Long time no see, Beer Lovers!
Do you ever feel discouraged by your lack of productivity? (Or is this just a New Yorker thing?) I know I definitely have lately. For the last couple months, all these lovely posts have felt like a whole lot of work — instead of passion. I took a little bit of time to refresh and prioritize, but I’m back 🙂
Anyway, enough of that. Here is my review about Lamplighter Brewing Company in Cambridge, MA (Boston)

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 😉

I’m back from my joyous escape from reality in the beautiful state of Oregon – and while I am happy to be back in Brooklyn, NY – I am still going through major nature withdrawals. Luckily PDX Airport had an awesome craft beer collection, so I flew home with enough Oregon-made alcohol to soften the blow.
My trip west coast was mostly spent in Hood River – a small town about 1 hour from Portland – with some pretty awesome breweries including Full Sail, Double Mountain, and pFriem Family Brewers.
When I finally made it to Portland – one of my favorite cities – I stopped by one of my local loves – Breakside Brewing ❤

Happy Memorial Day Weekend! Who’s ready for one of America’s favorite drinking holiday weekends? In other countries, Memorial Day is often spent in quiet reflection of the soldiers that have fought and died for their country. But in the US – we have outdoor parties and get wasted on cheap, watered down beer 😉
Created just for you – here are 3 Beer Press recipes to impress your friends and up the quality of your beer for all your Memorial Day celebrations.

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…

After scanning a few dozen beer hashtags, looking for new beer accounts to follow on Insta, I came across BoK Apparel. I instantly fell in love with their beer designs, and I purchased the Zombie Hand Crop Top on the spot – I am obsessed. While the masterminds behind the company chose to remain anonymous, they were kind enough to answer a few questions about BoK, beer, Boston, and more. Enjoy, my beer friends!

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+ 😉
