Roundtable Discussion | All-Star Beer TeamJuly 29, 2015 | Amber Dunlap
This week’s Roundtable Discussion was inspired by the MLB All-Star game a couple of weeks back. We asked the PorchDrinking team: If you had to create an all-star lineup of five beers from YOUR city what would they be? We have lineups from Chicago, Denver, Boulder, Dallas, SLC, Atlanta, St. Louis and more. Add your picks in the comments below. Read More
Roundtable Discussion | Fire Back at BudJuly 15, 2015 | Kate Stark
We try to keep things pretty positive around here. We love the friendship and camaraderie that is a hallmark of the craft brewing community. We want to lift people up for their strengths, applaud their efforts, and rejoice in the great unifier that is beer. That is, until things get hostile. Read More
Roundtable Discussion | Perfect Clue-Styled Beer ScenarioJuly 8, 2015 | Kathleen Morton
“It was Reverend/Mr. Green, in the Hall, with the revolver.” Or it might be “Colonel Mustard, in the Conservatory, with the spanner/wrench.”
We asked our staff to use this method to choose the
Roundtable Discussion | Patriotic BeersJuly 1, 2015 | Amber Dunlap
It’s no surprise that this week’s roundtable discussion centers around the upcoming 4th of July holiday. We asked the team what beer and/or beer design best represents the good ol’ U S of A? The best part? There’s plenty of time to stock the cooler full with these recommended patriotic beers before the big day.
Roundtable Discussion | Beer SongsJune 11, 2015 | Kathleen Morton
No matter if you’re cracking open a cold one during the summer day or sitting by the campfire at night, you might need a few song options to keep you buzzed. Here are a few of our favorite (and sometimes, least favorite) songs about drinking beer.
Roundtable Discussion | Camping BeersJune 3, 2015 | Kathleen Morton
So summer doesn’t officially start until June 21, but for us happy campers, we just need warm weather to pitch a tent and drink a few beers. If you’re planning your own backcountry or car camping trip, you’ll want to read our list for the best camping beers. Read More
Roundtable Discussion | Beer FestivalsMay 20, 2015 | Kate Stark
As summer draws near that usually signals the beginning of festival season for the beer industry. Some beer fests are amazing, others can be a bit of a reach, and some are just unnecessary. What have been your favorite beer festivals to attend, and if you could create your own beer festival what would be the theme? Read More
Roundtable Discussion | What beer are you?May 13, 2015 | Amber Dunlap
We talk about beer a lot on this site but what if you were one, a beer that is. What beer would you be? The PorchDrinking team had no trouble selecting their beer counterpart. I think you’ll really get to know the team on a whole new level after this discussion. You can finally put a beer to a face…or something like that…Enjoy!
Roundtable Discussion | Best Taco SpotMay 6, 2015 | Amber Dunlap

Roundtable Discussion | May the 4th Be With YouApril 29, 2015 | Lindsay Krumel
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!
Roundtable Discussion | Our Adorable PetsApril 23, 2015 | Kate Stark
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.
Roundtable Discussion | April Beer MonthApril 15, 2015 | Kathleen Morton
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.
Roundtable Discussion | Holiday So Nice, Celebrate it Twice?April 8, 2015 | Amber Dunlap
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.
Roundtable Discussion | Good 80s TrendsMarch 25, 2015 | Kate Stark
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.
Roundtable Discussion | Favorite St. Paddy’s Day MemoriesMarch 18, 2015 | Kathleen Morton 2
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.
Roundtable Discussion | Favorite Spring SeasonalsMarch 11, 2015 | Amber Dunlap
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?
Roundtable Discussion | Favorite Thing to Make Using BeerMarch 4, 2015 | Lindsay Krumel
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.
Roundtable Discussion | Best Shows to Binge WatchFebruary 25, 2015 | Kate Stark
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?
Roundtable Discussion | AB InBev Worst Case ScenariosFebruary 18, 2015 | Kathleen Morton
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.
Roundtable Discussion | Epic Marriage ProposalsFebruary 11, 2015 | Amber Dunlap
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.
