October 30, 2015 |

Kentucky Derby Beer Cocktail

April 30, 2015 | 1

Confession: The first time I went to a horse race I never saw a horse. I was there for the party and was hanging out in bluegrass fields mixing cocktails. Which brings me to the event of the year happening this weekend, The Kentucky Derby.

Bourbon will be flowing, southern food will be frying and seersucker will be dancing. The royal cocktail of the weekend is the mint julep, which is laced with bourbon, mint, and simple syrup (water and sugar). What could be better than this southern tradition you ask? Adding craft beer to the mix.

The Ballard Brews Cruise

October 10, 2014 |

Craft beer thrives on a few key factors. High quality, small batches, unique beers, and local breweries act as the natural foil to the big bad macro-brewery where distribution, the consistency of standardization, and being “inoffensive” are pretty much all … Read More

Lantern Brewing | Tripel

June 26, 2014 |

Lantern Brewing | Tripel – 8% ABV

If you are even casual fan of Belgian style beers, especially the tripel, you know they can get pretty out there with high ABV, bacteria treated sours, complicated aging processes, and unusual ingredients. They can become so complex that it’s easy to forget why people loved them to start with: they are refreshing, clean-flavored, balanced beers that happen to punch above their weight class in terms of alcohol content.

Epic Ales | The Briny Deep (Ale Brewed with Oysters)

April 1, 2014 |

6% ABV

25 IBU

Ale brewed with Hama Hama oysters

I won’t lie. I’ve been intimidated by this beer since I bought it. I love oysters and I love beer… but did that mean I’d love a beer brewed with oysters? As intrigued as I’ve been with the concept of putting animals in the mash since I read about Cock Ale in “The Joy of Homebrewing,” I was a bit surprised at my trepidation. I worked up my courage throughout the day and eventually cracked my 22.  Read More

Reuben’s Brews – Roggenbier

January 28, 2014 |

ABV: 5.3% IBU: 19

PorchDrinking.com recently had a round table discussion about what beer best suits our personalities.  I found myself unable to come up with an answer that I thought really encompassed the various traits I have.  Sometimes I can be slow and sweet (stout), occasionally aggressive and powerful (Imperial IPA), sometimes delicate and light (Pilsner).  Ok I’m reading that last line and maybe I misunderstood the assignment.
