Philadelphia Girls’ Pint Out
I’m Kristen, lover of beer, foodie, and proud contributor to Girls’ Pint Out. I’m really excited to be heading up the GPO chapter in Philadelphia! I started drinking beer a few years ago, but before then I couldn’t stand the taste of it. Probably because I’d only had awful beer. Finally, a Harpoon UFO came along and became the first beer I actually enjoyed. From there, beer and I have had a budding relationship that just seems to get better with time. Ever since I really started paying attention to the beer I drink I’ve found so many new varieties, tastes, and breweries. I get a little nerdy about beer too. Give me all the information that you can – the story behind the beer, the hops used, the time it takes to ferment, the process of creating those unique flavors – and I’ll happily listen and take notes. I’m a foodie too, and like trying to incorporate all the things I love into what I cook – beer included. I figure, why only drink beer when you can use it in your food too? Outside of GPO I’m an event planner and higher education professional. I was part of the MA chapter before coming to Philadelphia and love all the amazing people I’ve met and beers I’ve been able to try because of Girls’ Pint Out.
