On this week’s episode of Brewbound Frontlines, David and Carmen Favela, the co-owners of San Diego-based Border X Brewing, will discuss their collaboration with the Mujeres Brew Club on a new taproom project aimed at empowering female brewers.
Heavy Seas Beer CEO Dan Kopman joins the panel to discuss the state of the industry nearly four months into the COVID-19 crisis.
Carmen Favela and Esthela Davila started Mujeres Brew Club as a way to bring together Latina women interested in craft beer for a monthly discussion and educational session. The club and Border X will open the Mujeres Brew House, a taproom that will pour beers developed by the club’s members and collaboration beers developed by Border X.
The Favelas will discuss how projects such as the Mujeres Brew House can make craft beer more accessible for groups underrepresented in an industry made up of primarily white men.
Kopman, who joined Heavy Seas as CEO in 2017 and sits on the Beer Institute’s board of directors, will discuss how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected his brewery and share insights gleaned from his career in the beer industry. Before joining Heavy Seas, Kopman co-founded Saint Louis, Missouri-based Schlafly Beer and served as a member of the Brewers Association’s board of directors.
We’ll discuss how craft brewers can weather the current storm, the role of trade associations in these turbulent times and much more.
