Brought to Task

...s I challenge you back: Tell me how progress can be made by calling women ‘girls.’ No such thing. Calling women girls lessens their full value as human beings. It doesn’t help reduce domestic violence, it doesn’t help reduce battery, it doesn’t help reduce the symptoms of the 23% wage gap, it doesn’t help get rid of the rampant objectification of women everywhere. Go ahead – tell me it’s okay to call yourself a girl and then want to be treated wit...

An Open Letter To Female Beer Enthusiasts

...ere to judge – we’re here to get people to re/think], Chicks who Dig Beer, Girls Pint Out (does your research show how women feel about being called Girls?) [yes, it does – see above]. My point is that there are lots of smart, savvy women craft beer enthusiasts who are taking back these labels, names etc. and many women are happy to join them.” [So be it. While this may be true, it dismisses the millions of women who aren’t active in the pursuit o...

Adding beer to the ingredient list is a beerific way to utilize beer you may not drink otherwise. Think: end of the growler, flat, remains of...

Response and Clarification

...rvice industry. The Melting Pot, for example, ran a smashingly successful “Girls Night Out” promo in 2009, a time when most casual-priced restaurants like it were suffering. It resulted in a sales uptick that gave the brand a little reprieve from dropping numbers.” Great and so be it. Good for the Melting Pot. It may resonate, but so does an out of tune violin. Was it a sustainable uptick or a one time deal? Did the “girls” come back? Was it a 1%...

31 Facets of Women & Beer: Facet #10

...c and smart business idea to offer at least 2 sizes of beer servings: half pint & pint, 10 ounce & 16 ounce, or whatever combination you decide on. One brewpub I know of offers a ‘taste’ for 75 cents. Brilliant! Little 3 ounce pour, just enough to get a good taste and whet their whistle inexpensively. It’s a good choice for all patrons too – not just women. Many people still think all beers should be served and consumed cold (another myth to bust)...

...or of disrespect. Women & females are appropriate and full respect titles; girls are girls and they are different. It’s easy to get it right. He got it wrong. Next, it was never ‘fine’ and has never been fine nor will it ever be fine. He’s telling the world that it’s okay to disrespect, dismiss, and in general dis women outright and accept and welcome the ‘frat party’ humor that reduces us all. Mr. Adamson needs to work at a women’s abuse shelter...

ABC’s of Women And Beer: Letter G

...in the longer term as well as the short-term. Repeat. Time for the tapered pint to take a break Glassware for beer is often the least optimum: the tapered shaker pint. For establishments it’s long been an issue of economy. It’s one of the most inexpensive glasses. And sometimes the lowest quality as well. I’d challenge the establishments with this query then: If they believe the beer to be high quality, if they want the customer to have an optimum...

DO NOT trade out sex for intelligence. Men don’t call themselves the Dick Drinkers, Beer for Boys, or other gender labeled titles…why would women subject themselves to these titles??

How To Put Together A Women’s Beer Group

...nigrating or less-than-full-respect terms for women & beer: babes, broads, girls, chicks, and all other ilk of slang terminology holds everyone – and beer – back. A regular schedule is in order to get any sort of momentum. Whether you design a 3 part series or year round program, hold it consistently – day wise, time wise, location wise. Consistency builds brands. Charge guests for it. Part of the value proposition includes monetizing the educatio...

Why do I do what I do? Because crap like this is inexcusable. And that’s what it is: crap. Don’t you dare stand or sit for it. Please don’t patronize or support businesses of any sort that allow and therefore perpetuate and support backwards sexist thinking. You put up wit...

What you have to be aware and cognizant and thoughtful of is the perception of others and how they interpret the title you choose. Women will give you a stamp of approval when you address them properly If you choose Women or Females, you can be safely respectfu...
