I didn’t know I needed this in my life!
I love good beer and enjoy a full range of brews—especially craft brews! So much fun and learning to be had! I appreciate the playful banter between the girls and wish I could enjoy a brew with them in person. Cheers!
Beer & Podcasting
Both require good chemistry to make something truly good, and these ladies have it. Find out what their drinking before hand and drink along. See if you taste what they taste.
As a lady getting into the hobby of craft beer, it’s so nice listening to two smart ladies learning and enjoying beer as much as I do. It’s obvious that they enjoy different styles than I do. I think the north vs. south (I’m from Texas) are obvious. I’d be more into stouts if it wasn’t hot as hades here 1/2 the time. Love sing a long times. Just lovely to smile and laugh along to their show.
