Nature heals me. Always has. Always will.

Remembering how much fun I had creating this zine for @travelportland! It’s international women’s day today, and I’m celebrating by continuing to fight for gender equality in every way I can. I’m also celebrating all the women who continue to love and support me no matter what. I love you all so much. 💞💪🍻

Celebrating past generations of women who fought their fights. And those of us in the beer industry who show up and love every cheers. Here’s to all of you!

PSA: Friday beers taste SO GOOD. 🍻

Some shout outs for the peeps who gave My Beer Year love this week. Big thanks to @davidnilsenbeer for chatting with me about my Cicerone journey for @porchdrinkingco. And @big_hair_dontcare is reaching her goal of reading more and studying for the Cicerone exam by reading my book. Plus! @arborguesthousepdx has both of my books on hand for guests to enjoy. LOVE IT. ❤️🍺❤️

I don’t know what I’ve done to deserve friends who HAND DELIVER @alchemistbeer from Vermont, but I’ll take it! Going to do a hazy side-by-side taste off.

Magical day at the coast. Balmy. Otherworldly. The light is returning.✨

I’m still so proud of this little book. Love seeing smart shoppers like @jbucky1 putting a copy in the cart for their favorite beer + bike lovers!
