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!
Did you taste any of this?
Check out a great documentary about PA beer!
Wanna go camping at a brewery?
Do you have what it takes?
I think the new venue will be worth the logistical headache!
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.
