BrewDog’s Beer Geek Awards winner!

This summer I entered this photo of Jayson brewing his Sierra Nevada clone from Brewhound, in BrewDog’s Beer Geek Awards (US). And I won! In September, Jayson and I will be going to the Great American Beer Festival in Denver. We’ll only be there for one day but I’m so excited and honored that my…

Update! 2018

I haven’t been here in a while. My first beer, Oatmeal Milk Stout turned out great, Jayson was a big fan. He made his beer, a Sierra Nevada clone the next week. I made sure to get some photos of him brewing since I got some of my first brew. We haven’t brewed that much…

Let There Be Beer!

We procrastinated and didn’t  get a mead started in time to have anything ready by Thanksgiving or Christmas (either for gifts or just to share) so I suggested we make a couple of beers. Jayson has made a few before, that’s what got him into this hobby 6 or 7 years ago, but I have…

Home Brew Update

The cyser flopped. I’m not positive what went wrong, but it happened early on. It was a first attempt and we will definitely try again. Jayson has brewed at least one beer since I last posted. He did an Amber ale and a Hefeweizen. The Amber is gone, it was a huge hit with our…

So I Married a Beer Snob – Sam Adams Nitro White Ale

Let me do a brief introduction here. My husband is a beer snob and I always try his beers, even though 99.99% of the time I just end up making a very funny face. When we were on our honeymoon I made a ridiculous critique of Guinness, and we joked that I should start a…
