Long time no see, Beer Lovers!
It’s that time of year – the time for New Year’s Resolutions. Did you think of any new goals to shape your 2018? Or maybe one of those resolutions found you. (Yes – I can be thought provoking at times)
I feel that you deserve an explanation for my recent absence. I have been battling with some health issues – which has unearthed some rather difficult feelings – and most importantly – resulted in questioning my relationship with beer.
Are you ready for this…? I promise there is a happy ending.

Hello all my beer-lovers!
I wanted to give a quick update as I have been MIA for quite some time now drinking and living life away from this blog – and while it’s been a wonderful time – I am circling back around to share some of my recent adventures including Portland, ME + Oktoberfest in Munich, Germany + Copenhagen, Denmark and more!
Can’t wait to share my favorite brews, beer travel + budget travel advise, and more!
See you shortly 😉

A few weeks back, my family took an impromptu girls weekend to Ohio. While my family (apart from my father) are much less interested in the beer scene, it did not take much convincing to stop into Quarter Barrel. And we all loved it so much – we went in again and again.

Just half a block from the Jefferson L Train is KCBC – King’s County Brewers Collective. In the heart of Bushwick – a young, lively, artistic section of Brooklyn – KCBC is quickly gaining popularity at just under a year old. (Important Note: They are open Tuesday-Sunday, No Mondays!)
After more than a handful of friends (and beer acquaintances), told me they love KCBC – I decided to pay Bushwick a visit. With rotating food stands, Drink & Draw, Crowlers, Growlers, flights and board games – there is always something new to try at KCBC. The three brewers/owners put a big emphasis on community – which is easily seen by their events, collaborations, and open nature of their space. Follow them on Instagram at @KCBCBeer for updates on new releases and events.

After waiting entirely too long to visit Tired Hands Brewing Company – I left with a hoppy heart and an empty wallet. Just a 2-hour train ride from New York City – Tired Hands is right outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in Ardmore.
Little did I know, they have 2 locations in walking distance of one another – the Fermentaria & Brew Café. You can check out each individual tap list & food menu online for your preference – but we decided on the Fermentaria.
Rest assured that no beer was wasted nor left behind for this post – I drank the entire draft list…

This weekend we were blessed with incredibly warm weather for February in New York City – 60 degrees – woohoo! So, of course, I sat indoors on my phone, googling where to get a drink for approximately 20 minutes before I found Tørst – a Danish beer bar in Greenpoint (Tørst directly translates to thirst in case you were curious.)
With Google’s $$$$ – I was slightly nervous to try this spot out – but the beer list quickly calmed my nerves with Grimm, Jack’s Abbey, Tired Hands, and Evil Twin – just to name a few.

To escape the caving ceiling in my apartment last week, I hopped on the Bolt Bus for a weekend trip to Boston. My dad has been raving about Jack’s Abby for a while now – so we decided to drop by the beer hall in Framingham, MA.
Side Note: Daughters – if you want a stronger relationship with your sports-loving, beer drinking father – try taking Dad to a brewery. This tends to work best when you at 21+ 😉

Brewing Beauty came to me on a less than luxurious 4.5 hour Megabus ride from New York City to Boston. As I racked my brain for a new personal project that would incorporate imagery and writing, I had the original idea of creating a blog. I know – so innovative and aggresively millennial of me.
A female’s perspective on beer may only be slightly more fresh – but my interest in beer seems to constantly suprise the people around me. I hope to share some of my favorite beers & breweries, best names & logos & labels, and even some recipes & food pairings.
As much as I hope others will enjoy – this blog is intended as a creative outlet for myself – since I am a self obsessed millennial of course 😉
Thoughts? Suggestions? I’d love to hear from you! Leave a comment 🙂
