First Draft With Hey, Brewtiful's Jessica Miller

Before starting Hey, Brewtiful, a website that serves up "a woman's view of brewing and beer," Jessica Miller wasn't actually a big beer drinker. That is until the Kennesaw resident tried some of her hometown brewery's product.

"Before Burnt Hickory, I didn't really pay much attention to beer," Miller says. "I spent plenty of time with wine, and made my rounds of the wineries in North Georgia. My husband had been brewing for about a year at home, so I was interested in the mechanics of it. We discovered Burnt Hickory Brewery, and the beers they were putting out really piqued my interest. Once I started reading, learning, and tasting more, I was hooked."

After falling for craft brew, Miller started Hey, Brewtiful as "a kind of research project and much-needed creative outlet." The middle-school-English-teacher-turned-stay-at-home-mom required something to complement her motherly duties. "I'm the kind of person who really thrives off work," Miller says.

Since then, the 33-year-old writer and photographer has parlayed her beer interests into design work for Red Brick while attending beer events and visiting breweries on the regular.
