Women Only Nights in the Craft Beer Industry

Girls Only Nights & Women Only Nights are changing the industry and giving women the opportunity to experience craft beer in a totally different way.

Women Only Nights in the Craft Beer Industry

What is a Women Only Night?

Women Only Nights are totally different from Ladies Night. Ladies Night gives women discounts on entrance or drinks or both, but men are still allowed in. Women Only Nights give women the opportunity to be completely by themselves giving the night a totally different dynamic than when the sexes mingle.

Women Only Nights vary from place to place. It could be an informal night when ladies can just come out for a drink with their girlfriends or they can be a structured event like a Women’s Only beer tasting/beer education seminar.

Why Do Women Need Women Only Nights?

There are two main reasons. The first being that women feel physically safer in a drinking environment when men are not around. There is also less pressure to drink to excess to impress.

The second, much like the argument for separate sex schools, girls feel more comfortable when boys aren’t part of the equation. They express their opinions more, learn better and feel more free to be themselves.

Who Are These Beer Drinking Ladies?

Well there are groups like the Society of Beer Drinking Ladies in Toronto, She’s Crafty YGK in Kingston, or Barley’s Angels with chapters all over the world, but some breweries like The Flagship Brewing Company (above video) are just deciding to have Women-Only events on their own. Talk to your favourite local craft brewery and see if it is something they’d be interested in hosting. It could be a lot of fun for you and open them up to a whole new audience. It is especially great for International Women’s Day (which will be serving up the collaborations of Women’s Brew) which is coming up in March.

 

Are You a Planning a Woman’s Only Night?

We want to hear about it! Feel free to write a guest post about it and send it to us! We’d love to post it on JustBeer for all to see. If you know of a Woman Only Night happening around you, shoot us a Facebook message, and we will add it to our events page.
