What We’re Drinking
The past few weeks have been full of ups and downs with Natural Disasters disrupting the lives of many across the United States as well as remembering the 16th anniversary of one of the toughest days in American history – September 11. The PorchDrinking team stayed safe during these events, and our thoughts are with those who were severely affected. To get your mind off the images of flooding and catastrophe, here is What We’re Drinking this week.
Labor Day has come and gone, and summer has gone with it. We now find ourselves taking our kids to school, choosing hot coffee over iced and watching terrified as another hurricane hurtles towards us. This hasn’t completely dampened our spirits, though, because we have something wonderful and uplifting. We have something that will lift us up and keep morale from plummeting too far. Don’t tell anyone, but our secret is beer. This is What We’re Drinking.
Summer may be wrapping up, but the steady flow of delicious beers to our faces is not slowing down. We’re still going to beer gardens, ball games and, yes, our beloved porches. One of our writers even toasted the arrival of his very first adorable, 7-pound homebrewing apprentice! The craft beer excitement is still very real for us at PorchDrinking, so I hope you are ready to find out What We’re Drinking!
It has been one celestially wild week here in the states. Monday saw the Great American Solar Eclipse, giving all us beer peeps even more reason to reach for space themed brews to celebrate such a momentous occasion. The fun didn’t stop all week long as we at PorchDrinking enjoyed several new beers. Check out this week’s What We’re Drinking.
It would appear that the PorchDrinkers had a slow week. Personally, I found that I was getting too fat. This fatness led to a regimented, but not necessarily strict, diet and a week of “detox.” Not to make excuses, but I wouldn’t be surprised if other members of the PorchDrinking staff are finding themselves in the same boat. Sometimes you just need a short break from beer. Luckily, we always have a few die-hards to keep us afloat! This is What We’re Drinking.
This week at PorchDrinking, we enjoyed a wide array of craft beers from across the country. At the height of Summer, our team has enjoyed delicious beer at festivals, concerts, cross-country trips, and a slew of outdoor activities. Check out the behind the scenes from this week’s brewventures. This is What We’re Drinking.
It’s been a ridiculously great week of PorchDrinking. Our staff cracked into some truly great beers, which should make you VERY jealous. Whether you’re in the mood for beers that are black as the night, sour as a lemon or hoppy like… well… a hop, we have a beer for you. This is What We’re Drinking!
Have you ever taken an awesome beercation (that’s beer + vacation) to an awesome city, let’s say, an awesome city like Denver? And while you were on said beercation, you drank quite a bit of amazing beer, so much so that you needed to take a little break once you got back home from your beercation because it was just so much beer? But then all your friends started posting pictures of the delicious brews they were enjoying this past week and now you’re having some serious FOMO. Maybe it’s just me. If you’re in my position, hopefully these photos will ease your pains. This is What We’re Drinking.
If you’re looking for a little inspiration, look no further than this edition of What We’re Drinking. The PorchDrinkers may have only made six submissions this week, but we’ve still got some doozies to share, including a special selection for PorchDrinking’s fifth anniversary! Make sure you’re sitting down, and prepare to be in awe of What We’re Drinking!
The summer is heating up. How do you like to keep cool? A dip in the pool. A hammock in the shade. A nice cold beer? Yep, that’s the one. Us too. Here’s how we’re keeping cool this week. This is What We’re Drinking.
This week, the PorchDrinkers raised many a glass in honor of the United States’ 241st birthday. I mean, we would have drunk them all anyway, but I promise that we were all thinking about America as we poured them down our throats. Pinky swear! Beer is brewed in all 50 states and is sometimes the only thing that many of us have in common. Hoist a celebratory pint, finish reading NPR’s tweets of the Declaration of Independence, and check out What We’re Drinking!
It’s officially summertime and that means we’re drinking all sorts of… well hell, we’re still drinking everything! We love well-made lagers, fruity wheats and sours, and the occasional high-octane IPA. Give us all the beers! The holiday weekend may be upon us, but that didn’t slow us down this week. This is What We’re Drinking.
I didn’t think the PorchDrinkers were sampling much beer this week. However, when I asked around, I learned that they had been drinking a ton of great beer. As it turns out, they were just having too much fun! They didn’t want to spoil it by sending pictures to the lame What We’re Drinking guy. They’re just too dang cool to be associated with a wet blanket like me. I get it. While I’m in my room eating a gallon of ice cream by myself, feel free to peruse this week’s What We’re Drinking. You can let yourselves out when you’re done. I don’t think you want to talk to me anyway.
PorchDrinking season is officially upon us! Our nearest stellar body is pouring it’s warming countenance upon us, and it is glorious. It is important that you all show the utmost respect during this holy time of year. Dust of the adirondack chairs, oil the chain on the porch swing, and get the dead leaves out of the horseshoe pits. It’s summer, and this is What We’re Drinking.
What, did you think it was only Thursday? Oh, the glory of a 4 day work week. PorchDrinkers around the country imbibed in some delicious brews over Memorial Day Weekend. Check out What We’re Drinking this week.
Why doesn’t anyone ever remind me that a vacation with kids is not a vacation at all? I’m exhausted and need another vacation. Luckily, this is Memorial Day weekend! Once you add a vacation day into the mix and account for my unorthodox schedule, I’m looking at a 6-day weekend! Woot! Though there will be much beer consumption over the next few days, it’s now time to reflect on the beers that have already sacrificed themselves for our enjoyment over the last week. These beers are neither kid-tested nor mother-approved. This is What We’re Drinking.
This week, PorchDrinkers all around the country are celebrating American Craft Beer Week. We’re enjoying local craft beer and events while spreading the love and culture of craft beer. Check out What We’re Drinking this week!
I’m jealous of every PorchDrinker this week. I have been working too much to enjoy any fine craft brews. Luckily, I get to live vicariously through each and every one of them. Don’t worry about me, fair readers. My liver shall be vindicated next week. I’ll be vacationing in Myrtle Beach and will have nothing to do except imbibe. Does anyone have bail money to lend me in advance? This is What We’re Drinking!
We’re in a post apocalyptic world, guys. Anything could happen. Maybe we’ll start advertising for… oh never mind. That would NEVER happen! Let’s focus on what’s important this week. This is What We’re Drinking.
