If you haven’t heard the Boys Are From Märzen podcast hosted by me, Kindsey Bernhard, is joining the PorchCast Podcast Network!
I started the Boys Are From Märzen podcast in July because, like many of you, I got very bored during the quarantine. And due to COVID-19, I had some more free time on my hands to start a podcast that highlighted some of the talented women who work in the craft beer industry in all shapes and forms. I just recorded my 20th episode (stay tuned) and I have interviewed brewery owners, brewers, social media influencers, journalists, educators, etc.
In episode 73 of the PorchCast, we got the entire PorchCast gang back together to take a look back at some of the biggest craft beer news from 2020 as well as some of our favorite breweries, beers, and trends from the last year.
In episode 72 of the PorchCast, we spoke with Jonathan Shikes, freelance beer journalist, former Managing Editor of The Westword, and author of Denver Beer: A History of Mile High Brewing
We spoke with Jonathan about how he got into writing about beer, what went into the research for creating this comprehensive history of Denver’s craft beer scene, some of his favorite beers and breweries currently in Denver, some of the events he misses most since the onset of the pandemic, setting up an Etsy page, and so much more.
In episode 71 of the PorchCast, we spoke with Alex Kidd, founder of the popular entertainment and satire brand Don’t Drink Beer, who this summer also raised an astounding $67,000 via 14,000 participants in fundraisers for the family of Breonna Taylor and Elijah McClain.
We caught up with Alex to talk about how he started Don’t Drink Beer, what comedy looks like in the beer world today, how his podcast Malt Couture has pivoted during the pandemic and, of course, we dove into his apparent obsession with Barleywines and otters.
On International Podcast Day, we’re honoring one podcast that prioritizes not only “indie” beer, but also bringing craft beer lovers together in a way that is unique to other podcasts. The Perfect Pour isn’t your standard beer education podcast but instead fosters a community unlike any other, bridging craft beer lovers across states and even countries. The Perfect Pour calls itself the “beer geek fun podcast,” and to be fair there are quite a few shenanigans, but you will be sucked into the Perfect Pour world within a few episodes, establishing yourself as the newest show rep and organizing a “Get It.” Take a quick tour with Mikey, Matt, and Nick down Memory Lane. These beers below either have contributed to the general ethos of the podcast or have been recommended by a listener as “the beer that sums up The Perfect Pour.” Enjoy!

As someone who was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Oktoberfest is not just a type of beer or a festival in Germany; it’s a state of mind. With the cancellation of many Oktoberfest events, people have to be creative in their celebration. Personally, give me a day where I can justifiably drink beer and eat sausage all day and I’ll be a happy camper.
