Craft beer has been my pride and joy over the past year and the beers just keep on coming. The only problem with this is that I find myself only buying craft beers – meaning I hit the title of “beer snob”. This is not an entirely bad thing, but I feel like I am not being fair to all the other beer out there – which is just not cool. Now, I do realize that Sol from Cervecería Cuauhtémoc Moctezuma, S.A. de C.V. is not a typical beer that we would write up on PorchDrinking, but it is one that I personally enjoy, and absolutely love on a hot summer day. Sol, which means sun in Spanish, is a Corona-like beer, but is one that not as many people have learned to love and enjoy. For a brief history click here.
Having recently moved to the St. Louis area, I’ve been looking forward to checking out the craft beer scene. My best friend Dave was on a cross country road trip from New Jersey to San Diego and planned to spend a couple days here. Naturally beer was on the menu and we ended up one evening at Perennial Artisan Ales. Hooray!
Ah, baseball is back. I love America’s pastime. From the crack of the bat to the pop of the mitt to the stoppage in play because of an official review – baseball is great. For the first time ever instant replay is being used throughout MLB stadiums and everyone has their own opinion on whether it’s good for the game. While there have to be some tweaks to the system, and players will have to change the way they play the game in some instances, I think instant replay is a great thing for baseball and will only improve.
Blackrocks Brewery, in Marquette, Michigan, named themselves after the cliffs just north of town that people hurl themselves off into icy Lake Superior. They opened a few years ago in a two-story house with their brewing setup in the kitchen and live music just about every night.

Earlier tonight, the Brewers Association announced the 2014 World Beer Cup results, held this year in Denver, CO in conjunction to the culmination of the 2014 Craft Brewers Conference. This year’s World Beer Cup saw 4,754 beers from 1,403 breweries representing …
There’s a cheap map of the United States from Cracker Barrel hanging on my wall. It’s lined with road trips taken over the years. Lately, they’ve become beer trips. I can confidently say that craft beer and road trips go together like lamb and tuna fish or maybe spaghetti and meatball? #BigDaddy.
Admittedly the only thing happening in my life this week revolves around the Craft Brewers Conference, but amid the secret bottle shares, What the Funk, and other nasty beer fart inducing fests happening around town this week I managed to …
ABV – 9.0%

I bought a bag of Sour Patch Kids on my drive home from Thanksgiving with my family. Last time I checked, there is about 2/3 of a bag of Sour Patch Kids in the console of my truck. They’ve long since dried out. I’m not a geologist, but if I had to guess, I’d guess they would rate somewhere feldspar and quartz on the mohs hardness scale. While I may not be a geologist, I still remember some of my 4th grade science fair kung-fu, and through application of a bit of inductive reasoning, I’ve concluded that Sour Patch Kids do not age well.
Does anyone else love this movie besides me? (Sidenote: apparently Michael Bay does, enough to ruin it with a reboot involving Megan Fox as April….ugh.)
TMNT aside, take a peek at a few of the folks who have been ticking …
Last week we introduced Brewery MASH, what would your ideal brewery look like? The PorchDrinking staff get rather creative and international for this week’s Roundtable Discussion. Epic pilgrimages to breweries with coveted features may be in order.
Modern Times’ can first caught my eye because it reminded me of a classic baseball uniform, inviting in that vintage American summer day feeling (I guess it’s like that every day in Southern California). This can is beautiful, simple, classic, and awesome. In the beer world, looks can deceive, but Modern Times Beer has it all: perfect inside and out.
Hoppy beers are a relatively new arrival in France. A few avant-garde brewers like Daniel Thiriez started experimenting early on, but most breweries continued to make less-than-exciting traditional beer based on the relatively meaningless blonde-ambrée-brune color palette. Happily, a number of new-generation breweries are not afraid to hop things up a bit and put out their own French IPAs.
