August 26, 2015 |

As summer comes to a close and we make our way into fall, one thing becomes more imminent than anything: FOOTBALL. And what better way to celebrate the advent of a new season than with some brews?

So, in anticipation of another grueling season, I present to you the 6 Stages of Cleveland Browns Fandom, as described by beer.

Red Hare Brewing Co. | Whabbit Wheat

August 6, 2015 |

ABV: 5.6%

Georgia summers are long and hot. You’d swear they start in mid-April. So thank God the good folks at Marietta’s Red Hare Brewing Company thought to brew Whabbit Wheat, a summer beer with a delightful twist of fresh fruit and Saaz hops. It’s a beer that makes the drenching humid days a little bit more tolerable.

Ultimate 6er | Texas Beers to Beat the Summer Heat

July 15, 2015 |

With summer upon us, days in Texas can be brutal – rising temperatures heading into the triple digits call for ways to stay hydrated. What could be more appropriate than a cold brew on a hot day? Those perfectly suited for the Texas scorching heat that can equally be enjoyed all day or even poolside. So put aside the lemonade and water, here is the Ultimate 6er of Texas beers to beat the summer heat. Read More

Summer of Growth for Georgia’s Wild Heaven Craft Beers

July 13, 2015 |

In a warehouse about a mile east of the hubbub of historic downtown Decatur, Georgia in the Avondale district, a line snakes out of the front door of Wild Heaven Craft Beers on a steamy July Saturday.

The 95 degree heat index doesn’t seem to bother anyone. Neither does the occasional screech of the Marta light rail or the chug of the railroad nearby. You’re more likely to hear the ‘thump-thump’ of bags hitting the boards from the game of cornhole in the beer garden. Read More

Thomas Creek Brewery | Honeysuckle Saison

June 30, 2015 |

Thomas Creek Brewery of Greenville, SC has added a few new brews to their portfolio. These brews are so new that they are not yet on their official website. Among the newbies is Thomas Creek’s first and only Saison, Honeysuckle Saison ale.

May 6, 2015 |

ABV: 6.0% | IBU: 38

If you have been as busy as I have been, going from meeting to meeting, email after email, and working past 5 most days, you need fuel. Now most of us have probably exasperated our coffee … Read More

Lazy Magnolia Brewery | Sweet Potato Cream Stout (Jefferson Stout)

February 20, 2015 |

ABV: 4.65% ABV | IBU: 22

Before Kentucky is scheduled to be buried under a foot of snow this week, I watched perplexed as Lexatonians prepare for Snowmageddon by stocking up on a month’s worth of Digiornos and Doritos while congesting every aisle of the grocery store. Rather than loading my cart with six gallons of milk and the last of the bread that just might last me 48 hours, I look for a comforting beverage with a flavor that resonates with the coziness of this bitter season. My eyes fell upon the words “Sweet Potato Cream Stout” and I knew I could ride out any storm with this belly-warming brew.

Wynkoop Brewing Company | Barrel Aged Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout

January 1, 2015 |

Who’s got the biggest… cans of them all? In walks Wynkoop’s Barrel Aged Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout in 19.2oz cans. Sure their can itself may not be the” largest” format craft can, but its “contents” may just be the most coveted this side of the Vanilla Rye-filled Mississippi.

Smooth, creamy mouthfeel with notes of wood and vanilla and… wait, what am I drinking? What is a Rocky Mountain Oyster? Hold on, what? Calf fries, swinging steaks, prairie oysters, cowboy caviar, criadillas in Mexico, Montana tendergroins, dusted nuts, bull fries or swinging beef? You’re kidding, right?!

ABV: 7.8%
IBU: 30-70
SRM: 30-40
BPB (balls per barrel): 3

Schlafly | Pumpkin Ale

October 10, 2014 |

ABV: 8.0% | IBU: 16

Pumpkin beers have been a contentious issue on PorchDrinking over the past six weeks. Opinions certainly differ on the propriety of drinking pumpkin beer in August, but since we’re well into October, I hope I’m not in the minority in calling pumpkin beer season officially open for business. They’re not for everyone, these pumpkin beers. They tend to offend the Reinheitsgebot in nearly every way possible. Not only do they have adulterating spices such as nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves, but they’re usually chock full of “pumpkin”. Read More

Red Hare Brewing | Red Hare Chase 5k/15k

September 30, 2014 |

Red Hare Brewing‘s first annual Red Hare Chase 5k/15k in Marietta, Georgia, gave me the perfect excuse to combine two things I love: beer and running (a duo best enjoyed in the correct order — painful when not).

Boulevard Brewing Co. | Hibiscus Gose

September 23, 2014 |

ABV: 4.2% | IBU: 11

I have a secret. I can’t stop buying Boulevard’s Hibiscus Gose. It’s been in Atlanta just a few days, and my hands keep grabbing the cardboard box the sixer comes in. I’ve bought three so far. I can’t control it. Hey, Boulevard, why don’t I just direct deposit part of my paycheck to you?

Kentucky Derby Beers

May 1, 2014 | 3

The Kentucky Derby may be all about mint juleps and bourbon, but there’s room for beer as well. In honor of this weekend’s run for the roses we wanted to highlight a few Kentucky Derby Beers worthy of consumption during race day. These beers are a showcase of the tremendous growth of craft beer in my home state of Kentucky. If you’re in the Bluegrass state for the Derby, be sure to drop in to one of these talented breweries or pick some up from your local liquor store. Read More

Bison Brewing | Organic Chocolate Stout

March 26, 2014 |

Bison Brewing’s Organic Chocolate is one of my favorite stouts, and has been for the last few years or so. It is rich in flavor without being heavy in the body, and low enough in alcohol to be sessionable. This is definitely NOT a sweet stout. (If sweet is your thing, check out Samuel Smith’s Organic Chocolate stout.) Brewed with Peruvian cocoa and roasted barley, this beer boasts big coffee and dark chocolate flavors.

Odell Brewing | Lugene Chocolate Milk Stout

February 25, 2014 | 2

ABV: 8.5%

I am not sure which is more exciting, Odell Brewing Company‘s chocolate milk stout known as Lugene or the story behind its name. It is no secret that Fort Collins produces a lot of spent grain in order to make beer, and it all has to go somewhere. For the past decade, the spent grain from Odell’s has been picked up by local farmer, Lugene Sas to feed his dairy cows at Taft Hill Dairy. That’s an entire two truckloads a day! The staff at Odell even made a fun photo editorial of the process to show how it is used.  Read More

Shipyard Brewing Co. | Pumpkinhead

October 29, 2013 | 2

It seems like everyone has gotten in on the pumpkin game these days. Once fall hits, pumpkin fever infects us all and we just want more of it! Luckily, I think I have found the cure to the sickness. Well, I shouldn’t say cure, because once it’s gone, it leaves you craving for this orange and blue aluminum can to come charging back for more. Read More

Founders Brewing | Breakfast Stout

August 14, 2013 |

ABV: 8.3% | IBU: 60

I used to think this brew was best poured into a wide base tulip on a cool summer’s evening. I have changed my mind. This breakfast beer is best served with breakfast. It’s a big beer but not too big. Grab a mug, pour a Founders Brewing Breakfast Stout and grab a slice of coffee cake. Take a seat on your front/back porch with the morning paper. It’s time for breakfast the way it was intended.
