Ahead of International Women’s Day, on March 8, Five Points Brewery will be hosting a Women in Beer panel series at The Pembury, London, to celebrate the representation of women within the industry and launch its new Straight Up Pale, a collaboration with Honest Brew.
The panel will be hosted by Duvel marketing manager and beer sommelier, Natalya Watson; brewing professor Rachel Sutherland; head brewer at Burnt Mill Brewery and founder of International Women’s Collaborative Brew Days (IWCBD), Sophie De Ronde; Honest Brew’s art director, Britney Beeby; and Charlotte Owen, head of customer experience at Honest Brew. There will be discussions exploring the challenges and journeys women brewers, writers and professors have faced in the industry.
Five Points is partnering with female-led charity Rosa. All proceeds from ticket sales and the Five Points raffle (with generous prizes) will support initiatives set up to benefit women and girls in the UK.
During the talk, guests can sip on Straight Up Pale, which is packed with dry-hopped Amarillo, Simcoe and Citra, bursting with citrus and tropical notes.
Ed Mason, co-founder and managing director of The Five Points Brewing Company, said: “The Pembury Tavern is committed to the local and wider community, and we’re proud to be the hub that brings people together to celebrate women in the industry, while also raising awareness of a great charity, Rosa.”
Tickets are priced at £5, available from Eventbrite, and including a free pint of Straight Up Pale.
