On this episode we’re discussing the history of women in beer and uncovering the truth about whether or not women dominated brewing until they were accused of being witches. If you listened to the podcast's debut episode discussing the history of beer in ancient cultures, you know that women were some of the first brewers. I chat with Dr. Christina Wade, historian, archaeologist, president of the Ladies Craft Beer Society of Ireland, co-host of the Beer Ladies Podcast and founder of the project Braciatrix, latin for “brewster” and “alewife,” which digs deep into the history of women in beer. Also I review a few beers brewed by women here in my home of Los Angeles from Eagle Rock Brewery and Highland Park Brewery.
