Hop Culture is pleased to announce Beers Without Beards, the world's largest women's beer fest.

Hop Culture Magazine is pleased to announce Beers Without Beards Week, the world’s largest celebration of women in the beer industry. Taking place in New York City from August 7th to August 12th, the week will feature panels, tap takeovers, and beer dinners, all culminating in festival featuring 20+ of the best female-run breweries in the country. Come meet the brewers from Black Project Spontaneous and Wild Ales (Denver, CO), Triple Crossing Brewing (Richmond, VA), Garrison City Beerworks (Dover, NH), and more! You’ll also have the opportunity to participate in beer trivia, and listen to a panel with Theresa McCulla, historian of American Brewing at the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, and connect with hundreds of other men and women interested in celebrating craft beer.

“As a woman, I often found my plundering into the cave of craft beer to be a solitary spelunking adventure,” said Grace Weitz, Marketing Manager for Hop Culture and the person behind Beers Without Beards. “While I never felt ostracized for being clean shaven, I did feel unrecognized. A question occurred to me: Could this change? And could I help?”

The final event in the week is the Beers Without Beards Festival, which will take place at The Well in Brooklyn during one session from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM. At the festival, you’ll get unlimited pours from attending breweries, as well as some very danceable music, food from female vendors, and Hop Culture’s collectible merch, designed by British artist Sam Taylor.
