Happy National IPA Day to You, Even If (you think) You Hate IPAs

Happy IPA Day everybody! Yes, today is the one day a year that you have an excuse, or better yet, an obligation, to enjoy a delicious India Pale Ale. Heck, enjoy a few of them. We certainly won’t judge you, especially on such a holy day such as National IPA Day!

But if you’re more into beer than candy and flowers, there’s a whole other reason […]

Prost to Pumpkin Beer and PorchDrinking

Prost! We hope you got out to a Oktoberfest celebration or two last weekend. We sure did! We visited Breckenridge for their annual Oktoberfest weekend which, as always, is loads of fun.

It’s Friday and it’s Valentine’s Day.  Queue up the Cure’s “Friday I’m in Love” and celebrate with the one you love…. BEER.
