Beer Geek Tour at Sierra Nevada

My little sister recently turned 21, and lives up in Chico- the home to Sierra Nevada. I’m not sure if you heard of that brewery, though. For her birthday, I was able to reserve a very special tour there that includes touring almost their entire facility. I highly recommend to anyone who can schedule the…

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…

Hurray for beer hauls!

I’ve been a little quiet lately, mainly because I’ve been too busy drinking all these amazing east coast & Midwest beers from K. He went home to visit family, and shipped back all these goodies for us to share. So far some major highlights have been Half Acre Daisy Cutter Pale Ale, and I also…

Happy Oktoberfest!!!!

As September is closely ending, and harvest is approaching, it is the start of everyone’s favorite beer festival- Oktoberfest. Also the time to appropriately drink one of my favorite styles, the Märzen, or Oktoberfest. Although simple by some standards, this amber lager is so easy to drink without compromising too much flavor or body. A…

What Will They Come Up With Next?!

Yesterday, I worked at the High Water Brewing booth at the annual fundraiser Breastfest in San Francisco. A company created two icy beers that were intended to place at the top of your beer to help keep it cold. They offered two flavors, both stout, and pomegranate. I did not try it, but saw several…

Firestone Walker Brewery Tour

Kiel and I had the privilege of visiting Firestone Walker this past weekend for their annual invitational beer festival. I also greatly anticipated visiting the brewery for the very first time! Tours are free, and are available frequently throughout the day on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. The tour was incredibly informative, and inspiring to see…

Central Coast Brewing’s Original Chai Ale

I recently visited one of my all-time favorite bottle shops in California, BEERCRAFT, a little slice of heaven, in Rohnert Park. BC is a great spot right off the 101 to check out, in between stops at Russian River, or Lagunitas. While I was there, I was happy to this AHHHHMAZING Original Chai Ale from…

Dust Bowl Brewing Company & Private Tour

Well, I’ve certainly been MIA from my blog these days. After dealing with a series of health problems, computer issues, and overall writers block…I’m back! I recently had the fortune of hosting two of my favorite Bay Area beer geeks and friends, Kim, and Brian, for a fun weekend here in the Central Valley. We…

Hooray for BeerMail!

I recently received another amazing craft beer care package/trade from my friend Evan, who I originally met via Instagram. You can follow his pictures, and amazing adventures here! Not pictured are two cans of Cigar City Jai Alai IPA, because obviously….haha. I love their IPA, and need to find a consistent supply of it! I’m…

Cheers for Beers!

Happy Saturday! I’m so excited to have a day off, and K is up brewing with Ruhstaller today, so I’ve got some free time today. My household chore list is pretty lengthy, so I’ll be opening up my growler of Pliny the Elder, and getting domestic! What beer would you pair with laundry? Hope everyone…

Heretic’s Evil3 Release

Wow, the month of February is just flying by! I recently injured my knee, and then came down with a cold, so I’ve been a little out of commission. I recently had the opportunity to finally visit Heretic Brewing in Fairfield, California, and go on the day of their triple IPA release party. This beer,…

21st Amendment Beer Cheese Spread

I recently came across a Kentucky-style beer cheese dip that sounded incredibly savory, and tasty! I asked a few friends what styles of beer go best with specific cheeses, and hefeweizen was a common suggestion. I decided to change it up a little bit, and use 21st Amendment Sneak Attack Saison, which is easily my…
