Toast to his and hers


His & Hers Beer Notes, the popular local brew blog by husband-wife team Darcey B. Self and Daniel Barnes, already has gotten its share of huzzahs in Sacramento magazines and media. But SN&R’s Brew the Right Thing is never one to be left out, at least when it comes to suds, so I just wanted to quickly recommend that you make your way to the website each week for brew recommendations, analysis and—best of all—Darcey’s vibrant, cool beer illustrations. I may not always agree with the couple—4.5 toasts for Sierra Nevada Brewing Co.’s Narwhal?—but I’m always checking in to read. And, duh, drink. (Full disclosure: Daniel Barnes is also a contributing writer to SN&R.)
