Beer Video: Abita’s “Culture on Tap” feat Dr. John 1

It’s always refreshing to see a beer advertisement that is dedicated to showcasing the culture of beer and its spectrum of styles (outside of the typical yellow fizzy mass-produced lagers you see on TV), rather than sell it through the objectification of women or the use of bad puns. Enter Abita Brewing Company‘s latest video […]

Dogfish Head Never Ceases to Amaze: Introducing Positive Contact 2

I’ve said this once, and I’ll say it again. If there is any craft brewery responsible for my career path and my passion, love and obsession with craft beer — it is Dogfish Head. Midas Touch was the beer that officially converted me from a wine professional and beer hobbyist to a full-blown craft beer […]

The Next Great American Brewer: A New Reality Series 17

I apologize to all the Jersey Shore and Housewives fans, but I lack interest in just about every single reality show produced these days. In fact, the only ones that I pay moderate attention to are the food competitions, and even that is few and far between (too much drama). Well, that was until now. […]

Valentine’s Day Beer Pairings 1

Those of your who follow me on Twitter are probably aware of my infatuation and preoccupation with Whole Foods Market. What can I say? As a daughter of an environmentalist and health food nut, I grew up supporting local agriculture and companies dedicated to producing ethical and healthy products. I was taught how to read […]

The Beer Wench Featured on NEW BREW THURSDAY 4

I hate to play favorites in the blogosphere. I would love to use the analogy of “Mama Wench” and say that picking a favorite blogger is like picking a favorite child — I love each and every one of them in their own special ways. But that just sounds creepy. Especially since 1. I am […]

Interview With Sam Calagione 11

Those of you who live under a rock or on Mars may not be aware of my Dogfish Head obsession. Well have no fear, because I am more than happy to elaborate on it. In many ways, I attribute my passion for craft beers to Dogfish Head. Dogfish Head is indirectly responsible for my becoming a […]



ORVAL Vertical Tasting 6

Recently, I was given a rare opportunity to taste a vertical of ORVAL vintages. The 3 different vintages included: April 2009 –> 5 months old May 2007 –> 1 year nine months old October 2002 –> 7 years old The 7 year Orval was probably the “oldest” beer that I’ve tasted. I found it rather […]

Blue Palms Brewhouse Interview 3

Those of you (poor and unfortunate souls) that have made some sort of interaction with me — whether it be in real life or on Twitter — know that The Wench is head over heels in love with The Ohio State University. And I’m not the only beer geek with an Ohio State football obsession. […]



Uncle Billy’s Brew & Que Tour 3

At the end of August, a good friend and I embarked upon the cross country road trip of a lifetime. The road trip had multiple purposes — 1. it was my big move from Florida to California (my whole life actually fit into a Dodge Neon = ridiculous) 2. it was the preliminary launch of […]
