The Weekly Buzz | August 25 – 31
This week was terrible in so many ways, almost all of which were related to a bastard named Harvey. It’s disasters like these that help renew my faith in people. There are military men and women, police and other emergency workers saving people from the floods. The Red Cross is sheltering, healing and feeding those who were displaced. And, most relevant to this humble website, breweries of all sizes are canning water, collecting donations and raising money for the relief effort. Raise a glass to those boots-on-the-ground, then enjoy The Weekly Buzz.
Donate to the Red Cross to help people affected by Harvey
Literally the only good thing that happened in Texas this week.
When the HEB in The Woodlands across from The Pavilion ran dry of milk and eggs, they transformed the dairy cooler. 🍺>🥛 pic.twitter.com/f6DnVlW0cj

Absolutely fell in love with @weldwerksbrewing yesterday during the #festivalofdankness. Definitely went back to their booth many times! They had three amazing beers. The one that stuck out to me the most was a Hazy IPA with the taste of piña colada called Fruity Bits. It was incredible. Hope somehow I can get my hands on the beer again some day.
