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.
Summer is in full swing and that means lots of pool time, outdoor hikes, lake excursions and hopefully some great travel destinations. No matter what you have planned for your midsummer activities, your PorchDrinking team has you covered. Here’s this week’s What We’re Drinking!
Depending on how you look it at, summer is just about halfway over. If that isn’t cause for a beer or two, then I don’t know what is. But while we still have another half to go, let’s send it off in style and have some great beers. Here’s what we’re drinking this week.
I don’t know about you, but the only thing the people I know are talking about is the newest season of Stranger Things. Don’t worry, I won’t spoil it but you should probably stop reading this and binge. Here’s what some of our writers have been sipping on while debating what the post-credit scene meant.
I’m not hungover, you’re hungover. America had a mean beer selection at her birthday bash yesterday, and if you partook in the celebration, you might be feeling a little fuzzy today like me. Between fire trucks blaring their sirens–racing to put out a dozen fires from the idiots in the world who still haven’t caught on to the fact that fireworks are flammable–and dogs barking at the constant explosions, I didn’t get a whole lotta sleep.
Nevertheless, it’s Friday, and it’s a beautiful day for a beer, right? If you have to work today, I feel your pain. If you’re off, all the more reason to start day drinking. And we’ve got a helluva list of beers to get you started in this week’s What We’re Drinking.
Summer is in full swing and for me so far, the highlight has been the Women’s World Cup games. I’ve been on the edge of my seat watching some of the most talented women in the world compete in the quadrennial matches, always with a craft beer in hand. The U.S. Women’s National Team plays today in a do-or-die match against France, here are some recommendations from your PorchDrinking team what to imbibe while cheering on the #1 team in the world in this week’s What We’re Drinking.
Today is officially the first day of summer! With summer comes a multitude of fun activities, most being in the great outdoors. One activity many craft beer enthusiasts are gearing up for is beer festival season. Get out there and have some delicious beers and remember to stay hydrated! This is What’re Drinking.
This weekend, we celebrate all the craft-beer-drinking dads out there. We celebrate the non-craft-beer-drinking dads out there too, sorta, but they’re probably not reading this, so whatever. As a father myself, my favorite thing about Father’s Day is spending the afternoon doing what I love the most: not being bothered. It’s true that on any old weekend, I could mow the lawn into nice, crispy lines, throw some meat on the grill and crack open a cold brewski. But on Father’s Day, I get to do all of that without anyone hassling me.
Anyway, the PorchDrinking team has been out and enjoying this fantastic weather! Fantastic of course being relative, and assuming you haven’t been in Colorado for the past two months. Where’s the goddamn sun? Anyway, the crew’s got some fantastic brews for you to consider sharing with dear old dad this weekend in this week’s What We’re Drinking.
School is out, and that means summer is here! As you can see, your PorchDrinking team is enjoying the outdoors before the heat of the summer officially sets in. Check out our list of delicious craft beers to pair with your time enjoying the weather in this week’s What We’re Drinking.
Another week in the books. Tons of sports ball happenings. How about them Warriors, eh??
In beer happenings…no big buy-outs, more pastry stouts, tons of DDH trüb IPAs, and not nearly enough craft lagers. Luckily summer is upon us, maybe we’ll get more crispy bois (hint hint, brewers).
So anyways, here’s What We’re Drinking:
Man, this year is just flying by! I don’t know if it’s ’cause “we’re having fun” or ’cause we’ve all been so busy, but damn…here we are–May 17! Our team has been busy little bees churning out amazing content and breaking news like the Boston Beer and Dogfish Merger, all while tending to their full-time jobs, families and friends. I think that deserves a beer, or three and that is what we did! Sit back and check out how we rewarded ourselves for kicking ass–here is what we’re drinking!
It only seems like yesterday that we were toasting to the new year, but here it is May, and festival season is in full swing. Between making pretzel necklaces, and trying to wrap our heads around the Dogfish Head/Boston Beer buyout, we had a lot of tasty beers this week. Here are a handful:
Between avoiding spoilers for Game of Thrones and Avengers Endgame, and then being stressed out watching the battle scenes in both movies, (assuming you could see the Battle of Winterfell), it’s been one exausting week. Hopefully you have recovered from both and another weekend is upon us. Here is an impressive lineup of craft beers to try courtesy of your PorchDrinking team in this week’s What We’re Drinking.
I may or may not have watched Beyoncé’s Coachella performance that premiered on Netflix multiple times. I can’t help it, she was incredible. The band and dancers were unbelievable. I can’t imagine how awesome that must have been live. We also learn that her discipline to prepare did not include beer, which makes sense even though that brings a tear to every craft beer lover’s eye. It’s okay Queen B, we have been drinking for you. Turns out myself and the PorchDrinkers are not preparing for a huge music festival performance, so bring on the beers in this weeks What We’re Drinking.
It’s been a busy start to spring, and our staff has been equally as busy attending the Craft Brewers Conference, family events, beer festivals and so much more. I really can’t believe we are already in mid-April–where did the time go?! Get comfy and see what we’re drinking!
From National Beer Day to the Craft Brewers Conference in Denver, it’s been a big week for craft beer. This was my first year to attend CBC, and if you are in the industry, this is a must do event. I learned so much and met so many great folks, not to mention all the new beers I sampled. Now that we are all back home, recovering from a beer filled week, here are some ideas for your relaxing weekend in this week’s What We’re Drinking.
