#October Archives – PorchDrinking.com
The Pottstown Brew Fest is back for another year of celebrating craft beer, wine, cider, food and great music. The award-winning fest is returning to Pottstown Saturday, October 28 but it will be held at a new location — the Norco Fire Company. From 12-4:30 p.m., guests can sample beer and cider from some of the finest craft brewers in the Mid-Atlantic region and from across the United States.
Hooray for the spooky chill in the air. Besides the overwhelming benefits of better sleep in a cool bedroom, it’s Halloween time! One of our family’s favorite holidays. Bring on the autumn beer and horror movies!
To some people, the coming of October signifies fall and all of its glory: cooler temps, bonfires, and all things pumpkin. To others, October is a month long celebration of Halloween where we gorge ourselves on candy and dress up in crazy costumes. While too much candy can leave one feeling slightly hungover from the sugar crash, we think Halloween candy and beer make the perfect companions, in the right proportions of course. Curious what your favorite candy pairs with? Read on for our recommendation on all sorts of treats.
October was a really fantastic month for new music. We’re bringing you the highlights in our new PorchDrinking Playlist—everything from Miley (hate on her all you want, but try to get Wrecking Ball out of your head) to new songs from Arcade Fire and The Avett Brothers. Also included are a couple tracks from the recently departed Lou Reed, one of the greatest musicians of arguably the greatest era.
Now that we have quite the list of beers to try out thanks to the fantastic team effort at GABF this past week, we need some tunes to pair with those tasty selections. This playlist combines new albums and new collaborations from the liked of Deltron with his follow-up album to the Deltron 3030 with Event II.
October is such a wild month. In all regards, it starts with relative ease. Only a slight chill to the weather, only a budding budget squabble in Washington, only flowery decorations on your neighbors porch. But the deeper we fall down October’s rabbit hole, the more madness consumes us. I’m talking about fall frosts, a government shutting down, and terrifying(ly awful) cotton cobwebs and sheet-ghosts on every corner. But hey, at least our popular culture is safe. It’s not like we’re slowly marching to a holiday that metaphorically AND literally celebrates this horror, one that completely consumes the collective culture of everything pop and pulp. Oh, wait.
