Hop Culture Announces Beers With(Out) Beards Festival in Portland, ME.


Support The Most Badass Women In the Beer Industry
BRICK SOUTH THOMPSON’S POINT / PORTLAND, MAINE
SATURDAY, APRIL 9TH 2022
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 showcase over sixty women-led breweries. Additionally, the fest has featured over thirty-five events highlighting the achievements of women across all aspects of the alcoholic beverage industries. 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.

Celebrate American Craft Beer Week May 10-16

Support America’s small and independent craft breweries through on-premise purchases
What
The 15th annual American Craft Beer Week returns May 10-16. The national beer holiday, hosted by the Brewers Association (BA) – the not-for-profit trade association dedicated to small and independent American craft brewers – encourages beer lovers to visit their local taprooms, brewpubs, and breweries to purchase beer, whether for on-premise enjoyment, to-go, or delivery.

When
May 10-16, 2021

Where
At local independent craft breweries to support American Craft Beer Week.

Why
Following a tumultuous year with on-premise sales dropping double digits, this year’s holiday honors the creativity, community, and resiliency of America’s small and independent craft breweries by reminding beer lovers that “local beer is better.” As loyal community supporters, many craft breweries responded quickly to the pandemic by producing hand sanitizer for local first responders and collaborating to raise funds for frontline and hospitality workers. Of legal drinking age adults in the U.S., 85% live within 10 miles of a brewery, and craft breweries serve as community gathering places and job creators – providing more than 138,000 direct full and part-time jobs in 2020.
