In case you missed it, and based on the lack of response we received it seems most of you did, we recently kicked off a hashtag campaign called #MassBrewMonday in an effort to encourage Bay State craft beer lovers to have a little more love for our amazing local breweries. Admittedly, its been a bit of a flop. Either we drink too much, especially on Mondays, or the rest of you aren’t drinking enough, especially on Mondays. Either way, here’s a little more motivation to get you to drink more Massachusetts craft beer on Mondays.
