Two Beers Brewing Co. | Cold Brew Coffee Brown Ale

February 4, 2016 |

Average Reading Time:

ABV: 5.2% | IBU: 18

Though all of us Seattle Porchdrinkers like to think that great beer is Seattle’s most popular exported beverage, there is one Seattle drink that may beat even beer in terms of reputation and recognition, and that drink is coffee. As the home of Starbucks, Tully’s and many other roasters, Seattle’s coffee industry rivals its beer industry for options, quality and appreciation. In acknowledgment of the popularity and similarity of the two industries, Two Beers Brewing Co. created the Cold Brew Coffee Brown Ale. Read More

Southern Tier Brewing Co. | Crème Brûlée

February 3, 2016 |

Average Reading Time:

ABV: 9.5%

One of the best aspects of a bottle share is bountiful sampling of new flavors, sharing reviews and basking in memories with friends, while also drinking an insane amount of delicious beers leading to that rewarding, almost necessary hangover the next morning.

Another bonus, especially if you host such an event, is the left over bottles that didn’t get to be enjoyed. Read More

PorchDrinking Playlist | Classical Does Rock

February 2, 2016 |

Average Reading Time:

Have you been binge watching Amazon’s Mozart in the Jungle like I have? If you haven’t been, you’re missing a great show about the New York Symphony and their quirky Maestro played by Gael García Bernal. I have never been one for listening to very much classical music but the show is making me want to turn the page to a new musical chapter in my life! To make the transition, I have put together a playlist that is Classical-inspired covers of some of our favorite and well known rock, indie, and folk bands from the past 50-ish years with a little bit of Bob Dylan, Beck, Sigur Rós, the Beatles, Arcade Fire and Radiohead, just to name a few. Heck, it may make you want to start playing the cello or piano! Read More

Drink Hollywood | 14 Real Life Movie & TV Bars

February 2, 2016 | 1

Average Reading Time:

If you’ve seen more than a few TV shows and movies in your life, at some point you’ve watched a scene where characters talk (and drink, and sing bad karaoke, and flirt) in a bar. Some of the most memorable scenes in pop culture take place at bars. And more than once, I’ve been out for a drink with friends when I have the thought, “oh wait, isn’t this where they shot that scene from that thing?”

When you really start looking into it, every nook and cranny of Los Angeles has a bar. One report estimates that there are 1,000 bars in LA, and an additional 10,000 full-service restaurants. A few of these drinkeries have made their way into movies and TV shows that I’ve seen. Here now is a look at where you, too, can drink where your favorite characters drank.  Read More

Inside the Tank | Off Color Brewing’s John Laffler

February 1, 2016 |

Average Reading Time:

You’ve probably seen Off Color Brewing beer in your local beer store. The bottles stand out with their unique artwork featuring a little grain mouse. Off Color doesn’t brew your typical beer. They don’t have an IPA, instead opting to brew Sahtis, smoked beers and anything else outside the norm that head brewer and co-founder John Laffler can dream up. I sat down with John for the latest installment of Inside the Tank to get into the head of the man behind Off Color Brewing in Chicago.
