How did your interest in craft beer begin?
My interest in craft beer began while I was in college at UNT. I went out to the strip of bars on UNT’s campus (known as Fry St.) and tried the only non-pilsner/lager beer I could find which happened to be a 60-min Dogfish Head beer. I LOVED it. Every time I went out with my friends, I would try to convince them to go to that one specific bar because I knew nowhere else on Fry St. carried a beer like it, haha. They also didn’t understand why I drank it much slower than their Coors lite, haha. Eventually, I wandered over to the Square (off-campus) which is filled with a bunch of craft-beer bars, and basically lived there for the rest of my college years. Ugh, I love Denton and need to go back and visit!
What are your favorite and least favorite beer styles?
Ooh, this is easy. My favorite styles are Hazy TIPA’s, Barleywines, Pastry Stouts, & 0-water Meads! My least favorite styles are Pilsners & Lagers — I just can’t with those light beers, haha.
If you could only drink three beers for the rest of your life, what would they be?
Heavy Hands – SpindleTap, Reckless Precision – Brewlihan, and… Tbh, any Anchorage Barleywine! Mmm, now I’m craving one!
Tell us about one of your favorite craft beer IG accounts.
So, I really really love craft beer IG accounts that are aesthetically pleasing to look at. As a Content Creator & Marketing Manager, that kind of stuff just gets me. Off the top of my head, the two accounts that come to mind are @UrbanSouth_htx & @Tavour. Both accounts are so creative and colorful — I love it!
Tell us about your favorite drinking buddy.
I ONLY GET TO CHOOSE ONE?! haha, JK. I honestly live for beer shares & have such a solid beer friend group here in Austin, Texas, but without a doubt, it would be my boyfriend, Reed (@all_hail_the_haze) & our pup, Maya. We started trading with one another (DAL – SEA) back in 2014 and I actually introduced him to the hazy IPA scene. It was so fun traveling to meet him somewhere specifically to seek out beer. Then one day he booked a one-way flight and the rest is history! 🙂
Tell us two truths and a lie about yourself.
