The Weekly Buzz | December 8 – 14
While canning, some beer inevitably ends up on the floor. That beer goes to waste–an acceptable loss in the packaging process. The world of beer news, however has a savior. We scoop up the small bits of news and shenanigans, clean them up and bring them to you. Crack open a beer because you’re about to get The Weekly Buzz!
Only an old-timey riverboat could make this look cooler.
One of the coolest things about our Richmond, Virginia location is being adjacent to the James River. Something special about seeing new brewing equipment delivered by boat! This shot is from 2015, but tomorrow, we're getting 4 new tanks delivered, once again by barge, as we expand our brewing capacity at #StoneBrewingRVA! Follow @StoneBrewingRVA and @StoneStoreRVA for updates on the installation and everything happening at our East Coast home!
It’s a winter wonderland!
It’s snowing in NC! Due to adverse weather, our Mills River brewery is closed for the day. Stay safe out there! pic.twitter.com/JAAldAxY5j

We hope everyone stays safe during this terrible disaster.
While our locations are not currently threatened and we remain open for business as usual, our thoughts are with all those affected by the fires here in Southern California.

Full six pack status achieved. 9k BBL of fermentation capacity about to rock. As soon as I figure out how to get these things hooked up. pic.twitter.com/EtEI8qxZqB

Who’s gonna crack some of these open in the parking lot at Lambeau?

Buy great beers. Support great causes.
Drink beer and give back while you do it! This December, when you order a sample flight at either location, profits will go to help support the efforts of @gnwyfoundation and @TGPdenver. So come in for a flight and help us give back to our Denver community! pic.twitter.com/4KbWWGIS5I

Why isn’t my freezer full of this right now?!
Can't get enough #StoneXocoveza in your life? We feel you. That's why we partnered with Jeni's Splendid Ice Creams to create #Xocorosa, the perfect complement to our imperial stout inspired by Mexican hot chocolate! Available at all Stone locations. pic.twitter.com/7y7A95nudX

Was Extreme Beer Fest as extreme as it sounds?
Well, it seems Sam & the gang survived the inaugural #ExtremeBeerFest: LA this past weekend & we do believe it was a raging success! Props to team @BeerAdvocate & all the super-creative indie breweries who participated! So many delish experimental beers…here’s to next year! 🍻 pic.twitter.com/GpKnHNt4o3

We like big tanks and we cannot lie…
Oh hey. We’re more than 2️⃣❎DOUBLING ❎2️⃣ our size. Here’s us smashing a bottle of 🍾 bubbly🍾 that’s toats not named Toats on one of our big new fermenters. Read about the expansion, all our new toys, and what it means for you and for us via the @growlermag’s article in our profile (and on the modist blog). And no, this has nothing to do with #dillydilly. Dilly Dilly!
Hope they don’t mind that I’ll be horrifyingly off-key.
Do you drink well with others? This Saturday come Fa La La with us as we gather together for a holiday sing-a-long with @ezrajacobmusic 7-9:30pm. Ezra will be playing an acoustic set of mostly Christmas carols and will also take requests. Eats from @juli… https://t.co/pamwaEF8w6 pic.twitter.com/SNMWyBON35

Business as usual. Nothing to see here.
Typical day of Stone fans arriving by helicopter to buy 18 cases of beer. Very normal. pic.twitter.com/7HOf2V514J
