The Weekly Buzz | June 30 – July 6
It’s a federal holiday, an extra day off from work and, above all else, a celebration of independence. The Fourth of July is a celebration of our nation’s independence but, this week, we also found ourselves in a discussion about the independence of craft beer. In this edition of The Weekly Buzz, we’ll explore life, liberty (from Big Beer) and the pursuit of happiness. There’s no better way to pursue happiness than by enjoying a fresh, American-made craft beer, so I suggest you drink one while reading!

Are you going to start looking for the seal?
As a member of the 5,000+ strong group of independent craft brewers, we’re excited to use this seal moving forward. https://t.co/YjN0bprjwX

Tickets go on sale Monday!
Last year’s Festival of Dankness was an outrageously good time, and this year’s installment on 8/26 is looking to be an even more extraordinary beer-drinking experience. The list of breweries for this shindig is seriously formidable, and the beer list might actually change your life. We’ll be dropping tickets on 7/10, so if you’re up day of breathtaking hop-sorcery in a gorgeous, seaside setting, stay tuned for the sale link.
Looks like my annual Rehoboth Beach pilgrimage is going to get better!

Guess they saw AB-InBev’s response to the BA’s new seal…
Today, ABInBev reminds us that "the amount of energy necessary to refute bullshit is an order of magnitude bigger than to produce it."
— Modern Times Beer (@ModernTimesBeer) June 30, 2017
ABInBev's goal is to make it easier to say "fuck it" than to care. It's a deeply cynical strategy that is employed by the very worst people
