Pacific Northwest Beer Chick

Breweries, Beers & Good Times

About me and my blog. October 24, 2010

Welcome to my blog!

Let me just start off by saying that I am in no way a professional beer critic or expert. I’m just a chick who likes beer…good beer. I enjoy a good pub where a pint is a relaxing and enjoyable experience.
My first “real beer” was in 1994. My ex-husband Scott (at that time boyfriend) took me out on our first date. I ordered a Zima and thought he was going to end the date right then and there. He gave me a sip of his Anchor Steam and I was hooked. From that moment on I have enjoyed beers from literally all over the world and to this day can’t believe what I was missing before I tried that first craft beer.
In 2007, Scott & I moved from our native Southern California to Western Washington State. We were BLOWN AWAY by the amazing beer culture that exists in the Pacific Northwest! Sure, we had a few craft breweries in So Cal, and there are some bars and pubs back home that serve a few craft brews and imports, but the beer culture in So Cal pales in comparison to this part of the country. I love the level of support people in the “PNW” (Pacific Northwest) have for not just their local breweries, but for good beer in general and I’m proud to say I’m a part of it.
I decided to create this blog to share my opinions, experiences and photos of the places I’ve been throughout the country and the brews I’ve had. I’m constantly learning new things about the industry and beer making process.  I welcome any comments and personal experiences you would like to share.

    Are you open for user endorsed Beer Reviews??? As an avid Tacoma Beer drinker, I’d love to contribute my thoughts.. but only with permission and preview by host.

    Is there a better way than this message window to submit such reviews?

      Todd, thank you so much for your interest! I would love to hear your thoughts, but I’m not sure if there is another way other than the window. I will look into settings and see what I can find. 🙂 Thank you again!! Liz

  10. Hi Liz,
    I just posted a comment on your Bainbridge visit entry. Then I looked at your “about” description. You sound like a female version of me 🙂 My wife introduced me to quality beer. I also describe myself as just a guy who loves beer (and bicycling) and who is not a beer expert. I chronicle my beer-by-bike adventures around the Seattle area at my blog.

    I hope my dad doesn’t read this blog.He’s an ex English teacher,and my last post needs some work.Time to go back to school.I must have lost too many brain cells from all those great beers I’ve drank.

    Moved here (Newcastle) myself from HB back in mid 2006 (semi-retired). The beer is good but I do miss the sand between my toes.

  16. Jim Says:

    Moved here as well from HB. Living in Newcastle. Still miss the sand between my toes and frequently travel down to HB to satisfy that and my quench for surfing.
