Hey Now!

I think there’s a good chance that some of you are here after seeing Now Magazine’s article “Breaking the (beer)glass ceiling” in their spectacular Toronto Beer Guide put together by the equally spectacular Sarah Parniak. I’m in there with Mary-Beth Keefe from Granite Brewery and Mirella Amato from Beerology, both fantastic, world-class folks who you should go check out.

Also go check out that picture of Idris Elba. I haven’t been able to take my eyes off it. Sploosh.

So, hey there! Welcome to the site! Take your coat off, have a seat, close the door you’re letting the cold air out. I guess some introductions are in order here.

My name is Robin LeBlanc and I write about beer and beer-related things. Every now and then I go on TV and radio to talk about the amazing local beers and breweries as well. I was the only Canadian finalist in Saveur Magazine’s Food Blog Awards for the Wine & Beer category and even got featured on their Sites We Love column.  I like to keep things pretty casual on here, so if you’re looking for some lingo-heavy articles and industry gossip/internet outrages I’m afraid we’re fresh out.

By day I’m a mild-mannered freelance photographer and copy editor who is currently relying on a fantastic combination of coffee, rockabilly and classical music to stay awake. Most of the photos on this site are my own.

I have a twitter account at @TheThirstyWench

Also a Thirsty Wench Facebook Page

And if you want to contact me, day or night, I can be reached via e-mail at robin@thethirstywench.com

Please feel free to look around! I hope you enjoy reading my posts as much as I enjoy writing them.

Now without further ado, Myron, take it away.
