Mikerphone Brewing, Toppling Goliath Talk Beer Releases

September 19, 2017 | 1 Avg. Reading Time: 6 min

Beer releases are a tricky thing. As more and more people take an interest in craft beer, the next release of a hazy NE-IPA, mix culture barrel-aged wild/sour, or big barrel-aged stout are getting more hyped, more complex and trickier for the brewery to manage. There is no such thing as a perfect release, however, breweries today are doing their best to figure out how to get their beer out to their customers.

Whether it’s a smaller/newer brewery like Mikerphone Brewing, or a more established one like Toppling Goliath, the logistics behind releasing highly sought-after beer are nothing simple.

Beerstagram | September 7 – September 14

September 15, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 1 min

Hello Beerstagram fans! How has your week been? Somehow it is already the weekend again. It’s pretty crazy that we are already talking plans for Great American Beer Festival over here at PorchDrinking.com’s Denver headquarters and that this will be the last weekend of summer. Fall is coming and so are those malty beers. But while it is still summer officially, at least for one more week, let’s keep on soaking in those lighter styles and outdoor beer shots, OK? Also, enjoy those Oktoberfest activities many of you have plans for this weekend, too. Cheers! See you back here again next week.

Cellar West Artisan Ales | Sapience

September 15, 2017 | 2 Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

I know, I know. We’re post-Labor Day, school has started and the pumpkin ales and warm toasty porters are hitting the shelves. But as I sit here in my kitchen with the windows thrown wide, trying to tempt the air to somehow drop below 80, I just can’t bring myself to go there yet.

Funky Buddha Brewery | Fire in the Hole

September 13, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

While preparing for Hurricane Irma, I opened the fridge to find this interesting treat by Funky Buddha Brewery and realized it was the perfect beer for a time like this. An explosive beer, this rotates yearly in the Little Buddha Small Batch series. Fire in the Hole takes on a whole new level of spice. This red ale brewed with raspberries and habanero is too intriguing of a combination to pass up. Fire in the Hole was a drinkable distraction from all of the hurricane preparation. It is available throughout Florida in bottles and on tap for a limited time.

Ask the Breweries: What to Expect This Fall

September 12, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 3 min

As the leaves change from light and crisp to dark and brown, so does the beer. Fall is my favorite time of year for many reasons, but it’s the amazing variety of lagers, Oktoberfests and stouts that really makes this season shine. As the temps change, so do the opinions of craft beer nation, which means that craft breweries around the U.S. have to be cognizant of these changes and flexible enough to adapt to the every-fragmenting taste preferences of their patrons. What’s new and hot for 2017? Is this finally the swan song of the oft-maligned pumpkin beer? To get answers to these questions – plus many more – we asked the breweries. Here is what they said:

Ultimate 6er | Six College-Licensed Beers Perfect For Watching College Football

August 31, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

College football season is here. If you’re like me, that means that you’ll be spending most Saturdays until the New Year watching your Alma Mater (U Rah Rah Wisconsin) elevate your hopes and mercilessly dash your dreams on a weekly basis. This also means you might be attending a tailgate or hitting your favorite college bar, meaning beer will be a high priority on your list. For me, that means a heavy portion of New Glarus and whatever other craft options are available. Some lucky football fans, however, get to drink college-licensed beer brewed by a local craft brewery. Here are six college-licensed beers for which any college football fan base could be proud.

Squatters Craft Beers | Outer Darkness

August 29, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

It’s time to kick it old school. The craft beer boom of the last several years has everyone chasing the newest, most hoppy, most sour, fruitiest, haziest, or rarest barrel aged beast out there. We admit, we’ve caught ourselves in the Untappd beer culture looking to add precious notches to our belts. We have saved that special beer for that 500th, 1000th and so on badge. Experiencing new beer is always going to be a blast. But there is something to be said about going back to the beginning and rediscovering great beer from your past.

Event Recap | Half Acre Beer Co. Big North II

August 24, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 4 min

On a weekend usually dedicated to the high-flying Air and Water Show, Half Acre Beer Co. delivered its own high-octane experience at their second annual The Big North beer festival. The Big North II was a celebration of Half Acre’s 10 years of business; and it also was a moment to open its Balmoral facility to the public for the very first time, and it did not disappoint.
