Hey Everyone! I’m Barb,

Beer connoisseur, tv host, actress, lifestyle expert, adventure junky, entertainer, world traveler, blogger, plastic surgeon and current Speaker of the House of Representatives.  Some of that isn’t correct, but I’ll let you figure that out.  I have been pretending like I know what I’m talking about for most of my life, so I figured a blog would fit right in.

What I Do

I do more than just drink beer and wine. I TALK about beer and wine. I also homebrew beer, kombucha, keifer and saukraut. I love all things fermented AND fermented foods are good and good for you! Win!

I am the Vice President of Fermenta: A Women’s Craft Collective, Midwest Event Ambassador for Brooklyn Brewery, putting out a wine and collaborating on a beer soon. I have been on tv shows, in magazines, have done presentations on different topics in the industry singing the praises and reaching out to attract women and people of color who feel they may not be included whole heartedly. Just seeing a face that looks familiar or feels familiar, gives you the courage to jump in. I’m telling you…JUMP IN!

I’m also a TV Host. Check That out at by clicking below.
