The Weekly Buzz | May 11 – 17
I’m far too tired to give you a witty introduction. My body is aching. Migraine symptoms are setting in. I know that these are probably related to the amount of time I spend on Twitter, but I’m just too darn committed to compiling this dumb list of tweets for your enjoyment. My own well-being comes second to you. Submitted for your approval, this is The Weekly Buzz.
This one time, at Beer Camp…
Did you get your mom something nice?
I just needed to share this for some reason…
As many of you know, during the week leading up to Memorial Day weekend, we commemorate the anniversary of our brewery—this year, we'll mark 8 years from that grand opening day! Like the previous few years, we won't be hosting a formal event but will celebrate during the week with those of you who join us between Weds., May 23, and Sat., May 26! Through the week, we'll have our retail shop stocked up with a variety of IPA and DIPA cans (and more), lots of bottles (including some vintage offerings!) and guest beers as well—stay tuned for details! On Wednesday and Thursday only, we'll offer special onsite only offerings on draft and in bottles. On Friday and Saturday, anticipating a larger turnout, we will offer a limited onsite menu to expedite service, as well as a special treat or two. Also, in honor of the birth of Ralph Waldo Emerson on May 25, we'll have Society & Solitude in various iterations available! Caja Madera @cajademadera1 will be on site throughout the entire week serving up amazing tacos and more, and then we'll be joined on Saturday by Black Diamond Barbeque @blackdiamondbbqvt for even more epic food! We look forward to seeing you all week! #beer #vermont #hillfarmstead #memorialdayweekend
It’s really starting to take shape!
ANAHEIM PROGRESS! After a few rounds of glorious bureaucracy, renovations on our Leisuretown brewery building are officially underway. This place has stunningly beautiful bones, and promises to be total architectural eye-candy. It’ll also be an inexhaustible font of incredibly delicious beer, including a host of foeder & amphora aged wonders. Stay tuned for more thrilling updates; no, we don’t have an opening date yet.
This new location is open for business!
A huge thank you to the city of Napa and the surrounding community for such an incredible welcome at the @StoneNapa Grand Opening Celebration last weekend! We're thrilled to finally open our first Northern California location and immensely proud of the beautiful historic building we've converted into a badass bastion of beer in the heart of wine country. Now open 7 days a week, we hope you all have a chance to visit our newest home soon! (📷 Mitchell Glotzer)

One of the tropical-inspired flavors to look for at #GoodLibations next Fri. is mango. Hard to find in a single hop, some brewers say the characteristic comes from combining hops. Look for beers with combos including Amarillo, Simcoe and even Citra! https://t.co/ayH4oppyQx #ICBW pic.twitter.com/OHmxP1q35n
