The Weekly Buzz | March 23 – 29
This is a glorious day. It’s Friday, and I’m about to have an entire weekend off. This only happens about once a month, and I could not be more stoked. My weekend beer plans are already in the works. Have you started planning yet? Maybe these social media posts will help! Sharpen your pencils and pull out your day planner. This is The Weekly Buzz.
Drink beer. Eat cookies. Support the Girl Scouts.
We were excited to work with lots of restaurants to raise money for the Girl Scouts of Western Washington! Thanks Girl Scouts for this snappy snap of Shalini proving that beer goes with cookies too! 😉 pic.twitter.com/geSwC1IOn3

A Public Service Announcement from Cigar City
2010 was a great year for Cigar City Brewing, but not canned 12 packs of Jai Alai good! If you nab a canned 12 pack of Jai Alai stating "canned on 3/2010" it's a nostalgic typo. We apologize for the confusion & appreciate your understanding 🍻 pic.twitter.com/OOR1EGkkSM

Did you drink to the puppy in your life?

I want to go on this adventure with them!
The heavy steam of last night marked a very big moment for our brewery – our first batch of coolship-cooled wort designed for spontaneous fermentation. Turbid mashed and brewed entirely with malt from @mainemalthouse, raw wheat from @mainegrains, and whole cone Willamette from @thehopyard. We've been working towards the goal of beginning this new chapter for the better part of two years, and it's beyond exciting to finally be here, at the very start. So much learning (and even more waiting) ahead as the magic and mystery of this tradition unfold.
We’re putting out an APB on a bobble-head that looks like a brewer!
Wow, what a St. Patrick’s Day party! Thanks to everyone for coming out. It seems like the little Jim bobblehead even got…
Beer jobs! We found beer jobs!
