In response to the continual sidelining of women in the craft beer industry, the ladies of Brewdog decided to take matters into their own hands. On January 28th only the women staff will be locking themselves in and brewing a beer “worthy of any BrewDog tap … a secret recipe for a beer we’d love to drink”
The ladies of Brewdog, or #BrewBirds, have decided to make 2013 the year women begin to take the helms of craft brewing.
“We are tired of being told that our beverage of choice is not for us, of being offered a mediocre wheat beer with a slice of orange when we ask at the bar what beer they’d recommend.” Preach ladies!
Arrival: TBA (UK Only)
