Reconnected by the same passions, kids and beer, Lorah and I met at Societe Brewing Company to chat food, beers and the incredible children and hubbies that have blessed our lives. The way that we shared stories and laughter, it was like I have known her my entire life. Lorah is inspiring, hilarious and a wealth of mama knowledge. I am so excited that she allowed me to ask her my Craft Beer Mama Questions! It is because of her, I am motivated to connect other craft beer mamas. Love her AWESOMENESS!!!
