Edinburgh-based Beers Without Beards has released tickets for its Women in Beer Seminar, part of the second running of the Women in Beer Festival (WiB Fest).
The seminar, complete with talks and tastings, will take place on 21st October. It will address various topics linked to the problems faced by the modern-day beer industry.
Discussions will range the actions taken after the ‘beer #metoo’ movement to talks about the challenges faced by breweries when they decide to scale up.
The all-day event will showcase some of the most talented female and non-binary professionals in the industry. Beer tastings centred on modern lager or on yeast and its expression in beer styles will complete the day.
Amélie Tassin, founder of Beers Without Beards and WIB Fest, said: “For this year’s edition of the festival, I wanted to create a safe space where women and non-binary folk can talk about and showcase their work, but also discuss the issues facing our industry.”
The event will be held at the Moonwake Beer Co Taproom in Leith, a brewery known for its stance on inclusivity and diversity. As a brewery, it believes there is a beer out there for everyone, and it aims to make its beers accessible to anyone, regardless of their background.
Sarah Sinclair, marketing manager at Moonwake and a guest speaker at the seminar, said: “We designed our taproom, and brewery, to be an open and embracing space, so we’re proud to be the hosts for such a prestigious line-up of speakers, and to facilitate an important event for the beer industry as a whole.
“I’m looking forward to speaking at WiB Fest’s Women in Beer Seminar as I believe craft beer can be a tool for social change, and it’s events like these that can help empower women and non-binary people in our industry, and also grow diversity in our industry on a larger scale.”
