What We’re Drinking
I’m not going to lie to you. It’s been a week. Not only did my Philadelphia Eagles lose their way out of the playoffs, but I was also in a minor car accident. The biggest tragedy of them all, however, is the fact that I have not imbibed in one. single. beer. None. It’s quite sad. I will be rectifying that fact this weekend, if I live that long. Until then, I invite you to join me in living vicariously through the rest of the PorchDrinking staff. This is What We’re Drinking.
You made it through the first full week of the year! Pat yourself on the back, or better yet, pour yourself a beer. I started off my first week paddle boarding and hanging out with friends at the sandbar, and I’m ending my week going to an infamous beer festival in Fort Lauderdale. This year has treated me well and I love highlighting the best moments in between grad school and work. We are all about that life-work balance at PorchDrinking, and we would love to share some fine beers to lead you in the right direction.
Welcome to 2019 fellow Craft Beer enthusiasts!! If you are like me, you are easing back into the work week and might be thinking “ughhhh I don’t wanna go…why do I even work?! Oh yeah, food & bills & beer…better …
We are officially in the middle of the holiday week, and it’s probably time for a nice break from all the festivities. Here is what your favorite PorchDrinkers are enjoying this holiday season, it’s time for another installment of What We’re Drinking.
I don’t know about you, but it has been one hell of a week! With our upcoming train trip to Colorado to spend Christmas with my family, everything has been a blur! I literally thought Wednesday was Thursday and tapped our writers for their last submissions for this article, like “get them in now so I can post this up!” Whomp Whomp! But today is Friday for real and boy can I really use a cold one. Check out all the festive brews out team is downing, this is What We’re Drinking!
You know what’s great about beer? Whether you love the holidays or find yourself embracing your inner Scrooge, beer tastes sweet either way. It’s either used for a celebration or for comfort, depending on your current level of holiday stress. If you’ve gotten all your shopping done, gold star for you. You’re quite a few steps ahead of me. But if you’re forgetting to stock your beer fridge in lieu of stocking stockings, the PorchDrinkers have some great ideas for inspiration this week to fill the craft beer void in your life. This is What We’re Drinking.
Holiday party season is in full swing, and what goes better with the cooler weather than delicious full-flavored beers? Take a few tips from the PorchDrinking crew and bring one of these beauties to your holiday party. This is What We’re Drinking.
The air is finally chilly where I live in Florida, so we finally feel the holiday spirit minus the snow. Around this time, we tend to have a lot on our plate, even after we think there’s no way to fill up our plate more than we did on Thanksgiving. There is an endless amount of activities to enjoy coming up, plus tons of beer options to choose from while we are in the prime of the season. My best advice is to take it slow to enjoy every moment. Many craft beer drinkers would agree when I say the best way to embrace the moment is with a great brew by your side. This week, the PorchDrinkers have a stellar lineup to inspire the joy a craft can conjure.
I just got finished shoveling snow and am about ready to start my commute to work. There’s no beer in my immediate future, but luckily I can live vicariously through the craft-brewed adventures of the PorchDrinking.com staff. This is What We’re Drinking.
Election day has come and gone, leaving either a wave of disappointment or excitement in its wake. People hit the polls in record numbers to exercise their right to vote, and crowds gathered across the country in various venues to await the results. No matter what side of the fence you are on, I think we can all agree it was an invigorating and exhausting week. Time to sit back, take stock of your voting efforts and grab a beer. If you need some good ideas on a which brew to choose, the PorchDrinking staff has you covered, here’s What We’re Drinking.
We have a fresh month ahead of us, and to me the correct way to start a month is having some fresh beer to match. I don’t know about you, but I’m ready to turn over a new leaf this fall by forgetting the candy coma I endured earlier this week… that was rough. Is a candy coma a medical condition? If so, I had it and I didn’t even trick or treat. Chuck that leftover candy (if you even have any) and pour a fresh beer instead. We have some great options from the PorchDrinkers this week, so scroll down to see What We’re Drinking.
Another week has come and gone. Fall weather has finally settled upon my corner of southeastern Pennsylvania. Breweries across in this neck of the woods fired up their patio heaters to keep things cozy as the temperatures dropped. This cool snap didn’t stop anyone from enjoying a beer outside. Patrons dressed in their finest puffy vests and settled in for lively sessions. I even found an hour in my schedule to join them! Other PorchDrinkers across the country were enjoying great beers, too! This is What We’re Drinking.
Festival season is in full swing, and the PorchDrinking staff has been busy putting together a collection of the week’s finest brews. Festival season in fall can mean unpredictable weather, and in some parts of the country the unpredictable weather is serious; we don’t take that lightly. We hope everyone is staying as safe as possible with friends and family.
Fall is in full swing and if you find yourself searching for a good beer to watch all of the good sports and fall shows with, we’ve got you covered! Between the changes the season brings and the Oktoberfest-ivities, there is a countless array of beer waiting to be tasted. We have a wonderful selection in this week’s What We’re Drinking to replenish your palate.
As the season is trying its hardest not to let fall happen, I am soaking up all the sunshine I can! The leaves are changing colors, littering the grounds; the sun is going to bed earlier, and the moon — I mean… it’s been bright and huge, I love it! I personally love fall and it doesn’t mean the end of porch drinking weather. So bundle up, light the firepit, and see What We’re Drinking.
In the 30 hours prior to writing this post, I have spent three hours at the gym, 16 hours at work and zero hours in bed. The first head-cold of the year is invading my body, and I’m sitting here typing on autopilot. My stream of consciousness has not yet devolved into an ejaculation of grammarless nonsense words. It’s honestly a mystery how I’m managing to function at all. At least cheeseburger beautiful microscope running jump laundry! Crap. Brain… failing… This is What We’re Drinking.
This week has been an emotional one as we honor the anniversary of 9/11 and watch the crazy number of storms brewing in our oceans. Even as I write this, there is a deluge happening outside my window, which means it’s time to kick back, grab a good book and a cold beer. My fellow PorchDrinking staff found some great brews this week, along with some much needed sunshine. This is What We’re Drinking.
What is the best part about a long holiday weekend? Another weekend shortly after and it is here! I don’t know about you but I feel I always need a vacation after a vacation. That might possibly be due to visiting breweries non-stop. There are plenty of awesome taprooms and beers to share with everyone. The PorchDrinkers are back again to catch up on all of the great craft beer emerging into this fall season. Take a seat, welcome the weekend and find out What We’re Drinking.
Happy Friday, fellow porch drinkers! As you may know, we here at PorchDrinking love us some craft beers. I, myself, spent the majority of yesterday with a glass in my hand and wasn’t able to get this article out in time. I told them “…and then just kept drinking after” and they were okay with that! Be sure to visit your local breweries, get some cans to-go and see What We’re Drinking.
Enjoying this last month of the summer is bittersweet. Before you bring out the fall decor, pause to soak in the last moments of summer with a new beer. Whether it is a style you always like drinking, or you are feeling brave enough to try something completely new, there are plenty of ideas from the PorchDrinkers this week.
