About Me

Otto & Millie (no, not short for Milwaukee… but I’ll take it!)

Hi there! Thanks so much for stopping by my little corner of the world. Encantada.

So, to introduce myself, I suppose. My name is Samantha, and I guess I describe myself as a late-twenties Milwaukee boomerang after being away from the city for 7 years (eek!). Life has taken interesting twists and turns over the past few years since I graduated from UW-Milwaukee and I find myself back to where my adulthood started, except this time, I can legally drink.

Blogging has been a hobby of mine ever since I studied abroad in Spain when my alter ego became Samantha En Route and has stayed that way ever since. Travel became and still is my passion but these days I’m #adulting and travel is not as spontaneous as it used to be. However, I still love writing and connecting with people in a personal and unique way as they stare at their screens. As I begin my new life in Milwaukee, I wanted to bring back that old passion.

So, Brew City Babe was born. My goal for this site is to promote Milwaukee from a female perspective, show how much love this city has to offer, and, of course, drink a couple brewskis. (BTW check out the Espresso Amber at Urban Harvest Brewing Co. You’re welcome.)

Thanks again for joining me (and Otto & Millie) as I bring you to my corner of Milwaukee.

xoxo, Samantha

Welcome to Brew City Babe!

Hello, good people of Milwaukee!

I kind of consider myself the new girl in town. After getting my degree from UW-Milwaukee in 2013 and moving away, I’m back for good in my favorite city, rediscovering everything that Milwaukee has to offer.

Milwaukee is an amazing, international, hipster, female-friendly, festival-crazy, foodie, lake-loving, artsy-fartsy city that welcomes all walks of life. From the burning hot summer concerts to the 3 feet of snow I had on my 21st birthday eve, I wouldn’t change a thing about it.

But, truly, this site is dedicated to the ladies of Milwaukee. You get to live life through my eyes (so lucky, right?) and experience food, drinks, fun, and more in Brew City! My goal for this site is to show off Milwaukee from the mind of a late-twenties lady (and her two cats). So, I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoy writing about it!

xoxo, Samantha
