Ultimate 6er – Winter Warmers

January 16, 2013 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

The mercury isn’t just low in the chamber, it has actually frozen. It’s the middle of January, and it is bitter, bitter cold outside. So how in the world will you make it through the winter if you can’t hang out on your porch? By staying inside where there is heat and drinking some winter warmers, of course!

Ultimate 6er | Beermosa (Beer + Orange Juice = Awesome)

January 9, 2013 | 3 Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

If you’re one of the lucky ones who are still partying, you may need need some fuel to start off your morning. I find that the perfect breakfast brew to help transition your morning to awesomeness is the beermosa. A combination of beer and orange juice, with a ratio of somewhere from ⅔ beer with ⅓ OJ to ¾ beer with ¼ OJ. Read More

The Ultimate 6er – The League

December 19, 2012 | Avg. Reading Time: 3 min

The League is a hilarious glimpse at what we fantasy football fanatics endure every season. They’ve spoiled us with two episodes each of the last 2 weeks, so I thought I’d return the favor with an Ultimate 6er. Pick one of these bad boys up and tune in to FX this Thursday! Read More

If you’re drinking during breakfast, it’s probably either because you had a bad night or a great morning. Or maybe you just ran out of OJ. But whatever the reason may be, here are the six beers you need to start off your day.

November 14, 2012 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

The latest, and as always, ridiculous It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia continues to a 12th season. And what better show to sit down with an Ultimate 6er for? Well, maybe not the entire six pack since some of these are strictly for the type of… gentlemen… that the series showcases. So here’s to everyone’s favorite show about everyone’s favorite alcoholics.

Ultimate 6er for The Election Night Party

November 6, 2012 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

Election season is over on Tuesday so celebrate the end of political ads with an Ultimate 6er. According to some recent research, certain beers are correlated with political persuasion and also the likelihood of voting. Interestingly, people who drink “any microbrew,” lean to the left and are very likely to vote. So I suppose if you’re reading this blog, you’re statistically more likely to be a democrat who votes a lot.

Ultimate 6er: A Pub Crawl from Dublin to Prague

October 31, 2012 | Avg. Reading Time: 4 min

One of my bucket list items was to go to Munich and visit the birthplace of Oktoberfest. This year, I decided to cross it off my bucket list and go for my belated dirty thirty. What started out as a trip to Munich, turned into a three week long pub crawl full of awesome beer and liquor.

After visiting six countries in Europe, I return to you with my take on some of the best beers I’ve had in Dublin, Ireland; Edinburgh, Scotland; Bruges, Belgium; Amsterdam, Netherlands; Munich, Germany; and Prague/Kutna Hora, Czech Republic. Here is my story of my trip throughout Europe, in beer form.

Ultimate 6er: BYOB Party for Hop Lovers

October 24, 2012 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

Beer is good. Hops are awesome. When arriving at a BYOB party or event never be ‘that guy’ (or gal). We all know who they are. Don’t be the person that brings the ‘cheap’  beer, unless it comes in a 30 pack and that’s by design. Here are a few suggestions for what to include in your Ultimate 6er if it’s BYOB.

Ultimate 6er – Boardwalk Empire

October 3, 2012 | Avg. Reading Time: 3 min

I originally wanted to do an ultimate 6er based around the show The Newsroom, but considering the first season ended awhile ago, I decided to go with the next best thing: Boardwalk Empire. I warn you, this 6er is not for the lightweight. Believe me, I know. I have apparently reverted back to freshman year of college when, according to my good friend Stew, I got sloshed on acorn shots. I had to split this 6er between two nights, and I was barely able to take notes at the end of both, so enjoy!

Ultimate 6er | Greatest Action Movie of All Time

September 26, 2012 | Avg. Reading Time: 5 min

One of my favorite conversations, and I think one of the most contested arguments throughout history, is that of the best action movie of all time. I have watched friendships end and new ones begin during the heated exchanges of Running Man versus Commando; Predator or Die Hard; Lion King or Aladdin?

Ultimate 6er: Gettin’ Off Grid

September 19, 2012 | Avg. Reading Time: 4 min

Many of the writers here at PorchDrinking work hard and play harder in the beautiful state of Colorado which we call home. Somewhere in everyone’s soul is a need for exploration and discovery. I enjoy wandering the path less taken and it often takes me way off grid. In this ultimate 6er I exclusively review beers that are canned. Why you ask? Read More

Labor Day Fall Beer Preview Ultimate 6er

September 11, 2012 | Avg. Reading Time: 4 min

In the club of so-called rich countries around the world, workers in the United States put in more hours on the job than any of their peers (source: OECD). The U.S. also consistently ranks as one of the most productive workforces in the world. Although American productivity has recently fallen from historical highs (due to more hours/strain put in at the job during the global economic/financial crisis), there is no question about the effort we put in relative to others around the world. Even more important, then, that we force ourselves to carve a vacation day each September to save each other from our otherwise hectic lives. With a nod to how hard we’ve all worked over the past several years and an eye towards the glorious Fall and its sporting festivities, here’s an Ultimate 6er to get us going with some delicious fall beer this September.

Ultimate 6er Recipes for Cooking with Beer

September 5, 2012 | Avg. Reading Time: 3 min

I grew up watching my dad pour beer over pretty much every single type of meat you can think of before throwing it on the grill. The funny thing about this technique is that it can make even the worst tasting beer into a valuable component of your meal. My dad would only really use cheap beer—Budweiser, Coors, Olympia—so I followed suit. It wasn’t until I left college that I started incorporating better beers into my cooking. It wasn’t just for grilling anymore—stews, chili and other random recipes were enhanced by introducing beer. Read More

Ultimate 6er | Brew Ha-Ha Hops

August 29, 2012 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

As you may have heard from our lovely Kate Stark- Cincinnati’s Brew Ha Ha was a super fun time. Although I successfully ignored the comedians, I did enjoy my fair share of delicious beers. I am happy to say that out of all the beer I tasted, there was only one that I didn’t like. I didn’t like it so much that I’m going to call it out right now. Here it goes. Batch 19. Don’t do it. Unless you love Coors light … Then I guess you’ll love Batch 19, too … “To each his own.”

August 29, 2012 | Avg. Reading Time: 3 min

At Brew Ha-Ha, Betsy and I endeavored to create an Ultimate 6er, however there were 100 beers represented and we didn’t want to leave any of our favorites out. You know what that means? Double-dose of Ultimate 6ers today! I’m taking on my favorites from the malts end of the spectrum, while Betsy sorts out the hops in a little bit.

Ultimate 6er | Fall Preview

August 22, 2012 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

Fall is my favorite season. As a kid, fall was filled with great fun like hay rides, apple orchards, birthday parties and trick-or-treating. Today, I continue to love fall for other reasons—the temperature cooling, leaf colors changing and the emergence of flavors that just aren’t quite appropriate for the summer months.
