The old saying that you will always love your first — it’s NOT true! My entry into craft beer proves that. About 16 years ago, the guy I was dating at the time ordered us a Guinness on draft. I remember looking at it and thinking, Wow! This is dark, and look at that creamy head! It was different from what I had been drinking (illegally) with friends at a bonfires, house parties, driving back from the lake, and … well, you get it. This beer, unlike that light yellow fuzzy stuff, had my attention and I wanted more. Guinness was my first, but I’ve moved on over the years, falling in and out of love with several beers.
My love of beer — and introducing it to others — is one of the main reasons I post beer pics via social media. Memphis may not be Asheville or Portland, but the growing scene (four breweries now!) shows we’re still making an impact in the craft beer world. By no means am I an expert. I’m just a girl that knows what she likes and what she wants, a girl that thirsts for every opportunity to learn new things about my favorite drink, and a girl that appreciates every brewer out there for making what she loves. Cheers!
