Wit’s End Brewing | The Last Jed-IPA

December 21, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

I’ve learned a few cardinal truths in my years of craft beer fandom. Most fall into the category of brewing basics, such as the fact that Brettanomyces imparts a funky flavor or that fresh-hop season begins in late August. But there are some cultural observations, too—like the industry’s fanatical penchant for Star Wars.

Denver-based Wit’s End Brewing owner Scott Witsoe is no exception to this axiom. Witsoe and his crew unveiled three limited-release beers to coincide with the latest installment of the inter-galactic saga: The Last Jed-IPA, Stay On Target Southern English Brown Ale and Kyber Kristallweizen Pale Kristall Weizenbock.

To boldly go where no beer has gone before, in this day in age is a pretty dubious task. That said, Eugene, OR’s Ninkasi Brewing raised the bar in 2014 when they launched six samples of brewers yeast into space and back and successfully brewed a beer afterwards aptly named Ground Control.

Questions About The Trailer for “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”

October 14, 2017 | Avg. Reading Time: 5 min

The trailer for Star Wars: The Last Jedi is out. The hype, speculation, ticket sales, merch shopping, theorizing and on-air promotion is only going to get more intense from here until the December 15 release date.

I’m sure PorchDrinking will be bringing you plenty of The Last Jedi content – already I’ve got half a dozen ideas for things to write about – but for now, let’s dig into this trailer. If you’re anything like me, you’ve probably watched the trailer 10 or 20 times, looking for new bits of information about what will happen in Episode VIII.

So here are some of the questions we still have about Episode VIII after watching this trailer. Read More

Everything You Need to Know About the “Rogue One” Hype

December 12, 2016 | Avg. Reading Time: 8 min

This is a Sponsored Post from Alamo Drafthouse

After Star Wars: Episode III came out in 2005, consensus was that the series was done; there would be no more Star Wars movies. So I can understand anyone who is confused by all the hype around Rogue One: A Star Wars Story right now. How can a franchise that was supposedly complete get so much buzz? Didn’t I just see promotion for a new Star Wars last year? How can there already be another one? And where are Rey and BB-8 on that poster?

Never fear. As the PorchDrinker most obsessed with the banal details of the Star Wars universe, I’m here to bring you up to lightspeed on why there’s so much hype for Rogue One right now. Confession: because this is the first stand-alone Star Wars anthology movie, it has had to EARN its hype, and thus I am starting at a baseline (0/5 on the hype index) with no expectations and slightly less enthusiasm than normal. But as more details have come out about Rogue One, my excitement has fluctuated – some for the better, some for the worse.

Here is everything you need to know about Rogue One, and one fan’s running tally of how hype has waxed and waned over the last couple years of development.

Election 2016 | The Star Wars Party Awakens

September 14, 2016 | Avg. Reading Time: 4 min

Just about 2 months to go until the god-awful election season is over. Thank goodness. And if you’re one of the many people struggling to find a candidate you care about, we’ve already asked you to consider the GOT Party – in other words, the murder-y borderline-evil characters from HBO’s “Game of Thrones.” It’s a small step in the right direction.

But “Game of Thrones” isn’t the only pop culture institution with characters who could run for President this election season. There are plenty of powerful leaders in a galaxy far, far away who could feasibly make America great again.

That’s right. We invented a political party. The Star Wars Party.

Republicans, Democrats, and Independents alike could stand to take a look at The Star Wars Party. Below, we take a look at a few potential nominees. Like all politicians, they have their pros and cons, but maybe you can find someone you’d vote for this election if you were Forced to.

So contact your state board of elections and let them know you’re changing your affiliation to the Star Wars Party. Because in a messed up two-party system, this Star Wars party could be a new hope for America.

Ultimate 6er | Beers for Twitter’s Emo Kylo Ren

January 6, 2016 | Avg. Reading Time: 4 min

Kylo Ren is the absolute worst. The short-tempered, Force-powered, hero-killing Generation Xer earned that ass kicking at the end of Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

While Kylo Ren is a tough guy to like, Twitter’s Emo Kylo Ren (@KyloR3n) is another story. The genius parody handle is a digital diary of the Dark Side knight. And you guys, life is soooo not easy for Emo Kylo Ren.

Star Wars Themed Beer Names

December 14, 2015 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

You’re the fanatic that clicked refresh 1977 times in order to be the first to purchase tickets for Star Wars The Last Jedi. You’ve concocted the wildest theories ranging from R2D2 actually being a Sith Lord, to the return of IG88; theories so grandiose that even those internet blogger noobs haven’t even thought of yet. When you walk into a brewery and you see a beer name with a nod to Skywalker, Solo and company, you rate it five stars on Untappd based solely on creativity. The Force is strong with you, as it is with these Star Wars Themed Beer Names for both the most intense Star Wars and craft beer geek in the galaxy. I have a bad feeling about this…
