30 Second Beer Review: The Starrs of Summer

August 14, 2017 0

July disappeared in the blink of an eye. Despite what back-to-school displays and the growing number of pumpkin beers on the shelf may tell you, summer is still here. We have at least another month of warm weather, cookouts, and the pool. Fortunately, Starr Hill has a whole variety of beers for you to choose from – several of which Read More






SAVOR the Second Floor

July 6, 2017 0

Last month, I attended SAVOR at the National Building Museum. Colleen, Tierney, and Chelsie all attended as well, but on Saturday. I went on Friday, since I had plans to rock out to Iron Maiden on Saturday (side note: excellent show). It was a bit odd attending a beer festival by myself, as I usually go with my husband or Read More






120 Second Beer Review: Starr Hill’s 2017 Four Kings Pack

May 24, 2017 0

Starr Hill’s Four Kings variety pack is back for another run. The pack takes a very good beer — their King of Hop Imperial IPA — and gives it three different flavor variants. The variants and original are then packed in a case for your hoppy enjoyment. Last year, Chelsie and I reviewed the 2016 variety pack. This year, Starr Read More






CBC17: Beyond the Conference Walls

May 4, 2017 0

It’s been over two weeks since I attended my first Craft Brewer’s Conference (CBC) with Tierney and Colleen. The conference took place in Washington, D.C., a skip over the river from my home. Many events were held in honor of the conference, and outside of its walls. Bars, breweries, and restaurants opened their doors to attendees and locals alike with Read More






She Said/She Said: Starr Hill Winter Selections

February 27, 2017 0

Winter has but one month left – and even less time than that if you’re in the D.C. area. We’ve had a very mild winter, but even as the cherry blossoms prepare to bloom by St. Patrick’s Day, I still find myself craving a good winter beer. Fortunately, Starr Hill was kind enough to send two of them to myself Read More






The Thirst

February 7, 2017 0

For Valentines Day, each writer was challenged to proclaim their love to their favorite beers. These are their interpretations of the idea. We hope you enjoy! Marissa walked alone on the cobbled streets of Old Town, sighing as her shoes scratched the damp surfaces of the bricks beneath her feet. Winter that year had been particularly cold, with wind chills of Read More






#DrinkForGood and Make Every Beer Count

February 1, 2017 0

Have you ever looked at your empty beer cans or numerous Untappd check-ins and thought, I’d like this to count for something more? Well, it can — and thanks to a good idea spreading across Twitter, it can do so at a rapid rate.   I’ll be donating $1 for every drink I have from now through the end of Read More






Pucks and Pints 2: Hockey Beer for the 2016-17 Season

November 4, 2016 2

Sonora’s 2016-17 Hockey Beer Picks: I’m very excited to be back rink-side watching the Washington Capitals (hopefully) skate to victory. Last year, our Stanley Cup dreams were sadly dashed yet again in Round 2, as we fell to the eventual Cup winners, the Pittsburgh Penguins, in Game 6. But it’s a new year, and so far, the Caps are playing Read More






Banana Brown Ale Pancakes

September 19, 2016 0

One drinking trend that I’m not very keen on is drinking at breakfast or brunch. No disrespect to anyone who enjoys mimosas or a beer brunch. It’s simply not my thing, mostly because drinking makes me sleepy and I just woke up – I want coffee, not alcohol. However, I’ll gladly eat beer for breakfast, and one of my favorite Read More






She Said/She Said: Starr Hill Fall Tour Variety Pack

September 12, 2016 0

  After a long,  hot summer, it seems like Autumn is finally around the corner. Fall is my favorite beer season. In addition to the ubiquitous – and tasty – pumpkin ales and Oktoberfest offerings, I am a big fan of brown ales, fresh hop IPAs, and other offerings that pepper the stores like leaves on the sidewalk. Starr Hill Read More
