Meet Christina

I really have been into craft beer since I came of age to legally drink in America. My parents lived in Wisconsin which is home to some amazing craft breweries like New Galrus, a small brewery that makes some truly exceptional beers, including their famous Spotted Cow. When I was at University in West Virginia, we used to drive 45 minutes out of state to pick up quality craft beers that weren't available in the state yet. I've lived in six states in the US, most recently, in Northern Virginia, outside of Washington, D.C. The craft beer scene in and around DC is massive. There are loads of events like the Northern Virginia Brewfest, as well as some great craft breweries, brew pubs and craft beer bars. Craft beer is a big movement in DC and you will, in my estimation, run into more people who like craft beer than not. It was because of this that a friend and I co-founded a craft beer group for women in 2009, which my friend still runs. 
I moved to Ireland in August of 2011 to pursue my postgraduate degrees and joined Beoir right away. 
 
Christina is the founder of the Dublin Ladies Craft Beer Society on meetup.com
 
Chairman's note:
 
We have set up a new forum on Beoir forum called Beoir Ladies and Christina will be trying to round up women to join Beoir and get involved as well as existing women who tend not to be so active. Christina has already organised many beer events for women in the US and Ireland so I am confident in her abilities.
