The Weekly Buzz | March 2 – 8
Since I’m writing this on International Women’s Day, I would be remiss if I didn’t thank all of my strong, creative female colleagues at PorchDrinking. Without them, this humble beer blog would be but a shadow of itself. Their hard work and dedication keeps this train on the tracks, and their fresh points of view help us keep our content fresh and relevant in an ever-changing world. I invite you all to raise a glass to them! Now, here’s some stuff I found on Twitter. This is The Weekly Buzz.
Don’t forget to buy milk, eggs and liquid bread before it snows!
Gulag Uprising (Bourbon Barrel Aged), our Russian Imperial Stout is now on tap! Brewed with an insane amount of chocolate and roasted malts, along with a touch of oats. Aged for 4 months in Buffalo Trace Bourbon Barrels, then conditioned for 2 months with cacao nibs, vanilla beans, and @1villagecoffee. Turned out to be a perfect day for consuming this beast. 12.0%
Look at all that beautiful oak!
Did you attend the Chicago Beer Fest?

There’s nothing quite as beautiful as beer art.
It’s your turn to get in on the art. Our annual Art of Tröegs Contest has been happening for more than a decade now, and each year, it gets bigger and better. This year, the challenge is simple: Create a piece of art inspired by Tröegs. It can be flat. It can be 3-dimensional. It can be a sculpture or a song. It can be anything you dream up, as long as it has a Tröegs twist. The winner will get $500 and be the star of the Art of Tröegs Gallery at our Hershey brewery! Details at troegs.com/art (link in bio). #ArtofTroegs
Get ’em while they’re hot (and creamy)!

A glimpse into today's @pinkbootssociety all-female brew day in honor of International Women's Day! We're lucky to have a great team of AERO-ladies on staff (only a few pictured here!) and be working in an industry alongside many other bad-ass women. Cheers to #PPB2018 and all the extraordinary females out there!
Celebrating #InternationalWomensDay with us during the Spirit of Revolt Arts & Crafts Fair tonight? Come hungry because @thefatshallot, @empanadabike, and Pie Pie My Darling will be serving food all evening. https://t.co/8wBb7XsQxe pic.twitter.com/PDdjSikNwi

For the Pink Boots Collab Brew Day we brewed a dry-hopped gose and named Ruth Bader Gose because it’s “slightly salty, sometimes sweet and always on point.” Look for it soon only at the taproom. #iwd2018 #pinkbootscollaborationbrewday2018 #thenotoriousrgb pic.twitter.com/U72FjRpIpa

Happy #InternationalWomensDay! We’re so happy to have so many amazing women on our staff. They’re integral to our operation here at CCBC & we don’t know what we’d do without them. If you see any of these women around today, be sure to give them a high five. pic.twitter.com/drAegatmhg
