In addition to blogging, they have also helped coordinate beer festivals with I Heart Beer, and organized other beer events such as a food & beer pairing walking tour. Keenly interested in all aspects of beer, they’re working on their Prud’homme certification and are both currently Level 1, Certified Beer Enthusiasts.

Jessica is a health researcher/social worker by trade, and also writes novels, grows vegetables, and crafts things in her spare time. Josh is a computer programmer for a local non-profit with a keen interest in politics, both local and international, and a constant drive to learn the newest and greatest cooking techniques.

In terms of favourite beers, Jessica and Josh have a shared love for dark, smoky, and sour. Shared favourites have included: Belwoods Motley Cru 2016, Black Oak’s Nox Aeterna, and The Exchange & Oud Bruin. Jessica also loves ultra malty or fruity/herby beers, such as Side Launch Dark Lager, Neustadt Springs 10w30, Belwoods Plum Jelly King, and Great Lakes Grimace’s Tears. Josh leans further to the dark or barrel-aged brews such as Nickel Brook’s Kentucky Bastard, Mill Street’s Cobblestone Stout, and Forked River’s Weendigo Imperial Stout.
