Lagunitas Brown Shugga’ ABV: 9.9%A
Around this time every year, I look forward to this brew. The aroma: sweet, hoppy, spicey. The taste: all that aroma in a crisp burst of flavor, with a little booze. Okay, a lot. of …
Beerstagrams are getting everyone geared up for the upcoming Olympics! They may be a few weeks away, but Japan, Ethiopia, Belgium, and (of course) the United States are all representing their unique brews this week. So here’s the challenge: how many countries can we get to represent in Beerstagrams before the Opening Ceremonies in Sochi? Tag @PorchDrinkingCO with your entries! In the meantime, check out Denver’s newest brewery Jagged Mountain.
“That’s one of the greatest ball players of all time, Buddy. Shake his hand.” Dave Parker, who has grandkids of his own now, took the child’s small hand in his own— the same hand that used to fire off balls like a cannon from right field— and gave it a gentle but firm shake.
It’s been talked about often here on PorchDrinking about the transformation that has taken place in the RiNo district of Denver, CO in regards to the craft beer revolution. Our Mutual Friend Malt and Brew is one of those leading the charge and this weekend they celebrate their 1 year anniversary. Cheers to you OMF, may you have many more celebrations to come. We’ll be on hand to help OMF celebrate and we’d love for you to join us both tonight, and Saturday night! Here’s what’s going down…
IBU: who cares, it’s an Oud Bruin
Funkwerks, the award-winning Saison-focused brewery in Fort Collins, Colorado, has released its first barrel-aged sour, Oud Bruin. Oud Bruin is the product of Funkwerks’ sour program which launched in early 2012. The base for Oud Bruin sat in oak whiskey barrels and oak red wine barrels for more than twelve months.
This time of year it’s all about the gift giving. So I thought, “Hey! Why not use my turn as editor to get gift ideas for my friends and family?” And then I planned to post the results to ease your gift buying pains as well.
There are a couple good gift ideas below. Are these the best holiday gifts? Probably not. But you’ll want to read this anyway, even if it is just to see what Marie did when a friend asked for money. I don’t think she quite expected what she got…
I think it’s time I came clean. I have been lusting over a thermostat for months. My friends think I’m nuts, my family tells me on a regular basis to just shut up about the dang thermostat already, and I keep putting off writing about it here, since drooling over a thermostat isn’t something a normal human being should do. But you should see the Nest Learning Thermostat.
Can we all just enter into a covenant together? Don’t worry I’m not just making an obscure quote reference from the movie Yes Man, though kudos if you picked that up. I really do want us to come together on this one and curtail the growing trend of releasing pumpkin beers so damn early in the year.
Each week we will be bringing you regional coverage of your favorite beer events happening in your area. Did we miss something? Let us know!
It is this writer’s opinion that events are going pretty well in PA lately, and celebration is in order. These beers, all of PA soil, commemorate the perfect Black Friday upset in the Bahamas with Villanova beating Kansas, previously undefeated and ranked 2nd in the country, then Iowa the night after. Plus, with the return of the Flyers into the conversation about the Metropolitan Division, things have been pretty even keel for once, just like these beers in conjunction. Now, to the hometown heroes of this Ultimate 6er.
Just when it was looking like Colorado would get treated to a mild season, father winter decided to remind us of his cold, bitter sense of humor. 60 degrees on Sunday, 9 degrees on Wednesday means more than just flannel sheets and cranking up the butt warmers in cars. It’s also time to transition into stouts, porters and all beers dark. Luckily for Denverites, this weekend, Wynkoop Brewery once again plays host to the Parade of Darks, ushering in a flood of those roasty, chocolatey favorites.
It was Thanksgiving, and I had a mountain of vegetables to peel and pare. That’s thirst-provoking work and I wanted a beer. But not just any beer. I wanted an American beer, something to go with my favorite all-American holiday.
Tis the season for greatest hits, star-packed movie soundtracks and strange collaborations! November was chalk full of all three – A Perfect Circle (via a greatest “hits” release) joins tunes from Inside Llewyn Davis and Hunger Games: Catching Fire, as …
