We’re now in the final throws of October. It’s getting dark earlier, and our beers are getting darker, too. All those dark, roasty malts will keep us warm in the cold months to come. Say goodbye to your lawnmower beer, and embrace the arrival of fall. Prepare to discover What We’re Drinking.
Beer announcements blowing up like A-bombs this week. Some are returning seasonals, others are new twists on old friends, and some are all-new creations. Put those in the boil with event announcements and ferment over ample shenanigans. This is The Weekly Buzz, brewed just for you!
Besides GABF, it was kind of a slow week on social media, but fear not, fair reader! I’ve managed to scrounge up a few humdingers for your enjoyment. If you like beer events, ghosts, or janitorial work, you have come to the right place. Turn up the polka music, pour yourself a beer, and dive into The Weekly Buzz!
The Great American Beer Festival was in Denver this weekend, and there were more tweets than you could shake a stick at. Without any further ado, let’s dive right into the beer, fun, and shenanigans. Welcome to The Weekly …
After looking through this week’s submissions, I’ve only been able to draw two definitive conclusions. First, Southeast Region Editor Johnathan Pylant drank a lot of beer this week, and, second, he’s not great at the #BovaPose. I mean he’s really not great at it, but that’s enough about his shortcomings. The rest of the staff delivered some real gems. Pull on your 1930s-style bathing suit, don your swim cap, and get ready to dive in like Scrooge McDuck. This is What We’re Drinking.
Autumn is in full swing. Oktoberfest’s and block parties are popping up nation-wide, and the hop harvest continues. Events for GABF are starting to roll in, and, of course, we found a little beer-related nonsense for you, too. All this …
This week was chock full of event announcements, new beer releases, and breweries giving back to the community. Hmm, am I forgetting anything? Only the grand opening of Stone’s location in Berlin, and a legendary collaboration brew that took place there! Ladies, gentlemen and children of all ages (but preferably over 21), this is The Weekly Buzz!
Chicago’s Goose Island Migration Week comes to Logan Square September 26th thru September 30th with a full week of craft beer inspired events at a variety of locations.
The brewery has been doing Migration Weeks throughout 2016 and have visited cities not only around the United States but all over the world. Goose Island Migration Weeks have been to the UK, China, South Korea and still have plans to go to Guadalajara later this year. Migration Week has been in Chicago once before, when in June the brewery was in Lincoln Park for a week.
Belgian-style beers run the gamut from light, bubbly pale ales to hearty, dark quadrupels. They can be bright, vivid, and effervescent, and they can be strong, savory, and bold. However they appear, they tend to make an impression. So much so that even the most adamant of non-beer drinkers (I’m looking at you, winos) can be won over with the right combination of fruit, spice, and alcohol.
The geese have landed in Denver and the PorchDrinkers are rejoicing. Why? Migration Week a.k.a. the week of Goose Island Beer Co. festivities in Denver has just begun and we couldn’t be any happier. Is it because we got to try a 2009 Bourbon County Stout? I’d say that’s a large part of it. But it’s not only the beer we are excited about, Goose Island has also come to town with a giant plinko game, photo booth, cooking classes, and more. Is it a coincidence that they happened to fly in during the week of PorchDrinking.com’s anniversary? I think not! The beer gods are blessing us Porch Drinkers with some great creations such as Sofie, Matilda, and Coffee BCS – and we will continue to worship them in the form of drinking all the beer that comes our way. Cheers to Goose Island and cheers to Migration Week!
