The Weekly Buzz | June 1 – 7
It’s been a busy week. I’m working 20 hours of overtime this week, but that’s not even what I’m talking about. Beer festival season is upon us, and the task of sorting through thousands of festival-related tweets and ‘grams has fallen to me. In the words of the demigod Maui from the Disney animated feature “Moana,” You’re welcome. This is The Weekly Buzz.
I hear there were a few breweries at this one…
We had an amazing time at #fwibf2018! Thanks so much to @firestonewalker for hosting us and the incredible hospitality. We’re so happy to have been able to brew a beer with some of our favorite brewers for this special event! Big thanks to @brewingnetwork for hosting us on The Beauty of the Barrel panel. And lastly, thanks to everyone who came out to the festival and tried our beer. We feel the love in California. Cheers!
Wow! Thank you to everyone who joined us for the 2018 Invitational Beer Festival, what an amazing day filled with good beers, good food, good tunes & good friends. Congrats to @Garage_Project & @EurekaSLO for winning People’s Choice! #FWIBF2018 pic.twitter.com/7W2aUzBWXj
