Oh Hai!!!

This is an idea we've played around with for quite some time, but have never had the time or energy to pursue it. Honestly, I really don't know how to start this whole thing off, but Alex told me I had to make the first post "because it will sound nicer coming from you". I'm not really sure about that....he IS the nicer of us two....but here we go.

I promise that this will be the corniest statement I ever make on this blog, but I can't think of another way to open. Alex and I (Erica) are best friends and I can honestly say that he is my other half. (Done with the sappy!) That being said, here's a little about the two of us. He likes his burgers and I like my veggie burgers. He's a soccer hooligan, and I don't believe that's a real sport. He likes video games, I like InStyle magazine. He knows politics, I know science (or at least we pretend to know more than the other does). The list goes on and on.

Our biggest shared passion, however, is something that many will make their assumptions about us for, and that is our interest in alcohol. I don't mean that in a bad way, and I'm not condoning alcoholism or any sort of neglectful drinking. What I mean is that we're both very into finding and trying new beers, wine, vodka, etc....whatever it is, we have, or are, willing to try it. We're not the typical "I'll drink this because it's what I know" type. We like to find things we aren't sure about, or haven't hear of before, and give them a go. This is a hobby that makes us unique and has kept our relationship interesting.

Which brings us to this blog. We decided to start a blog documenting our experiences and adventures. We've traveled to breweries and wineries to get firsthand tastes of where our favorite drinks come from. We've dabbled in making our own concoctions. Got an idea for us? A recipe, brew, or place to visit? Email us at  We've got a small lineup that should hold us over for the next few weeks, but we'd love to hear suggestions on what to try (or where to go!) next!!

(Please bear with us with the overall look of this page for the next few weeks. I am not much of an Internet gal, and I don't know how much Alex knows about this particular site, but once we get the feel of things we'll be able to make it more visually appealing.)

Until next time!!!


  1. Very cool guys! Look forward to seeing more!

  2. I'm not a big drinker. But you guys knew this already. This is informative and very fun to read and I hope you guys keeps this up. Great Idea! Look forward to what's in store.

  3. Great idea for a blog! If you have a chance this summer or early fall, I HIGHLY suggest touring Dogfish Head Brewery AND going to their brewpub in Rehoboth Beach. Since DFH is like the pioneer of the craft beer revival, they have really made a huge production out of their brewery tour and offerings. I look forward to continue reading your blog.
