No matter what your views on climate change are, there is no denying that spring is arriving ridiculously early in many parts of the country. Perhaps it was brought on by the unseasonable warm weather, but the PorchDrinkers enjoyed quite a few IPAs this week. That wasn’t all we drank, though! There were sours for fun, flights for variety and a little something special at the end. If you spent your whole week at work (or laid up with back pain like me), prepare to live vicariously through us. This is What We’re Drinking.

Throughout the year, Columbus Brewing Company drops delicious bombs on unsuspecting palates. Some are malt bombs, like Sohio Stout, while some are hop bombs, like Thunderlips, Dalton and Bodhi. While the legend of Bodhi is growing after winning a bronze medal at GABF and an exquisite writeup on this very site, Bodhi has a gold medal winning big brother in Columbus Brewing Company’s Creeper.
CBC IPA 6.5% ABV
As much as I love trying and exploring all the craft beer that is out there, I know no matter what there will be one beer that stands above the rest. One that will always have a special place for in my heart, and in my refrigerator. To me, that is Columbus Brewing Company IPA. I always feel a nice sense of pride for Columbus and all the great local breweries, and CBC is among the best, especially when it comes to making a great IPA. The brewery itself is located in the historical brewery district in downtown Columbus, and you can find their beers on tap almost anywhere in this fine city.
Dark beers are the best part about winter. Gone are the light beers there to quench our thirst in the summer. Winter is about enjoying a nice pint with friends that makes you forget about how the weather outside is frightful.
