Lindsay Krumel

Lindsay’s love for craft beer began at her hometown brewery, Jackie O’s. Since then, she has lived all over the great state of Ohio and experienced some magnificent brews along the way. When she’s not working at the Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine at Ohio University (GO BOBCATS!), she can usually be found with a drink in her hand. No matter the beverage, it’s safe to say PorchDrinking is her favorite pastime.

Ultimate 6er – Big Ten Football Part I: Leaders Division

October 2, 2013 | 1

By now you all are used to me basing my Ultimate 6ers on popular TV shows. This time around, I’m doing something a little different. Inspired by the Ohio State v. Wisconsin game that took place this past Saturday, I’ve decided to do a beer for every team in the Big Ten. Lucky for me the conference actually has 12 teams split into two divisions, Leaders and Legends. This week’s six pack will focus on the Leaders, and you’ll notice each team is matched with a beer made in its state. Read More

Roundtable Discussion | Fall Favorites

September 18, 2013 |

The official start of fall is rapidly approaching, so I asked our staff what they love most about what is quickly becoming my favorite season. Personally, I’m enjoying the cooler weather, my pumpkin spice candle, pumpkin beer and the return … Read More

Stone Brewing Company – RuinTen IPA

September 16, 2013 |

ABV: 10.8%

IBUs: 110

Our awesome founder Tristan Chan came to the great state of Ohio over Labor Day weekend for the Gentlemen of the Road Stopover in Troy, and with him he brought a suitcase full of beer. I mean, would any of us expect anything less? His only requirement was that I write up a review on the bomber (22 fluid ounces) Stone RuinTen IPA, so here I am. Read More

Yazoo Brewing Company

September 9, 2013 |

Ten days ago my cousin Jacquelyn and I were on a girls’ trip down in Nashville. I’d never been before, and on my list of must-sees was Yazoo Brewing Company. Because Yazoo only distributes in Tennessee, Alabama and … Read More

Thunderhead Brewing Company – Cropduster

August 21, 2013 |

ABV: 6.5%

IBU: 65

Remember when I told you that for Christmas my mom bought my dad a craft beer subscription, and that every 3 months he gets a 12 pack with four different beers? Well it turns out it was kind of a gift for me too, because this is the 2nd one I’ve had the chance to review. Thunderhead Brewing Company Cropduster is a Mid-American IPA out of Kearney, Nebraska. While the name may not be the most flattering, it certainly makes sense coming from the heart of the U.S. agriculture sector. Read More

Great Lakes Brewing Company – Silver & Gold IPL

August 13, 2013 |

ABV: 7.5%

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of visiting Chicago. I was in town for the wedding of a very special friend of mine, and while there I stayed with my pal and all-around awesome dude … Read More

Mt. Carmel Brewing Company – Summer Wheat Ale

July 30, 2013 |

ABV: 4.8%

IBUs: 34

Tonight I went grocery shopping for the first time in, oh, about six weeks. Yeah, I was living on pasta and eggs. Better than ramen I guess. Anyway, I saw a beer on the shelf I hadn’t ever noticed before, Mt. Carmel‘s Summer Wheat Ale. With it being the heart of the summer, I decided to pick it up. Read More

I know I’m a little late since summer officially started a week ago, but I couldn’t resist showcasing Anderson Valley Brewing Company’s Summer Solstice. According to their website, “it’s become affectionately known as ‘cream soda for … Read More

While some of our favorite shows have ended for the season, or in some cases for good, there are plenty more starting up this summer. The PorchDrinking staff shares which ones they’re looking most forward to.

Schlafly Bottleworks

June 19, 2013 |

Over President’s Day Weekend I gave up going to Cincinnati Winter Beerfest and made my way west to St. Louis. That Saturday, my friends Christine and Samantha and I decided to venture to Schlafly Bottleworks. Read More

Madtree Brewing Company – Psychopathy

June 11, 2013 |

ABV: 6.9%

I went to Jungle Jim’s today hoping to find my beloved Jackie O’s, but alas, their cans weren’t there. I did however stumble upon a brew from right here in Cincinnati, Madtree Brewing Company’s Psychopathy India Pale Ale. Read More

Blue Moon Brewing Company – Agave Nectar Ale

May 29, 2013 |

ABV: 5.6%

IBUs: 14

I’m not going to lie, I’m not the biggest fan of Blue Moon, but the last time I was at the store I saw their new summer seasonal, Agave Nectar Ale. I originally didn’t pick it up because I’ve tried agave beer before, but I just couldn’t get it off my mind. So today when I went to the grocery I decided to give it a go. Read More

Aviator Brewing Company – Hogwild India Pale Ale

May 3, 2013 |

ABV: 6.7%

IBU: a lot (per their website)

Last weekend I went home and, because my parents were in Denver (jealous!), the fridge was pretty empty food wise. Lucky for me there was plenty of beer though! There was the usual Yuengling, some Great Lakes, and then I saw it: Aviator Brewing Company’s Devils Tramping Ground Tripel. Unfortunately, that’s not what I’m reviewing tonight. However, I am showcasing another Aviator beer, their Hogwild India Pale Ale. Read More

Ultimate 6er – Mad Men

April 24, 2013 | 1

In honor of its return to the airwaves, and sticking with my television theme, I opted to focus today’s article on the main characters of AMC’s hit period drama Mad Men. All I can say is, I hope this 6er is better than their previews this season.

Kona Brewing Co. – Koko Brown

April 17, 2013 |

26.7 IBU

5.5% ABV

What I went to Jungle Jim’s looking for and what I came home with were two completely different beers. Nevertheless, I was pleased with my choice. Kona Brewing Company’s Koko Brown is an ale brewed with coconut, and I absolutely LOVE coconut! Coconut candy, coconut shrimp, coconut rum…you name it, I want it. Unfortunately, I know a lot of people who don’t enjoy it as much as I do, so I don’t get to eat it (or in this case drink it) as often as I would like. Read More

Samuel Adams – Alpine Spring

April 8, 2013 |

5.5% ABV

18 IBUs

I am all up on spring beers. Why? Because I am ready for it to be warm. Seriously. It’s April, and it’s still in the 40s. WTF!? Samuel Adams Alpine Spring has been on the shelf for awhile, but I refused to buy it until it was actually spring. Well here we are, and it still feels like winter. Oh well, at least the sun is out…I guess? Read More

Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Co – Canoe Paddler

March 27, 2013 |

ABV: 5%

Spring has officially arrived, but with a large portion of the country buried under snow from yet another winter storm, it doesn’t quite feel like it. For those of us without a nice, warm spring break to look forward to, I give you Leinenkugel’s Canoe Paddler.

Harpoon Brewery – Celtic Red

March 14, 2013 |

ABV 5.4%

IBU 26

In honor of the upcoming holiday, I decided to pick up a 6er of Harpoon Celtic Red. I’m no Irish Red Ale savant, but this is definitely one I haven’t seen before. It’s only fitting though that it comes from Harpoon. They’re the largest craft brewery in New England, and they’ve been brewing in South Boston since 1987. Read More
