Meet Tierney

yards brewing

My journey into craft beer is a story that can be told in short. First I didn’t like any beer, then I only liked cheap beer until the day I discovered Victory Golden Monkey. I, like many, never knew that beer could have so many flavors. From there I fell in love with hefes, then stouts, and even IPAs. Now the rest is history as I sip, sample, and taste my way through the world of craft beer.

My goal in starting Stouts and Stilettos was simple: to provide a friendly, approachable ground for discussion for women when talking all things beer. While I don’t discriminate against men, women are definitely our target market. I have always thought it was especially important to focus on women as over time we have been forgotten. Marketing works against us, societal norms try to hold us back, and as with many fields deemed to be ‘for men’ it is easy to feel left in the shadows. I hope to make us all men and women feel equal, to encourage women to try craft beer without feeling intimidated, and educate all about beer as a whole.

I hope you join me on my journey from pint to pint as I explore new beers, homebrewing, festivals, bars, brewpubs, and more!

Favorite IPA right now: Elysian Space Dust IPA

    My first non-domestic beer just happened to be Victory Hopdevil so it seems Victory was responsible for both of our beer love! I must say I am still to this day a Golden Monkey fan as well.
