Avery Brewing Company | Ale to the Chief

September 26, 2016 |

8.1% ABV | 19.1 degrees Plato (OG)

Avery Brewing Company Ale to the Chief is around for a third term. Don’t worry, there’s no dictatorship here — it’s all about democracy. In that spirit, this isn’t the first time we’ve written about Ale to the Chief. Four years ago, PorchDrinking’s own chief wrote a blurb about Avery’s Ale to the Chief, but there’s a new political and beer climate around, it’s time for a new voice. It’s time for my voice. It’s time for change!

Uinta Brewing Company | Hop Nosh IPA

September 19, 2016 |
ABV: 7.0% | IBU: 82.4

While exploring craft beer early on, we stumbled upon the higher point brews of Utah’s local breweries. We found Uinta Brewing’s Hop Nosh IPA. In the beginning, it was tough to handle bitter, hoppy beers but did our best trying them in limited amounts. Doesn’t almost every craft beer enthusiast go through the transition of ‘hop hater’ to ‘hop head’? There is no vaccine – once you’ve caught the bug, you have it. The beginning pursuit for the most floral, hoppy, bitter beers in an effort to satisfy your tongue’s need for liquid adventure.

Event Recap | Ska Brewing’s 21st Anniversary Party

September 15, 2016 |

When I turned 21, I spent the night drinking way too much blue-ribbon winning beer while slightly intoxicated coeds did their best Carrie Underwood karaoke. It was just about as much of a mess as it sounds. This year, Ska Brewing turned 21, and they decided to celebrate with some gold-medal winning beer and some legendary punk and ska bands. It was just about as amazing as it sounds.

Event Preview | 2016 Beers Made By Walking

September 13, 2016 |

Foraging, it’s true nature is an act of survival, but in recent years this archaic form of collecting goods for nourishment has reinvented and re-defined modern cooking. Just ask world renowned chef René Redzepi, chef and founder of Noma in Copenhagen, whose use of foraged goods has earned the restaurant the distinction of two Michelin stars. Read More

Women in Brewing | Bess Dougherty

September 12, 2016 |

Despite her recent announcement that she’ll be leaving Wynkoop, rest assured, “Bess’s Barrel-Aged Beer Babies” will live on! Back in June, PorchDrinking spoke with brewer Bess Dougherty, recording a PorchCast episode in her “happy place,” Wynkoop Brewing Company’s barrel room. Little did we know a mere 12 hours later Bess and the rest of the Wynkoop family would learn that the brewery would begin scaling back operations to eliminate external distribution AND Bess would soon decide to leave her brewing position at Wynkoop for another opportunity. In light of the latest happenings, we sat down to talk women and beer with her and hear about the latest landmarks in her career path.

Event Preview | Big Beers Belgians and Barleywines Comes to Breckenridge

September 7, 2016 |

The greatest of things do not wither, but rather evolve and iterate in order to continue to thrive. For a moment last winter, it all but seemed that one of the industry’s best and brightest festivals might end up without a home, after it was announced that due to ownership changes, the Vail Cascade would no longer play host to the festival formerly known as Vail Big Beers Belgians and Barleywines. However after 16 years, the premiere showcase of high ABV beers, has found a new home in Summit County with the town of Breckenridge.
