Arches Brewing | Black Gold Schwarzbier

October 21, 2021 |

Isn’t this the absolute best time of the year? Trees are starting to lose leaves and become shaded in every color. Football, the ever-approaching holidays and cool breezes are ahead in the next few weeks. Now is the chance to enjoy it all.

But, the best part of autumn is easily the beer releases. Yes, there will be an abundance of pantry-ravished Pastry Stouts, and for good reason. However, those are not the only beers to hoard or enjoy this time of year.

Fantasy Football Recap | Week 5

October 15, 2021 |

Quarterbacks are often thought to be the most important position on the field in the NFL. Look at draft classes, MVP Awards and contracts. Love it or hate it, that’s typically how “real football” works. Fantasy Football usually plays by those rules but not always. In Week 5 of the 2021 NFL season, though, it was a Quarterback’s world. Justin Herbert, Josh Allen (with a hurdle) and Lamar Jackson absolutely painted the sky with fireworks throughout the weekend and into Monday Night Football. There were some outliers like Mark Andrews, Austin Ekeler and Johnathan Taylor, sure, but the majority of the weekend what the hell’s are due to stellar quarterback play. Anyway, they get enough praise as is. Let’s get to it.

Fantasy Football Recap | Week 4

October 9, 2021 |

We’re back! Week 4 of the NFL season is in the books, but oh wow was there some drama that came along with it. Thursday Night Football showed the world that Joe Burrow really is That Dude for the Bengals as he led a game-winning drive to send the Jaguars to 0-4. Sunday featured some late game antics in several matchups. The Atlanta Falcons did what they do best in blowing leads, while Saquon Barkley looked like himself before the injury against Kamara and the New Orleans Saints. Mahomes casually threw 5 TDs, and Kyler Murray and the Cardinals almost doubled up the Los Angeles Rams. Of course, there was a homecoming, too, as Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Bucs marched into Foxborough and got a W against Belichick. Read More

PorchDrinking Fantasy Football Recap | Week 3

October 1, 2021 |

Week 3 felt like it was one of the more “expected” weeks of the season. You never really know what’s going to happen in Fantasy Football, but for the most part, a lot of stars with tough matchups were kept in check, looking at you Scary Terry and, well, all of the Chicago Bears. A few fantasy managers kept their dream of perfection alive, while others, (a.k.a. me) are still searching for a W on the year. Them’s the breaks, I guess. Oh, and one more thing before we move on. Justin. Tucker. How in the hell did he do that?! An NFL Record 66-Yard Game-Winning Field Goal. Seriously. WHAT? Read More

4 Noses Brewing Co. | Pump Action Imperial Pumpkin Ale

September 21, 2021 |

Somebody call Green Day and tell them that September is ending. Autumn is officially here, so it’s time to don your sweater, ditch the Pilsners and prepare your palate for Stout season. And, as nature changes her hues, perhaps the most fittingly transitionary beer is the humble pumpkin beer: smooth, sweet, spiced and full of that guilty pleasure that we crave this time of year.

Ultimate 6er | It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia

August 18, 2021 |

Can you believe that the longest running live-action comedy series in TV history is about five friends that own a dive bar, Paddy’s Pub in southern Philadelphia? We know what you’re thinking, “how could this show possibly be that good if it sounds boring?” Don’t be fooled by the premise of the show, these are not your average ordinary people you’d come across any day. Narcissistic, self-absorbed, and unhinged are just a few of the words to describe “The Gang,” which is made up of none other than Dennis, Charlie, Mac, Dee and Frank Reynolds.

If you haven’t watched It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia yet you are missing out on one of the greatest TV shows of all time! With all the crazy antics The Gang get themselves into, it’s only right that you enjoy the show while drinking delicious beers… and maybe eating rum ham? There are over 150 episodes of It’s Always Sunny and I’m here to pair 6 of the best episodes with 6 of the tastiest beers.
