Yards Brewing Company | Brawler

July 6, 2018 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

A purveyor of fine ales since 1994, Yards as a knack for extraordinarily balanced beers ranging from a classic IPA, to an amber ale brewed with spruce tips. One example is Brawler, “the pugilist-style ale.” The 4.2% ABV English dark mild is brewed with roasted barley, Amber and Crystal Malts, a pesky English specialty yeast and rocks a smooth 12 IBUs.

June 21, 2018 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

Last year Surly Brewing made it clear — Chicago was a market they wanted to have a stronger footprint in. They switched distributors in January from Windy City Distributing to Lakeshore Beverage, AB-InBev’s High End distributor, and have subsequently made an immediate impact on the Windy City’s craft beer scene.

June 20, 2018 | Avg. Reading Time: 3 min

If you were to ask someone in the Sacramento area if they’ve had a chance to visit a new brewery lately, you would most likely get the response, “Which one?” The rampant growth in U.S. breweries has not been lost on Sacramento. At last count, there are more than 70 breweries, tasting rooms and/or brewpubs open or in planning in the greater Sacramento area. You’ll get thirsty just trying to keep track. Read More

Book Review | Barrel-Aged Stout & Selling Out

June 11, 2018 | Avg. Reading Time: 3 min

When Goose Island was sold to Anheuser-Busch in 2011, the craft beer industry was a sliver of what it is today. Just a handful of breweries were operating in the city and the idea of a hazy beer would have been blasphemous.

BAD SONS Beer Company | Conn Ale

June 7, 2018 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

A microbrewery in Derby, Connecticut is catching some attention due to its beer that is straight bad. Not bad in a literal way, but bad in the “that’s what kids are saying” these days way. BAD SONS Beer Co. offers an abundance of beers, but I want to talk about a specific one that was so good, I checked it in with my baggage on my flight home. If you are looking for a pale ale to satisfy the long drinking days ahead this summer, look no further — Conn Ale is here.

Inside the Tank | Empirical Brewery

June 5, 2018 | Avg. Reading Time: 13 min

A lot has changed over the past year for Empirical Brewery. They moved to self-distribution, the brewpub, just a stones throw away from the taproom, is in full-swing, and they are moving from bottles to cans. There’s a lot of great beer coming out of the small taproom in Andersonville so we went out there and spoke with CEO Bill Hurley and Head Brewer/Taproom Manager Jacob Huston about Empirical, craft beer in Chicago and the industry in general.

What We’re Drinking | May 25th, 2018

The disappointment of finishing a unique beer that was so good is something I am sure we have all run into. We stare into the empty glass oh so sadly/dramatically. The non-stop downpour in the Southeast adds a more dramatic effect in my case. All that is left is the lacing. Now we have to find one that was just as good or better?! PorchDrinkers know this struggle and have got you covered in all regions. Check out What We’re Drinking this week to fill that glass up with something great again. Read More

Crow Hop Brewing | Rado’s Red Sweet Cherry Sour

May 25, 2018 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

The Colorado brewery scene is one with its ups and downs, ebbs and flows. Some breweries see their star shine brightly, then quickly fizzle out and shut their doors nearly as soon as they opened. Others, like Crow Hop Brewing in Loveland, CO, find increased success year after year and eventually need to move locations to accommodate the greater fanfare.
