Episode 46 – Chalonda White aka AfroBeerChick

Sometimes I get so myopic in talking with women who work in breweries that I forget the media side of beer! (Mea culpa.)

But not today, my friends. This episode highlights one of the coolest beer bloggers/social media mavens out there. I’m talking about Chalonda White, the titular AfroBeerChick. Not only is her blog one of the most stylish I’ve ever seen, it’s also engaging and honest.

I’m so glad she’s the guest this week. I need to prioritize Chicago on my beer travels list. Especially so I get out to 18th Street Brewery, makers of her desert island beer. Follow her everywhere online, folks.

Episode 25 – Dani Neal of Beer & Sexism

We’ve all been there, whether it’s a beer festival, a pub/bar, or a bottle shop. The inappropriate comments, the patronizing attitude, the disbelief that you, a woman, loves and knows about beer. It’s irritating, infuriating, and frankly, we are tired of it.

Dani Neal, one of the founders and creators of Beer and Sexism, a website that tells the stories of women who work in beer, is my guest this week. This subject is especially relevant given the recent backlash against sexist beer labels and because of the BA’s strong stance supporting women and minorities from problematic behaviour. Beer and Sexism posts those stories to drive change in the industry. I love that this website exists, and as a result, this is a great interview about an timely subject.

Let’s hear your feedback about your own experiences as a woman in beer. Check out their website to share your story.
