Big Boots & a Collaborative Brew Day

In 2014, the Pink Boots Society started up International Women’s Collaboration Brew Day, also known as Big Boots Brew Day, in support of women in the brewing industry. Haven’t heard of it? Don’t worry, you will. In its second year, the amount of women and breweries participating grew exponentially. One can only imagine how it […]


From Flood to WURST & the Reopening of a Calgary Favourite

It’s been seven months since the flood in Calgary, and Mission’s WURST Überkitchen and Wunderbar {previously known as WURST German Restaurant and Beerhall} is better than ever. In fact, you wouldn’t even know that the restaurant had been devastated, closed, and nearly completely rebuilt over the past six months. Chris Rosamond, General Manager, chose to […]


Kayaks, Craft Beer, and Sand Dunes: the Best of My Magdalen Voyage

As the small plane dropped in altitude in preparation for landing, my mind was racing. Will we land safely? I wonder if they’ll speak much English. Seriously – is this plane going to land in one piece? I don’t agree with the science of flight! I wonder what C is thinking; he’s never been this […]


The 2013 Banff Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival: a Delicious Night in the Rockies

Every year, the Banff Rocky Mountain Wine & Food Festival rolls into the stunning Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel, showcasing some of the best restaurants, the tastiest local {and not so local} beverages, and – of course – the unmistakable hospitality of the people of Banff. I had the pleasure of attending again this year, and […]


Design District Urban Tavern: Beer, Pickles, and so much more

The charcuterie order form at Design District Urban Tavern {more commonly known simply as District} proudly and confidently claims that it is “where foodies go to drink”. I couldn’t have said it any better myself. After all, the draught beer lineup is anything but boring {a lineup that includes six house micro brews from Brew […]


Phillips Draught Beer & a Bite at National Beer Hall

I don’t know if you love beer as much as I do, but if you do, let’s be friends. Beer doesn’t get enough credit, really. It’s just as complex with its brewing methods and flavours as wine {if not more} and its fancy-pants ways, so I think we should be giving it a pat on […]


Judging & Drinking: Beerfest at its Best

You know how some beer brands have coveted titles such as Best North American Style Lager and Best Fruit Beer? Have you ever wondered who decides this? It’s me! Me! Me! No, it’s not really me. But on May 5th, I did have a bit of a taste of what it’s like to be a […]


Eat Alberta: In Pictures

From artisan pasta making to mushroom foraging, the sessions at Edmonton’s Eat Alberta event on April 15th covered just about everything a food-lover could desire. Keep reading for a small recap of the day, photos, and more information on the presenters. KEYNOTE The day began with a talk titled, Life on the Back 40. The […]


What an Escape: a Grape Escape!

Give me food and wine {or beer, or spirits…}, and I’ll be a happy girl. Yes, it’s that simple. When my belly is full and I have a drink in hand, I tend to not have a care in the world. You should try it… it works. So on Saturday, March 17, when I had […]


A Tasty Combination & Whole Wheat Beer Me Bread

Ah. Now there’s a whole new meaning to the phrase, “beer me.” Err… not that I use that term all that often or anything. But on those rare times that I do, it could mean, “Hey! Pour me a nice pint there, won’t you?” or, “Hey! Slice me a piece of that bread, good sir.” […]
