The Weekly Buzz | January 27 – February 2
How hard is it to assemble a top-notch recap of the week’s social media activity with three kids in the house? It’s very hard, but I NAILED it! This week we have a few events, some new beer, a few political statements and plenty of fun stuff, too. A buffet of beer news and shenanigans is laid out before you, and that can only mean one thing. This is The Weekly Buzz.
Mmmmm… new hops…

A reality show about brewers? I’m sure I won’t get sucked into this…

Looks like someone is planning an expansion!

Well.. I guess… If you say so.
It’s too cold to drink beer outside… but a tasting room…
I advise everyone to take a break from the news and go outside. Or go to a tasting room and have a beer w/your neighbors.

This is exactly how much coffee I need today.
Branch is adding 140 lbs of coffee where it will sit for 24 hours. Once that time is up we’ve got blend-ready cold-brewed coffee. pic.twitter.com/XgaGXlNIe1

Raising awareness for a good cause!
What do you think about breweries taking political stances like these? It seems to be happening a lot this year.
A few years ago we summarized who we are and what we strive to be. Today seemed like a good day to reflect on those principles. pic.twitter.com/Utprgd46fD

Drink some beer. Help the environment.
Thank you to our customers for learning about 1% for the Planet in our tasting room and through our social media this month! And thank you to our friends at The Skinny Pancake for hosting an amazing event with us to promote 1% for the Planet’s mission. We had a incredible event at their Burlington location a couple weeks ago with live music, auction items donated by @patagonia and other 1% members, lots of beer, and over 200 people, all for the planet. We hope you look for the 1% for the Planet logo on our bottles and other brands to help the environment as a consumer. Every little bit helps! #dowhatsright @1percentftp @skinnypancake
