Wayfinder x Breakside Definitley Not IPA + man hands. My man's hands. #beer #beerstagram #instabeer #manhands #breaksidebrewery #wayfinder #collaboration #craftbeer #mybeeryear #ipa #portland

It's a hopping Friday night at Wayfinder Beer, one of Portland's newest breweries. Even so, there are plenty of date-night nooks, swoon-worthy German beers, and tasty smoked things like ribs and sausages. Loved this place. #wayfinder #oregonbeer #pdxeats #pdx #datenight #portlandoregon #mybeeryear #craftbeer #beer #beerpairing #instabeer #pub

Thanks @imbibe for featuring me and my new book!
Imbibe contributor @lucyburningham's newest book My Beer Year (officially out on 10/25) chronicles the road to becoming a certified cicerone, and it's such a fun and interesting read. Over at, we chat with Lucy about how the book came to be and what she learned along the wayβ€”on the homepage now! πŸ“·: Anna Caitlin Photography #craftbeer #mybeeryear #imbibe #imbibegram

I love my writer's group. Not only did they help me get ready for my upcoming readings of My Beer Year, but my friend Greg brought me some hop props for show and smell! L.A., I'll see you next week. I'll be at at Pages Bookstore in Manhattan Beach on Friday, October 28, 7pm. #craftbeer #beerstagram #mybeeryear #hops #bookstagram #mywriting #writersofinstagram #instabook #books

Can you tell which way the wind's blowing using Red Vines? Nope, but you can look cute trying. #oregon #pnw

On a strict diet of power pellets and fruit this rainy afternoon. πŸ’πŸ“πŸŠπŸŽπŸπŸŒ

Impressed by every beer I tasted at @blackprojectbeer, which makes spontaneously fermented beers that spend time in a coolship. Who knew Denver's terroir was so delicious? #gabf #denver #craftbeer #wildbeer #spontaneous #beer #beerstagram #instabeer #mybeeryear
