Event Recap | Stone DRK Beer FestNovember 15, 2019 | Jadon Flores
The Stone DRK Beer Fest was set to kick off right at 6 p.m. The grounds of the Stone gardens is beautiful, tranquil and primal. Rocks and boulders are everywhere with the natural landscape coming through between the ponds and small brooks. On the site there are multiple tasting booths, some serving straight from bottles, other serving from keezers and kegerators, and of course one of the bars.

Time flies when you’re having fun, and hopefully you’re drinking good beers along the way because we definitely are. Here’s What We’re Drinking. Read More

Summer is in full swing and for me so far, the highlight has been the Women’s World Cup games. I’ve been on the edge of my seat watching some of the most talented women in the world compete in the quadrennial matches, always with a craft beer in hand. The U.S. Women’s National Team plays today in a do-or-die match against France, here are some recommendations from your PorchDrinking team what to imbibe while cheering on the #1 team in the world in this week’s What We’re Drinking.

You know what’s great about beer? Whether you love the holidays or find yourself embracing your inner Scrooge, beer tastes sweet either way. It’s either used for a celebration or for comfort, depending on your current level of holiday stress. If you’ve gotten all your shopping done, gold star for you. You’re quite a few steps ahead of me. But if you’re forgetting to stock your beer fridge in lieu of stocking stockings, the PorchDrinkers have some great ideas for inspiration this week to fill the craft beer void in your life. This is What We’re Drinking.

And in addition to pouring Stone beer, Stone has hand-selected some of the best breweries in the world and invited them to join for an event with food, music, private tastings and the best place to drink beer in California this weekend.

The Weekly Buzz | June 15 – 21June 22, 2018 | Dan Bortz
This week’s mini-rant is going to be dedicated to the horrifyingly low availability of craft beer in Myrtle Beach. Yes, I know that there are a few places with a halfway decent selection, BUT the Grand Strand covers a shocking long chunk of coastline. I don’t always want to drive 30 minutes round-trip just to grab a late-night sixer. Today I bought a four-pack of Miller High Life pounders in a Dollar General. That’s what I’ve sunk to. While I wallow in the depths of macro despair, I submit this edition of The Weekly Buzz.
The Weekly Buzz | April 27 – May 3May 4, 2018 | Dan Bortz
This freaking weather is driving me insane. First it was cold, and now it’s 90 degrees. I just turned the heat off two days ago. It shouldn’t have been necessary to turn the air conditioner on today. Mother Nature needs to cool her jets and enjoy a fine craft beer. Despite the sweat puddle that’s accumulating under my desk, I still managed to find a bunch of fun stuff on Twitter and Instagram. Sit down in front of your favorite oscillating fan and enjoy The Weekly Buzz!
Ultimate 6er | Surviving the Snow DaysDecember 6, 2016 | Andrew Sharp
The snow is falling in parts of the country. While some states have yet to see its first flurries, others got over 20 inches of snow over night this month. Before the snow piles so high we give up and resign ourselves to the couch, filling our days with binge watching Netflix, we’d like to offer a few choices for provisions to stock up on. Better prepared than sober, I say.
Stone Brewing Co.| Pataskala Red IPAMarch 2, 2016 | KC Dunstan
ABV: 6.2% | IBUs: 70
This is a technically a review of Stone Brewing Co. Pataskala Red IPA, but it’s really a story of remembering your roots.
Last spring, Watkins Memorial High School in Pataskala (pronounced Puh-ta-skuh-luh), Ohio, had a problem. Their school district needed to pass a levy or ALL extracurricular activities would be cut, from sports to band. Freshman Ally Jeffers depended on band to get her through the day, a creative outlet that challenged her like no other class. The levy had failed twice before and the situation looked dire. That’s when inspiration struck- Ally wrote a letter to Stone Brewing CEO/Founder Greg Koch (Watkins Memorial class of ’81) asking for help.
Stone / 4 Hands / Bale Breaker Collaboration | Sorry Not SorryDecember 26, 2015 | Niel Stender
ABV: 9.3% | IBU: 70
Magic Hat #9 was my gateway craft beer. Easy drinking with just a hint of apricot. Still a favorite. So when I heard about Sorry Not Sorry being brewed with peaches, it immediately triggered a happy #9 association. Then I saw who was involved. Stone, check. 4 Hands, double secret probation check. And Bale Breaker. I’ll be honest, I’m not familiar with them but to be a part of this crew, they’re obviously top shelf.
Stone Brewing Co. | 19th Anniversary Thunderstruck IPASeptember 18, 2015 | Gregory Acero
ABV: 8.70% | IBUs: 95
I thought to myself “the only way to drink this beer, is blasting AC/DC’s ‘Thunderstruck’ while drinking from a glass with the god … Read More

Stone Brewing Company- Southern Charred
Stone Brewing Southern Charred reminds me of my childhood for a number of peculiar reasons. First, it should be noted that I originally hail from the great state of Kentucky. As a result, I’ve developed a natural affinity toward all beers Bourbon-barreled, and Southern Charred just so happens to fall into that category.
Stone Brewing Company – RuinTen IPASeptember 16, 2013 | Lindsay Krumel
Our awesome founder Tristan Chan came to the great state of Ohio over Labor Day weekend for the Gentlemen of the Road Stopover in Troy, and with him he brought a suitcase full of beer. I mean, would any of us expect anything less? His only requirement was that I write up a review on the bomber (22 fluid ounces) Stone RuinTen IPA, so here I am. Read More
Lexington Craft Beer Week PreviewMay 16, 2013 | Jason Behler
The Beatles got one thing wrong: happiness is not a warm gun. No, no. Happiness is a week celebrating craft beer in your home town. And by a serendipitous turn of events this one kicks off on the back end of my birthday weekend. So what that really means is that Lexington’s Craft Beer Week coincides with my birthday week (that’s right, we celebrate birthdays for a week round these parts). Read More
Ultimate 6er | Summer Movie Beer PairingsMay 8, 2013 | Jason Behler 1
As we inch into the sunny days of May, the impending summer vacation for teachers beams like a beacon of hope, eclipsing the flickering fluorescent lights and mounting stacks of ungraded papers. As teachers, my wife (Sarah) and I use the summer months as we did as children – as a time for relaxation and recreation (albeit with supplemental jobs and some mandatory professional development trainings scattered about). But we travel, stay up a little later, work in our garden, and try to cram everything into that brief span when students aren’t around. Read More

Stone Brewing’s- Lukcy BasartdNovember 29, 2012 | Tristan Chan
Pump the breaks on that spell checker, Stone’s Lukcy Basartd needs no correction. After initially noticing the devious yet iconic demonic image on the front, beer purveyors need flip the bomber over to notice a hefty description about Lukcy Basartd’s origins. Oh and it should be noted that the entire description is also written in that same disjointed misspelled jargon.
