In 2018, Grace Weitz conceptualized the first Beers With(out) Beards as part of her graduate school thesis capstone project at NYU. Over the past four years, this celebration of women in beer has grown to attract thousands of attendees and showcased over sixty women-led breweries. Grace started BW(O)B to create a space where everyone felt welcome to show up, taste amazing beers, and cultivate conversations around how to break through barriers. And now more than ever, we need Beers With(out) Beards.
The fifth annual Beers With(out) Beards takes pride in representing women and femme-identifying folks in the beer industry. And this year, we feel especially empowered by those who have also had the courage to speak up about the importance of equity and inclusion in craft beer. Together, everyone’s voice is stronger.
Join us on Saturday, April 9th, 2022 at Brick South in Portland, ME to celebrate the achievements of women in craft beer. All are welcome at the festival, and you’ll be able to enjoy beer from thirty-five-plus breweries that are either women-owned or owned by femme-identifying people, or that have women or femme-identifiying people in prominent leadership positions.
