Downtown living gets hectic and all the noise and bustle can quickly create an uncomfortable ambiance in my brain. Life downtown seems perpetually hurried …
Every now and then we here at PorchDrinking will sit down for a little round table discussion to share our thoughts through our virtual porch. This week’s topic? Well since we’ve been going down memory lane with our fits …
2XIPA– Southern Tier Brewing Co, Lakewood, NY
One of my friends mentioned that Southern Tier could be comparable to the Great Divide of the North East. To that I said, why the hell is a north eastern …
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 …
Wild Raspberry Ale – Great Divide Brewing Co., Denver, CO
There is some misconception that all so-called fruity beers are both one-note and seasonal in nature. The misconception may be self-inflicted. Distinctly fruit beers have often been afterthoughts …
Ruination Tenth Anniversary IPA – Stone Brewery, Escondido, CA
As the name states, this beer will ruin you.

A few weeks ago, some friends and I were at Whole Foods picking up some of their amazing guacamole (seriously, best grocery store guac EVER), and decided to get some drinks as well. None of us are particularly knowledgeable about …
Ephemere Apple – Unibroue, Chambly, Quebec
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 …
Black Jack Porter – Left Hand Brewing Company, Longmont, CO
I stumbled on this beer after all of the Avery Brewing Company Tap Room staff and I were gifted a mixed case from some of …
Let’s face it, we all know it’s coming. Even though we may have a few of the details wrong (zombies prefer faces over brains—who knew?) recent events continue to validate our fears. If you don’t believe any of this, I’m having a Bath Salts party this weekend and you’re invited.
