It’s a lifestyle
Hi there, friend!
We are the Perrines – Milena and Chris. We share a love for craft beer and good food, we take beer-cations, we home brew tasty styles (one of us really) and we generally enjoy doing things centered around craft beer.
We savor the flavors, the excitement, the fun and the human connections created and strengthened by the oldest beverage of almost every culture. Welcome to our table!
Craft Beering is our passion. We came up with the phrase a couple of years ago and it stuck.
We live in colorful Colorado, a veritable mountain sports playground and a craft beer mecca. We are literally surrounded by progressive and creative craft breweries that constantly fuel our passion.
We both work hard and craft beering helps us relax and brings us closer together. We are parents of a smart and kindhearted boy who is our very best achievement in life.
Chris is a full-time executive chef and an avid home brewer. During his 20 + years career he has perfected his culinary skills at high-end restaurants and resorts such as the Westin, The Sonnenalp Vail, Richard Sandoval Hospitality, The Stanley Hotel Estes Park and Ginger & Baker.
Milena is a former finance professional and an avid home cook. She runs all aspects of this blog – recipe development, food photography, content creation and all the techy facets of the site.
Our cooking with beer and craft beer cocktails recipes showcase the multitude of diverse flavors in craft beer. Our recipes have been featured on The Spruce Eats, Craftbeer.com, Buzzfeed, The Coloradoan, American Homebrewers Association and we regularly contribute content to sites like Foodgawker.
