January 19, 2018 | Avg. Reading Time: 1 min

As it turns out, Dry January can even affect a beer blog! We didn’t have a ton of submissions from the PorchDrinking team this week, but they are all good ones.

The Weekly Buzz | January 12 – 18

January 19, 2018 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

I just realized today that I’ve gone to the gym 11 days in a row and plan on going twice tomorrow. What kind of human being does that to themselves? I could be drinking beer, but instead I’ll be sweating my butt off. I guess if I burn more calories I can drink more beer. Searching Twitter and Instagram for beer-related content is definitely the thirstiest of work. Enjoy the fruits of my labor in this week’s edition of The Weekly Buzz!

Alvarado Street Brewing | Local Shred Red

January 19, 2018 | Avg. Reading Time: 1 min

Living in the Bay Area has some huge perks if you are into craft beer, which let’s be honest – if you are reading this you probably are. I live in San Leandro, and a ton of amazing breweries are anywhere from 10 minutes (I am crazy close to Drake’s Brewing & Cleophus Quealy Beer Co) to a few hours away, like Alvarado Street Brewery out of Monterey, California. Grab your board and prepare to shred, brah.

Brewery Showcase | Brewability Lab

January 18, 2018 | Avg. Reading Time: 4 min

Many breweries begin with a familiar story: a homebrewer who’s tired of a desk job and decides to make a go at scaling up.

Brewability Lab is not one of those stories. Founder Tiffany Fixter had neither brewing experience nor a business background. What the former special education teacher did have, however, was an ambitious—even radical—idea. Why not tap into Denver’s affinity for craft beer to create jobs for adults with special needs?

What do rappers, polar bears and New England all have in common? Did you guess big furry coats? Although accurate, the correct answer is that these three things are being brought together by Listermann Brewing’s deliciously new line up of New England IPAs (NEIPA).

Great Lakes Brewing Company | Holy Moses White Ale

January 17, 2018 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

As a wee lad of 21, I waltzed into the Great Lakes Brewing Company brewpub before a baseball game with my family, and I was able to buy a beer there legally for the first time in my life. This was a wildly new experience for me, as all I had encountered in the past had been Budweiser, MGD and similar beverages. Craft beer was uncharted territory. Therefore, as I stood there with a much larger selection, I opted for something I never bothered to try before, a beer whose label stood out from the others, a beer named after the founder of the city of Cleveland: Holy Moses White Ale.

PorchDrinking Playlist | Kicking & Screaming

January 16, 2018 | Avg. Reading Time: 1 min

I though this was going to be an embarrassing deep dive into music that I used to love. My mind was fully prepared to accept that my early 20s was a weird time in my life. I mean, after all, building a Spotify playlist full of emo-ish songs should be embarrassing by itself, let alone admitting to myself that I used to love a lot of this music. I’m going to share a secret with you. It turns out that I STILL like a lot of this music. Most of it hasn’t entered my ears in ten years or more, but, for the next few weeks, you’ll have to pull me away from this playlist kicking and screaming.
