Ashley Routson

Ashley Routson is our Beer Editor at PALATE PRESS: The Online Wine Magazine. She is the blogger behind The Beer Wench.

Ashely is head over heels for beer, in love with the bitter, flavorful taste of pure hops. So much, in fact, that she has eaten actual hops.

For all of you literalists out there, Ashley is not a real beer wench. The Urban Dictionary defines beer wench as both:

1. A voluptuous female pirate type woman, usually with a fiery attitude, and usually seen around taverns and bars, seaside fishing towns, and wherever pirates roam.

2. A scantily clad girl, hired for an hourly fee (eg. AU$65) to wait hand and foot on groups of thirsty Australian cricket fans, allowing them to enjoy the cricket, which can last for up to 5 days.

Ashley is neither voluptuous or not scantly clad, and is DEFINITELY NOT a beer servant for men. However, she most certainly has a fiery attitude and can definitely be found in taverns and bars as well as around seaside fishing towns … and wherever pirates may roam!
