Small headache from too much brewski at the Draught House last night. The guys all threw in the towel early, leaving their wives behind for me to drink with!

Just who are these New Viking Women? Amy, co-owner of Texas Independence Brewing Company and one of the organizer of the Texas Brewers Festival, and Theresa, wife of Charles from Austin Homebrew Supply. We had a great time, talking about beer styles. I am really excited about having them involved with my fledgling organization, Austin Women's Beer League. Website is almost up, thanks to my wonderful friend and brew partner, decibel45.

It is amazing how even these knowledgeable and talented women are prone to let the men have more of the "limelight" when it comes to talking about beer. Which is what has driven me to create a true Women's Beer League. I want women not to be intimidated- to be comfortable in a forum of women who want to learn more and share about good brews, and even brew!

When you get it done, let me know. I would love to feature your web site and organization events on my mailing list. http://atxbeerlovers.captspastic.com

I list as many Austin beer related events as I can.

Yay, Beer!
Sounds great. I tried to do that at one time, but didn't have the time to collect and process all that info. Mind if I use you as a resource as well?

The site will be simple to start, just a front page. Eventually I want to build my own pages on beer styles, brewing, and history of women in brewing.

Re: Yay, Beer!
Please do.

Don't know if you know about http://www.ratebeer.com but it is a great resource for beer information.

Let me know the URL and if you have a mailing list or not when you get things all started. I really want to add you.

If you want, add yourself to my list as well.

If you need any help with FrontPage getting the site up, let me know. I'd be glad to help you out.

My domain registration is a bit hosed, that's why most people can't pull up the site. Theoretically it should all be fixed today.

Who are You?
I didn't recognize your new hair color and face! :P

Sounds great- but you can't gloat too much about the Polyphonic Spree and Bowie show, okay? Which reminds me- I still need to get all those SXSW photos up somewhere. The camera hasn't been very functional since it took that nosedive at Stubb's.
