    I tweeted this to you, but I read that article and it was awesome!! Congrats on the award – totally deserved 🙂

    This looks like a perfect night – sometimes you just gotta have beer + bread for dinner!

    Congrats on the first month!!!! Glad it was good (next month it’ll be GREAT, I just know it!) 🙂

    Ok this is not a good thing for my name
    “#7 – All around IPA, slightly bitter, boring = Avery”

    At least I am Averie, not Avery 🙂

    Bread + beer for dinner? Tha’ts ok. I spent many ‘a night in my 20s drinking my dinner and then washing it down with Triscuits smeared with PB. And I love all the memories 🙂

    Congratulations on closing a good month sale-wise!

    Being that word-of-mouth is the best marketing tool, I am sure you will get more and more traffic each month once word gets out even more. Plus, you have a huge following and fan-base. You are a cele-bread-y (LOL) 🙂

    Eat more veggies tomorrow to make up for today 🙂

    I live vicariously through you tonight! Since going Gluten Free do to being allergic, I miss real bread and real beer. Oh what I wouldn’t do for a Guinness!!! So sad *tear*

    Love that USA in the beer 🙂 perfect for 4th of July weekend! Also, I think I am going to join you at body pump tomorrow! Just thought I should let you know…..and I think I convinced my grandpa to bring me to GH for lunch after. Finally get to try your sandwiches and pick up some bread for home. Thanks again for being so welcoming Kath, it means a lot!

    Congrats on that award! In good company it appears.

    Nothing wrong with bread and beer. I wish beer agreed with my stomach more – it bloats me more than salt – but it’s so good after a hot day 😉

    Sounds like you were thirsty! Lots of water and craving watermelon! Wish I picked some up at at the store. Darn.

  7. Molly @ RDexposed says

    Yay for fermented food items! I’m with you on the IPAs. I just had Green Flash and would also take it over Lagunitas IPA.

    My current beer love: Tangerine by Lost Coast. Perfect for summer!

  8. Katherina @ Zephyr Runs says

    Dogfish Head 60 minute is delicious 🙂 Try their 90 minute! Also I think a lot of restaurants have lower numbers in the summer months, when people tend to abandon routines. I’ll be interested to see if you’re over your head in sales in the Fall!

    I did a quick Google Search this morning of “I hate the new Google Calendar” and quickly found that you can click on the GEAR in the top right corner and switch back to Classic view. Ahhh — much better! 🙂

  10. Lauren says

    I’d love an IPA tasting. Every now and then, it’s okay to stray from a balanced meal and I’d say that your tasting was a good reason.

    I don’t understand why Google is always making updates to things that work so well. Maybe I just don’t deal well with change.

  11. Kevie says

    Do love the posts day after day after day 🙂 And I love that you do 3 per day, it gives me something new and good to read. Congrats on 30 under 30!

  12. Seamane says

    Thank you guys soooo much for coming! It ws wonderful to have you guys there, and the two of you and your amazing bread were both big hits. I’m already looking forward to the next one. Imperial stouts? Wheats? Dubbels? Barleywines? So many choices!

    And congrats on the award! Yay, Kath! 🙂

  13. Ashley @ Coffee Cake and Cardio says

    First off… CONGRATULATIONS!!! That is fantastic you 30 under 30!!

    Second… I’m not diggin’ the new google format. Google is really funky now and I’m not feeling the new calendar format. The colors are funky and it’s looks retro. I’m usually accepting of change, but this one wasn’t a good change from what I can tell so far.

    Third… How fun was y’alls beer tasting?? I looks like y’all had a blast!

  14. Julie H. says

    What a fun night! 🙂 Except for the whole #5 beer thing. YUCK!
    Congrats on the first month AND making 30 under 30! You are an inspiration, Kath! 🙂

  15. Lorin says

    Hi! I had a question about what you do when you don’t eat your bread fast enough and it becomes dry. I got some GH honey whole wheat bread on Sunday but now it’s a bit dry, do you typically make french toast with dry bread or just warm it up or just toss it out and get new bread. I should’ve saw this coming and froze half the loaf but now I think it might be too late. I’ll be coming by next Saturday to your GH! Yee :]

  16. J3nn(Jenn's Menu and Lifestyle Blog) says

    Congrats on your first month of bakery sales! You are going to be sooo busy around the holidays!! Would not be surprised if they were your busiest months of the year.

    I like Google less and less these days; partly for their politics, partly for straying away from simplicity.

  17. Mary-Heather says

    I actually laughed out loud at the happy/sad face “reviews” of the IPAs. That’s *hilarious*!!

    My favorite IPA is local – Happy Camper IPA, from here in New Mexico. It’s so tasty and fresh and pine-y, and it comes in the cutest cans ever! I love it.

  18. Kelley says

    That “Now I lay me down to sleep” prayer used to scare me when I was little. LOL “What do you mean someone’s going to take my soul while I’m sleeping?! If I die before I wake?! What?!” That’s heavy stuff for a little kid. haha

  19. E says

    Congratulations on the successful first month & on the 30 under 30 award! I read the article & wanted to mention this question:

    {What do you do to make yourself stand out in such an over-saturated field?
    “I aim for consistency and dedication. I hope my readers appreciate the timeliness and thought that goes into each post, day after day after day after day”}

    I definitely appreciate your consistency – the frequency & quality of your blog posts is exactly why your blog is my favorite. Keep up the good work! 😀

  20. tiffany says

    YUMM i love IPAs! i also LOVE hops!!!!
    i’ll have to try the dogfish 60 and schlafly. what kind of ipas do you recommend if i LOVE hops and dislike maltiness?

  21. Christie Inge says

    I am so with you on the calendar thing. I logged in while on the phone with a client for the first time and I literally gasped out loud. I hope i get used to it soon. I have heard it has some great features but I agree, the changes were very dramatic with no warning!

  22. Kristin @ eat healthy. be happy. live well. says

    Congrats on the award!!! You definitely deserve it 🙂

    As for Google, I never use the calendar, but I love the changes they made to Gmail with the scrolling option bar that goes with you in each message! I’ve been dying for them to create that! I’ll have to check out the new themes and the calendar now.

  23. anna says

    Congrats!! 😀 You deserve it.

    I <3 IPA's (I'm my mother's daughter). My parents are lucky enough to live near a Dogfish Head alehouse– definitely a perk of going home 🙂 They definitely make complex, one-of-a-kind beers. Mmm now I want one, too bad it's 7 a.m…. Beer for dinner may work out, but I'm going to go ahead and say beer for breakfast would cause a few more problems 😛

  24. Angela says

    Congrats on the first months sales and your award!
    I have no idea about IPAs and would totally do the faces in this situation!
    What a great idea for something to do though. i think I’ll arrange something similar with my friends.

  25. Summer @ Well-rounded Hippie says

    Congrats on the award and yay for completing your first month! I’m learning to appreciate some IPAs. But I had to laugh at the title of this post…that’s what my sister and I had for dinner last Saturday. Only our bread wasn’t quite as good as yours and we had Belhaven Scottish Stout and a few Leinenkugels Summer Shandy (two of my faves). LOVED how you described the beers you tasted!

  26. Kim says

    I also was an IPA dis-liker, until a restaurant in town (Halifax, Nova Scotia) started brewing almost solely IPAs. The brewer is a bit insane, so the range of IPAs is crazy! I can still only drink one (slowly), but maybe that’s a good thing. I had the pleasure of trying a Dogfish 60 Min. in Toronto last year. Yummy! Boyfriend had a 90 Minute, but that was tooo bitter for me. I’m jealous of the variety of beers you have access to!

  27. Selena says

    Congrats on your first month!

    I’m so surprised (and excited) to see Dogfish out there. That’s a DE brewery and for some reason I didn’t think it was something non-DE folks knew about. So happy to see a hometown brewery getting the love elsewhere.

  28. Shana says

    I love Dogfish Head (but not the IPA). The brewery and restaurant is just a few minutes from where I work and they have tons of tasty brews. One of my all time faves is called Midas Touch which is flavored with honey. I don’t have any fancy adjectives to describe it other than it is sweet and delicious! PS…I am going to be at the Healthy Living Summit. Perhaps I should bring you a bottle?

    • KathEats says

      I would LOVE to go to a Dogfish brewpub someday and taste all the unique ones!! If you brought ones to HLS I would surely be excited – we could share it for cocktail hour!?

      • Shana says

        Sounds like a plan! If you’re ever in Delaware, definately stop by the brewery for a free tour and samples. And the restaurant has some amazing eats with tons and tons of unique beers and distilled spirits.

  29. Emily says

    Funny – we live in Petaluma and Lagunitas is absolutely my dad’s FAVORITE beer. He absolutely loves it, and as far as beers go, I don’t mind it either!

  30. Stacy @ Every Little Thing says

    Glad you liked Schlafly! Was it the AIPA? That is one of their best beers, but truly they don’t make anything bad. St. Louis has become this craft beer mecca recently – we’ve had like 6 craft breweries open up in the last six months!
