Tuesday is Editor’s Choice award day on http://hashtagbeerporn.com. We are giving out an Editor’s Choice Award each week to the picture we think best represents beerporn during that week. As an ongoing feature on Indy Beers each week I’ll be posting the Editor’s Choice winner from #Beerporn. Remember, anyone can join and post pictures of beer to http://hashtagbeerporn.com.
I loved a lot about this picture for the colors and placement of bottle in the stream. Also the follow-up comment was cool to know:
I took this photo 5 feet from our tent.

What I liked about this week’s winning post was the follow-up comment. While I love the pictures posted to the site, I very happy that Skylar took the extra time to do a micro review of the beer in the comments section.
This was actually very good. I’d read a ton of reviews, and they all cited that the beer lost a little something as it warmed up, so I stored mine in the freezer overnight. It poured thick, but clean. The flavor was similar to the 60 minute IPA, albeit, sweeter. For ~120 ibu, this beer was surprisingly sweet, actually. I finished it by the time it was room temp(~30min) and followed with a beer I will post tomorrow. All in all, a good beer I will be buying more of.

I was thinking about what I was going to brew this week when it dawned on me, I can’t brew beer this week. Not because I don’t have time. Not because I couldn’t go to the store and buy supplies. I can’t brew beer this week because I have no where to put it.
You see, I have gone a little nutty with the beer brewing. I decided to see what would happen if I brewed 5 gallons beer every.single.week. 5 gallons of beer is about 2 cases and a 6 pack of beer, but you drop some volume during brewing, so we’ll just say 2 cases. That’s a lot of beer. I can do a keg a week (with a little from my friends), but it’s not the norm.
Currently I have 2 kegs of beer in the fridge, and 4 buckets (5 gallon each) fermenting. I have no more kegs, I have no more buckets, I have no room for more beer. 6 weeks straight of brewing have finally brought me to a place of rest.
We have a new site just for beerporn called http://hashtagbeerporn.com, as in #Beerporn. We’ve been working on the site for over a month now, and the cool thing is that anyone can join and post pictures of beer to the site. We have also been giving out an Editor’s Choice Award each week to the picture we think best represents beerporn during that week. As an ongoing feature on Indy Beers each week I’ll be posting the Editor’s Choice winner from #Beerporn.
This week, we have a backlog to get through as we have been doing this for a few weeks now. So here are the winners for the past three weeks, in the order in which they won.

If you’re on our email list you no doubt got the beerporn email early today with the extra large size images. That, was a mistake. You see, I write most of the content on the site, but I’m trying to get Chris into publishing some content, too (outside of the reviews he does with me). I was walking him through how to upload a post during lunch from his iPhone using the WordPress app and it asked for image size. I told him to go with original, as I have never had to resize the image in my Andriod WordPress app. Well, it turns out there is a setting in the Android app that limits the image to a certain size, whereas in the iPhone app you set the size when adding the image.
Long story short, you got an email with two REALLY BIG images.
After some post lunch testing it has been determined that of the small, medium, large, and original sizes available in the app, it is the large, and not the original, that he should be using. Sorry if we blew up your web browser with our big images, but hey, I hear we’re big on the internet.
