The Weekly Buzz | April 28 – May 4
If there was one thing that helped me get through a rough week at work, it is knowing that the social media coordinator at Wicked Weed Brewing has a much harder job. Any time a craft brewer is bought out by big beer, you can be 100% certain that a twitterstorm of epic proportions is on the horizon. It’s a meteorological fact. Ask any scientist. I can’t even get Wicked Weed in my state, and it’s still a sad turn of events. My hatred of ABInBev burns with the intensity of a thousand suns. They’ll probably merge with Walmart next, forming the Buy-N-Large corporation, which will eventually force us from this planet to aimlessly roam the galaxy (a la the Disney/Pixar film Wall-E).
Anyway… I filled this week’s Weekly Buzz with a lot of extra shenanigans to offset the depressing nature of another AB-Inbev acquisition.
It’s almost like getting a golden ticket!
Big announcement: we are expanding our tour hours starting NEXT WEEK!
