An adorbs little taster of @firestonewalker Bretta Rose, a Berliner Weisse aged in French oak with raspberries. I mentioned this beer in #mybeeryear, yes I did. Also, I’m thanksgiving-week grateful for @saravezapdx, the best beer bar this side of anywhere.

Thanks to everyone who came to my reading last night @finaldrafttaphouse! And thank you to Kimberly (@abvgirl) and her partner, Mike, for bringing me into their magical beer + storytelling world. Such an honor.

Tonight! Come to my reading and book signing at @finaldrafttaphouse in Vancouver at 6:30pm. We’re going to talk hops and how to evaluate beer like a pro. Disclaimer: @johnharris44 has nothing to do with this event, but I just love this photo.

What a magical dinner @tournantpdx last night! Such a pleasure to be at the table with Cortney of @wyldbread, a new bakery in PDX. Her bread! These cookies! I’m a super fan.

Spent the afternoon drinking beers inspired by art @portlandartmuseum. This lovely Berliner Weiss by @greatnotionpdx is an interpretation of a painting by Charles McKim of Sauvie Island. It was made with lots o berries, because, berry picking. Congrats on another great event, @ericmsteen!

A lot of people complain about having to cross Portland’s bridges. But I love it. 🚲❤️

Seven years ago today, this wonderful human was born, and I’m so proud to be his mama. Keep on being your sweet, kind and curious self, Oscar! 💞

October just keeps bringing the magic. 🍂🍁✨
