Women and Beer
The golden haired 27 year-old President & Co-Founder of Golden Road Brewing in Atwater Village began her career in the male-dominated beer industry working as a regional sales manager for Oskar Blues Brewery.
She helped inspire northern California beer culture by organizing San Francisco Beer Week and the 2011 Craft Brewers Conference. She is now the youngest female brewery owner in the world.
How many women out there serve as president of the oldest homebrewing club in the country? Well, there could only be one – and that is Nancy Gold.
I’d venture to say there are few women in the world that can claim they’ve been brewing beer professionally for nearly a quarter of a century. Before brewing was all the rage, Teri was a grain handling, wort boiling, carboy carrying, yeast pitching, beer fermenting, woman, in a male-dominated industry.
“My sister, your grain – its beer is tasty, my comfort..” - Song of Songs; Sumeria, 2100 B.C.
Yep, you read that right. B.C. The creation of beer is credited to women!
