THROUGH THE EYE OF THE BEER HOLDER
Stephanie is the beer-loving creative behind Brewer's Palette. Her first sip of beer took place at approximately 2 years old, judging by the photographic evidence, and from there, her love of the liquid gold libation took off.
Far from what one might consider a ‘beer snob’, Steph is simply a lover of beer. She is not afraid to rank a certain micro-turned-mass-produced-LB-owned brew among her favourites. And much to her chagrin, she wasn't savvy enough to know better and drank a large Kwak sans the wooden stand. That being said, Steph just couldn’t help but carve out a corner of the web to dedicate to her adoration of the sudsy beverage.
Here are three beer facts about Steph. Her favourite style of beer if she had to choose would be porters… or stouts, or cream ales. The most delicious beer ever, in her opinion: Flying Monkeys Chocolate Manifesto. Steph’s favourite brewery is Brouwerij’t IJ (mostly because it’s in a windmill. In Amsterdam. And they have awesome branding and the beer is delicious) Her words.
And here are three facts about Steph not pertaining to beer. Most notably, Steph won the Treadgold trophy in 1997 which is awarded to the kid who accumulates the most amount of points in various canoe races. She has completed roughly 75% of an HBA specializing in the completely relevant field of Philosophy. She was once the beholder of a Kit Kat bar that was missing its internal crispy wafer (Gasp!).
As for the idea behind Brewer’s Palette and the artwork, it all stemmed from Steph’s obsession with trying unique brews. Wanting a way document (and maybe show off) her beer conquests, her affinity of art and design proved to be the solution. She began painting beer with beer, and her trophy wall was erected. The aforementioned Treadgold trophy is sadly not a part of this wall.
