Exciting news, everyone! I just had an article published on the Washington Beer Blog: http://www.washingtonbeerblog.com/the-stoup-story-betting-the-farm-on-beer/

I got the incredible opportunity to interview the founders of Stoup Brewing—Lara Zahaba, Brad Benson and Robyn Schumacher—and to tell the story of quit their jobs and put everything they had on the line to pursue their dream of opening a brewery.

Today, Stoup is one of the most iconic and popular spots in Seattle’s bustling Ballard brewery district—but the going wasn’t always easy. Learn how they risked it all to follow their hearts—a tale that is near and dear to my own. It takes a lot of courage to leave what is comfortable and leap into the unknown, but with great risk comes great reward.

Today is Stoup’s fifth anniversary, and I can’t wait to celebrate the success of taking the leap. If you’re in Seattle today, October 23, stop by the brewery from 3-9pm and raise a glass!

Many thanks to Kendall Jones for giving me the chance to tell their story, and share my work with the world. Want me to tell your business’ story? For information on my freelance writing and editing services, visit my business website.
