    Coastal BC Craft Breweries That Make It Worth Going the Extra Road Trip Mile

    Continuing with our #friendsinbeerplaces road trip along the Coastal Ale Trail… When I travel,  I’m all about convenience, efficiency, and quality. No set order. All three things come in handy when exploring, but sometimes you need to go the extra mile (or ferry) in order to find quality. The road less travelled, if you will. And that is why the Brit and I are big fans of Love Shack Libations and Townsite Brewing – they are craft breweries that go the extra mile for their customers, which makes going off the beaten path completely worth it.

    Where to stay, eat and explore in Powell River on the Sunshine Coast

    With the goal of unplugging and getting our hygge on, the Brit and I went on a Sunshine Coast road trip this past Canadian Thanksgiving long weekend. While it was odd not having a turkey dinner, we had the best time exploring the area and being with each other. I was doing an Instagram takeover for Townsite Brewing, so unplugging was a bit of a challenge, but the other half of the goal was very successful! We had a cozy place to stay, good food, and got out into the trees. We spent most of the weekend on the North Coast in Powell River – a town I don’t think I’d…

    Townsite is where hygge is at – my guest post at TownsiteBrewing.com!

    I recently had the opportunity to interview Townsite Breweing’s co-owner, Michelle Zutz, as well as write a guest blog post on the Townsite Brewing website. This was an exciting opportunity and I’m so happy to share it here:  And now a word from our (non) sponsor…. last week Powell River played host to Yasmine Hardcastle, a woman on a search for the perfect hygge experience. Here you can read of her adventures chez nous: It’s officially autumn – brisker weather and that BC rain… All you want to do is stay inside, curled up with a book and a blanket. And if you go out, it’s always good to be…

    City Girl Connects: Interview with Townsite Brewing’s Michelle Zutz

    The Brit and I spent Thanksgiving long weekend on BC’s Sunshine Coast. While there, we had the opportunity to visit Powell River’s award-winning Townsite Brewing, and I was given the reins of their Instagram account. The opportunity for that and this interview came from me taking a chance to reach out and Townsite coming back to me with an open mind to try something new. It’s very similar to the Townsite Brewing story. I sat down with Michelle Zutz (Townsite Brewing Co-Founder, Boss Lady, Director of Sales, Working Mum, and all-around Great Gal), both in person and electronically, to talk about how a perfect storm of events became a Sunshine Coast…
