Hops and Spice

Hops and Spice and everything nice celebrates the intertwined worlds of quality craft beer and food. As a marketing and events professional, helping these industries succeed is a passion of mine. I want people to see the true quality and craftsmanship that goes into food and beverages that are created from the heart.

There’s more to beer than hops, water, barley, and yeast. More to cooking than following a recipe. Ingredients and process are only elements of making a successful product. The love for a brand, the sense of community, knowing where something was grown, where it was made and by whom, and that feeling you get when you know that someone poured all their energy and pride into what’s on your plate, or in your pint glass.



  1. “U know Who” is slow cooking a Prime Rib Roast for dinner guests tonight. Not sure how to work craft beer into the recipe? And can you suggest a pairing with the meal


    • You can always just add a beer to the slow cooker with some barbecue sauce, wochestire, garlic and onions. When the roast is almost done you remove the liquid and boil it down for a beer gravy! Just add some thickener at the end. šŸ™‚
      The option of a nice Parallel 49 Ruby Tears or Phillips blue buck would be good! Both BC beers.


  2. Have you ever tried spare ribs boiled in a porter or stout of your choice with apple juice, garlic, onions and spices. Then brown the ribs over the BBQ.
