In Case You Missed Virtual Happy Hour

It started out as a simple question that Brienne Allan, a brewer at Notch Brewing, posed on her Instagram page (@ratmagnet): "Have you ever experience sexism in the beer industry?" What followed was nothing short of a Bevolution.  From all over the world, people wrote in to share stories and express support for one another.

Now Allan, along with other brewers, are keeping the momentum going with Brave Noise, a collaborative beer meant to honor those who have spoken out about their gender discrimination, racism, sexual assault, and harassment and to bring further awareness to the issues that women, BIPOC, and LGBTQ+ individuals face in craft beer.

Last night, Hop Culture Founder Kenny Gould (@hopcultureken) invited Allan to Untappd's Virtual Happy Hour to dive into the origin of @ratmagnet, share who has inspired her in the brewing industry, and talk about how she hopes to continue striving for a more equitable, just, and inclusive craft beer world.
