If there was one thing that helped me get through a rough week at work, it is knowing that the social media coordinator at Wicked Weed Brewing has a much harder job. Any time a craft brewer is bought out by big beer, you can be 100% certain that a twitterstorm of epic proportions is on the horizon. It’s a meteorological fact. Ask any scientist. I can’t even get Wicked Weed in my state, and it’s still a sad turn of events. My hatred of ABInBev burns with the intensity of a thousand suns. They’ll probably merge with Walmart next, forming the Buy-N-Large corporation, which will eventually force us from this planet to aimlessly roam the galaxy (a la the Disney/Pixar film Wall-E).
Wednesday was International Women’s Day and breweries took to social media in droves to celebrate the women who make the brewing industry tick. Whether you’re talking about CEOs, janitors, brewers, bartenders, accountants or salespeople, the modern brewing industry wouldn’t be able to function without these brilliant and hardworking team members. Since I don’t think there’s any other news this important, I present you a special International Women’s Day Edition of The Weekly Buzz.
October is upon us, and that means a lot of different things. Fall seasonals are hitting the beer market, and “leafers” are flocking to New England to gawk at autumn foliage. For many in the Southeast, it means evacuating their homes in anticipation of a hurricane. This week in particular will also see a tsunami of brewers and beer enthusiasts slamming into Denver for GABF. To me, it mostly means jealousy because I’m stuck at home. It’s time for us to live vicariously through the Porchdrinking.com staff and find out What We’re Drinking!
