    Next weekend the 'Beers without Beards' club is hosting a Women in Beer Festival across several breweries and pubs. There are also all kinds of talks from 'Meet the Brewer' to 'Identifying Off Flavours' and one on home brewing. I am part of the panel of the home brewing talk. I'm nowhere near Edinburgh so I am not part of the club, but I was very happy when the call came out for women homebrewers to make a day of it. Getting on a very very early train with my husband, and then pretty much drinking beer all day and taking a late train home.

    Should be a nice festival in general, so folks should check it out :beer1:

    Have a great day. I hope you make some in roads into what is a very male dominated hobby.

    Best wishes for a successful event. athumb.. sue from the Waen brewery made IMO the best porter i've ever had. Chilli plum porter & she did a lush coconut beer.

    p.s. I'm not a huge fan of beards, as my attempts at one always turn out pants. :laugh8:

    We had a great day. It was about 30 people, with both women and men in the audience, all enthusiastic to start/continue home brewing with more confidence. We all drank beer as we talked. Lovely. Very fun day.
