WeldWerks Brewing Company, who wowed the craft beer world by creating more than 100 new SKUs in 2018, recently released their version of a low-calorie beer: Fit Bits.

DONUT PANIC | Beer + Donut Pairings

June 7, 2019 |

If you donut know, National Donut Day is today (June 7)! For all you beer lovers out there who indulge in a donut every now and then, perhaps with an emphasis on the “now,” here’s a pairing that will make your taste buds dance in joy.

There’s always some fun in pairing various foods, sweets, desserts, etc. with various different types of beers. This particular pairing puts an emphasis on the sweet. The dough-y fried/baked goodness that is a donut is such a sweet treat to enjoy on all occasions. So, in preparation for National Donut Day, we hit up Voodoo Doughnuts and raided the beer fridge to create this perfect pairing.

Ultimate 6er | National Pie Day Beer + Pie Pairings

January 23, 2019 |

January 23rd marks National Pie Day. For us beer lovers, it’s just another chance to create a fun pairing between food and delicious craft beer! For me, the idea came about after having visited WeldWerks for the first time. At the time, I’d make weekly trips up to the Boulder Farmer’s Market. There was one stand in particular that I’d make a guaranteed stop at, and that is My Mom’s Pies; they make some of the best pies I’ve tasted my entire life. One day, it hit me as I was enjoying WeldWerks’ Brambleberry Sour: why not enjoy a nice pie for dessert alongside a delicious beer? So, the experiments began. Here are a few pairings that stood out to me:

WeldWerks Brewing | Peanut Butter Cup Achromatic & the Pastry Beer Debate

January 11, 2018 |

Lately, there has been quite a few articles about the rise of pastry stouts and why this is a problem, such as this recent article from the Chicago Tribune that argues we’re forgetting what beer tastes like. In case you did not know, a pastry stout is beerspeak for liquid dessert. Most often, pastry stouts include cacao nibs, vanilla, coconut and other adjuncts that help enhance the stout to emulate sweet treats.

The pastry stout debate, IMO, is moot. As craft beer continues to diversify, so do our taste buds. What is beer supposed to taste like nowadays? The answer is no longer “hoppy,” but subjective. It could be barrel-aged and malty, super hazy or fruity. The craft beer landscape is vast and  ever-changing, with new hop varieties, ingredients, and techniques that pop up every day. Whether you’re a Reinheitsgebot beer purist, or you prefer your beer to taste like a chocolate bomb, the beauty of craft beer is that there is something for everyone. And pastry stouts, much like other styles of beer, if done well, are fantastic. WeldWerks Brewing‘s Peanut Butter Cup Achromatic Imperial Stout is one such example.

What We’re Drinking | June 23, 2017

June 23, 2017 |

I didn’t think the PorchDrinkers were sampling much beer this week. However, when I asked around, I learned that they had been drinking a ton of great beer. As it turns out, they were just having too much fun! They didn’t want to spoil it by sending pictures to the lame What We’re Drinking guy. They’re just too dang cool to be associated with a wet blanket like me. I get it. While I’m in my room eating a gallon of ice cream by myself, feel free to peruse this week’s What We’re Drinking. You can let yourselves out when you’re done. I don’t think you want to talk to me anyway.

What We’re Drinking | January 20, 2017

January 20, 2017 |

January is rolling right along, and many of us are fighting the good fight against seasonal affective disorder. I’m not a licensed physician, but I find that the best tool for self-medication is a big, warming (possible barrel-aged) beer. Apparently the PorchDrinkers agree with me, because they enjoyed a few of those this week. Some think that brighter, fruitier libations are a better panacea for the season, but I believe that those people are quacks. This is What We’re Drinking.
