The Weekly Buzz | December 30 – January 5
The first week of the year has been chock full of new beer and event announcements. Hopefully, this is a sign that 2017 will be a great year for craft beer. I’ve already started marking release dates on my calendar and making room in my refrigerator. Forget 2016. That was a garbage year. We’ve got to focus our positive energy on the next 359 days! Pull out your yoga mat, get into Downward-facing Dog, and get ready for The Weekly Buzz.
Shh! Don’t scare it away!

It’s a sad day for South Carolina
Burial Beer Co. has decided to cease distribution in South Carolina until further notice. • Despite having a stellar relationship with our distributor and the independent retailers in SC, state law prevents a distributor (and thus the brewery, who is required by law to use a distributor) from refusing to sell a product to any licensed retailer that places an order for a given brewery's beer, regardless of other concerns for our brand's well-being. We have decided that the enforcement of this law is contradictory to our business plan and our core values. • We want to thank the team at Advintage and their employees who each put in countless hours readying distribution in SC. We will continue to monitor the state laws and hope to be distributing down south someday in the future. We're pouring one out for you SC. We will miss you. #burialbeer
