what we're drinking Archives – PorchDrinking.com
As the first month of the new year fades away, we are all left with warm thoughts of holidays past and look forward to the next three-day weekend! I am looking forward to that extra Monday off after San Francisco Beer Week 2018 though; it all starts with the SFBW Gala in San Francisco on February 9, and ends with some chill events on the 18th. The 19th I fully plan on sleeping in and repairing what is left of my liver. I hope you enjoy seeing What We are Drinking this past week!
We’re in a post apocalyptic world, guys. Anything could happen. Maybe we’ll start advertising for… oh never mind. That would NEVER happen! Let’s focus on what’s important this week. This is What We’re Drinking.
“I get by with a little help from my friends.”
The days are getting longer, which means more hours to get things done! But don’t let daytime distractions keep you from the most enjoyable parts of life. Also, don’t stress about the hour of sleep we are all going to lose on Sunday. With this loss, we also gain an hour of daylight! Here’s how we spent our waking hours this past week…this is What We’re Drinking.
This week we celebrated Drink it Now Day, a holiday started by Allagash Brewing that encourages craft beer fans to choose something from their cellars to enjoy now, instead of waiting. But let’s be honest, we celebrate that every day here at PorchDrinking. This is What We’re Drinking.
“Studies that we’re aware of show that 63% of craft beer drinkers yearn for the days when Big Beer was great. The craft beer “revolution” is nothing more than a conspiracy to devalue the quality product that our fine American brewers have been creating for decades.” — #AlternativeFacts
These, however, are not Alternative Facts. This is What We’re Drinking this week.
Friday the 13th, a superstition as old as time. At PorchDrinking, we don’t understand how a Friday could get such a bad rap. Maybe we can replace Friday the 13 with Monday the 13. Now that’s something to be scared of. Grab a drink, take a seat. This is What We’re Drinking.
The holiday season comes to a close, but we look back on all the delicious brews we enjoyed during our time with family and friends. We also contemplate giving our livers a break in the new year…..NOT! Here’s What We’re Drinking.
Happy Holidays. Merry Christmas. Happy Hanukkah. Season’s Greetings. Joyous Kwanzaa. Warmest Wishes. Peace on Earth. Happy New Year. However you say it, say it with love. Speaking of love, we love our holiday themed brews. Check out What We’re Drinking during the holidays.
It’s officially the season. You know, the one where people like to say things in archaic phrases such as “‘Tis the season.” And even though it’s still 80 degrees in the southeast right now, christmas trees and lights have adorned the neighborhoods. The cold outside may help create a sense of the season for some people, but the warmth outside won’t stop us from feeling the holiday spirit. This week we tip back our glasses as we welcome the final month of 2016. This is What We’re Drinking.
We at PorchDrinking are equally opportunity drinkers. We believe in all beers, because #beerlivesmatter. We believe that no one style should dominate an entire season. We welcome all styles into our hearts and mouths, year around!
Okay, okay, you get it. It’s basically Thanksgiving and we’re not obsessing over pumpkin spice ales… yet. Check out What We’re Drinking this week.
Raise your hand if your’e still in complete and utter awe over Wednesday night’s victorious outcome for the Chicago Cubs? Not all of us at PorchDrinking are die-hard Cubbies fans, but we can all agree that Game 7 was one of the most epic sporting events in history. And if you’re still feeling the effects of the severe lack of sleep from several late night games this week, you’re just as happy as we are that it’s the weekend. Here’s What We’re Drinking.
Have you ever been on a trip out of state and done quite a bit of beer shopping? You know, you casually search out all the best places to find local craft beer to drink while you’re on your trip. But you end up not drinking any of it because you’re attending a wedding that has plenty o’ booze, so you decide you should probably attempt to pack all the beer into your checked luggage. There’s no way it could be over 50 lbs, right? But you find out that your luggage is over the weight limit and have to remove 12 lbs worth of crap from your checked luggage and shove it into your carry-ons. You don’t know what that’s like? Oh good, neither do I.
Here’s what we’re drinking this week.
Guess who’s back, back again? The PorchDrinking team has rejoined forces to bring back our weekly What We’re Drinking series. As the evenings grow shorter, the temperature begins to drop and we all know that summer is quickly coming to an end. Because of this, we are drinking whatever the hell we want. We love our seasonal brews but let’s be completely honest here. We love #allthebeers. So cheers to another awesome week and hoping we can stretch a little more out of this summer.
