What We’re Drinking
Whether it’s Valentine’s Day or the long weekend that you are looking foward to most, there will be plenty of delicious independent craft beers out there to quench your thirst. Here’s your PorchDrinking crew’s top picks for What We’re Drinking this weekend.
One down, eleven to go. We’ll be leaving stouts, porters, and barleywines behind and move onto crispier, easy drinking lawnmower beer as spring blooms. Keep an eye out for big IPAs dry-hopped with floral forward aromatic hops, and super citrusy hazy IPAs utilizing some new exciting hop varietals. With GABF having another new IPA category, expect to see more “Emerging” IPAs (Category 65) being brewed across the country. As for what we’re drinking?
It’s still hard to believe that it’s 2020. There are a lot of people out there that were convinced we’d have flying cars and be living like the Jetsons by now. While we’re not quite there yet, we have a ton of great craft beer to explore and experience in the meantime. This is what we’re drinking.
Seventeen days into 2020 and it’s already been a year so far—Australia is on fire and we seem to have adverted WWIII (I know, super amazing topics!). Our staff is also getting back to a normal work week, tending to their families, and churning out amazing articles. So, grab a cold one and see what we’re drinking.
The Holiday’s have come and passed almost as quickly as this year as felt—in a flash! While you are nursing that “omg so much family time” eighth glass of wine or holiday travel hangover, we here at Porch Drinking were churning out some stellar holiday and end-of-year round-ups! We work hard so we can play hard. Grab some sugar cookies, chuck the dead tree outside, and see what we’re drinking.
The year is quickly coming to an end, which means it’s time for all the holiday celebrations. Naturally, you’ll need a list of great beers to take with you to all the festivities. Luckily your PorchDrinking team has you covered. Here is a list of the perfect holiday beers to help you celebrate the season.
Wow, I cannot believe I just typed “November 29, 2019” into the Post Header! Whether you have braved the shopping malls to fetch the best deals, finally coming out of your food coma, or pulling out all your twinkle lights a la Clark Griswold, our writers have been hard at work churning out some amazing pieces and what better way to do so then with a beer in hand?! Now, go get some leftover pie, throw on a blanket, and check out what we’re drinking.
This week has been a crazy one for craft beer – news of New Belgium Brewing’s acquisition by Kirin’s Little Lion World Beverage rocked the industry! As we lean into the weekend and start making plans for Thanksgiving, or your …
Most of us were hit with an Arctic blast this week, dropping temperatures in Texas by 30 degrees within an hour. Although a welcome change from the oppressive heat, things turned wintery quick! Here are a few ideas to keep you warm this week from your PorchDrinking staffers.
As usual, the crew here at PorchDrinking.com is drinking some great beers this week. You can definitely tell we’re entering the holiday season based off the beers we’re drinking. I think you can make any beer work for just about any occasion, but there are some that perfect for certain times of the year. Here’s What We’re Drinking.
How is everyone’s sugar hangover going?! I know I ate all the fun-sized skittle packs this week and very much need a candy-free weekend! Our writers have been getting in the Spooky Szn mood with some witchy brews! Kick up your feet, grab a cozy blanket, and let’s see what we’re drinking as we welcome fall into our world!
It’s that time of the year again; all things spooky, frightening and pumpkin spice is everything and everywhere. It’s a time of year when candy is shaped like spiders and gummy worms are dumped into mash tuns. It’s the perfect sugar-coma lead-up to the gluttonous holidays. While trying to not develop type 2 diabetes, check out what some of our writers have been drinking.
It finally feels more like fall here in the south and I’m ready to celebrate with a delicious fall brew. You can find my pick below, along with all the other fabulous choices from your PorchDrinking crew to get in the spirit of the season (no pumpkin beers were consumed for this post).
It feels like just yesterday it was still summer and fall wasn’t even a thought. Here we are in the second week of October and summer is long gone. Now we’re right in the middle of football season, pumpkin space lattes and soon to be Halloween. Time flies when you’re having fun, and hopefully you’re drinking good beers along the way because we definitely are. Here’s What We’re Drinking.
Fall is officially upon us, but it’s still hot as heck here in the South. Luckily, I was able to spend the last week in the Netherlands and enjoy fall-like weather. How are you celebrating the start of the fall season? Here are some delicious beers to help you enjoy the changing of seasons in this week’s What We’re Drinking.
Football season is officially in full swing! Tailgating, viewing parties, cookouts–doesn’t get much better than that. Hopefully if you’re attending any games this weekend, you’re going to a stadium that has a good craft beer selection. If you’re watching at home, why not have a little bottle share and watch the game with friends? Either way, take a page out of our book and have some delicious local craft beers. This is what we’re drinking.
I am 100% sure summer just started, and now everyone’s talking about fall. But you know what, I’m not falling for it. Football can happen in hot weather. Pumpkin beers can cool you off on a warm summer evening. Oktoberfest can wait its happy little self a few more weeks so I can cram in some more patio time. But I suppose if I have to give in and deal with cooler nights, at least I know the PorchDrinking team’s out there, drinking good beers. The PD team abides. I don’t know about you, but I take comfort in that. It’s good knowin’ they’re out there, takin’ it easy for all us sinners in this week’s What We’re Drinking.
Happy Friday kids! You made it. You know, one of the great things about beer is that you really can associate every season with something pleasant. Winter time? No problem we’ve got stouts. Summer? Break out the lagers, ball games and long nights on the patio. But when fall starts to creep in, even if it’s 100 degrees where you’re at right now, there’s something really special about fall. Football. Oktoberfest. Pumpkin beer, if that’s your sort of thing. And of course, the Great American Beer Festival is just around the corner. It’s a helluva time to be a beer drinker, and this week the PorchDrinking staff is showin’ off again with a ridiculous lineup of beers in this week’s What’ We’re Drinking.
So school has started and it’s supposed to be sorta the beginning of fall. I don’t know where you are right now, but where I’m sitting we are about to hit a record consecutive days with 100-degree heat. It’s really, really hot. So what goes well with the insanely ridiculous heat? Air conditioning and a great craft beer. I’m probably the pickiest about my beer choices this time of year than any other, so take a look at what the PorchDrinking team is enjoying to help you beat the heat (unless you live somewhere with pleasant weather–in which case these are still great choices–and can I come visit?).
Many places around the country are experiencing record-breaking temperatures right now. Hopefully all of our readers are staying cool and hydrated. The crew here at PorchDrinking is doing our very best to make sure we’re staying hydrated with the very best hop water we can find! This is this week’s What We’re Drinking.
