Now you have another reason to take in the Black Star Barter on Feb. 5, 2011, during the Whitefish Winter Carnival. Ashley Routson, The Beer Wench, is joining the fun as the the Black Star Barter official reporter, following up on her gig as the Chief Beer Blogger from the recent Beer Blogger's Conference. She will be conducting live interviews with the participants, spectators, judges, and the folks at The Great Northern Brewing Company.
Ashley, author of one of the finest beer blogs, Drink With the Wench, is a new-media beer evangelist, working hard to advance the craft beer industry through education, inspiration and advocacy. Her addition to the Black Star Barter should be a lot of fun, though someone might want to warn her to leave the Ohio State jerseys at home.
