Summer seasonal bottle release at Jackie O’s. Tasty beers on tap make this one of my favorite events on the craft beer calendar.

Glad I could pick up another @thebruery Sour in the Rye on Kumquats while visiting the tasting room in LA. @epicfaul loved this beer!

Parabajava: Firestone Walker Parabola w/intelligentsia coffee is a hugely coffee forward stout with big time drinkability.

A sour beer aged on oak with blueberries, yes please. One of my favorite fruit based sours of all time. from The Bruery.                           9.5/10

Cop Out
I have not forsaken thee, blog!
Anyone who knows me or possesses eyesight knows I’m *obsessed* with color. There is no limit to this love affair. Clothes? Obvs. Makeup? Of course. Food & drink? Bring on the sour gummy worms and blue Hawaiians.
So it should come as a surprise to exactly no one that I felt the need to change up the hair hue. As much as I desperately wanted to do this:

I decided the obligations of appearing professional, coupled with my ever increasing age would not allow it (these 2 factors are already pretty forgiving when you factor in my existing facial piercing).
So my stylist Geoff and I came up with a compromise: copper. He was nervous to pull the trigger on anything so dramatic, so we actually had to highlight it twice in 2 sessions; the first time it blended too much with my natural color. By the time he’d finished the second run, not only were his nerves calmed, he was already plotting to add more rouge to my ‘do the next time around.
The verdict? I’m enjoying it as a healthy blend of edgy and acceptable. The feedback I’ve gotten from others reflects this: half the people I see have raved about this new color addition; the other half don’t even notice it’s there. Or maybe they’re just too afraid to tell me they hate it. I do look pretty badass now.

Sour beer fans take heed: This is the fashionable face of a woman who will gladly drink-up the most puckering wild ales. And look good doing it.
