Women were first to harness the power of fermentation during the era of our species’ cultural transition from hunters and gatherers to a more agrarian model. Only later, would brewing become a male-dominated craft with monasteries becoming focal points of beer production. In today’s craft beer scene, we see more and more women taking leadership positions in the brewing industry and the North Shore Craft Beer Scene is a glowing example of this resurgence.
In their fourth and final installment of the North Shore Craft Beer Roundtable series, The Duluth Experience will host a 5-person panel discussion that will highlight the unique character of the North Shore Craft Beer Scene and the roles that women have played (and are playing) in moving the local craft beer community to the forefront of the industry as a whole. Moderator Elissa Hansen (Barley’s Angels Duluth/Superior Chapter) will facilitate a discussion that will delve into the challenges and opportunities for women in the industry, the trends for craft beer as a whole, and the personal stories of these influential women in the local and regional craft beer scene.
Moderated by: Elissa Hansen – Barley’s Angels Duluth/Superior Chapter
- Allyson Rolph – Thirsty Pagan Brewing
- Jamie MacFarlane – Castle Danger Brewing
- Liz Gleason – Carmody Irish Pub & Brewery
- Laura Mullen – Bent Paddle Brewing Co.
- Melissa Rainville – Fitger’s Brewhouse
The Women of the North Shore Craft Beer Scene will be held from 1-2pm at Duluth’s Teatro Zuccone in the Zeitgeist Arts Building at 222 East Superior Street on June 22nd.
