Amber is a craft beer writer and marketer who loves craft beer (duh), travelling, wiener dogs and a good statement earring. Say hi to her on the ‘gram at @amber_callmebatman &  @hops_and_finedrops and read some of her beer articles. Twice a month Amber will be curating a list of people, places and things that are inspiring us right now. Recipes, new breweries to check out, podcasts we’re loving, must-try beers, stories of women generally doing awesome things-you get the picture. This sweet list will show up in the Society Scoop twice a month.

Here’s a little taste of what’s to come.

Avling Brewing is the newest edition to the Leslieville craft beer scene and is worth a visit for the airy, Scandinavian-inspired taproom and rooftop garden alone but don’t worry the beer is really good too! 

We’re all about the CBC’s Out in the Open podcast hosted by Piya Chattopadhyay, a badass award-winning Canadian journalist. Each week Piya explores different timely topics and brings the real talk to real life.

We can’t get enough of Esther Perel, a therapist, author, speaker and one of the most original and insightful voices on personal and professional relationships. We’re adding her book Mating in Captivity: Reconciling the Erotic and Domestic to our fall reading list–and if you prefer listening to reading you might like her podcast Where Should We Begin?

Currently fangirling over DRAKECEREAL aka Sarah Brown. Originally from Toronto (straight outta’ Dundas West), her work is inspired by the 90s’, Spike Lee joints, Michael Jordan, Nike sneakers and stoners.

Bevy Friends Forever
In coming issues, we’d love to feature women who met a new BBF (Bevy Friends Forever) at one of our events. Have a tale of a friendship that blossomed over a pale ale? Drop us a line!

And that’s all for now pals. We hope you like this sneak peek of what’s to come.
