Meet the Blogger
I write what I drink.
Sometimes it's reviews of breweries across the country; sometimes it's a commentary the way beer is produced, styled, and imbibed.
I started my brew-education during college in Eugene OR with the help of my hop-headed roommates Brandy Rodtsbrooks and Amy Gurzick. Living in Eugene gave me access to Rogue Ales and Eugene City Brewery, plus a wide-range of craft beers from many of the eccentric bottle shops in town. During my reign in Eugene, both Ninkasi Brewing and Oakshire Brewing opened, giving me a very joyous last few years in Track Town USA.
After my time in Eugene, I headed north to the big city, Beervana, Ptown, Beertown, Portlandia. Portland has 37 breweries in the metro city-limits, more than any other city IN THE WORLD. Needless to say, my time in Portland was a lot of fun.
Since my awakening to the wonder of craft breweries, I made a point to seek them out wherever I traveled. However my beer travel writing really came to life when I met my husband Jonah. Together we've explored Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho, Wyoming, Colorado, and working on Alaska. Alaska is where we're stationed now: Cordova AK to be exact.
I have a lot of ideas for this site and I'm glad you'd like to come along for the journey. Cheers!
