Welcome to 2017! Congratulations on making it through another year without flying cars, middle-class suburbs on Mars and Dippin’ Dots becoming the ice cream of the present. This next year is a pandora’s box of opportunity. The sequel to Deadpool, the potential of self driving cars, and the complete shutdown of American government as we know it. Oh, and all the beer that will be brewed and poured! So, sit back, relax and share with us what New Beer Resolutions you have for the upcoming year.

The 2,016th year of the Common Era has come and gone, leaving many high and low points in its wake. Some people may argue that this was one of the worst years in recent memory, but PorchDrinkers don’t like to focus on negatives. We are a mostly optimistic lot, who choose to remember all the positive and happy moments. For many of us, those moments began with a sip of a surprisingly great beer. Together, as a team, we want to to celebrate the best beers of 2016.
New Years Eve can be one of the most memorable nights of the year, but it can also be extremely expensive or douche-tastic. Luckily for beer lovers, many Denver-area craft breweries will host cheaper, more casual parties to ring in the new year. From multiple course dinners and special beer releases to cover-free parties, you’ll be able to find an event that’s just your style.
Here’s our guide to New Years parties to help you make your plans:
PorchDrinking supports the journey toward self-improvement but most importantly, we would like you to enjoy your favorite brews along that road.
In honor of January’s inevitable New Year’s Resolutions, we offer up the Ultimate 6er to pair with the most common personal goals.
Drink more craft beer!
So much amazing beer… so little time.
Don’t become a snob.
Yes we love to promote Craft, but really it all starts with beer to begin with. When talking to our friend in Kentucky they mentioned that right now it’s all about getting people to enjoy beer first, then expanding their horizons. So drink beer. Whether it’s Coors or Westy 12.
