Eat Your Heart Out

My refrigerator is a dream right now! I was able to pick up a few cases of Goose Island Bourbon County today, and a good friend passed along some great beers from his recent trades. They can also be seen in the front row. If Thanksgiving wasn’t enough to remind me what I’m thankful for,…

What Was In Your Glass?

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving with their friends, and loved ones. I know I did, and I’m definitely still full from the amount of food and beer that was consumed. Over the last couple weeks, the internet has been buzzing with what beers everyone would be drinking, and/or pairing with their Thanksgiving dinners….

Saturday’s Beer Haul

This past weekend, K and I went up to Sacramento to pick up beer. Between Capital Tap Room, and Whole Foods everything we got is pictured above. That night we cracked open two 32oz bottles of Lagunitas Sucks and played our self-made Law and Order SVU drinking game. It’s always way fun, and the craft…

Women and Beer: A 4,500-Year History Is Coming Full Circle

Women and Beer: A 4,500-Year History Is Coming Full Circle This article was recently posted on The Atlantic’s website. It’s informative in interviewing women who brewing, and more involved in the industry, and compares the history of beer with today. It was also a great shout out to programs celebrating women in the industry such as The…

What’s On Your Shelf?

Here’s a photo of K’s and my cabinet of glasses. We recently had to get rid of all of our basic glassware because our beer glasses were just taking over! It’s great having so many, and so many styles, that we can actually serve our beers at home in the appropriate styles as well! K’s…

A New Logo

My friend Tiffany, who is an amazing artist, drew a great picture of me! I now have a logo that works for all mediums that I use. If you’re on Twitter, Instagram, Google+, Tumblr, and obviously, WordPress, you’ll see this image! I am so stoked.

Some Recent Goodies

This past weekend, we decided to not go out of town, and stay at home. We went out to my favorite steakhouse where they had both Sierra Nevada Celebration IPA, and Tioga Sequoia Tamarack Amber Lager on draft. So while I had my dinner I got to sip on some good brews too. This weekend…

Happy Stout Day!

This was my second stout of the day, a gift from a friend who lives in New Mexico. Earlier today, I had some Chocolate Sombrero from  Clown Shoes Brewing. It’s a great day to sample different styles, and flavors. I love seeing all the internet communities, and beer bars, organize events with certain beers on…

A Feat Achieved!

Okay, I’m actually kind of proud of this. I’ve reached 1000 beers on Untappd! If you’re not familiar, it’s a beer tracking app that lets you keep track of what you, and your friends are drinking. It also gives you the opportunity to win badges for what you drink. Think beer meets foursquare, meets Girl/Boy…

My October Favorites

October was a month of good fortune when it comes to beer for K and I. We were lucky to visit Sierra Nevada for their Single, Fresh, Wet and Wild festival, and sample what felt like hundreds of beers. We also visited Southern California again, and visited The Bruery, and Bootlegger’s Brewing. I feel a little biased in…

Bootleggers!

After our trip to The Bruery, we made it over to Fullerton, California, to Bootleggers. I only had a couple beers of theirs, before this visit. Their brewery and tap room was in a warehouse, and reminded me of my Sacramento friends, Track7. My beertender was incredibly helpful, as I told him which beers I…
