My craft beer journey began with a cold Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. This was most likely right out of the bottle. As soon as that hoppy, citrusy flavor hit my taste buds I was hooked. No more cheap beer for me.
I now look at beer differently. I began to appreciate the time, effort and special ingredients required to create a truly well-crafted beer. Today, my go-to beer is still Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, but now in the proper glass.
Recently I have become more involved with the ever growing craft beer industry in Charlotte, NC. I founded a chapter of Girls Pint Out; it is inspiring to see so many craft beer loving ladies in one place. I am constantly learning about the many different styles of beer and love to talk to anyone who shows the same passion. Throughout this exploration I have met many amazing people, many I now call friends.
I discovered my palate is always changing. I love IPAs in the Charlotte summer heat and a great bourbon barrel aged stout in the winter time. This year I have discovered wonderful farmhouse ales that use local ingredients.
