The Weekly Buzz | December 29 – January 4
Well, it’s officially 2018. I don’t feel much different than I did last year. I already go to the gym on a regular basis, so I don’t have a pesky weight loss resolution to deal with (although I do have plenty left to lose). The world is still a terrifying hellscape, and we’re all used to that by now. We still have craft beer, so that’s a mark in the “Win” column. Craft beer also loves creating internet nonsense for us all to read, and we’ve collected some fun ones this week. Welcome to The Weekly Buzz!
Looking for a diet plan to fit that resolution?
Looking for a New Year's resolution? Sam invites you to join him on his #JanuQuenchy journey! The goal? Lose 10 pounds in the first month of the year … while still enjoying a SeaQuench Ale every. single. day. We’ve got the full scoop from Sam himself on just how this all works over on the blog at dogfish.com/JanuQuenchy (link also in bio)! 🍺🥊 #craftbeer #offcentered
I wonder how many football fields of grain I drank this year…

A few thoughts and wishes for 2018!
It’s been one heckuva 2017, and we’re taking a moment to look back! We couldn’t have done it without our awesome co-workers, and we couldn’t have done it without all of you. So, from all of us here at Dogfish Head … cheers and thank you! 🍻 https://t.co/Of5W0CGQ4I pic.twitter.com/rdIk6DNQAU

How many of these “Top Nine” things have you been forced to scroll through?
Jumping on that top nine bandwagon. A lot went down in 2017 but here’s what you liked the most. — We’re thankful we were able to can and ship 2,226bbls (over 1 million cans) of water for @candaid this year. — We expanded our Barrel program to allow us to nationally distribute BA Ten FIDY while still being able to produce small batches of Java FIDY and Rum DBC. — We’re thankful for each and everyone of you who bought and enjoyed our beer this year. We can’t wait to keep doing bigger and better things in 2018 so you have fresher, better tasting beer on shelves nationwide and around the world. — Cheers to more beer in the new year 🍻🎉🍻
Great beer, delicious food, cans, cosmic collaborations, total solar eclipse, an amazing team, the best fans, and so much more: 2017 you did not disappoint! We hope you all have a happy and safe New Year. We are open on New Year’s Day with all day happy hour. • • • #cheers #newyearseve #beer #craftinacan #totalsolareclipse #goodtimes #2017 #besafe #drinkbeer #beerstagram #holidays #follow #pdxeats #pdxpeople #pub #food #poursomespaceinyourface #fourthorbit #bigthingscoming #happyhour

Just in case you need a little company while you drink.
If you're going to trust anyone on the internet to walk you through a beer's tasting notes, it might as well be the folks who brewed it! Luckily we stacked up a whole YouTube channel with videos of our production staff enjoying the fruits of their labor: https://t.co/OJFrP67HLw pic.twitter.com/qktFhehitL

Start checking those shelves, Pelican State!
It still has that new brewery smell…
We love when craft beer gives back!
We were honored to partner with @greeley_habitat_for_humanity_ for the first ever Greeley area House that Beer Built project. With the help of several other breweries and community partners, we were able to raise over $17,000 in the first year! And we are already dreaming of ways to make 2018’s Greeley HtBB even bigger and better than last year! Thanks to everyone who helped support this project that is so near and dear to our hearts.
