I didn’t have President’s Day off from work, but I hope that all of you had a free day to taste new beers. Being on a diet means that my beer tastings are limited, so I’m counting on all of you to tweet your experiences at me. I’m serious! Living vicariously through PorchDrinking.com’s readers is all I have (until the weekend)! Please?! Anyone?! I’m itching for a beer over here! Anyway… here’s The Weekly Buzz…
Valentine’s Day fell this week, and I have reaffirmed my love for beer. It is the sun to my moon and the surf to my turf. I mean my kids and lady are great, too, but have you tried beer? They should write a romantic comedy about me and beer. It would be a smash hit. Any Hollywood producers want to get that green-lit for me? Well, anyway, I was on Twitter this week, and this is The Weekly Buzz.
The Winter Solstice has just past, and a few more holidays grow nearer, the PorchDrinkers seem to be setting their sights on bigger warmer beers to bring them cheer and warmth. Buried in this weeks selections, you will find new beers, old beers, barrel-aged beers, Bova-poses and fake Bova-poses. Grab your jingle bells, dump the egg nog down the drain, and sit in front of the Yule log. This is What We’re Drinking!
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. That’s right! It’s time for all the winter blockbusters to be released into theaters near you! Whether you’re visiting a wizarding world or making a hyperspace jump to a galaxy far, far away, you can rejoice in the knowledge that many theaters now carry a selection of delicious craft beers. Pre-order some tickets, get a bucket of popcorn, and put your phone on vibrate. This is What We’re Drinking.
As I write this, I am faced with the impending doom of a meal with my in-laws. I have been drinking since 7:30AM, and I hope that my intoxication doesn’t bleed through and ruin the high level of quality that you’ve all come to expect from my writing. You’ll be reading this on Black Friday, so go hide in a closet and wait for the mini-apocalypse to reach its natural conclusion. Submitted for your approval, this is The Weekly Buzz. Good night, and good luck.
