thebeerwench Super latergram from the EPIC @21stamendment grand opening party this weekend. In my mug: Toaster Pastry—an India Red Ale that 21A designed as a tribute to Kellogg, whose old factory they now "reside" inside. Not gonna lie, I loved Pop Tarts as a kid—I fucking loved them. But my mom didn't let me have much sugar or artificial flavoring or coloring as a kid, so I rarely got to eat them. Until college, of course, where (like most things) I binged on them. Freshman 15...no, 20.... No, 30? #thankspoptarts #thanksnattylight 20h

thebeerwench Finally got to grab a beer with the super-famous, ever-adorable, insta-beer-celebrity @barleythebrewpup. Okay, so I'm technically having beers with his parents... Who are also super awesome and obviously have great taste in beer and food. If you don't follow this pooch, your definitely missing out. Oh yeah, in the glass is @coolbeerwerks "Ghost Mango Session Ale"—just the right blend of malt sweetness and fruitiness with a subtle hint of ghost pepper heat. Mmmmm. Life doesn't suck! 4d

thebeerwench It has been very difficult for me to pay attention to social media today. As much as I love all the photos that all my friends, fans and favorite breweries have been posting of dogs—National dog day is also a painful reminder that I'm about to lose my baby girl on Tuesday. Technically, she's not mine. But she was my stepdaughter for two years. I love her to death and we definitely have developed an emotional bond and love for each other. Mahsie, I'm going to miss you. I hope that our paths cross again. #breakupssuck #singlelife #thepriceoffreedom 6d

thebeerwench Dirty Tater Tots and Dirty Mac & Cheese—what can I say? I like my food like I like my men..... Oh sorry, did I just say that out loud?
Ps: @thevulgarchef, this one's for you.

  •   seanpierceceo Glad I snagged some bottles on my time in Santa Rosa. But that line outside....damn 1w
  •   jpl_bruins Is anyone else buying this 'limited supply' crap anymore. I love Pliny, it's one of favorite brews, but come on all ready! All of my local bars in the City have Pliny on tap everyday, all day! Lagunitas, Bear Valley and all other breweries can manage to craft a sufficient supply, so why not Russian River?! 6d

thebeerwench It's pretty rare these days to find whole chicken wings on a menu (aka wings still attached to the drummies). Was a big fan of these bad boys. Lots of meat on the bone, skin hds a great crisp, and the buffalo sauce was on point. Could definitely take down multiple orders of them. #wingaddict #wingconnoisseur #ihateranchdressingfyi 2w

thebeerwench This it what my #IPAday looked like last night—four gourmet sliders paired four @greenflashbeer IPAs. On the far left, ahi tuna slider on a bed of spinach with wasabi cream and pickled ginger. Next up, brown sugar pork chop slider topped with pulled pork and house cured maple bacon. Third, we have a Kobe beef slider topped with BOURBON-SOAKED FOIE GRAS and apple cranberry chutney. Last but not least, slow braised short rib slider with a blackberry demi-glacé and horseradish cream sauce. Holy hell, best sliders I've ever had! 4w

thebeerwench I've got 99 problems, but starting #IPAday is definitely not one. Who would have thought that a little punk beer geek like me could inspire such a huge international #craftbeer movement? But, in all seriousness, I did not do this alone. #IPAday took a small village—perhaps a small army—of craft breweries, beer bloggers and beer enthusiasts to happen. Big thanks to all the OGs that believed and stood behind my crazy idea from the beginning—you know who are. And huge thanks to everyone else who has celebrated with us along the way. Today, #IPAday was the #1 trending hashtag (on and off the entire day) on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. Because of all of you, millions of people across the world have become more aware about the craft beer movement. And you all should give yourselves a huge pat on the back. This IPA is for all of you, cheers!!! 4w

thebeerwench THIS is how you do lunch on #IPAday. Spicy tuna roll paired with West Coast IPA. Might seem like a bold choice—but it truly works. The fatty richness of the tuna and spicy mayo sauce really stands up to the bold and aggressive hop flavors of West Coast IPA. The ever-building burn of chile heat is nicely soothed away with every sip. #BOOM #thereitis 4w
