What We’re Drinking | November 2, 2018

November 2, 2018 | Avg. Reading Time: 1 min

We have a fresh month ahead of us, and to me the correct way to start a month is having some fresh beer to match. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to turn over a new leaf this fall by forgetting the candy coma I endured earlier this week… that was rough. Is a candy coma a medical condition? If so, I had it and I didn’t even trick or treat. Chuck that leftover candy (if you even have any) and pour a fresh beer instead. We have some great options from the PorchDrinkers this week, so scroll down to see What We’re Drinking.

Let’s break the ice already, hockey season is finally here! If the release of NHL ’19 and pre-season isn’t enough, you’re probably missing a beer.

Picking up a new hobby or craft is pretty common during the Summer, but if your latest DIY project was a huge fail, fear not and let craft beer become your new hobby; it’s ours! It is guaranteed to be more relaxing than getting rained on while painting the house or the “new” Summer deck that became a hazard area at your last BBQ. The PorchDrinking staff’s got your back and have plenty of beers to share in this week’s What We’re Drinking.

That is right, we are welcoming those seasonal beers that we associate with summer fun. Those who are getting ready to travel might not be near their usual beer spots, but the PorchDrinkers have some tasty brews to keep your eye out for and here they are in this week’s What We’re Drinking.

BAD SONS Beer Company | Conn Ale

June 7, 2018 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

A microbrewery in Derby, Connecticut is catching some attention due to its beer that is straight bad. Not bad in a literal way, but bad in the “that’s what kids are saying” these days way. BAD SONS Beer Co. offers an abundance of beers, but I want to talk about a specific one that was so good, I checked it in with my baggage on my flight home. If you are looking for a pale ale to satisfy the long drinking days ahead this summer, look no further — Conn Ale is here.

Fort George Brewery | From Astoria With Love

May 28, 2018 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

Love can be complicated, but those complications are usually worth one’s while. Fort George Brewery managed to capture love in a can with From Astoria With Love, their Russian Imperial Stout. I knew I had to get this beer from Oregon back to my home in Florida. Luckily, the airport in Portland had a couple of cans left, so now is a good time to share this bliss with you.

The disappointment of finishing a unique beer that was so good is something I am sure we have all run into. We stare into the empty glass oh so sadly/dramatically. The non-stop downpour in the Southeast adds a more dramatic effect in my case. All that is left is the lacing. Now we have to find one that was just as good or better?! PorchDrinkers know this struggle and have got you covered in all regions. Check out What We’re Drinking this week to fill that glass up with something great again. Read More

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

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 | Ziko’s Rage

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.

Coppertail Brewing Co. | Oktoberfest

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

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.

Located in the Upper Florida Keys, Islamorada takes on popularity for being the fishing capital of the world. Islamorada Beer Company has been providing the locals with quality craft beer since 2014, when a group of friends were inspired to brew styles that would complement the Florida way of life. The hot weather, mixed with outdoor activities, does not change the desire to enjoy a quality brew. 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
