Stoddards

What a night! Crafty Bastards author Lauren Clark joined Girls Pint Out and the Boston Area Beer Enthusiasts Society (BABES) at Stoddard’s Fine Food and Ale last night in Boston to celebrate women who brew beer (and women who love beer). The taps were flowing with beer and cider brewed by women as attendees mingled and chatted with many of the brewers in the crowd. Lauren addressed the beer lovers by sharing a few of her favorite facts and anecdotes from Crafty Bastards before raising her glass to those who brewed the contents within!

The crowd at Stoddard’s tasted the following beer and cider brewed by women:

Wormtown Brewery Pale Ale for ALS

Pretty Things American Darling

Cape Cod Beer Czech Pilsener

Samuel Adams Brewery’s Honey Queen Braggot

Bantam Cider’s Rojo

It was all agreed that this was probably the first time in history that there was an event like that – and that it should absolutely NOT be the last. As Lauren yelled from the balcony last night: “THESE BROADS KICK ASS!”

Editors Note: We weren’t the only ones that left the party totally inspired. Kerry Bryne of the Boston Herald re-established his beer column this week, and guess what his first subject was? The state of women in craft beer here in Boston, complete with a run-down of who he considers some of the most influential women in beer today. Read it here!
