No I’m Not Throwing Away My Growlers

January 16, 2017 2

Recently, I came across an article on Draft Magazine (draftmag.com) that stopped me in my tracks, entitled: “Giving Up the Growler” by Zach Fowle. It struck a nerve with me and of course, I was then compelled to read on. You see,  I use my growlers all the time. All. The. Freakin’. Time. The piece opens with: “This is my Read More

Gender Stereotyping is Very Real in the Beverage Industry

October 27, 2016 1

When I look at the titles of these two books I feel like there is almost no need for me to actually write the rest of this article. But for most, the books probably don’t really hit them as being sexist. Because this particular stereotype has been around for ages. Girls like wine. Boys like beer. It’s just a commonly accepted perspective. But Read More

#LabelLove: Skulls & Skeletons

September 30, 2016 0

Sonora and I may have very different beer style preferences, but one thing we mutually love is HALLOWEEN! Like hardcore. Everything and anything that has to do with halloween – costume parties, horror flicks, decorating, and even craft beer with spooky themes. I completely decorate every space of my home for the holiday. Black cats, spiders, webs, black birds, pumpkins, poison Read More

“It’s hard to believe it’s been 22 years since my very first craft beer.

Chelsie’s Obsession with Beer Labels: #LabelLove

August 16, 2016 0

I enjoy a nice cold one on hot summer days like this. The whole summer season in Pennsylvania has been sweltering to say the least! 90-100 degree days with full out humidity and not much rain in site. At least nothing substantial. Ugh. Is it Fall yet? But what I also enjoy almost equally as much as the refreshing and Read More

Have you seen the newest creation from Victory Brewing Company called Tart Ten? If you love mildly sour ales and All Things Wild, this is the brew for you! Its described as a strong, refreshingly zingy, tart-tingly Belgian Dubbel sour ale fermented with Brettanomyces. “Brettan-O-My-Um-What?” It’s Brettanomyces!
