What We’re Drinking | May 11, 2018

May 11, 2018 | Avg. Reading Time: 1 min

There are many events in May during which we can pour a glass of beer and enjoy our friends and families. For these instances, we have a variety of solid beer choices to share with everyone to celebrate. It does create quite the dilemma finding space in the fridge for the amount of food and beer that joins us throughout the month, but we can all agree this is the best problem to have. Cinco de Mayo or the Kentucky Derby could have cleared out room for some noteworthy beers to chill. To fill the void, PorchDrinkers have plenty of good candidates to consider this week on What We’re Drinking. Read More

The team is not messing around this week and the proof is in the beer! We sure do love conversing about the new beers emerging this season but I can speak for all beer lovers when I say we love to drink them even more. It has been quite an eventful month and as we prepare to jump into May, let’s take some time to see What We’re Drinking as we say farewell to April.

Walking Tree Brewery | Le Frog Aged in Red Wine Barrels

April 4, 2018 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

Depending where you are, spring has us shivering or sun bathing. Either way, it is time for the season to bring us new beers to enjoy! A French-style saison from Walking Tree Brewery with a unique twist caught my interest and they delivered a saison that automatically makes your pinky rise while drinking it. It is that fancy.

Civil Society Brewing | Fade Away

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

Porters are a favorite for many, and I recently tried one that tasted too good not to share with you all. Civil Society Brewing has a delicious porter that has been hopped with Chinook, Mosaic and Amarillo. Civil Society did not get their nationwide popularity based on porters, so I am happy to highlight Fade Away. This gem of an American Porter was released again last month with a one pack per person limit. Finally, a rotating beer made it back home to me. I could not wait to open one up, so I took the opportunity on a Fri-YAY (and also one of Florida’s lovely, random cooler days). Read More

26 Degree Brewing Company has a delicious imperial stout that I am stoked to share with you all. This stout with a raging flavor profile gets its name from a furious sea turtle that was rescued by the Loggerhead Marinelife Center in Juno Beach, Florida.

PorchDrinking Playlist | Don’t Burn the Turkey

November 14, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 1 min

It is about that time when even the individuals lacking cooking skills attempt to get in the kitchen and whip up something for their loved ones on Thanksgiving. If you are the host this year, first of all props to you! Everyone loves and appreciates you. Now, if you are a guest and would rather not make everyone pretend they are enjoying your dish, do not worry! Bring over some unique beers with a calming playlist to match. Celebrating a variety of individuals gathering at a table to give thanks and consume a delicious meal inspired this playlist. I have always enjoyed listening to a variety of genres and I hope you will too. This playlist may even set such a relaxing, easy going mood to help any stressed host from burning the turkey.

Although I love all styles of beer, I do look forward to this time of year when Oktoberfest is celebrated through festivals, beers and good times. I picked up a bottle of Coppertail Brewing’s Oktoberfest to try and this one was a great way to end this Oktoberfest with a bang.

Terrapin Beer Company | Dave’s Not Here

October 9, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 1 min

Alright hop heads, gather around! This is a good one. The flavors are apparent in the aroma alone, leaving you the only option to drink this brew from Terrapin Beer Company right away to find out how delicious it is. This bottle was poured into a pint glass on a rainy afternoon and enjoyed on the back porch. A beautiful golden amber color appeared with a thin head. I felt really fortunate to get this and was confident I would enjoy the beer.

Funky Buddha Brewery | Fire in the Hole

September 13, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

While preparing for Hurricane Irma, I opened the fridge to find this interesting treat by Funky Buddha Brewery and realized it was the perfect beer for a time like this. An explosive beer, this rotates yearly in the Little Buddha Small Batch series. Fire in the Hole takes on a whole new level of spice. This red ale brewed with raspberries and habanero is too intriguing of a combination to pass up. Fire in the Hole was a drinkable distraction from all of the hurricane preparation. It is available throughout Florida in bottles and on tap for a limited time.

Ever since Islamorada Beer Company was launched, their goal was to brew beer, that was drinkable in warm weather and they have been doing so ever since. Read More
