A Few Thoughts After Visiting Silver City Brewery

August 16, 2016 | 1

Over the past few months, we’ve been lucky enough to get to know the guys and gals of Silver City Brewery. It all started when we were able to sit down over some beers and chat about their 20th Anniversary Celebration – at Chuck’s Hop Shop in Seattle. After a few rounds of beer – learning about their culture, their team, and their Anniversary celebration – we were hooked. Read More

Lucky Envelope Brewing | ENIAC Mosaic IPA

July 29, 2016 |

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.

Women in Beer | Hopped Up on Jewelry

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

Reuben’s Brews | Daily Pale

May 10, 2016 |

It’s an exciting time to be in Seattle. The cold, grey weather is shedding itself – transforming into long, euphoric days of sunshine. The Bumbershoot lineup has been announced, and is looking absolutely superb. The light rail has finally — finally! — expanded to Capital Hill and the University of Washington, giving us all a new opportunity to escape blood boiling traffic. But the best news of all, at least for Emerald City beer lovers, is that Seattle Beer Week is kicking off on May 12 for ten sweet days of celebration, experimentation and collaboration.

Though we have to wait a few more days until Seattle Beer Week is officially underway, Reuben’s Brews has given us a taste of what we can expect from the festival. Literally. And we must say, it’s damn near perfection. Read More

Brewery Showcase | Geaux Brewing (Bellevue, WA)

March 21, 2016 |
