Why Join Us?

The brewing industry in the US is overwhelmingly white and male. We exist to promote diversity and inclusion in the industry, as well as provide a safe, non-judgmental space to ask questions and expand our knowledge about beer and brewing.

Brewing beer has historically been women’s work. As of 2019 female drinkers under 25 are growing to outnumber male drinkers under 25, with women comprising 25% of all craft beer drinkers, according to the Brewer’s Association.

Barley’s Angels exists to increase the involvement of women and under-represented folk in the craft beer industry.
