Beerupyourlife on Pinterest!

There is currently a niche following on Pinterest, often of single girls planning their dream wedding, crock pot recipes that will never be made, and Martha Stewart holiday decorating tips. Stereotypes aside, I actually really enjoy this website. I love to cook, despite lacking creativity. I often use it for meals, or life hacks, and…

Sixpoint Brewing’s Resin

Resin is one of my all-time favorite IPA styles. I thought this video was interesting, and well done. Check this out!

Sierra Nevada’s SFWW Festival

K and I went up to Chico this past weekend to go to Sierra Nevada’s Single Fresh Wet and Wild Festival. There were over 50 breweries with close to 150 beers. It was completely sold out, with plenty of food to eat, and a great energy throughout the whole building. Some highlights for me were…

Happy Friday!

Happy Friday everyone! I’m working at the bar tonight, so I won’t indulging in beer *too much,* but I am looking forward to the weekend! Tomorrow, I’m headed up to Chico with K to go to the Sierra Nevada Wet Hop Festival. There is an extensive list of rare beers that will poured there, and…

Le Terroir 2013

Our wonderful New Belgium Brewing rep surprised us (K and I) with a case of this year’s Le Terroir, to sell at our craft beer bar. This did not stop us from immediately opening up a bottle to share with her. My heart will always be with La Folie, another “Lips of Faith” sour. Le…

Awesome Bottle Shares

Here are some photos from recent bottle shares I’ve either hosted, of attended. There’s far too many beers to talk about, but what has really stood out to me are the sours we shared. Cascade’s The Vine, and The Bruery’s Sans Pagaie were both incredibly flavorful, tart, but not overpowering to the point it affected…

Oak Barrels Win Again

Oak barrels have won again. This Gentlemen’s Club (aged in oak barrels) really has the tasting aroma notes of an Old Fashion cocktail. It has a rich oak taste with notes of cherries and citrus, combining to make a relatively booze-y style beer. It was incredibly smooth, and easy to drink despite the high alcohol…

Bike Dog Brewing

This past Saturday, K and I brought some friends up to Sacramento to take them to very new brewery, Bike Dog Brewing, in West Sacramento more specifically. They are still not considered “open,” and have been doing a soft opening until November 2nd. They will be having a grand opening then. I absolutely love the…

What Does Your Style of Beer Say About You?

This image from the folks at Bite made this excellent guide to beer styles, and their reflection on our personalities. As someone who has a favorite beer style for every mood, I can only come to the conclusion that I am complex, emotional, and quite the lush. What does your beer style say about you?

Attack of the Belgian Style!

I was incredibly lucky to sample Allagash Brewing’s FV13, this past weekend thanks to my good friend Dale, who brought this home from a trip to the East Coast. It was easily one of the best Belgian-style wild ales I’ve had in awhile. I read that this beer is Allagash’s first foudre beer, meaning it…
