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?

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.

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.
These breweries are taking off!

Drink a beer and support the legalization of hemp!

A few new canning lines are coming online.
Say hello to the newest addition to our packaging room: a brand-new canning line! Packaging 50 cans of beer a minute, roughly 3000 cans an hour.

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
