Beer and Woman Brigade
Our daughters' daughters will adore us
and they'll sing in grateful chorus
"Well done, Sister Suffragette!"
Greetings and good day fellow froth loving ladies of Dea Latis!
I would be honored to join your ranks, give me more information as to where I prick my finger and chant the oath, because beer and woman are a natural match. Information about our primal connection to grain transformations MUST be spread!
I am at your service.
"Named after the Celtic goddess of beer and water, Dea Latis is a group of brewers, beer tasters, publicans, writers and marketeers. What unites us is our passion for beer and a belief that it’s far too good to be enjoyed only by men.
Beer was, according to myth, a gift from a goddess to womenkind. Brewing was traditionally women’s work; in the early 18th century, three-quarters of brewers in this country were female. So why, now, is only 13% of beer drunk by women (a far lower figure than in the USA or most of Europe)? Research indicates it’s because of misconceptions about beer as ‘fattening’ (it’s not, in moderation), ‘all tasting the same’ (it doesn’t) or ‘a man’s drink’ (it doesn’t have to be).
Dea Latis aims to challenge women’s ideas about beer and present it to them in a way that encourages them to taste it. We don’t expect change to happen quickly or easily, but that’s no reason not to try.
