Lucky Envelope Brewing | ENIAC Mosaic IPAJuly 29, 2016 | Hannah Carlson
When I think about my favorite places in all of Seattle, my mind doesn’t immediately wander to the the stereotypical Space Needle, the majestic Kerry Park, the cozy Volunteer Park Cafe, or the bustling Trader Joes in the University District (though I do frequent that quite regularly). No – even though these places, and countless others, are near and dear to my heart in the Emerald City, some of my fondest memories, instead, take place on the busy Leary Way strip.

One day while perusing social media, I came across a post by Deschutes Brewery promoting beer-themed jewelry for women. It’s the first time I had ever come across anything beer related that was exclusively made for women (how many ‘unisex’ beer shirts are in your drawer)? I immediately went to the website for Hopped Up on Jewelry and made my first purchase, a pair of steel hop earrings with my birthstone.
A few months later Kimberly Markley, the creative genius behind the unique business, happened to be passing through Austin and reached out to me about delivering a necklace that I purchased in person. After an engaging meeting at a local coffee shop, I knew that her story needed to be told. Read More
