Welcome to beersnbreads!

Welcome to beersnbreads, an adventure of carb-a-licious proportions! We’re your hosts, Marley and Liz, and we’re taking you around the world in pursuit of getting the best bakes and buds in town, from Berlin to DC, Boston to Rome, Anchorage to Austria.


What qualifies us as carb experts? Well, it all began in the year 2010, when a young Marley moved across the pond to Dublin, Ireland, a quaint place renowned for its beer-loving peoples. A mere 20 years old, Marley threw down her bags and set off to do what any good American would do in a new and vibrant land: Find alcohol. It was in a little pub called “Beggar’s Bush” where she met Liz, a fellow American also in search of a beer.  The two bought their very first Guinness pints, and the rest was history.

After taking the Guinness factory tour a combined twelve times, learning to chug a Smithwick’s in 20 seconds flat, and miraculously boot and rallying at the Old Jameson Distillery, the two women returned to the States - happy to be home, but never losing their thirst for the drink.

After college, both ladies moved out West with Marley doing Teach for America in the deserts of Arizona and Liz educating youngsters about nutrition as part of AmeriCorps in San Francisco. Recently, both have moved east again, with Marley being a part of the K Street scene in DC, and Liz canuck-ing up North in Montreal.

Most recently, Liz is in Rome working for U.N. while Marlz explores America stateside. We promise to bring you along as we discover a new city every post, a new beer every day, and to never stop exploring. So grab your cameras and your koozies, and join us as we travel land and sea in pursuit of the perfect buzz. 

Slainte!
