The comment I wrote to this article that quoted a winemaker saying that men like craft beer and women like wine.

While it is true that women enjoy wine and men enjoy craft beer, the same is very much true if one reverses the gender preferences. As founder of Beer for Babes, New Jersey’s original women-in-beer group, and the historian for the Pink Boots Society, an international organization for women in the brewing industry (counting almost 1000 members and growing), I feel compelled to counter this pervasive yet mercifully shrinking stereotype. I will be reaching out to Rich Heritage, who is always very gracious when I reach out to him for comment on an article about the OCP, to invite him to incorporate a female-focused component to his craft-beer offerings. To any woman interested in learning more about local craft beer events, please visit the website http://www.beerforbabes.org.
