January 9, 2017 |

By Devin Caster and Jose Minaya

Tampa, unlike many cities around the country, is a sprawling city filled with small communities. You’ve likely seen the adverts for Busch Gardens, the Tampa Bay Lightning and Buccaneers and the beaches lining the Gulf. PorchDrinking would like to take you further into the city to see what more it has to offer in beer, community and culture. We have two PorchDrinkers native to Tampa who have made it their mission to provide you a quality experience filled with delicious food, great beer and fun entertainment. Read More

PorchDrinking Staff’s 2017 New Beer Resolutions

December 29, 2016 |

Welcome to 2017! Congratulations on making it through another year without flying cars, middle-class suburbs on Mars and Dippin’ Dots becoming the ice cream of the present.

Oh, and all the beer that will be brewed and poured! So, sit back, relax and share with us what New Beer Resolutions you have for the upcoming year. Read More

BREAKING | Anheuser-Busch Acquires Karbach Brewing

November 3, 2016 |

The dominos continue to fall in Anheuser-Busch InBev’s global quest for beer domination. This morning the world’s largest brewery conglomerate announced the acquisition of Karbach Brewing.

The Houston-based brewery was founded in 2011 and quickly grew in production from 17,000 barrels in 2013 to upward of 40,000 a year later. Karbach also went on to open a second $15 million brewpub location in 2015, expanding their production capabilities with plans to hit a goal of 150,000 barrels a year within the next three years.

The Great Pumpkin Beer Debate

October 11, 2016 |

To gourd or not to gourd. That is what pumpkin ales and lagers have come down to. With how much controversy pumpkins bring to the table, I fear pumpkin pies are next! Wanting to be civil about this, PorchDrinking.com sat down two of our writers to …express what side of the pie they prefer. It’s Danele Bova vs. Mathew Powers in this no holds barred Gourd Match. No rules. No tricks or treats. The gloves are off and it’s time to carve out a solution to the pumpkin-beer debate. Who do you support? What pumpkin party will get your vote? Read More

Op-Ed from Breckenridge Brewery & Anheuser Busch’s The High End

June 17, 2016 | 7

If the results of last week’s shakeup involving the Colorado Brewers Guild, and the newly formed Craft Beer Colorado were any indication, the craft beer industry has fallen on confusing time. While the rift between the two groups derived from a number of varying factors, one of the key points of contention involved the fact that Anheuser-Busch owned, Breckenridge Brewery’s, Todd Usry still remains a CBG board member.

3 People Who Need a Beer | Week of Aug. 28

August 28, 2015 |

The world we live in does not regard us kindly.

I thought myself adequately hardened for the rigors of urban living, having many years living near the shadows of tall buildings now under my belt. I had steeled myself … Read More

3 People Who Really Need a Beer This Week

July 17, 2015 |

There’s another comic book movie coming out today.

‘Fatigue’ doesn’t adequately describe my feelings now that we’ve reached Ant-Man, the twelfth movie to come out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe in seven years. It’s more like being a lapsed Catholic with a devout family—twice a year you have to attend and pay tithes to the Church of Greater Disney Properties lest you attract the derision and judgement of your peers. I like Paul Rudd and I like fun summer movies, but I’ll probably just watch Wet Hot American Summer instead thank you very much. Read More

3 People Who Really Need a Beer This Week – July 2

July 2, 2015 |

The flipping of the calendar to July usually gets people excited for the debauchery and spectacle of July 4 and for another whole month of summer. But if you’re anything like me it only reminds you that the season … Read More

Four Things to Drink In This, The Worst Time of the Year for Sports

February 20, 2014 | 4

February– it’s the worst, right? A month so devoid of meaning, fun, and intrigue that it was docked two days and given a holiday on which couples flaunt their happiness over single people (this is said with all due respect to Black History Month, which we can all agree got the shaft by being placed in February). The Super Bowl has occurred, thus ending football and now all that is left are some college basketball games of marginal importance before March Madness, a bunch of utterly meaningless NBA action, and the scrapbooking convention of sporting events that is the Winter Olympics. Oh, and hockey, I suppose, though here in Ohio I’m more likely to be hit by a Justin Bieber-expelled loogie than meet an ardent supporter of the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Ultimate 6er for the “Garden State” Soundtrack

July 11, 2012 |

I’ve been undergoing a spate of crippling nostalgia lately. It hasn’t been anything too depressing; entire afternoons squandered on multiple viewings of Clueless and American Pie interspersed with Daria marathons. The normal stuff. Fortunately, I’ve stopped short … Read More

As a reward for finishing my most recent article (Editor’s note: 1,000 words over a week and a half- hardly a Asimovian pace) I plunged into a snifter of … Read More

Sixpoint Brewery | Righteous Ale

June 22, 2012 |

ABV: 6.3% | IBU: 57

New favorites can be a funny thing; when something comes along that radically alters your taste—be it a song, a dinner or a philosophy—that newfound love can quickly change into elitism. The excitement about a new discovery devolves into myopia, like a two-year-old demanding Skittles for dinner. I was guilty of this in recent history when I was too quick to anoint India Pale ales as the only style of beer I would ever need to drink after my palette was awakened by Dogfish Head’s 60 Minute IPA. Though I’ve spent the last few years imbibing anything with IPA or “hop” and an emphatic qualifier in the name, I have equally denied myself that exciting feeling of discovery by eschewing all beers that didn’t promise my body weight in hops in each sip.
