Find me on:

Long gone are the old days of girls shyly sipping on their beers in shame - beer is no longer just for men!  As our society progresses and gender roles dissipate, women are stepping up and discovering a new found love for delicious craft beers.

More women are attending beer festivals like Savor in DC where they pair beers with gourmet foods.

More women are creating recipes and brewing their own beers like fruity wheats and chocolate oatmeal stouts.

They are also taking advantage of them new breweries popping up around the country and tasting new and bold brands.



Beer has tons of uses beyond just enjoying it with friends like the following:

  • Add it to recipes to enhance the flavors of your ingredients
  • Polish your pots and pans
  • Repurpose the bottles into cute juice classes (we'll show you this in an upcoming post)
  • Kill slugs that eat your garden
  • and so many other things.

Stick with us and we'll teach you the ropes about beer. How to properly taste it (just like they do with wine), what to pair them with, the best seasonal beers, which breweries and beer events you should visit when in town and everything else that you like.
