#Stone Brewing Company – 2/2 – PorchDrinking.com
As we enter into November, we are all feeling beaten down and emotionally drained from all of the election coverage. The arguing and stupidity is really starting to take its toll, so it felt necessary to keep it light this …
We’re now in the final throws of October. It’s getting dark earlier, and our beers are getting darker, too. All those dark, roasty malts will keep us warm in the cold months to come. Say goodbye to your lawnmower beer, and embrace the arrival of fall. Prepare to discover What We’re Drinking.
October is upon us, and that means a lot of different things. Fall seasonals are hitting the beer market, and “leafers” are flocking to New England to gawk at autumn foliage. For many in the Southeast, it means evacuating their homes in anticipation of a hurricane. This week in particular will also see a tsunami of brewers and beer enthusiasts slamming into Denver for GABF. To me, it mostly means jealousy because I’m stuck at home. It’s time for us to live vicariously through the Porchdrinking.com staff and find out What We’re Drinking!
This week was chock full of event announcements, new beer releases, and breweries giving back to the community. Hmm, am I forgetting anything? Only the grand opening of Stone’s location in Berlin, and a legendary collaboration brew that took place there! Ladies, gentlemen and children of all ages (but preferably over 21), this is The Weekly Buzz!
There has been lots of news to comb through this week. Tax breaks were enacted, archaic beer laws were scrapped, and possible brewing industry job cuts loom on the horizon. You’ll find all that (plus other announcements and silliness) right here in this weeks’ edition of The Weekly Buzz!
During a trip to Richmond, VA, earlier this spring, I was lucky to receive a behind-the-scenes tour of Stone Brewing Co.’s new East Coast operation. Located in the Fulton neighborhood east of downtown Richmond, the 220,000-square-foot facility was very much in the building stages during my visit, with both hard hat and vest required for walking through the construction site. None the less, it was exciting to see an operation of this size being built from the ground up.
It’s Monday which means the craft beer news is here. I know you don’t have time to sort through all of the beer-related articles, so I compiled the best ones for you. This week, we’re giving you the details about a few pro-golfers that have opened up a brewery, the scoop on New Belgium’s latest beer, and a farewell to the original Stone Pale Ale. Click read more and education yourself with this edition of the Weekly Growler Fill.
This week brings some super duper exciting news. Well, mainly one story in particular: Firestone Walker is coming out with cans just in time for sunny Spring days at the park! Other stories this week are more of the ‘feel-good’ nature: Stone Brewing donated a bunch of money to charity in 2014, there is yet again a new women’s beer mile record, and the CIDER Act is being reintroduced to Congress. Get the details of these headlines and more in this edition of the Weekly Growler Fill.

As is usually the case this time of year, dark weather brings out the dark beer in my libation rotation. Shying away from the conventional brewed coffee, the stout has become my go-to for comfortable drinking. Spending time in Ireland just recently, my liver has come to expect little else than the delicious homemade Guinness that really isn’t the same on this side of the Atlantic. Coming back after a fair share of Black & Tan’s and Baby Guinness Shots (the most delicious shot if Kahlua and Baileys are up your alley), I spent a fair amount of time during the Holidaze getting reacquainted with Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout, Sierra Nevada Stout and the annual Christmas Car Bomb (while abroad, order at your own risk, fyi).
It’s a new week, there’s a new Growler Fill, and I’ve got some major headlines for you. Stone Brewing announced two new brewery locations, Cigar City is ready to set sail on the open ocean, and there is a guy who can pour a beer with his forehead. Keep reading to up your knowledge with the latest craft beer news.
Get a new name, take home some good beer, and find out where to go for your next beer destination vacation. This Growler Fill will help you do this and so much more with this week’s beer news .
Two regular guys set out to brew a simple beer that ended up taking over the world. Well, that is, if you call two Stone Brewing Company veterans with a decade of combined experience “regular guys” and consider winning Stone’s …
