The Weekly Buzz | July 27 – August 2
Since we’re all gathered here around the Weekly Buzz hearth, allow Grandpappy Dan to spin a yarn about the good old days. A long time ago, fall seasonal beers — like pumpkin ales — used to be released in the fall, so that their warm spiciness and pumpkin sweetness could be enjoyed on cool autumn nights. Märzens (or Oktoberfests) would be released in September to coincide with Munich’s historic Oktoberfest festival, which runs from late September until early October. Much like the way certain big box chains stock bathing suits in February, these beers are releasing earlier and earlier. Does anyone really want to drink a Pumpkin Ale in July or August? I don’t believe that they do. Seasonality is a beautiful thing, but it is being lost as its lines are being blurred. If you don’t buy fall seasonals in August, they’ll stop releasing them in August.
Let’s make seasonal beers great again!
Today’s the day, our 3rd Anniversary Party! Bob and the gang are ready to party with you all. Timeline for the festivities: Noon: 3rd Anniversary Ale NE IPA Can & Draft Release 1pm-9pm: Food trucks: Mom-Mom's Kitchen & Polish Food Cart & The Plum Pit Food Truck 3pm: Tapping Brett Butler (bar in the brewery) 3pm-7pm: The Juggling Hoffmans – juggling, face-painting, and balloon animals 3pm-7pm: Cajun-Sno 4pm-8pm: Chorduroy Band 5pm: Tapping 2015 The Russian (bar in the brewery) All day: Cold beer & Yard games: giant jenga, cornhole, etc.

I think the new venue will be worth the logistical headache!
Due to unforeseen growth, we are forced to move @freshfestbeerfest to @NovaPlace, @Alloy26PGH (VIP)! This means more space, on site parking ($5), & walking distance from Downtown! We'd like to thank all of our brewers, collaborators, & the city for showing so much support! We'd also like to thank @ThreadbareCider and Mead for their guidance through this process. 38 breweries (& counting) | 20+ NEW collabs | 70+ selections | Music | Food trucks | Only 100 VIP/Meet The Brewers tickets FRESHFESTBEERFEST.COM

I don’t understand a word of this…
We're sorry to inform you that we will not able to accept MacCoin as payment. Some of the folks at The Artifactory, however, may entertain a Big Mac barter, but we are encouraging them not to because they'll be arrested. Thank you for understanding.

Mine is smart enough to swear and capitalize!
When your phone changes fuckers to duckers every time, not automatically capitalizing IPA is icing on the cake.
