Bout that time again folks, the season of spook is upon us! Ghosts are waiting to be busted and basic witches near and far are happily sipping on their nonfat pumpkin spice lattes in between capturing the ultimate fall foliage selfies.
Once a month, the Vinyl and Beers crew will pose a musical question and, with all the inspiration a couple of good beers can provide, share our thoughts via pairings of records and brews. This month’s question comes from esteemed music-lover and director Quentin Tarantino: In a scene deleted from Pulp Fiction, Uma Thurman’s Mia posits that everyone can be classified as a Beatles person or an Elvis person, and all other musicians can be divided into one of those two categories. In theory, Beatles folks tend to appreciate the integrity of the musical creation process, while Elvis admirers are wooed by showmanship and the characters that create the music.
Are you ready? It’s coming… the 2016 Great American Beer Festival and it kicks off on Thursday, October 6th! I admit, this Beer Drinking Playlist crosses all genres and contains general goofiness in …
This place really is an adult playground. Looking to the left, we see Bill & Ted and to the right, we’re greeted by Wayne & Garth (all tanks have been given names of pop culture icons.) In the middle of it all, Jack is making beer on a home brew setup and today is in charge of the tunes at Proper Brewing Co. In between watching the boil, he takes a moment to set the next song.
As I approached mile 3,000 on my seemingly never ending cross-county road trip, the novelty of bumping to an infinite playlist of my favorite sounds had sadly worn off. Just as mesmerizing mountains gave way to an endless expanse of less than captivating flatness, my treasured playlist suddenly found itself back to ‘Track 1’ … for about the 20th time. I quickly realized two things: one, that I had zero cell service and two, that I had made a huge rookie mistake in thinking that I could solely rely on a single playlist, no matter how fantastic, to get me across the country.
Somehow we are already talking about the “unofficial” end of summer, Labor Day weekend. Summers end always seems to come too soon and is very bittersweet so make the most of your last holiday weekend of summer hiking, biking, grilling, camping, swimming, or porch drinking with this Labor Day weekend playlist! Soak every last bit of summer in and get your groove on but also remember that you still have two more weeks of “official” summer before fall sneaks it chilly way onto your calendar!
Have you noticed the change in the weather? Mornings that are a little cooler than normal, and evenings that are a bit more brisk than we’re used to? Whether we like it or not, summer is slowly coming to a close. For this week’s PorchDrinking Playlist we’ve got 10 songs to help ease the transition for you.
Got plans this weekend? The Rocky Mountain Folks Festival might be the only festival in the world where you can float down a river while watching musicians perform on the main stage. It’s a small town festival with big charm and tickets are still available.
Can you believe it? We blink our eyes and the year is running toward 2017! Football season is right around the corner, yet it seems just days ago we had friends over to watch the Denver Broncos hand the Carolina Panthers a loss in Super Bowl 50 at Levi’s Stadium. Pre-season starts this week and the regular season gives us a revenge match between last year’s champion contenders on September 8th. Admittedly a diehard Philadelphia Eagles fan – each new year brings a treasure trove of emotions. Unlike Cleveland Browns fans, we tend to believe we are winners all the time and no matter what the odds makers say, we have a chance!
This playlist is dedicated to the sun-kissed skin, beer-filled bellies and music-fed ears of summer! With the help of countless barbecues and beach brews, we’ve had the opportunity to bulk up our seasonal stockpile of sounds. We’ve pulled together a collection of musical discoveries featuring tracks that have caught our ears while soaking up the best of all things under the sun.
Endless summers have earned their nicknames for a reason; with the persistence of light come late nights and early mornings. Despite the vibrancy of this eternal sunshine, I personally live for the hours when the sun makes way for the moon. There’s something enthralling about sinking back into the shadows to embrace the darker shades of sound. Go ahead and tuck yourself into the night as you explore this playlist, its artists, and their uniquely haunting arrays of work.
It’s officially summer and the sun’s out, temps are rising, and we’re looking forward to endless patio beers, creekside camping spots, and long mountain drives. In this week’s PorchDrinking playlist, we’ve got 15 songs for the summer sun — for yard games in the park, hammocking in the shade, and those long drives to the mountains or lake for the best weekend adventures.
For the fourth year, Goose Island has teamed up with a band performing at the Pitchfork Music Festival to create a unique beer that represents the bands taste in beers. This year the brewery collaborated with Chicago’s own Twin Peaks to create Natural Villain, a garage/pilsner-style lager.
It’s always interesting to group a bunch of similar items together and see how they compare — like getting your friends together for a delicious IPA bottle share, or sitting around discussing who the greatest quarterback of all time is. Time to revisit one of our first ever PorchDrinking playlists. We put together a playlist full of artists who were all born in 1986 and it was interesting to hear the common themes in the music. Let’s go back in time again… to 1987!
Funky tunes and flagship brews took over Upslope’s Flatiron brewing location this past Saturday! After hosting parties and specialty tappings for the five straight days, one of Boulder’s breweries capped …
This week we’re gonna keep it simple. Check out our playlist below for the 10 songs (and artists and albums) you need to be listening to. Take a listen, and let us know your favorites!
Get lost in the woods; you never know where you might find yourself. Here’s a playlist dedicated to those moments in time where you simply need to disappear and let the …
We’ve all had to deal with pains of good ol’ traffic at one point or another. Whether your facing down a daily commute, or accidentally take the wrong exit only to inch your way through a bumper to bumper gridlock, we’ve created a playlist that will make your wait a bit more bearable. While you may not have control over the speed at which you lurch to your destination, you do have control over the amount of groove you pack into that time.
If you could leave right now on a spontaneous road trip, where would you go? Last week I set out with one of my close friends on a road trip across Colorado, Utah, and Arizona. We started from Denver and rolled into Tucson four days later.
