Every Day Pairings #1- Shower Beers

I recently signed up for a website called Influenster, and have started to receive products in hopes of reviews. Truthfully, I’m still waiting for these sites to send me beer. Until then, I will gladly accept things such as Gillette’s Venus Razor to use as I’m getting ready with my shower beer. I don’t know…

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, the time of year that makes me proud of the progress my infamous town has made. STOCKTON BEER WEEK! In its third year, this is slated to be the best beer week yet. The participation from restaurants has increased tremendously, and the days of events have as…

Why Dump Water on Yourself, When You Can Drink It?

Over the last couple of weeks, our social media feeds have been graced with long-lost high school friends who have dumping buckets, cups, or hoses of ice water on themselves to raise “awareness” to ALS, or Lou Gherig’s disease. Unfortunately, many people do not discuss what this disease is, or what we can do to…

Beer Up Your Life Goes to Print!

This month was very exciting for me! I had my first beer article go to print! It was for a small local magazine about Stockton, and while it does not have a website-I wanted to be able to share my article on my favorite spring styles in The Life on the Mile magazine. They just…

Sf Beer Week ’14

Unfortunately this year, I was not able to go to nearly as many of events as I did in years past. This was a record-high year for them, with over 600 events, and it always seemed to be expanding. This year, I was not able to enjoy Pliny the Younger, go to any new brewery…

#TBS54!!!!

Tonight I will be hosting the Twitter Bottle Share, a weekly beer chat online. Every week there is a theme, either covering a style, specific beer, or brewery. I chose bock-style beers as it is one I’m more unfamiliar with, and would like to explore more. Also, I chose this style as we are approaching…

Looking Back on 2013

This past year was filled with wonderful beers, brewery tours, and adventures. I have been incredibly fortunate to have a partner, who encourages my blogging, and also takes me to breweries, festivals, or brings home a surprise. I really enjoyed writing out my top 5 beers each month this past year, and wanted to change…

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.

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…

Help out House of Pendragon!

House of Pendragon is an up and coming craft brewery out of the Fresno area. I learned about them from my guys over at The Perfect Pour Podcast, as Tommy was a recent guest on their podcast. Tommy has started distributing kegs to the Fresno area, and as someone who also lives in the Central…
