September 29, 2015 0

Greetings from Ohio! My love for beer started at an early age.

My mother would yell first, then say Read More

Don’t Label Me, Bro

September 26, 2015 1

As craft beer drinkers, every day we are bombarded with terms others use to describe us. Hop head, beer nerd, whale chaser, beer snob, etc. Where do you fit? I’ve written about my struggle with being called a beer snob, and how I feel about that term. In my mind, the ‘beer snob’ is kind of a jerk. Snob, by definition, Read More

Hold the Bacon: Beer and Vegetarianism

September 25, 2015 5

Beer and bacon! Beer and barbecue! Announcing our special beer dinner with four courses of pork! Sounds great, except … I don’t eat pork. Or any meat. Craft beer culture is in full swing, and with it is a heavy focus on meat. Beer festivals serve not only tasty brews, but an abundance of red meats and sausages. Beer pairing Read More

The Glory of Shower Beers

September 24, 2015 0

Tierney has touched on this in the past, but here at Stouts & Stilettos we are big proponents of… SHOWER BEERS! Now that I’m a full time parent, I have to say I appreciate it even more.

Kombucha 101-A Crash Course

September 16, 2015 1

We all have friends who seem to stay up on the newest health fad or even the newest health drink. They are the ones that participated in hot yoga first and have been drinking kombucha before anyone knew what either one was. Now to be honest hot yoga is not for me, I have this worry I will start to sweat Read More

Spring House Brewing Company: New Digs

September 15, 2015 2

I love a good Craft Brewery Growth story. Even more so when the craft brewery is local and has solid beer recipes. I’m all about supporting and cheering on the little guy as they take risks and grow their business. Spring House Brewing Company in Lancaster, Pennsylvania is one of those examples. In 2006, the brewery operated out of a Read More
