Buzz Bomb’s Meta Small Business Story

Meta Small Business Story write up for Buzz Bomb Brewing Co

We are super excited to be a part of the Meta Small Business Story Project, Facebook has been our primary communication platform since we started our build out and has been an invaluable business tool for us.

Additionally, Buzz Bomb was represented at the annual Meta Gather conference in Washington DC May 17th and 18th. Co-owner Josh Flanders was one of just 500 small business leaders from around the country who were chosen to attend in person for a day of networking, learning, and advocacy.

Eight Illinois small business leaders, including Josh Flanders from Buzz Bomb Brewing Co, visited Senator Duckworth’s office to advocate for small business in America.

If you’ve got the blues, don’t worry we do too with Chris Camp & John Drake Duo @ Buzz Bomb Brewing! on Saturday night.
Make it to all those and you can end the week with a sense of satisfaction and reward yourself with a cold beer on a #SundayFunday with DJ Smokey J’s ‘Sin-sational’ Sunday Night Groove 🍻
