I was recently nominated to be one of the North Bay Business Journals Young Professionals, 40 Under 40. My best friend nominated me of course, she thinks I am amazing, as all best friends should think about their besties. 🙂 Well I didn’t make the cut, but that’s okay. Today I saw that I was on the second best list, the “40 Under 40 to Watch”. That’s pretty exciting too, so goals for next year: be better, work more, do more things with the community, have no spare time. Maybe I will make the top list next year :).

Since the dawn of beer, there’s been many ways to serve and store the beloved brew. In historic descriptions of beer drinking, beer was served from communal bowls and ceramic pots. Medieval monks in Europe stored beer in barrels and, after years of trial and error and shattered glass, it was first bottled in glass in London, England, over 400 years ago.
In 1935, after the American Can Company finally managed to figure out how to develop a container that could prevent the fizzy drink from chemically reacting with tin, beer was canned for the first time. By the end of that year, other companies like Pabst and Anheuser-Busch had followed suit and over 200 million cans were produced and sold.
Fast forward some 80 years and larger vessels like growlers and crowlers are now used to package the craft beer of our time.

No big bash is complete without a good guacamole dip! We all want to indulge but don’t necessarily want to pay the prince the next day after we have eaten EVERYTHING on the tables because all the sides and snacks just looked too good to pass up… this is great with healthy-style “chips: Serve with lettuce chips, carrots sticks, or celery instead of chips!
Use these healthy chips instead of salty tortillas to cut on calories, to save for more wine or craft beer!
