The Burden of Beer

My views on pretty much anything can be boiled down to one philosophy; I don’t care what another person does as long as it doesn’t directly effect me. I really don’t care if you like to drink Drano or you marry your bearded dragon and I certainly don’t waste time worrying about what you think… Read more »

Holy Shit That’s a Lot of Impressions

Despite the memes circulating around promising us all that 2016 was the worst year ever I have had a lot of fun reflecting on it. Specifically in regards to my job at Iron Horse. My position involves managing our social media and keeping track of the interactions, impressions, likes (and unlikes) that we receive. If… Read more »

How to Spot a Basic Bro

Recently I wrote about basic bitches and their slow takeover of the indie beer scene. But their counterpart “basic bros,” are also taking over what was once a “hipster” hobby. Now indie beer is something the frat dudes take part in too. Like the term “basic bitch,” basic bro refers to men who predominantly like mainstream… Read more »

10 Seconds of Beer

Snapchat – A mobile messaging service that sends a photo or video to someone that lasts only up to 10 seconds before it disappears. During that time, the recipient can take a screenshot, and the sender is notified that it was taken. That is the internet explanation of what Snapchat is. Even if you don’t… Read more »

How to Spot A Basic Bitch

Everyone is at least a little bit basic, yes even men. It’s impossible not to be, humans have been on Earth for about 200,000 years, there’s nothing new under the sun, you’re just like everybody else, you’re a basic bitch. If you’re not familiar with the term basic bitch (or simply “basic”) it can be… Read more »

Shut Up and Drink

We like making beer. We experiment with ingredients, styles and wacky names. Some of our stuff has been well received, some of it hasn’t. When a beer seems to be popular we keep making it, when it’s not as popular we stop. That’s generally the way a business works in a free market. Untappd and… Read more »

Earth Beer

It’s Earth Day which means today everyone celebrates how beautiful the earth is, discusses the many ways humans are destroying the Earth, some children plant a few trees, you recycle a can and feel good about yourself and then tomorrow everything goes back to normal. The brewing industry uses a lot of stuff. Water, crops… Read more »

Vegan Beer?

At first the term “vegan beer” may seem unnecessary. Afterall, beer is made with four main ingredients, water, malts, hops and yeast. Those four ingredients are all vegan friendly but there is some debate or rather confusion as to what the definition of vegan is or what beers are considered vegan. A lot of the… Read more »

Beer and running. The two seem to go hand in hand these days. We put on our own St. Paddy Day Half K “run,” races like the Warrior Dash include a free beer in your entry fee and the Beer Mile is an official Flotrack event. I am an avid runner myself and I have… Read more »

The Morning After

St. Patrick’s day is approaching which means a hangover is approaching. I am lucky that for whatever reason I rarely get hangovers but St. Paddy Day gets me every time. Even though there isn’t a drop of Irish blood in me St. Paddy Day has got to be one of my favorite times a year…. Read more »

Gettin’ Handsy

Handshakes. For a working person they’re a part of daily life. Most people probably don’t think anything of them. By most people I mean most men. Handshakes get weird with women. Here are the weirdest things that happen when women try to shake hands with men. The Noodle Hand – I have watched a man… Read more »

Drunk Presidents

We take a whole day out of the year to remember our former (and current) presidents. While it’s my belief that no one actually takes time to honor our prezzies, and instead uses the day as time to catch up on sleep, the holiday has got me askin’ some questions. Being president is a tough… Read more »

I Have a Dream for Craft Beer

Someone I work with recently brought to my attention that there is a major lack of color in the brewing industry. I was already aware of this but having the cold hard facts laid in front of you can be pretty disheartening. Not only are my fellow brothers and sisters missing out, so is the… Read more »

To the Guy Who Bought Me A Beer and Never Called Back

It’s not the thought that counts. You thought your gesture was harmless, but when you offered me a beer and I accepted, I offered you a piece of my heart. You thought that being enigmatic was an excuse to not take time to notice what made our encounter special. You let your past, your pride,… Read more »

#H5Project

Hugging has got to be one of the worst communication devices ever invented. The intention is good and all, letting someone know you care enough about them to touch their torso to yours; but the road to Hell is paved with good intentions. What heartwarming form of human contact doesn’t suck you ask? The high… Read more »

#UnicornConnie aka the 3rd Intern

People who know me well may be surprised that I landed an internship at Iron Horse Brewery. I’m the girl who didn’t drink until I was 21, practices a “dry season” while competing in track and the only thing I’ve ever shot-gunned is a 20 oz. bottle of water after a cross-country race. All this… Read more »
