It’s almost Christmas, but I won’t give you a cheesy Christmas message. I’ll give you something real. This is a sentiment that we can all relate to in this stressful holiday season. Oh… and I’ll give you The Weekly Buzz, too.
Another week is in the bag, and social media has been all a-twitter (pun DEFINITELY intended) with craft beer events, musings, and nonsense. Your time is far too valuable to sort through it all, so we have decided to boil it down to a few memorable posts in our new weekly social media recap! Without further ado, here is this week’s Weekly Buzz!
Beer should be enjoyable. That’s simple enough, right? But sometimes I feel like as beer nerds we lose track of that. I know I do. I spend way too much time rummaging through Beeradvocate and ratebeer, I obsess over “white-whale” beers and it legitimately bothers me when I try a much-hyped, rare, “highly rated” beer and it just disappoints me. Then I start thinking about all the time I spent checking draft lists and twitter feeds and the disappointment turns into pure anger, mostly directed at myself. I won’t even go into how frustrated I get at beer distribution and beer laws because I am sure anyone reading this already feels my pain there. But here’s the good news: it does not have to be this way. Assuming you live close to a city, I can almost guarantee that you have phenomenal beer in your backyard and you should be drinking and enjoying it. Not because it’s easy, but because it’s delicious and worth knowing about. Night Shift’s Ever Weisse, a superbly funky, sinfully red sour Berliner Weisse beer is the perfect example of the beers we should all be spending more of our time on.
