The Weekly Buzz | August 11 – 17
Compared to last week, this week was relatively quiet. The news that the sun is going to go dark and leave us in a lawless scenario (a la “The Purge”) is a little unsettling, but I have craft beer and a deadbolt. I’ll be fine. Safely locked in my highly secure bunker, I will not rest until I’ve brought you the finest tweets on the internet! The end may be nigh, but that doesn’t stop you from sitting back, relaxing and enjoying this week’s edition of The Weekly Buzz!
I guess this pumpkin thing is happening again…

We need to get Americans back into the bars. Sad!
In 1825 the US annual consumption of alcohol for those over 15 years old was 7 gallons per person. Today its only 2. #history

Nothing to see here. Move along!
We're giving the #Cork&Cage bottle treatment to this beer from our #sahr side today. After spending over a year on #Brett in malbec wine barrels, it deserves some special attention. It'll need to condition for a bit, so just pretend this never happened and we'll surprise you with a release date in a few weeks. #SaisonLaSeconde #saison #winebarrelaged #brettanomyces #funky

You know how women in horror movies scream super loud when they see the bad guy? That's the sound I make when I find no #beer in the fridge.
