I’m back from vacation and gotten back to my daily grind. After one shift at work, I’ve decided that it is already time for another holiday. Why is that first day back always so hard?

Here’s all the shenanigans worth sharing. It’s The Weekly Buzz!

Wednesday was International Women’s Day and breweries took to social media in droves to celebrate the women who make the brewing industry tick.

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.
This was a pretty fun week for social media. Not only did the Super Bowl provide endless, hilarious supply of brewery-on-brewery trolling, but there was lots of other fun stuff, too.

We caught all the shenanigans and distilled it down for easy consumption. This is The Weekly Buzz.
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.
