Sierra Nevada: A Prost Post


Over a hundred beer bloggers’ jaws dropped as we rolled up to Sierra Nevada’s new production facility in Asheville, N.C. The size of the production facility alone left me speechless, let alone the 90 beautiful acres that enveloped it. Nothing could have prepared me for what I was about to see, learn, and experience in the next few hours while touring Sierra Nevada, Asheville.

Dogfish Head Inn


I jumped head first into the enticing, endless world of craft beers over a decade ago, and I have Dogfish Head brews to thank for it. I’ll never forget the moment when I tasted the bitter, robust flavor of their infamous 60 Minute IPA. It had me spellbound, completely smitten. Beer can taste like this? There are more beers like this?! Yep. I was a goner; hook, line and sinker. There was no turning back after that. And it turns out that my curiosity only grew the further I looked into this hop-forward world of fermented beverages…

Yes we CAN


East End Brewing Co. sure does have a can-do attitude. On June 3rd, East End contracted We Can Mobile Canning of Danville, Pa to facilitate the canning of 20 barrels of Big Hop, East End’s flagship IPA.

Rogue Voodoo Doughnut Cake


When life gives you lemons……combine them with beer and bake into a cake that resembles a giant doughnut, or something like that. I can never keep those old-school sayings straight. But these bright pink Rogue bottles have been intriguing me for the last couple of months. They stick out like a sore thumb next to the endless array of brown bottles. My curiosity finally got the best of me; and there I was in line at the grocery store, buying a bright pink bomber bottle of beer. Well, I guess I’ve had stranger days…

A Taste of Tuscany at Sarafino’s Restaurant


When it comes to Italians, food is love. Perfect, delicious, palatable love. And it’s the kind of love that usually comes in the form of hearty, multi-course meals spanning over several hours. With plenty of wine to go around, of course. Dining is at the heart of Italian culture. They take their time to eat; enjoying their company and fostering the endless conversations that pop up along the way. These Scotch-Irishers right here had the amazing opportunity to savor this old-world dining style last week at Sarafino’s Restaurant.

Brew-tiful Cheesecake


During the dizzying weeks of March Madness, For The Win attempted to determine which of the over 4,500 craft breweries in America is the greatest. So they put together a craft brewery bracket and left the victor’s fate up to ‘Merica’s craft beer super fans. They started with 32 breweries, based on popularity, expert ratings, and personal experience. After 5 grueling matches against hefty opponents such as The Alchemist, Dogfish Head, Victory, Terrapin, and Founders; Southern Tier Brewing Co. reined supreme and claimed the number one spot in the 2015 Ultimate Craft Beer Bracket Championship.

The Finest of Dining at Nemacolin


2015 has been a year of many firsts, including our first Pittsburgh Blog Swap. And we are the lucky bloggers to guest write for the awesome blog Beezus KiddoAs I was perusing the site, I noticed that one of her 40 before 40 bucket list activities included a weekend stay at Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. Well, it just so happens that my husband and I loooove Nemacolin, and we’ll take any excuse to get back there.

Beer Peeps


It’s Easter, for Peeps® sake! A very Hoppy Easter to you and your family! This year, we remixed an Easter staple to include our favorite drink: BEER! These boozed up homemade marshmallow treats are made with Penn Brewery’s Ginger Beer. The ginger beer was our obvious go-to because we love the flavor profile of ginger, especially when it’s in candied form. So make these for some-bunny verrry special. Or keep them for yourself when you’re having a bad hare day… We hope you enjoy this peeps offering…Okay, I’ll stop it.
