It’s been an interesting year in beer to say the least. This year we set out to explore a wider array of breweries and beers and came back pretty surprised by what we discovered. And while it would be nearly impossible to break down the best beers from 2019, we looked back on some of our favorites from the past year as well as some of the most stand-out breweries, beer festivals and stories from 2019. Enough exposition, let’s get straight to the honors.
Twitch has become an increasingly popular platform since it launched back in 2011. Now, in 2019, the platform reported having over 15 million daily active users who watch video streams. Although Twitch streams cover a plethora of genres, market researcher Newzoo reported that eSports account for 21.3% of Twitch viewing; Which doesn’t really come as a surprise with the popularity of Fortnite and gaming influencers/professional gamers such as Dr. Disrespect, Tfue, and Ninja (who actually announced an exclusive partnership with Microsoft’s Mixer streaming platform so he is no longer active on Twitch). Like many other activities, cracking a beer while watching your favorite stream can only enhance the experience. Although I personally have not dabbled much in the world of Twitch, I’m very fortunate enough to be dating someone who is. So, he was not only able to teach me more about one of his passions, but help me pair it with one of our shared passions: craft beer!
In 2018, Colorado craft beer consumers had its demand for more met with more supply as the state saw 67 new brewery openings or additions. Astonishingly, this is the most since 2014 when 68 brewery openings occurred.
This week at PorchDrinking, we enjoyed a wide array of craft beers from across the country. At the height of Summer, our team has enjoyed delicious beer at festivals, concerts, cross-country trips, and a slew of outdoor activities. Check out the behind the scenes from this week’s brewventures. This is What We’re Drinking.

Did you wake up this morning, look at the calendar and wonder if it is actually Friday today? Luckily, you’re not alone. One of the many rewards of a Monday holiday is a shorter work week. Some PorchDrinkers traveled over the holiday weekend, some stayed home, and unfortunately some had to work. Despite these differences, we all had one thing in common this week: we enjoyed a delicious brew. Check out what we imbibed in this week’s edition of What We’re Drinking!

I’m well aware that it is 2 weeks past Thanksgiving and I’m just now posting a cranberry sauce recipe. Up on the east coast, our holiday turned into quite the event when all the power went out. Not only did we have to prepare for 30 people coming over to our feast, I needed to find out how to post this recipe. Unfortunately, no electricity means no wifi so I saved this cranberry dream until now. I’m confident everyone at your Christmas party is going to love it.
Many events occurred over the last week and exciting things are about to happen. This week’s Growler Fill celebrates the end of a bill, the beginning of a microbrewery, and much more. Also – prepare your livers because its about to be American Craft Beer Week. As if we needed an excuse to drink more craft beer…
Happy Passover, Jews and non-Jews! If you’re a shiksa like me, you’ll probably be forced to celebrate one way or another. What is a shiksa, you ask? Oh, just a non-Jewish girl trying to temp a Jewish boy into marriage (I think it might be working). Whoever you are, its always fun to celebrate Passover and all Jewish holidays because they usually require a constant supply of food. And whenever food is involved, there’s always a way to incorporate beer. Along with the latkes and kuge, I decided to slow cook a brisket in beer for 6 hours. The beer of choice was Trippel by New Belgium. This ale is brewed with coriander, which makes it the perfect herbal addition to the dish. It’s also the perfect addition to your belly. Since this recipe requires three bottles, you’ll be forced to buy a six-pack. I won’t force you to drink the rest but I highly recommend it.
Ultimate Frisbee and drinking goes hand in hand. Last month during a Halloween tournament, Tristan and I went to New Belgium Brewing and got some beers. The nice thing about dressing up (in tights!) and going to New Belgium is getting some free beer. The beer I got was Imperial Berliner Weiss.
