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…

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…

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…

Bottle Share

I just had to share a photo from this week’s bottle share with my friend Pete, and Dale. I could go into how amazing each beer was (with the exception of Mango Magnifico from Founder’s ), and gloat about my beer luck. So, Left Hand Brewing makes some incredible milk stouts, and I am incredibly…

Strangest Beer of 2013

I am a huge fan of New Belgium’s innovative craft series, Lips of Faith. I’m always stoked and excited for new releases, collaborations, and intrigued by their ingredients. The most recent release, the Coconut Curry Hefeweizen, was no exception when I saw it for sale at a bottle shop in Davis, California. In the notes…

“6 Trends We Noticed at the CBC13”

“6 Trends We Noticed at the CBC13” This is a repost from drinks.seriouseats.com, with a great analysis about what’s in store for craft brewing in 2013. While we’re already in April (can you believe it?), I’ve noticed some of these already, especially CANS. More and more we’re seeing canned craft beers, and I don’t think…

New Belgium’s Transatlantique Kriek

If you have not had this kriek yet, you need to reevaluate your priorities. Sour but also a little sweet with the cherries used. It’s got a great carbonation to it that also makes it a little more tart. New Belgium works with a European brewmaster who is internationally renowned for his krieks, and you’ll…

SFBW13: Lips of Faith Tap Takeover

Finally made it out to the Bay Area on Monday (as posted earlier) for my first San Francisco Beer Week event EVER. Luckily, my boyfriend read my blog and knew the places I wanted to go, so our first stop was at Noc Noc Bar in the Lower Haight (near Haight St. & Fillmore St.)….
