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!

Wish WickedWeed the best, but we will be pulling out of the Funkatorium Invitational. We do not stand by the unethical ABInBev bis practices
