The Weekly Buzz | April 6 – 12
This was one of those weeks that I allowed my day job to get in the way of my fun beer writing job. I really had to push my Twitter-scrolling finger past its safety limits to get this post out in time. While I grab an ice pack and a beer, you can check out this edition of The Weekly Buzz.
Does anybody else want to start shoveling those berries into their face?
It’s still technically beer…barely.
How did you celebrate?
Happy National Beer Day! Come try our newest hazy IPA now on draft, Medusa Oblongata!

Cheers to the beer that’s never left our side, to Saturday, to spring weather, and to everything in between.

A few National Beer Day facts for the nerds out there.
As if you needed a special day to drink beer, but just in case you do, happy National Beer Day! Today we celebrate the anniversary of FDR taking the first steps to repeal Prohibition. So no matter what you’re doing today take a moment, drink a beer, and celebrate this momentous occasion. #nationalbeerday #stbonifacebrewing #stbonifacebrew #convertthemasses #ephratapa #bonifest #pacraftbeer #breweriesinpa

It's National Beer Day but do you know WHY it's National Beer Day? April 7, 1933 is when the Cullen-Harrison Act went into effect, legalizing low alcohol beer and wine for the first time since Prohibiton. Knowledge is power. Beer is delicious. LET'S DRINK. pic.twitter.com/qC0woUkmRT

Crap. I had $200 on the brewhouse parts.
Exciting week for us at #rrbcwindsor ! Venice Bridge, the ship carrying containers with the remaining brewhouse parts, is 10 days late. Star Lysefjord, who is carrying all 43 tanks from Ziemann and Gresser, is a week early. What are the odds that these two ships will end up docking within 2 hours of each other?!! First tanks should arrive onsite later this week! Here we go! #rrbcwindsor2018 #craftbeer #opentopfermentation #plinytheelder #stspils
These breweries are taking off!

A few new canning lines are coming online.

This is the kind of day where you let the images speak for themselves. Canning Day 1 at Allagash. And FYI: cans of Hoppy Table Beer will only be appearing in the brewery, for now. These cans will all go towards research, but we’ll let you know when we have a firm release date. pic.twitter.com/GAARCZ4974
