What We’re Drinking
SF Beer Week has come and gone, but friends, there is no one more excited it’s over than my dog! You read that right, Little Juno is more than happy her furrents aren’t out gallivanting around the East Bay and are available for cuddle sessions on a Thursday evening. No matter what your local weather, be it snow or sun, our writers are enjoying some tasty beverages. Kick up your feet, crack a cold one, and see what we’re drinking.
Valentine’s Day has come and gone, but our undying love for craft beer shall live on forever. There is nothing more beautiful than malt, hops and yeast working together to birth a delicious brew. I’m getting a little teary eyed just thinking about it. Our team of hopeless romantics has sought out some truly tasty beers this week! This is What We’re Drinking!
January was dragging by slowly, but it is finally gone. Hopefully, Punxsutawney Phil will have avoided his shadow by now and delivered unto us an early spring. If he decrees that there will be six more weeks of winter, at least we can take solace in the fact the there are still PorchDrinkers out there. They will continue to seek out great beer and tell us all about it. So raise a glass to our intrepid team and enjoy What We’re Drinking!
As the first month of the new year fades away, we are all left with warm thoughts of holidays past and look forward to the next three-day weekend! I am looking forward to that extra Monday off after San Francisco Beer Week 2018 though; it all starts with the SFBW Gala in San Francisco on February 9, and ends with some chill events on the 18th. The 19th I fully plan on sleeping in and repairing what is left of my liver. I hope you enjoy seeing What We are Drinking this past week!
As it turns out, Dry January can even affect a beer blog! We didn’t have a ton of submissions from the PorchDrinking team this week, but they are all good ones. Quantity isn’t always the most important thing, people. It’s going to be mighty cold out there on that porch swing, but these beers are all worth it. This is What We’re Drinking.
I can’t believe it’s already 2018 and I haven’t written 2017 yet! Anyone out there set some resolutions? The PD crew did, you can check them out here. If your resolution is to get fit, drink more beer, learn how to noodle, or just be sure to drink enough water on a daily basis (this is one of mine) just know you can do it! Now, wipe that sweat off your brow, hit the showers, and see What We’re Drinking.
I hope you’ve had a wonderful year, fellow porch drinkers–we here at PD sure have! From Craft Beer Week to crazy beer releases to sharing tasty brews with friends and family and more, we are so glad to have been able to share it all with you, too! Before you ring in the new year, take a look at What We’re Drinking!
The world may be spiraling into chaos, but death and taxes aren’t the only sure things. You can also bet your bonnet that the PorchDrinking team will continue to drink phenomenal beers and then brag to you about it on Friday. It’s important to spend your life focusing on the positive things, and then share those beautiful moments with others. That’s what we’re doing. This is What We’re Drinking.
I don’t know about you, but I am still shocked by the FCC’s Net Neutrality repeal vote yesterday. I really thought our government would do better for the American people! I am also putting my faith into the many groups that are filing lawsuits to reverse this decision. On a brighter note, our PorchDrinking crew are spending this pre-holiday week drinking some great brews. Light the fire, get cozy, and see What We’re Drinking.
Once upon a time, an intrepid fellowship of beer bloggers set out on a mission to consume the most delicious beers on Earth. Along their way, they encountered many struggles: day jobs, family obligations and whalez that could simply not be caught. We, however, are not here to lament in their failures but to celebrate their victories. Raise your glasses to those PorchDrinkers who came before you and behold What We’re Drinking.
I hope you all had a wonderful turkey day and have thoroughly recovered from the food coma. I’ve been spending my week entering a new career phase and new company. Leaves fall, seasons change and our team is spending their fall evenings digging into some tasty brews. Kindle a fire, throw on a blanket and get ready to see What We’re Drinking.
Yesterday was Thanksgiving. On this day of over-indulgence in food and drink, the PorchDrinkers did not eschew their primary mission: to drink great beer. Not every meal may have been traditional, but we all had freely flowing craft beer in common. Whether you drank out of pure holiday spirit, or you were trying to avoid discussing politics with an elderly Fox News-viewing relative, beer is a required libation at any holiday meal. Grandma, Uncle Joe and Sister-in-Law Carol, this is What We’re Drinking.
With the new season approaching, it invites change. Change in weather, leaves falling, families coming together from far away and, for me at least, ending a job at a company I’ve been at forever! We here at PorchDrinking will be searching for clever ways to share tasty brews with this wet weather, I’m thinking hammocks! Cozy up with a blanket, start a nice fire and dive into What We’re Drinking.
Every week, the PorchDrinking staff puts their livers through a crucible of pain in order to find the most beautiful brews. This week was no exception. Yes, we did need copious amounts of Pedialyte, but we did preserve through the morning-after headaches and greasy diner breakfast platters. With the weekend fast approaching, we present you with a few new options. This is What We’re Drinking.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been so busy this week prepping and packing for my trip to Colorado! My boyfriend and I are planning on hitting multiple breweries on our road trip up and sharing that sweet California craft beer with them! Plus, we aren’t going to the beer-centric part of Colorado, but to Hotchkiss, which is closer to the border of Utah. I can’t wait to share some good beer with my family and relax! Pull on your most favorite blanket and check out What We’re Drinking.
Once upon a time, there was an intrepid fellowship of PorchDrinkers. They had to destroy a ring in a volcano (or something like that), but they could only truly break the ring’s evil curse if they drank every craft beer in America. What follows is an account of the battles they have fought and won during the past week. Fear not, dear readers, our heroes WILL complete their quest to free the world from its horrifying sobriety. This is What We’re Drinking.
It’s been a crazy couple weeks here in the Bay Area. The North Bay is on fire, taking so many people’s livelihoods, homes, and wineries, and now Santa Cruz is on fire. Our air quality was on par with Beijing! Not to mention some people took advantage of the fires and looted, so not okay. This week the air quality has gotten back to tolerable levels and the relief efforts have been amazing to see roll in. Lots of Bay Area Breweries and Tap rooms held fundraisers for different funds! Take a load off and take a look at What We’re Drinking!
Have you been having trouble discovering new beers to try? Well, don’t worry. The PorchDrinking staff has been out discovering tasty brews, so we thought we would point you in the right direction. Sit down and take a look at What We’re Drinking!
It’s October, fall is in the air and everyone is inhaling anything pumpkin flavored. I don’t know about you, but I always look forward to this time of year so I can start drinking pumpkin-flavored beers and coffees. There seems to be a controversy when it comes to pumpkin beer though. Both sides are determined to prove their point and convert the other. No matter which side you are on, I think we can all agree that fall brings many things, good or bad, but it always brings forth the beginning of Stout Season! Pick out your favorite stout and get ready to see What We’re Drinking this week!
It’s almost October. Why is it so damn hot outside? I’m usually a lover of spring and fall, so this unseasonable warmth has to stop. Instead of enjoying Porters and Brown Ales outside, I’m drinking Session IPAs and Pilsners in the air conditioning like some kind of animal! When will the insanity end?! In an attempt to stay cool and kill time while autumn drags its feet, I prepared a special double-issue for you to enjoy. Fire up the AC, pack yourself in ice and get ready to see What We’re Drinking.
