Beach Vaca + Brewery Visit = Summer Perfection!

28 Aug

Ye olde Hops Honey is *very* nostalgic, and *loves* tradition… and one of my FAVORITE traditions in the whole entire world, is my family’s annual beach vacation to Cape May, NJ! My first time there was when I was 9 months old… and since then, there have only been 2 years that I have NOT gone to Cape May for a summer beach vacation!

Presenting: Back East Brewing Company!

17 Aug

As I mentioned in my preview post last week, this past Saturday was the official launch party of Connecticut’s newest brewery – Back East Brewing Company!

Located in Bloomfield, CT, Back East was founded by cousins Tony Karlowicz and Ed Fabrycki, who started homebrewing together back in 2006.

Yet again, I’ve been away from blogging for a while… but the reason this time is very much in my favor – I was searching for a  new job and, I’m super stoked to say that, I got one! After six years working for the non-profit ACWIS, I’ve moved back into the for-profit world and secured a position as an Administrative Assistant at consulting firm AlixPartners! It’s a really good move for me in a number of ways… one of which was that I got the opportunity to travel to Michigan for new-hire orientation!

So, what’s the first thing a craft beer-lover does when learning of a trip to a new city?!?! Why ask about the craft beer scene, of course! 🙂 Continue reading
