January was dragging by slowly, but it is finally gone. Hopefully, Punxsutawney Phil will have avoided his shadow by now and delivered unto us an early spring. If he decrees that there will be six more weeks of winter, at least we can take solace in the fact the there are still PorchDrinkers out there. They will continue to seek out great beer and tell us all about it. So raise a glass to our intrepid team and enjoy What We’re Drinking!
I’m getting ready to go on vacation! My destination may not be a world-renowned beer town like Portland or Denver, but I’m sure I will find a way to enjoy some delicious craft brews. For those of you who are forced to stay home and endure your normal slog, I present you with a week’s worth of beer news and shenanigans. You can read The Weekly Buzz while you pretend to do your TPS reports. I, on the other hand, will be in Myrtle Beach drinking beer and pretending that I like the beach.
New beers, new locations and new ways to use hops. Also, drink the most popular beer from the country you’re cheering for in the World Cup. You can find all this and more in this edition of the Weekly Growler Fill.

One day, every Spring a vast percentage of my social networking feeds suddenly revolve around one topic: Dark Lord Day. Some will actually score tickets. Many will not. Either way, this “golden” ticket release day serves as a reminder to a couple very important things for me. 1. Spring is here. (DLD is always held the last Saturday of April.) 2. Beer Festival season is officially beginning. Just three short weeks after DLD, Chicago Craft Beer Week will begin… and it starts. 3. There will inevitably be a trip planned in the near future where Chicago pals will bicycle along the Lakefront path to the Three Floyds Brewery and enjoy the day. And lastly, 4. I remember why I love Three Floyds and that is, while they serve as a great beer year round, the majority of their portfolio is made up of great summer delights.
