June 26, 2012 |

Deviant Dale’s IPA – Oskar Blues Brewery, Longmont, CO

I am a lover of all things hoppy. And when it comes to pale ales, Dale’s has long been a favorite of mine. Between the incredible flavor … Read More

Launch Day Night Cap

June 26, 2012 |

Exactly two months ago today I purchased the domain name porchdrinking.com.  Now, after two unbelievable month we’ve had an unbelievable day. A huge thanks to all of our viewers for making that possible and an even bigger thanks to everyone involved.

West Sixth Brewing Company

June 25, 2012 |

Shameful admission number 1: I didn’t drink quality beer until after I left Kentucky in 2006. My experience with beer consisted of keg parties with Natty or Keystone Light—beer for purposes of getting drunk or having a cheap evening.

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.

Flavorful Female Ultimate 6er

June 20, 2012 |

As a woman who enjoys beer, I would like for other women to enjoy beer as well. Looking back at my journey from Natural Light to Pliny the Younger, a few beers have stood out to me along the way. The ones I have selected for the Flavorful Female 6er highlights six styles: Wit, Pilsner, Sour, IPA, Quadruple and Stout. I would recommend trying each of these styles to appreciate new and different flavors, but the ones on my list are some of my personal favorites and what I find to be good representations of the style.

Rivertown Brewery & Barrel House | Hop Bomber Pale Ale

June 20, 2012 | 1

ABV: 5.5% | IBU: 60

Okay, here’s the thing: I’m not exactly what you would call a “beer expert.” I couldn’t tell you the difference between an IPA and an APA, and I don’t actually know what IBU’s are—I just googled that number. That being said, I do enjoy beer and I really enjoy my pal Tristan—so when he asked me if I wanted to participate in the PorchDrinking website, of course, I had to say yes (after first checking to make sure he was serious).

Trader Joe’s Brewing Company | Stockyard Oatmeal Stout

June 18, 2012 | 1

ABV: 5.2% | IBU: N/A

If I ever wanted to drink beer for breakfast—this would be the one I’d want. Every morning I eat a bowl of oatmeal and drink a cup of coffee. What better than an oatmeal stout with a hint of coffee flavor? That’s what you get with the Stockyard Oatmeal Stout. Read More

Father’s Day Drinking

June 17, 2012 | 1

Growing up, my dad didn’t drink much, if any. So I don’t really have any fond memories of grabbing beers for him while he was working in the yard. However, my grandfather drank enough for three dads. Read More
