Women in Beer & Cider Week

Beerhouses Presents Women in Beer & Cider Week

From 20th April 2020 across our pubs.

For Women in Beer & Cider week we are celebrating the wonderful beers & ciders from brewers and cidermakers who are run by, brewed, made by or driven by women.

Here at Beerhouses we are fully behind having a diverse an offering delivering taste & quality to as diverse an audience as possible. We are definitely of the opinion that sexism is bad for business, brewing, pubs or otherwise and always have been.

So to celebrate the great women who work in beer & cider (including our own super dedicated and award-winning managers, cellar managers, head office & pub staff) we have decided to dedicate as many of our handpulls, keg lines, cider lines and fridges to the those producers whose women play a leading role for a whole week.
We have teamed up with Mallinsons to produce a beer, made in collaboration with three of our women managers that will be on sale at each of our venues and also in the process of putting together some other events that will highlight and promote the quality that is available.

Keep an eye out for events as we announce them as well as beer & cider lists as they get confirmed and since we want this to be an inclusive celebration if anyone out there wants to suggest brewers, beers, ciders or events then please don’t hesitate to get in touch via
