MOXIE LADY is about living.

CULINARY – Food is art, food is fun, and it’s fun to discover new dishes and places. Discover culinary on many levels throughout the Bay Area and beyond.

CRAFT BEER – I am a beer traveler, I have visited nearly 500 breweries across the nation. I want to share those experiences with the world and promote all of the great breweries I love.

WINE – My heart- I am a wine professional: DTC and Marketing Communications/Hospitality. I love what I do and I love wine. This blog promotes local wine events and happenings and occasionally shows what else is going on in the wine industry.

RECIPES – Mostly paleo and whole30 style cooking here. I fell hard for the clean eating movement, and being a HUGE foodie, I strive to create exciting and deliciously creative dishes to satisfy the need to eat something more exciting while still eating clean. All recipes are my own unless otherwise noted. I mostly dabble in dishes that are easy to make in bulk so as to freeze some for later, quick dinners for the working mom, because I am, and things that the entire family will like, because that just makes it easier!  

TRAVEL – I enjoy sharing my experiences with my readers and social media channels. I like to talk to locals when I travel to new areas and find the best places to hike, the cool places to get drinks, the hot spots for food, and the best places for coffee. It’s important to get the local influence in order to have a true genuine experience in that area. Not all of us can speak to locals so I take what I’ve learned and experienced and share it on MOXIE LADY.

LIFESTYLE – All of the above, plus family stuff, work, entertaining, ideas, tips & tricks, local events, beer/wine/food events in the North Bay/Bay Area and beyond, and more. All things life. And the occasional SF Giants gab.
I hope you will find MOXIE LADY resourceful when planning beer-cations, when looking at what events to go to in the Bay Area, when you are stuck eating the same ‘ol thing and need something fresh and new, or when you just want to check out what I’ve been saying lately.

SF Beer Week – A Huge Success!

Brewers made the trek from all over Northern California to pour their beers at the opening gala for SF Beer Week in San Francisco. Mayor Ed Lee was there to lead media and bloggers in a toast with the SF Brewers Guild Collaboration Ale: New Frontier. Sonoma County breweries came in full force with new beers, brewers and owners pouring, and ambassadors educating the patrons.

Russian River Brewing Company brought Pliny the Younger, enough to last until about 8:30PM and the line never died down, much like the line outside of the brewpub in Santa Rosa.

The line for Pliny the Younger only got longer as the event went on, it wrapped around in circles and then was directed outside down the side of the pier. People LOVE their RRBC and this year Russian River brought a substantial amount of Younger so they would not run out. It didn't last all night, but it lasted until about 8:30PM.

New England-Style IPA’s were all the rage with Bear Republic Brewing and Sonoma Springs bringing in two of the best, well made “Juicy IPA’s” of the night.
