Thirsty Post: Recent Charlotte Experiences

(Image appropriated via Google and is by Brian Young) My little sister and her fiance live in Charlotte these days. Earlier in the fall, we spent a lot of time up there. I finally got to see Apocalyptica in person. That was fantastic. 10/10 would do again. We also went to our first Carolina Panthers … Continue reading Thirsty Post: Recent Charlotte Experiences

Thirsty Thursday: SNAFU Brewing

I mentioned previously that Miles and I recently bought a house. It's in a different area of town than we lived previously, so we're getting used to finding places to go, where the best happy hour deals are, where the best food is, and all that good stuff. Our previous area of town was very … Continue reading Thirsty Thursday: SNAFU Brewing

Thirsty Post: Untappd

Some of you may already know about this app. If so, you should share you username with me if I don't have you as a friend. For everyone else, Untappd is the handy app I use when I'm trying new beers. It's essentially a beer journal in app form. I learned about this app from … Continue reading Thirsty Post: Untappd

Thirsty Post: Two Cocktail Bars in Charleston

In case you missed it, it's summer in the Lowcountry. It's July, after all. This is the time of year where even the cool parts of the day leave you drenched because the humidity is like a wet, stifling, warm blanket that smothers you from head to toe. So, it's lovely. (No, not really.) That … Continue reading Thirsty Post: Two Cocktail Bars in Charleston

Thirsty Thursday: Strawberry and Basil Lemonade with Bourbon

If you’re friends with me on Facebook or Instagram, you may have noticed my post earlier. One picture was last night’s dinner and the other was bunch of sliced strawberries. Now for the (maybe not very) grand reveal of what I was slicing strawberries for! But first, backstory because backstory is the best. My book … Continue reading Thirsty Thursday: Strawberry and Basil Lemonade with Bourbon

Thirsty Thursday: Starting a Charlotte List

Some of you may know that my little sister recently moved back to Charlotte to live with her fiancé, who will be working in Uptown doing pretentious economic and math-related  things. (Just kidding, I promise I actually like him. But seriously.) So, even though my in-laws live in Mooresville, with my sister and her fiancé … Continue reading Thirsty Thursday: Starting a Charlotte List

Thirsty Thursday: Top Five Goses

Most people who have been with me to breweries lately know that sour beers are my jam right now. They're tart, they're a little sweet, and they're refreshing. Best of all, they're sipping beers. They're beers that you really want to take your time and savor all the flavors. Even though this weekend is going … Continue reading Thirsty Thursday: Top Five Goses

Thirsty Thursday: Four Summer Events (and an Outlier)

One of the things that I really like about Charleston is that there’s always something going on or somewhere new to go. We managed to make it every tap room that was open last year, then five or seven new breweries opened this year with more on the way. It’s challenging to keep up with … Continue reading Thirsty Thursday: Four Summer Events (and an Outlier)

Thirsty Thursday: Trying New Things

It's only March 9th and I've had more things that I don't normally drink than I have had of my normal stuff. Well, kinda. It just feels like it. Rather than promote one thing, I'm just going to talk about the different things I've tried (well, the three different things, anyways). First up, on Sunday, … Continue reading Thirsty Thursday: Trying New Things

Thirsty Thursday: Frothy Beard 2.0

Next Tuesday is Miles's birthday (yes, I'm a month older; yes, we've heard all the jokes; yes, I've made some of those jokes), so, like any person would, I asked him what he wanted to do. He wants to go to Frothy Beard Brewing, which is a brewery that has taken one of the top … Continue reading Thirsty Thursday: Frothy Beard 2.0
