Lindsay Snyder

Lindsay is our Wisconsin rep, having shed the sunny slopes of Colorado and rustic streets of Miami University in favor of the land of cheese and beer. She spend her days on the lake, either paddleboarding or building igloos depending on the season. There's little she won't do for a good pale ale, an outdoor concert, and a shoes-optional policy.

One Minute Beer Review | Franziskaner Weissbier

October 27, 2016 | Avg. Reading Time: 1 min

Although owned indirectly by Anheuser-Busch, I would argue that Franziskaner Weissbier still has a place in any beer drinkers repertoire.

Cape Brewing Company | Amber Weiss

September 20, 2016 | Avg. Reading Time: 1 min

In a small coastal town just outside of Cape Town, South Africa, Cape Brewing Company confidently wades into the infant market of African craft beer. While the rest of the continent shifts from homebrewing or no beer at all, to macro brewing (with the help of SABMiller and Heineken), Cape Brewing Company keeps up with the beer market as we know it, with a range of styles and rotating seasonals to keep craft connoisseurs happy.

The Australian Drinking Guide

May 16, 2016 | Avg. Reading Time: 3 min

The northern hemisphere tends to think of Australians as a rambunctious bunch, pounding Fosters and surfing daily amongst massive crocodiles and sneaky jelly fish with one hand flipping shrimp on the barbie. Allow me to squash some of these misconceptions. Firstly, no one drinks Fosters here, and secondly, they’re prawns, not shrimp, and they’re more likely to be in some sort of Asian noodle dish than on a barbie. But you’ll love it here nonetheless. The people, the critters, and the pure vastness of untouched wilderness could keep any wandering soul endlessly entertained. When you do ultimately venture down here, there are a few things you should know about the how, where, when, and what of Aussie drinking culture. We break it all down with the Australian drinking guide.

Wisconsin’s Mobcraft Beer To Appear on Shark Tank

March 7, 2016 |

On a wintery Madison day in 2012, Henry Schwartz and I sat in his basement while he told me of big plans to become a brewer of the people by crowd-sourcing beer recipes. On March 11, 2016, Henry will get … Read More

2 Days, 2 Nights | Enjoying Beer in Perth, Western Australia

February 19, 2016 | 2 Avg. Reading Time: 4 min

You’ve done it, you’ve traveled as far as you can possibly get from the continental United States, to the world’s loneliest city – Perth, Western Australia. Perth is 1,300 mi by land to the closest similarly-sized city – Adelaide (if you want to be nit-picky, Auckland and Honolulu are more remote, but they’re islands, so I’m not counting them). Now that you’ve accomplished this geographic feat, my first advice is to leave. Get out. You didn’t come all this way to marvel at the city center with skyscrapers that remind you of Denver or Seattle or Brussels or any other Western city. Grab a quick 45 minute Uber to the coastal town of Fremantle and begin your Western Australia adventure.

I’m sure your Instagram game is top notch, but what if your hilarious captions were pitted directly against your friends in real time, rather than from the quiet solitary confinement of your iPhone? What if you could get real … Read More

New Zealand Founders | 1981 Pale Ale

January 13, 2016 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

Quietly perched on the north side of the south island of New Zealand, a lesser-known Founders Brewery company sits 8,500 miles from everyone’s favorite Founders out of Grand Rapids, Michigan, and 143 years its senior. As a close disciple of the American Founders, I was implored to experience its far removed Kiwi cousin. With over a century more brewing experience and a reputation that precedes them, I had high expectations.

Cascade Brewery Co | Pale Ale

December 18, 2015 |

When I travel, I have two priorities – try the beer, and learn something new. I managed to do both at the same time on my most recent trip even further down under, to the charming, historic, unknown … Read More

Mornington Peninsula Brewery | Porter

November 2, 2015 |

The spectrum of sudsy options in Australia quite often ranges from a crisp apple cider to a mainstream macro lager. The big names in beer monopolize the tap list and keep the poor Aussies from even knowing what they’re … Read More

Melbourne’s Good Beer Week | Drinking in Style Down Under

June 4, 2015 |

What Melbourne, Australia lacks in flip flop weather and surfable waves, it makes up for in a revolving door of cultural stimulation. Living in Melbourne means access to month-long comedy festivals, pop-up croquet clubs (a clever disguise for a place … Read More

White Rabbit Brewery | Dark Ale

March 20, 2015 | Avg. Reading Time: 1 min

ABV: 4.9% | IBU: 27

Australia is in many ways a few steps behind the U.S. Weed legalization, even for medicinal purposes, is a foreign concept, clotheslines and sunshine are preferred over dryers, and chunky heeled shoes straight out of Clarissa Explains it All litter the streets. I worried that beer quality would follow suit. I pictured a land where the craft beer movement had not infiltrated, and the macro beers of the 90’s flowed freely, just at much higher prices. I was right about the prices ($11 for a pint?!), but I was wrong about the beer. Although Melbourne sits at the base of some of the most celebrated wine country in the world, amongst the bountiful grapes I have discovered many spunky little craft breweries busy quenching the thirst of Aussie hop heads like myself.

Kettle Green Brewing Co | Holy Grale Hemp Ale

January 30, 2015 | Avg. Reading Time: 1 min

When I moved to Australia earlier this month, people warned me that the Land Down Under lags behind the rest of the world in almost every way, including beer. I was afraid I would reach for a pint after my long voyage and find only vintage old style lagers prevailing. Instead, what I’ve found is actually a budding craft beer culture that hasn’t yet gone hop-crazy and therefore fits my palate perfectly. Read More

Rogue | Voodoo Doughnut Pretzel, Raspberry, & Chocolate Ale

December 9, 2014 | 1

My boyfriend returned from a weekend in Portland slightly scruffier than when he left and toting a large pink bottle of voodoo. Two of Portland’s most beloved brands, Voodoo Doughnut and Rogue Ales, had teamed up to create a curious concoction, … Read More

Miller Lite | Miller Brewing Company

In honor of the recently concluded Great American Beer Festival, I wanted to shine a spotlight on the Wisconsin brews that did our state proud while the world was watching. There were many to choose from – we … Read More

New Glarus Brewing Co | Moon Man No Coast Pale Ale

September 12, 2014 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

As a self-imposed Sconnie, I’ve signed up to endure perennial misery each year between November and May. Every fall I watch in horror as the sun sets earlier and earlier, the nights get frostier, and the boat-dotted lakes become empty canvases awaiting a frosty fate. That’s why today, when it could very easily be the last 80 degree day before hibernation begins, I opted out of the office lifestyle and escaped via kayak with my two best friends. One is called Justin – he makes an excellent porch drinking companion. The other is called Moon Man – he makes for excellent drinking. Read More

Tours: Sundays at 12:00pm, 1:00pm, 2:00pm and 3:00pm

The west coast of Michigan is littered with hearty little beach towns that endure lake effect snow in the winter and hoards of Chicago tourists in the summer. One such town gets extra attention for its namesake brewery, New Holland Brewing. Nestled among ice cream stores and clothing boutiques, this brewery packs an unexpected punch in the form of creative crafts and homemade spirits made onsite. Read More

Finnegans Charitable Beer Company | Drink Beer & Do Good

July 3, 2014 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

In my experience, reasons to drink a beer can vary widely: it’s your birthday, it’s someone else’s birthday, it’s sunny out, it’s rainy out, you had a good day, you had a bad day, there’s beer in the fridge, and so on. I’m happy to announce that new to this list, thanks to Finnegans of Minnesotta, is that you want to help feed the hungry. Read More

Half Acre Beer Company | Inspiring the Brewer in You

May 28, 2014 | Avg. Reading Time: 2 min

“Our mission is to make a beer you can sit down with your buddies and feel good about.” As soon as I stepped into the bustling warehouse that this Chicago-based crew playfully refers to as SS Half Acre, led by the captain himself decreeing his mission, I knew I was going to like this place. If you’re ever in Chicago on a Saturday, this brewery tour is worth the wait. Read More
