Dismiss the stereotype of the bearded brewer. It’s women who’ve brewed beer throughout history. Their role as family and village brewer lasted for thousands of years—through Mesopotamian civilization, Cleopatra and US colonization. There are more American breweries now than ever and women serve as founder, CEO or head brewer at more than 1,000. Learn how relevant women are to beer as they work for equity and recognition in the industry.
