Ok so we may be a little salty that …
So by now, you’ve probably realized we’re pretty into pop culture themed drinking games. If there’s one show we geek out on more than House of Cards it’s likely HBO’s The Newsroom (many of us here at PorchDrinking were broadcast …
Killer music, more tank tops than Justin Bieber’s wardrobe, Chivettes, KCCO Beers, and Blow up dolls, that pretty much sums up Chive Fest Denver. Our preview of the event was astonishingly accurate save for the prediction of the aforementioned blowup dolls but hey we’re all inclined to oversight once and a while.
Episode 3 of the PorchCast featured the Tristan, Justin and Sam right before July 4th, so naturally they discussed all things America! This edition took place from Sam Pike’s stoop in the heart of Uptown, so the trio took to asking …
It’s been rumored for a while now, but the announcement is finally out of Nickel Creek Reuniting. Chris Thile, Sara Watkins and brother Sean Watkins, are reuniting for the first time since they split in 2007. Trio not only announced that they’ll be kicking off their tour at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium with a 2 night engagement on April 18-19 (tickets go on sale Feb 7), but they’ve also teased a new song from their upcoming album.
Every year our team comes together to bring you your ultimate Super Bowl Bingo cards for the big game. This year we brought the house once again, so turn up the volume during those commercials and watch carefully so that you can beat out grandma your own “big game”. Oh and consider the free space any time you hear Peyton yelling “OMAHA OMAHA!”

If there’s one positive to come from the nation’s recent exposure to polar vortexes and schizophrenic weather shifts, it’s that as a society, we can all truly rally behind the rich, roast-y, sometime chocolate-y, stouts to warm our chilly bones. If you can’t already tell, I’m not the biggest fan of winter. However, winter’s one saving grace always coincides with the beginning of February in the form of Mountain Sun Brewing’s Stout Month. Last year we detailed a bit of history behind this time honored month long celebration of all beers of the stout variety in the state of Colorado. And this year we’re back with the full 2014 Mountain Sun Stout Month Lineup.
Today we’re joined by Vin, founder of Bier Battered.com, a fantastic new startup beer site. He’s guest blogging for us and sharing his showcase of Victory Brewing Company Dirt Wolf D.I.P.A. Check out his post below and also visit bierbattered.com.- …
It is becoming more and more evident that the craft beer industry is no longer just giggles and unicorns. Today it was announced in Business Lexington that the latest case of brewery versus brewery litigation came in the form of Magic Hat Brewing Company, claiming that West Sixth Brewery in Lexington, KY intentionally copied their logo and has caused them “irreparable harm”. They are now seeking damages and all profits made by West Sixth up until this point.
When you’re from Texas, you’re not just from Texas. Being from Texas is more like a lifestyle than a classification. We almost all get the state outline tattooed somewhere on our body, we shout “TEXAS!” at inappropriate times whenever we …
“…with visions of sugarplums dancing in their heads…” If by sugar, he means malt, and by plumbs, he meant prunes. If he means stomach instead of head and drunken stupor instead of visions, then he must have bellied up at The Beer Trappe on Saturday night as Southern Tier’s 2XMAS joined the tap rotation. By the way, what the crap is a sugarplum?

Ok, so you’re going to the Great American Beer Festival but there are now over 2,000 beers to choose from, what do you do? I usually suggest to first timers to pick a beer style or two (IPA, Belgian, Porters or Stouts, Fruit Beers, Sour Beers) and stick to it.
If you don’t know what style to choose or are looking for something fun and different, a friend and I came up with “Fancy Cork Night.” We go around and drink only beers that come in 750 ml bottles (Russian River has smaller ones too) usually with a fancy cork and cage. These beers are typically “Seasonal/Specialty or Sour.” It’s kind of like a delicious scavenger hunt.
As we often encourage, one of our PorchDrinking followers wanted to join us on the porch. So when Jason Behler requested to share his take on this year’s Cincinnati Brew Festival we were more than happy to give him the floor. Please welcome his contribution!
