    Voodoo Dolls, Black Magic & Beer: Seducing the Enemy in PDX

    For those that arrived here seeking some sort of news or information regarding craft beer, the industry and the people in it; I hate to disappoint, but this is more of a story than an editorial. Nonetheless, the story is quite lovely - AND, it even ends “happily ever after”. However, don’t get my wrong. [...]

    Mr. Craft Beer “Special Awards” and Superlatives

    Even the Miss USA pageant doesn’t end with the crowning of the victor, so we decided that our “20 Most Eligible Bachelors of Craft Beer” needed to include some special awards as well. Since the men were all judged on three separate measures (please read the rules and criteria on my previous post), we decided [...]

    INTRODUCTION: The 20 Most Eligible Bachelors of Craft Beer

    Some of you (okay maybe just my Dad) might have noticed my lack of blogging in the past few weeks. This is partly due to the fact that I am now gainfully employed by an awesome brewery, whose website and blog have taken priority over my own. It is also partly due to travel; the [...]

    Homebrewing On Campus: The Future of Craft Beer?

    Right now, Rod Stewart’s voice is echoing in my brain: “I wish that I knew what I know now, when I was younger.” Not gonna lie, the closest I got to drinking craft beer in college was probably Guinness. Okay, that is a lie. My parents always had some sort of craft or imported beer [...]

    An Epic Story About a 13 Year Old Who Saved The Day

    This story has nothing to do with beer, sorry folks. This is a tale of epic proportions. It is a story jam packed with action and adventure, suspense, drama, and comedy. It is a story about raw human emotion — fear, anxiety, anger, compassion and happiness. It is a story interlaced with values. There are [...]

    Introducing The BATHROOM BUDDY: The Solution For Weak Bladders

    One of the perks of being a chick at a beer festival (or sporting event) is the relatively short bathroom lines (as compared to the men’s lines). Unless, of course, the event features co-ed port-a-potties. In that scenario, lines can be ENDLESS and EXCRUCIATING. It is truly a fight against the clock. Beer events and [...]

    REFLECTING ON 2009

    A year ago, I would never have predicted that I would  be where I am today. If someone was to tell me that I would have met all of the people that I met, traveled to all of the places that I traveled, and experienced all of the things that I did, I would not [...]

    Wench In Transition

    Miss me? First and foremost, I must apologize to my recent inconsistency of posts and … well, lack of posts. The truth is that I am in transition. And quite honestly, I might be destined for a life of continuous transition. I often tell people that I am a gypsy. Why? I can survive and [...]
