When you're a travel writer and a beer drinker, there's always an opportunity for a story. When Karen Asp travels for fun or on assignment, she makes it a point to add the brewing scene to enhance her experience. In this episode, she talks about navigating the Alaskan beer scene. About the guest: Karen Asp is an Indiana-based journalist who writes for numerous leading publications, including All About Beer, Craftbeer.com, Delta Sky, Better Homes and Gardens, VegNews, Real Simple Woman’s Day, O, Martha Stewart Living, USA Today, Women’s Health and Prevention. She’s also an author whose most recent book is Anti-Aging Hacks. Along with her fitness endeavors, volunteer work with animal shelters and sanctuaries, and vegan coaching she does, craft beer is one of her biggest passions (beer makes her smile!). She’s fortunate that her career allows her to travel the world, and she not only seeks out breweries wherever she is but also counts beer as her favorite travel souvenir. Her favorite style? IPAs, especially hazy IPAs that are citrus-forward.
