The Beer Wench Featured on NEW BREW THURSDAY 4

I hate to play favorites in the blogosphere. I would love to use the analogy of “Mama Wench” and say that picking a favorite blogger is like picking a favorite child — I love each and every one of them in their own special ways. But that just sounds creepy. Especially since 1. I am […]

Cicerone Certified Beer Server 10

Anyone can call themselves an expert on beer. Heck, my personal business cards say Beer Connoisseur in lieu of having a “job title”. But what does that really mean? After all, it is a self-proclaimed title. It would be like calling myself a wine aficionado. Sure I know more about wine than your average person, […]

The Wench vs. SDBW: Round 1 7

For those of you who are lucky enough to follow me on twitter, you are probably acutely aware of my recent voyage to San Diego for beer week. In fact, I’m almost positive that many of you may hate me for the events I attended and the beers I tasted. Heck, I would hate me […]


LIFE & LIMB BEER DINNER 3

I’m referring to the opportunity to meet both Sam Calagione, founder of Dogfish Head, and Ken Grossman, founder of Sierra Nevada. And let […]

De Proef Announces Van Twee & Witte Noire 1

Very few things get my pulse racing quite like new beer releases from my favorite breweries. Especially, when the beers are unorthodox and deviate from traditional beer style guidelines.  The more bizarre a beer, the faster my heart begins to beat. And don’t get me started on sours — wild yeast beers trigger spontaneous convulsions […]

Most Compelling BEER Personalities on TWITTER 31

Several bloggers and other internet sources have written posts about the “most influential” or “top” people to follow on Twitter — in specific topics of interest (such as food, wine, social media, etc…) However, everyone seems to be over looking the beer community. Pssshhhaw. How rude. Us beer geeks can be influential and important too, […]

ORVAL Vertical Tasting 6

Recently, I was given a rare opportunity to taste a vertical of ORVAL vintages. The 3 different vintages included: April 2009 -> 5 months old May 2007 -> 1 year nine months old October 2002 -> 7 years old The 7 year Orval was probably the “oldest” beer that I’ve tasted. I found it rather […]
