It’s unfortunate that it takes public relations disasters like the recent Founders Brewing litigation and other instances of sexual harassment and sexism to open up a greater dialogue around diversity in craft beer. Over the past several months, we’re finally seeing more breweries address the industry’s lack of diversity head-on. Some are also realizing that embracing diversity in their brewhouses and taprooms has benefits beyond PR. The Brewer’s Association points out that cultivating diversity isn’t just a feel-good effort: “Research studies increasingly show that diversity and inclusion (or D&I) can help increase a business’ bottom line, drive innovation, attract more talent, attract more customers and create more opportunities for growth.”
Did you know February was national snack month? But, let’s be honest and admit that every month is snack month for beer drinkers. So, we will not be boxed in by some arbitrary month. Now that it is March, we will rebel and celebrate it now, and we will celebrate it forever. I think it was Aristotle who said, “All people by nature desire snacks.” (Source: various fancy-looking memes on Google Images, which I’m sure are accurate.)
Who among us hasn’t gotten the munchies when sipping a beer? So, I asked a few PorchDrinking writers about their favorite snack to pair with beer and decided to post the results of that (highly scientific) conversation. How would one go with your friends? What’s your favorite snack? Let us know.

When new or traveling to a city, it’s always important to get a lay of the land. Whether it’s finding a solid general practitioner, a good mechanic, a trustworthy dentist or your go-to for Taco Tuesdays, establishing your go-to’s for the most important aspects of your life can be a taxing ordeal.
Luckily if you’re in need of a solid liquor store or bottle shop in Denver, PorchDrinking has you covered. Our Denver team recently rounded up their favorite bottle shops in the Denver metro area, which includes several nearby suburb areas of Aurora, Wheat Ridge, Parker, and Highlands Ranch.
Either way, we asked our staff to tell us their favorite added ingredients.
