We honored Taco Tuesday in this week’s Roundtable Discussion by asking the PorchDrinking team where to find the best tacos in their city. Denver, Cleveland, LA, Atlanta, Dallas, DC… the recommendations came pouring in and from all over.
This week’s Roundtable topic comes straight from the founder himself! In honor of May the 4th Be With You, aka Star Wars Day, we asked our staff for their favorite Star Wars characters, moments and memories. I’m not a huge sci-fi fan, but who doesn’t love those little Ewoks? And I’m thoroughly excited to see what space oddities our themed potluck brings to my office on Monday!
Somedays the only thing that can lift you up is wasting copious amounts of time looking at cute animals. Here are some of our adorable pets to ease you toward the weekend.
In Colorado, February is known as Stout Month. And it makes sense, as the weather is still wintery and you need a drink that can fill you up.
That got me thinking, what kind of month would April be? It’s unpredictable, yet smack in the middle of spring, as we get amped up for summertime.
Sunday was Easter and this week is Passover. A few week’s ago was St. Patty’s. There are holidays among us. So, in the spirit of celebrating, we asked the staff what pre-existing holiday they would grant a second day of celebration to and where they’d place the deserved repeat in the calendar year. Wouldn’t it be fun to celebrate your favorite holiday twice a year? Dream with us and share your response in the comments below.
Although the 80s where a questionable time for fashion, there ARE some 80s trends that we’d like to see brought back. Here’s what our staff members thought were some good 80s trends.
Yesterday was St. Patrick’s Day and we are not done celebrating it quite yet. Our staff ponders some of the good memories (the clear ones) associated with the holiday.
With that extra hour of daylight, spring is most definitely on the mind. So, in this week’s edition of the PorchDrinking Roundtable, we asked the team: what spring seasonals are you most excited for?
My friend Sam won’t leave me alone about making him the beer milkshake I wrote about in one of my first posts for PorchDrinking.com, and that got me thinking, “I wonder what the rest of the staff likes to make using beer.” So I asked. The result? Some of the most delicious sounding recipes you could ever fathom.
A dark room. Blankets. Beer. More hours than you care to admit spent on the couch. The question “Another?” while Netflix counts down the seconds… and then makes that decision for you. We’ve all been there.
When the third season of House of Cards releases Friday on Netflix— *screams of delight*— there are some of us who will hole up and only emerge from our blanket forts once we’ve watched all of it.
Staffers: what are your (other) favorite shows to binge watch?
AB InBev stands for Anheuser-Busch InBev, and the company makes up some popular brands such as Budweiser, Corona, Stella Artois and Beck’s. AB InBev bought its first craft brewer in 2011, Goose Island. In January, it purchased Seattle-based Elysian Brewing Co., making it the fourth craft brewery acquisition by the world’s largest beer company in the last five years.
Other craft breweries could be next. We asked our staff which breweries they would be upset to see bought by the $1 billion/year company.
In the build-up to Valentine’s Day, we asked the PorchDrinking team to share some of the most epic marriage proposals they’ve seen, experienced, or heard about. As it turns out, “epic” can take on more meanings than one…Whether you love the holiday or hate it, you’ll find something in here to set the mood you’re looking for. Read on for tales of heart-melting romantics to public displays of rejection and everything in between. Feel free to share your own “epic” marriage proposal stories and/or links in the comments below.
After an epic Super Bowl Sunday, we asked our staff for their favorite and least favorite commercials. Bet you can’t guess which one we wish we hadn’t seen…
To celebrate National Cheese Day (wait … no one else is celebrating?!) on Jan. 20, we asked the PD Staff for their favorite beer and cheese pairings. Pretty soon everyone got hungry and made a quick trip to the grocery store to stock up on the real essentials. We’d love to hear from you. Add your recommendations in the comments.
This week the PorchDrinking team took a walk down memory lane to reminisce on some of the best places they’ve enjoyed a beer. From family beach vacations to hole-in-the-wall bars in foreign lands, what seemed to make the moment in almost all cases wasn’t the quality of the beer in hand but the people they were drinking with and the new experiences they were sharing with them. We’ll cheers to that! Share your best beer moment in the comments below.
Earlier this week I was sitting at work despite a Level 2 snow emergency. Had I still been in grade school, I would have had the day off, and I would have been outside sledding, building a snowman, etc. Alas, I am an adult, and I had to dig my car out from under half a foot of snow to make the drive into the office at a measly 25mph. As you can probably tell, unlike when I was a kid, I now despise this time of year, so I thought I’d see how the rest of the staff feels about the white stuff now that we’re all grown up.
2014 was a year of good beers, but sometimes we have favorites that weren’t necessarily released this past year. We asked the PorchDrinking staff to name their most memorable beers. Little did we know, we’d get such a variety from all over the world!
This week we asked our PorchDrinking crew a question they were certainly prepared to answer: If you were introducing someone to the world of craft beer, what beer or brewery would you start them off with? The result is a fool-proof guide to masterfully convert anyone to craft beer.
