{A Brewtiful Pair} Flemish Style Red Ale & Blackberry Galette

The Beer: Oude Tarte, The Bruery

With the aroma and colour of dark plums, this tart, oak-aged sour beer is a dramatic visual and culinary counterpart to the seasonally available Georgia blackberries around every corner this time of year. The complementary flavor combinations of the blackberry galette Chef Karie put together for this pairing provides a delicious interplay of sweet and tart that will definitely become part of my seasonal drinking repertoire.

HB's Tasting tips: Blended by up to half with tonic water (similar to a Shandy) the tart notes of this Red Ale reveal layers of complexity that might be obscured by this intensely sour, Flemish style (also called Flanders red or Belgian red) beer. Though I didn't have any on hand, the inclusion of a shot of black currant (like that used in a Guinness and Black) might also be appropriate as an addition to a sour beer cocktail.

Mary O. Boyle {A Lady Who Loves Beer}

As a special offer to Hey, Brewtiful readers, our feature for the month is offering a $50 credit to her online shop good for a custom order or existing listing! Enter here {} or at the end of this feature.

Born and raised in Arizona, this west-coast woman has counted over 20 years in Atlanta home. When she's not out promoting the book on beer she recently co-wrote with her partner (detailing the history of brewing in Atlanta), you'll likely find her sipping on spirits or gluten-free beer or working on her libations line of jewelry. With a beer crush that includes the witty Brew Dogs duo, an aversion to non-readers ("we won't talk about those people"), and a love for the older Georgia breweries who are still innovating (count me in on all three), this Lady and I have a lot of common ground.  

Meet Mary O. Boyle: a lady who loves beer.  

Tell us about you. Where are you from? How did you end up in Atlanta? Do you think this is your forever home? When you're not drinking beer, you're...
Well, I was born and raised in Arizona more years ago than I like to count.

Did You #EarnYourBrew?

Editor's note: This is a sample sponsored post. To inquire about rates and investment options, 
please contact Jessica with your proposal and sponsorship needs/goals.

In moderation, drinking beer can actually play a key role in "being good" to yourself, providing benefits like improved cardiovascular health, reducing stress, and improving problem solving skills. But we could probably all use a little more balance in our lives between imbibing (maybe a little too much sometimes) and being good to ourselves.

For my part I've spent the last two months doing a lot of walking, getting familiar with my juicer (more about that in an upcoming post), reconnecting to some long neglected parts of myself through my Yin Yoga practice, and taking a much needed look inward and away from the blog for a bit. I've learned a lot (some of it new, some of it new again) about myself.

I've learned I feel better when I take time to get outside, acknowledge my need for down time, and take it easier on myself (read: settle down on the todo list). Most importantly, I've accepted that I have a tendency to take things too seriously, and that if I ease up a bit on my own impossible standards of success and just enjoy the ride a lot of the "hard stuff" becomes easier to process. It feels pretty darn awesome to laugh off some of my mistakes, and take the negativity of others with a grain of salt. I'm physically lighter by about ten pounds, and probably emotionally too. 

Since I invited you to #EarnYourBrew along with me, some of ya'll have really been cashing in on the opportunity to get your fitness on. It's great to see others on the path to balancing out good beer with the rest of the good life. Thanks for affirming the importance of investing in you.

Osayi Endolyn: A Lady Who Loves Beer

photo credit Andrew Thomas Lee
A prolific writer based out of Atlanta, this California-born woman dreams of visiting Tokyo (for the sumo wrestling of course) and counts her tenacity through tough times among her proudest accomplishments. 

Currently working on a book about the U.S. Marine Corps, and an ongoing column on craft beer and cocktails in Atlanta Magazine (which you should definitely check out), this lady is a class act with a taste for Lagunitas (all the Lagunitas) and Orpheus Brewing's Serpent Bite.

Meet Osayi Endolyn: a lady who loves beer.  

Tell us about you. Where are you from? How did you end up in Atlanta? Do you think this is your forever home? When you're not drinking beer, you're...
I’m from California, born and raised. I grew up all over the state, but moved to Atlanta not long after finishing undergrad at UCLA. Atlanta means a lot to me. I have dear friends in this city and fell in love here. I started my pursuit in writing as a career here, so I discovered things about myself that are uniquely connected to this place. This is the city where I really became a grownup. Atlanta has given me some amazing opportunities.
When I’m not drinking beer, I’m reading, writing, editing, practicing yoga, tracking down good charcuterie, and depending on the season, watching sports. Also, having a solo dance party from time to time is really good for morale.
