If there was one thing that helped me get through a rough week at work, it is knowing that the social media coordinator at Wicked Weed Brewing has a much harder job. Any time a craft brewer is bought out by big beer, you can be 100% certain that a twitterstorm of epic proportions is on the horizon. It’s a meteorological fact. Ask any scientist. I can’t even get Wicked Weed in my state, and it’s still a sad turn of events. My hatred of ABInBev burns with the intensity of a thousand suns. They’ll probably merge with Walmart next, forming the Buy-N-Large corporation, which will eventually force us from this planet to aimlessly roam the galaxy (a la the Disney/Pixar film Wall-E).
Through no fault of our own, we didn’t get to post What We’re Drinking last week. The opposition party believes that this was caused by a vast international conspiracy. Luckily, the chairman of the House Beer Blog Oversight Committee assures me that there is nothing to worry about and has canceled all future hearings on the matter. We should be in the clear, as long as Fake Tears over in the Senate doesn’t dig too deep into this. In order to wipe this minor oversight from your minds, I present a special two-week edition of What We’re Drinking. Fake news!
It doesn’t seem like many PorchDrinkers indulged this week. I know I didn’t. The combination of my work schedule and my weight-loss goals have had me abstaining since Saturday. This week we praise the intrepid few. Four beer warriors have kept up the good fight while others could not. This is What We’re Drinking.
Beer is a love language all on its own. This Valentine’s Day, show your love language by indulging in one of these chocolate-infused craft beers oozing with rich, sweet chocolate goodness. This Ultimate Round Up will help you find the ultimate chocolate beers. You can forgo the chocolates and roses this year. We won’t judge.
Roses are red. Violets are blue. Candy is sweet & beer can be, too.
Have you found your home filled with all kinds of sweet, heart-shaped treats? Or maybe you have plans for a nice Valentine’s Day dinner with your loved one and are looking for dessert and beer pairings? If so, you’ve come to the right place. We paired six different Valentine’s Day treats with a complimentary beer.
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.
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.
