Meet Sonora

September 3, 2015 5

Hello fellow beer nerds! My name is Sonora, and I have been a big fan of all things craft beer for several years. For the longest time I didn’t drink beer because the bitterness put me off.

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 Read More

On Being a Craft Beer Blogger and 2014

December 17, 2014 2

As I get closer to the end of another fantastic year for Stouts and Stilettos, I’ve been getting a little more introspective and sentimental. It feels like just yesterday that I started blogging, yet it’s been over 3 years.  A lot has changed, yet one thing still remains the same: I absolutely love doing this. I read Bryan Roth’s post about Read More

My adventure into craft beer is a story that happened almost 10 years ago when I was introduced to homebrew and craft beer through a good friend of mine in Pittsburgh. Even though I was still in college, I knew that the cheap beer wasn’t for me and I was thrilled to learn there were many kinds of beer out Read More

Craft Beer and Pregnancy

July 23, 2014 2

So the news has broken… I’m pregnant! With twins! I think the first thing I really thought about when planning to get pregnant was, “How in the world am I going to go a whole 9 months without craft beer?” Well, after lots of research and planning… I don’t have to. That’s right. You can still love craft beer and Read More
