How did your interest in craft beer begin?
I am really lucky to have been born and raised in beautiful sunny San Diego. Since San Diego County is known as the “The Craft Beer Capital of America” my interest in craft beer started pretty much started the minute I was allowed to start drinking. Breweries such as Stone, Ballast Point, and Karl Strauss were always on tap at concerts and events near me so I quickly developed a taste for quality beer.
What are your favorite and least favorite beer styles?
My go-to is a nice refreshing IPA, West Coast or Hazy I like them all. I have also been enjoying all the yummy sours available lately. My least favorite beer style are wheat beers.
If you could only drink three beers for the rest of your life what would they be?
- Pure Project: Pure West (west cost IPA)
- Belching Beaver: Phantom Bride (IPA)
- Modern Times/Green Cheek Collab: Unbiased Opinion (Nitro Golden Stout)
Tell us about one of your favorite craft beer Instagram accounts.
It’s a tie between @womensbeercollective and @gurl.lost. Both accounts are a good source to find out about new beers and breweries. I love watching their travels and adventures, plus they are both women owned. I think it is very important for women to support other women in this industry.

I know this is going to sound so cliche, but my favorite drinking bud is my fiance. We have been together for almost 7 years now and love drinking beer and traveling…its been a match made in heaven.
