The Weekly Buzz | June 22 – 28

June 29, 2018 |

I’m back from vacation and gotten back to my daily grind. After one shift at work, I’ve decided that it is already time for another holiday. Why is that first day back always so hard? I can’t even drink beer to cope because I’m trying to undo the damage that I did with a week of seafood buffets and booze. Luckily, “Beer Twitter” was actually pretty fun this week! Here’s all the shenanigans worth sharing. It’s The Weekly Buzz!

The Weekly Buzz | May 18 – 24

May 25, 2018 |

I’m totally stoked for Memorial Day weekend. I don’t have to work, which in itself is a rarity, and I also used two vacation days to finagle an entire week off. But let’s not forget the reason that we don’t have to work on Monday. Use every sip of beer as an opportunity to toast those who have fallen in service to our country. They paid the ultimate price so that I could post some nonsense I found on Twitter. This is The Weekly Buzz.

I’m not going to lie to you. I barely got on Twitter this week, and the bulk of that time was arguing the pronunciation of Hefeweizen with some podcasters. Despite that, I think I still managed to find a bunch of fun posts to share with you all! The most dominant theme was #DrinkItNow Day. I normally ignore made-up Twitter holidays, but this one seems worthwhile. Encouraging you beer-hoarding nerds to empty out your cellars is a mission I can really get behind! Open up that vertical of barrel-aged Stouts and enjoy The Weekly Buzz!

The Weekly Buzz | September 15 – 21

September 22, 2017 |

Today is the first day of fall, although you wouldn’t know it. It’s supposed to be in the 80s again in Pennsylvania. Ridiculous. Oktoberfest beers are releasing, and I’m stuck here wondering how exactly I’m supposed to enjoy a ridiculously oversized Märzen in that kind of heat? I guess I will just have to suck it up and muddle through. Finish off those summer seasonals that you’ve been hoarding and get ready for The Weekly Buzz!

What We’re Drinking | February 3, 2017

February 3, 2017 |

The PorchDrinkers didn’t enjoy as many beers as we would have liked this week. Some of us succumbed to seasonal illnesses that made delicious beer turn to ash on our ruined palates. Others of us were in such dire straits that we were forced to turn to “doctors” for relief. Their strange tonics did the trick but, alas, could not be taken with alcohol. A fair few of us were just busy. That happens sometimes, right? The intrepid souls who remain offer you their libations of choice. Come forth and discover What We’re Drinking!

If you want to fill your calendar with beer events, you have hit the mother lode! There were tons of announcements this week. I, on the other hand, work most weekends and will have to drink alone in my free time. That’s not sad, is it? I may be a sad sack, but you don’t have to be! This is The Weekly Buzz.

The first week of the year has been chock full of new beer and event announcements. Hopefully, this is a sign that 2017 will be a great year for craft beer. I’ve already started marking release dates on my calendar and making room in my refrigerator. Forget 2016. That was a garbage year. We’ve got to focus our positive energy on the next 359 days!

As I write this, I am faced with the impending doom of a meal with my in-laws. I have been drinking since 7:30AM, and I hope that my intoxication doesn’t bleed through and ruin the high level of quality that you’ve all come to expect from my writing. You’ll be reading this on Black Friday, so go hide in a closet and wait for the mini-apocalypse to reach its natural conclusion. Submitted for your approval, this is The Weekly Buzz. Good night, and good luck.

12 Beers of Christmas Day 2 | Southern Tier Krampus

December 15, 2014 |

ABV: 9%

Krampus: an under-appreciated mythic figure during the holiday season. That is, up until recently. We have always received the stories and quaint images of good old St. Nicholas, the jolly fellow who gives the “good” kids gifts in their stockings. Krampus is the imp-like figure that, depending on the European myth, bestows upon the naughty kids bad gifts or even kidnaps them and brings them to his lair. Sounds pleasant…

Thankfully, the Krampus that I will be talking more about today is the complete opposite from our devilish comrade; it is a present provided to us from Southern Tier, and it is the perfect refreshment for any of your December festivities.
