What Would Happen: Brave Creativity
Welcome to the Unfiltered Journeys Podcast! Thanks so much for listening to my little ol’ point of view. This episode touches on why bravery and creative expression are the same and the importance of creativity to personal and societal growth. I’ll also be discussing why I think modern craft beer needs to get back to its bold, innovative and creative ways if it wants to grow and be inclusive. So, grab seat here and join me as I sip on a beer from one of the greats: Sierra Nevada. Founded in Chico, California in the year of my birth 1980, Sierra Nevada is rightfully credited as the bastion of American Craft Beer. Their flagship Sierra Nevada Pale Ale is the first of its kind and spawned decades of copies and derivatives. And ultimately thousands of breweries worldwide. If you’re looking for a beer that’s refreshing, hoppy and has a firm bitterness then the Sierra Nevada 40th Hoppy Anniversary Ale is the one for you. With a sturdy 65 IBU and 6.0% ABV, this beer is a tribute to the West Coast IPA. Notes of pine and citrus and a subtle yet present caramel sweetness evoke memories of American IPAs from the good ol’ days. Alright, enough talking about it, it’s time to keep celebrating my birthday. Grab your beer and let’s celebrate because it’s time to tap the Unfiltered Journeys Podcast! 00:42 Beer Introduction06:02 My New Hobby!08:34 The Importance of Creativity10:07 The Brave Ones11:27 The Great Irony13:11 Oppression is Anti-Evolutionary14:37 A Brief History of American Craft Beer18:34 Know Your Role, Stay in Your Lane20:47 Beer Has Devolved into Its Own Tribe22:40 Where's the Bravery?24:02 Let's Do A Challenge!

I Drink Alone: I'm Turning 40!
Welcome to the Unfiltered Journeys Podcast! Thanks so much for joining me for a chat. This episode celebrates my birthday month—that’s right a whole month—and my milestone birthday: I’m turning 40! I’ll be discussing why I think 40-something women feel invisible and what’s awesome about entering the 4th decade. I’ll also be discussing why I think the beer industry should stop ignoring me. So, grab seat here and join me as I sip on a beer from one of my favorite breweries: The Kernel. Founded in 2009 in London’s Bermondsey district, The Kernel is widely considered the brewery who started the craft-brewing renaissance in the UK. Inspired by the bold flavors characteristic of American craft beer, it’s no exaggeration when it’s stated that The Kernel put British craft beer on the map and spurred generations of new breweries in the city. But the brand accepts this crown reluctantly, instead carrying on quietly with a humble confidence by churning out great beer after great beer with nary a word on social media and a distinctly simple brand presence to boot. If you’re looking for a beer that’s exceptionally clean and balanced but with a flavor profile that defies its low ABV, then The Kernel’s Table Beer is the one for you. Coming in at 2.8% with a distinct citrus and pine character, it’s hard to find a better lunchtime beer. Alright, enough talking about it, it’s time to get the party started. Grab your beer and let’s celebrate because it’s time to tap the Unfiltered Journeys Podcast! 00:43 Beer Introduction06:07 What's Been Bugging Me08:24 Being a Cusper10:28 What 40-Something Women Do To Ourselves12:06 What the 20-Somethings Think About Us15:37 The 40's Milestone16:47 What Our Milestone Means18:27 I Don't Fit In

Happy Days: A State of Being
Welcome to the Unfiltered Journeys Podcast! Thanks so much for joining me in my little world. This episode goes a bit deeper into an ancient philosophy and how I’m using it to further simplify my life and create meaningful happiness today. I’ll also be discussing what I think the source of motivation is and how being in tune with how we feel is the best way to find passion, peace and joy. So, grab seat here and join me as I sip on a beer from one of my all-time favorite breweries: Dogfish Head. There’s not much I can say about Dogfish Head to do it justice. It was founded in 1995 in Delaware by Sam and Mariah Calagione as America’s smallest brewpub. And they’ve since become one of the elite players in American craft beer. Motivated by non-conformity and experimentation, Dogfish Head is known for their “off-centered ales for off-centered people,” often incorporating weird ingredients and interesting concoctions into their beers. The plan has worked as the company has grown not only to include a distillery, restaurants and the Dogfish Inn but it is also one of the most charitable breweries in the industry. If you’re looking for a beer that’s both hoppy and malty at the same time, with a bit of heft to the body, then my favorite beer in the whole wide world is the one for you: Indian Brown Ale. It’s said that it’s a hybrid of a Scotch Ale, an IPA and an American Brown but all we really need to know is that the caramel-y sweet character and bold bitter finish is delicious. Alright, enough talking about it, it’s time to get all philosophical.

Give It Up: Go With The Flow
Welcome to the Unfiltered Journeys Podcast! Thanks so much for listening today. This episode is about something I’m trying really hard to master. Or wait, I’m not trying hard at all: Give it up and go with the flow. I’ll be talking about how overthink keeps me stuck and why I need to vibe instead. I’ll also be discussing the first step to finding my flow and the things that will make sure it’ll never happen if I don’t fix them. So, grab seat here and join me as I sip on a beer from an exciting local-to-me brewery that’s just simply doing what they do and making great beer: Mainz’s Schwarze Rose Craft Beer. Founded in early 2019 by accomplished homebrewers and friends—three Simons and a Daniel—their fantastic recipes are brewed for them at another one of Mainz’s established breweries: Kuehn Kunz Rosen (Or KKR for me because those words are hard to say.) Despite being newcomers to the game with day jobs, Schwarze Rose has been making a name for themselves all over the country with their hop-forward and/or sour creations as well as interesting experimentals.If you’re looking for a beer that’s easy to drink but still a bit dynamic then their Go With The Flow Pale Ale is the one for you. This 5.2% stunner has the body of a Pale Ale with that extra juiciness you’d expect from the famous/infamous New England variations. It’s at once mellow and lively with a nice, smooth body. As with most of their beers, this is brewed in a small batch so get it while you can: don’t go with the flow too much or you’ll miss out! Alright, enough talking about it, it’s time to go with the flow. Grab your beer and let’s vibe because it’s time to tap the Unfiltered Journeys Podcast!00:46 Beer Introduction06:35 K.I.S.S.

Go Your Own Way: Nobody Cares About Me
Welcome to the Unfiltered Journeys Podcast! Thanks so much for hanging with me. This episode is about a realization that is important to my independence and growth: nobody cares about me. I’ll be talking about how I know nobody cares, why especially women need to take care of themselves first and the shitty thing that a brewery did to me that helped me realize all of this. I’ll also be discussing the things I do in my own head to remind myself that nobody cares all in the name of freeing myself from the expectations of others. So, grab seat here and join me as I sip on a beer from a brewery that says that collaboration, community and giving back is at the core of their business: Northern Monk Brew Co. Founded in Leeds, UK in 2013, the brand got its start as a contract brewery before finally settling in to its premises at the Old Flax Store in Leeds in 2014. By portraying its image as a brewery with monastic brewing values, the brewery has gone from strength to strength and grown into a second premises which allows for more brewing capacity of their core range beers and other collaboration projects over the two sites. If you’re looking for a beer that’s balanced, drinkable and leaves just a little bit of a bitter taste in your mouth then their Heathen New England IPA is the one for you. This 7.2% beer features juicy tropical fruit flavors and a bit of resin and if there are any flaws, it sure is good at hiding them. This beer is one of their year-round core range beers, is actually really quite nice and does a good job at hiding its strength. Beyond that you can drink it if you want to because what you drink is none of my business. Alright, enough talking about it, it’s time to not care. Grab your beer and let’s go chill because it’s time to tap the Unfiltered Journeys Podcast! 00:49 Beer Introduction03:47 Ugh.

Man Behind the Curtain: Minding My Own Business
Welcome to the Unfiltered Journeys Podcast! Thanks so much for clicking play. This episode is about something I find really important to practice: minding my own business. I’ll be talking about breweries who “sell out”, what minding my own business really means to me and why freedom and judgement can’t co-exist. I’ll also be discussing the things I do in my own head to mind my own business all in the name of living a simpler life. So, grab seat here and join me as I sip on a beer from a brewery that has had to face their own share of criticism and judgment: Oedipus Brewing. Located in Amsterdam, Oedipus got its start when the four founders started homebrewing in their kitchens. With a passion for creating and experimenting, Oedipus quickly refined their beers and brought their quirky style from festival to festival before finally settling into, what is now, their taproom premises in 2015. As fate would have it, big beer took notice and Heineken bought a minority stake in the business in June 2019. While criticism quickly followed the announcement, the brewery has grown its team and its kit and the beer has retained its quirky yet progressive standard. If you’re looking for a beer that’s a refreshing warm-weather beer with a bit of tartness, then their Polyamorie Mango Sour Ale is the one for you. This 5% beauty is a cross between a Berliner Weisse and an American Pale Ale, I love the mix of tart and bitter alongside the hint of mango and bright tropical fruit flavors. This beer is one of their year-round core range beers and I’ve got to say, it’s like sunshine in a bottle. You can drink it in the sun or even when you’re wishing you had some. Alright, enough talking about it, it’s time to get down to business. Grab your beer and let’s go chill because it’s time to tap the Unfiltered Journeys Podcast!

K.I.S.S.: Three Tips to a Simple Life
Welcome to the Unfiltered Journeys Podcast! Thanks so much for joining me. This episode is about a mantra near and dear to my heart: keep it simple stupid. I’ll be talking about how I find freedom in simplicity, where I’ve been overcomplicating things and why many entrepreneurs—and people might feel stuck. And a bit of a heads up: I get a little angry in this one! 😬😅I’ll also be revealing the three things I’ve discovered in my life that have distracted me from living the simple, beautiful life I actually want to live. So, grab seat here and join me as I sip on a beer with an amazing story and beautiful simplicity: The Pilsner Urquell Original Pilsner. This beer is one of the most important beers in the beer world: it’s the world’s first blond lager and the grandfather to many other lager styles including those of the Germans and, subsequently, the Americans. It’s been brewed and enjoyed in the style’s namesake city, Pilsn, Czech Republic, since 1842. Not much has changed in the brand and the beer over the years and it stands proudly in its simplicity. That suits today’s topic of how to uncomplicate things and finding happiness through simplifying.If you’re looking for a beer that’s endlessly drinkable, not fussy and can be served with how ever much foam you want, then the Pilsner Urquell Original Pilsner is the one for you. It’s recognizable the world over in its green bottle (which they’ll apparently never give up on.) I enjoy the simple malt profile and spicy, earthy Saaz hops character. When served fresh, there are no distractions in this beer, it’s straightforward yet beautiful and doesn’t try to be anything other than what it is. Alright, enough talking about it—it’s time to toast the simple life.
