Thoughtful Pours

Drafting my thoughts on beer one pint at a time.

My name is Sarah and for almost a year I have been lucky enough to work for a great North Carolina craft brewery as a sales analyst and admin. I have had the opportunity to help in the planning and release of new beer into the market and also beertend for the same brewery on the side. Sometimes I wonder if my job is real life because it doesn’t feel like a job at all!

I’ve always had a knack for writing. There’s something about it that is so satisfying that I’ve decided to take my thirst (pun intended) for learning all things beer and put it out there in the world. One thing I’ve noticed is the beer blog market is saturated with blogs that simply tell you how great this beer is or how cool that brewery is, but not many seem to tap into the history and science of what makes this delicious concoction. My mission is to inspire curiosity and a thirst for beer knowledge!

Originally from central New York, my adorable sidekick Mack and I have called Charlotte, NC home for a little over 2 years now. Between the Queen City and Asheville, NC close by, there’s no end in sight to the amount of artfully crafted beers I have access to! So, follow me as I explore all the wonderful and different facets of beer. From history to styles, hop strains to chemistry, and of course my take on the brews I try, I plan on diving in head first. Hopefully we’ll both learn a little something along the way and our love for beer will grow that much more!

Cheers to beer,

Sarah (and Mack!)
