I generally spend my lunch break having a read of some of the ‘trashier’ news outlets online (a guilty pleasure!) and this story caught my eye.
As a female beer drinker (and CAMRA) member I’m conflicted by this.
Is it patronising to say women need their own beers or is it simply a good way of introducing different beers to a new audience?
Generally, anything to encourage more people to sample real ales and craft beer can only be a good idea. But as someone who is keen for equality I just don’t feel targeting it specifically at woman is the right way to do it.
Maybe instead a campaign aimed at younger drinkers or just those who have never sampled any different beers would be a better way.
