Welcome to The Girl and her Beer! Am I an expert? Not at all. Do I love beer? Yes. I’m just a girl with a deep appreciation for beer. I do not limit myself to craft beers, micro-brews, or specialty barley pop. I drink it all — the good, the bad, the ugly and most importantly, the cheap.
I gained an appreciation for beer early in life. There was nothing like a Blatz, half slush, at break time while working on my grandparents’ farm in Northern Wisconsin in the August heat. As I grew older, I naturally became fond of craft and specialty beers, local or elsewhere. Now residing in Chicago, I am privileged to experience the incredible growth of the craft beer industry that allows me the opportunity to imbibe in some extremely unique, innovative and sought after beer. Most importantly, I enjoy having a hobby that gives me a good buzz.
