Craft Beer’s New Era with Brienne Allan
Welcome back to another installment of Born On 3rd with this week’s guest Brienne Allan. Brienne is an entrepreneur, brewer, and beer industry advocate. She’s ignited a movement within the craft beer industry, calling to end sexism, sexual harassment, assault and discrimination.
In this episode, Brienne addresses misconceptions revolving around the beer industry – putting an end to the illusion that it is male-dominated. She brings to light the inequities women face in the industry; from needing twice the experience and education compared to their male counterparts to tolerating condescending behavior. Brienne has also led the industry into a new era of inclusion and equal opportunity, opening the doors to people of all walks of life.
- The Craft Brewery industry that appears to be male dominated is a façade. More often than not there are women in the background running the industry with little to no credit.
- Hold brewing companies accountable of their actions. In light of BLM and the Me Too movement, cases have come to the surface and it is in our control as consumers to hold breweries accountable.
- Diversity, inclusion, and representation in the craft brewing industry is monumental in its continued growth.
