the opportunity to communicate their preferences on social distancing in a fun and effective way.

Beer & Analytics is excited to be partnering with BondBands to offer a simple solution to the socializing predicament amid the pandemic. Upon arrival at Beer & Analytics, attendees can pick up either a red, yellow, or green bracelet to subtly indicate to others their preferred level of social interaction.
