West Sixth Brewing is set to open a new retail location and taproom in Newport, Kentucky — West Sixth Box Park. West Sixth Brewing opened its main brewery and taproom at 501 W. Sixth St. in Lexington, Kentucky in 2012. Since then, they have opened three more Kentucky locations: West Sixth Greenroom in downtown Lexington (currently closed due to Covid-19), West Sixth NuLu in Louisville and the West Sixth Farm in Frankfort.
Pherm Brewing, located in Gambrills, Maryland fills a giant geographic hole in the Maryland beer scene and is a welcome addition to an area that has lacked craft breweries since, well, ever. Pherm opened its doors mid-pandemic this January and is already pumping out very high-quality beers.

Not only did Chicago breweries win the first two gold medals in the Juicy or Hazy India Pale Ale category at the Great American Beer Festival, but Alarmist Brewing and Old Irving Brewing are just 10 minutes from one another. Now they’ve teamed up to collab on a Hazy IPA—Le Beez.
Once a phrase linked solely with Oatmeal Stouts, the term ‘breakfast beer’ is now applied to beers ranging from Milkshake and Smoothie Fruited Sours to Oat IPAs. Of course, what you may or may not consider to be a true ‘breakfast beer’ invariably depends on what you choose to have for breakfast, but the link between oat content and breakfastiness in a beer remains undisputed.
“Less snobby, more sippy.”
This is the mantra of OBC Wine Project, Odell Brewing Co.’s latest adventure of craft and creativity. Though cans of their wine have already hit distribution across Colorado and several other states, May 5 marked the official opening of their tasting room and patio located directly across from the well-known brewpub in Fort Collins, Colorado. And when we say directly, we mean directly: it takes about a dozen steps from Odell Brewing Co.’s famous patio stage to the front door of the OBC Wine Project. But despite this proximity, upon entering it is immediately clear that a great deal of thoughtful effort went into carving this space its own personality.
In Episode 41 of the “Boys Are From Märzen” podcast, Kindsey Bernhard converses with Brittany Canterbury of Beale’s Beer.
Canterbury is the general manager of Beale’s Beer in Bedford, Virginia.
Cinco de Mayo has come to mean less about its history and more about parties filled with fishbowl margaritas, music and taco platters, and maybe that’s not such a bad thing. The Mexican-American relationship has undoubtedly been a strained one over the centuries. Indeed, such events as endless immigration issues, the Bracero Program and the U.S.-Mexican War (and subsequent Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo where Mexico ceded 55 percent of its territory to the U.S. — present-day Arizona, California, New Mexico, Texas, Colorado, Nevada, and Utah) mark the struggles between two countries. So, sure, there are plenty of real-life, geopolitical issues that can be discussed. And, yes, some confuse Cinco de Mayo with Mexican Independence day, instead of its true meaning: the date of the Mexican army’s May 5, 1862 victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War (also known as Battle of Puebla Day). But, why not let it be a celebration of Mexican food and culture, even if it’s a bit cheesy (pun intended)? Maybe it’s good to forget the meaning and just have fun. At PorchDrinking.com, that means enjoying Mexican Lagers, demonstrated by the nine writers who recently showcased the style — enjoy!

Label art can tell you a lot about a brewery. It’s a bonus in such a saturated market to not only have label recognition for your devotees but also grab the attention of the bottle shop browser. In Northern California you can spot the iconic Anchor Steam from across a liquor store, you know the pastel puns of Humble Sea will always be pleasing, and in the East Bay, the metal-inspired labels of Ghost Town Brewing are always eye-catching.
Meanwhile Brewing Co. has one of the largest and most unique outdoor spaces in Texas. When Will Jaquiss, Meanwhile’s founder and brewmaster, was searching for a location in Austin, he wanted to find the biggest space possible.
“We wanted to focus on the taproom experience, first and foremost,” Jaquiss said.
Despite opening within the last year, Meanwhile has been able to offer plenty of customers a beautiful outdoor space in southeast Austin. The 3.7-acre property has a large stage for music, jungle gyms for kids and a soccer field. Although not everything has been usable in the last six months, they have plenty of ideas for the future.

The American craft beer industry is still a relatively young movement — it started in the 1970s. The youth of our industry really shows when compared to the longevity of beer globally. Sure, the craft beer industry turns 70 this year, but prohibition is still in recent memory. Early pioneers of our craft moved mountains and steam-forged a path that led to Boston having its very own Lager and spectacular views from the coast of Maine.
Policy Kings Brewery made history when it opened in late 2018, becoming Utah’s first Black-owned brewery. In 2021, the Cedar City-based nanobrewery released a pair of canned beers to “pay homage to Black culture,” said owners Deandre (Dre) and Sara Ridgel. The resulting Love/Hate Series features Love Black IPA and Hate Hazy IPA. Initially, two of each were sold together in 16-ounce four packs only at the brewery.
In the face of adversity during the ongoing pandemic, many breweries across the country have had to make difficult decisions on whether to close up shop or weather the storm. Now, as the country begins taking steps toward re-opening, many …
