The Weekly Buzz | April 7 – 13: CBC Edition
It’s CBC week at The Weekly Buzz! Unless you’re living in a bubble, you probably picked up on the fact that the 2017 Craft Brewers Conference took place this week. This event is put on by the Brewers Association and is THE trade show for the craft beer industry. Because I love my family more than beer, I was unable to attend and will forever be a bitter, bitter man.
Before we dig into the CBC fun, however, we have a bit of normal to business to get to. Not only was this CBC week, but we also celebrated National Beer Day AND Saison Day. It’s been a great week to be a craft beer fanatic. If you hang in until the end of this post, we’ll also check in with the folks who were unable to attend CBC this year.
Strap in! You’re going to have an unusually big Buzz this week!
Do you have what it takes?
Because beer is the single most important key to great health!*
Wait a minute… it's #NationalBeerDay and #WorldHealthDay today? How can that be!? ??? pic.twitter.com/xypXU5kdZW

*I am not a doctor.
Every. Single. Day.
Every day can be #NationalBeerDay if you just believe, dammit.

A new brewery is a beautiful thing. So is an old brewery. Any brewery, really…

With more competition comes more closings. But in 2016, we did have 826 openings. #CBC17 pic.twitter.com/cm5ssd6gJi

If everyone came to CBC, there would be no one making beer! Raise a glass to the unfortunate souls who had to stay behind. We salute you!
