Brew Day Playlists | Creature Comforts Brewing Co.September 4, 2018 | Chris & Sylvia Hollands
In this edition of the PorchDrinking Playlist, we bring you the music that inspires Georgia’s very own Creature Comforts Brewing Co. In the past four years, Creature Comforts has grown to become not only one of Georgia’s most well-respected breweries, but also one of the country’s fastest-growing brands. Who knew they were going to draw fans from all over the nation? As always, we were curious about what kind of music resonates within the walls of the restored historic warehouse while whipping up fresh batches of brews. Just how does the sound reverberate across the walls with the guts dating back to the 1940s? Does this influence the beer being produced? Let’s find out!
PorchDrinking Playlist | Dabble in JazzNovember 21, 2017 | Holly Gerard
While I am not an expert on the jazz genre by any means, I like to turn some of it on now and again for a chill atmosphere vibe. Being inspired by the jazz musician friends I have had in my life, I have learned enough here and there to put together a playlist of classics and feel confident enough to dabble in the genre a little bit. It’s quite relaxing for cooking, computing or even beer sipping. Kick back and enjoy. Read More
PorchDrinking Playlist | Sound MeltOctober 17, 2017 | Sarah Boisen
To the delight of my taste buds and indignation of my waistline, I’ve recently discovered that for whatever reason, fall appears to be synonymous with baking. An endless stream of … Read More
PorchDrinking Playlist | A Little Bit of Wes AndersonSeptember 26, 2017 | Holly Gerard
Is it just me or does it seem long overdue for a new Wes Anderson movie? Recently, while talking about the Rolling Stones with friends I thought about making a playlist of (some) songs from Wes Anderson movies; he really likes to repeat themes of fore-mentioned Rolling Stones, Orchestra clips, David Bowie via Seu Jorge, Alexandre Desplat, the Ramones and more. There is a lot of songs from all of his movies to cram into one playlist so I decided to do a small sampling over a variety of his films. Hopefully this will tide us all over until 2018 when Isle of Dogs is supposed to premiere. Until then… Read More
PorchDrinking Playlist | Trail TunesSeptember 12, 2017 | Sarah Boisen
I’ve spent a solid part of summer scampering along trails in search of that mountain magic. Although it’s hard to beat the au naturel soundtrack that only the great outdoors can provide, I’m also complete sucker for pairing tunes with trails (and of course, a tasty beer at the top).
PorchDrinking Playlist | Sister ActJuly 18, 2017 | Danny King
Recognizing a dire lack of new music to play on sun-sparkled highways and in the background of Sofia Coppola nature scenes, HAIM came out with a new album this month. The sisters Danielle, Este and Alana have been celebrated for their evocative California cool aesthetic before. “Something to Tell You” has been credited for its callbacks to acts like Fleetwood Mac and Bonnie Raitt. However, I still haven’t seen anyone tackle the interplay of the sisters’ vocal. Almost all the choruses are sung in unison as well as many other portions, voices mixing into one. The “close harmony” distinctive sounds of the 30’s and 40’s were dominated by sister acts. Since those early days, bands were comprised in whole or part by sisters and have played a dominate role in the music of the day. Read More
PorchDrinking Playlist | Red Rocks Summer 2017June 29, 2017 | Holly Gerard
Red Rocks Amphitheater just outside of Denver, Colorado is one of those very iconic places bands love to play at and fans love to go to for concerts. Each Spring, Summer, and Fall they host numerous bands of all genres and most of the shows end up selling out, because why not? With these lineups it is hard to pass any of these shows up! We’ve put together a playlist to get you ready for your big concert-going season at the famous outdoor venue.
PorchDrinking Playlist | Grill GreatnessJune 27, 2017 | Sarah Boisen
Summer is officially here which means that the sky is out, thighs are out and dad bods draped in RompHims have officially taken up residence at the grill. As Ron Swanson once pointed out, “since mankind first set meat atop fire, it has been perfect.” If you too share this sentiment and are hoping to take your flame game up a notch this holiday weekend, you’ve come to the right par-tay.

PorchDrinking Playlist | A Night At The 90’sburyJune 22, 2017 | Karl Kalinkewicz 1
I’ve been feeling strangely nostalgic lately. The combination of summer’s impending zenith and a recent trip to visit my adolescent stomping grounds stirs up all sorts of memories, and for me those memories are always tied to a soundtrack. And while it takes a lot to admit this publicly, the current flashback montage in my brain happens to be set to a thumping bass rhythm, some heavy synth, and heads violently nodding sideways, 90’s club style.
PorchDrinking Playlist | Windows Down, Volume UpMay 23, 2017 | Mathew Powers
The transcendental experience provided by the combination of a sweet summer, sun-kissed breeze and the right song is surreal. It calms. It centers. It also energizes and inspires. In a month dominated by big beer buyouts, political turmoil and the sad, unexpected death of Chris Cornell; it’s easy to get lost in all of life’s difficulties. Well, forget all that for a bit. Get in the car, find an open road, don some shades, feel the breeze and listen to some road tunes picked by a few PorchDrinking.com writers and editors.
PorchDrinking Playlist | An Ode to Summer Movie SeasonMay 16, 2017 | Karl Kalinkewicz

It’s funny how Hollywood has decided that the best time to release their biggest, CGI-fueled blockbusters is during the season when the weather is finally nice enough that you actually want to go outside. I blame Los Angeles’ eternal summer for Hollywood’s ignorance of seasons. But, here we are in early May, and as Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 gets our Baby Groots dancing, let’s take a moment to pay tribute to one of the great American pastimes: the hit soundtrack song.

It’s no secret that Ethan Buckman of Stickman Brews is one of my favorite figures in Pennsylvania beer. His open fermented, style-defying beers are delicious and inventive, and Ethan himself is an all around good dude. When I bothered him in the middle of a work day to ask about his brewhouse music selections, he responded quickly and enthusiastically.
PorchDrinking Playlist | Fall Y’allNovember 1, 2016 | Sarah Boisen
Happy fall, y’all! The weather has finally taken a turn for the chilly and pumpkin spice flavored everything has made its return to basic greatness. We’re here to spice up the cozy months ahead with yet another seasonal stockpile of sounds that are old, new and pumpkin optional.
PorchDrinking Playlist | Basic WitchesOctober 31, 2016 | Sarah Boisen
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.

PorchDrinking Playlist | March Madness PlaylistMarch 25, 2015 | Ellie Thompson
This week’s playlist has nothing to do with basketball. BUT, it has everything to do with March, and everything to do with (music) madness. In truth, it is a hodgepodge of new and old music, spanning the genre spectrum from hip-hop/rap to indie-pop. Regardless of your music taste, there’s something on this March Madness playlist for everyone! Read More
