History on Tap at Conner Prairie

Conner Prairie Horizon Council, the young professional group associated with the interactive history park in DSC_8660.NEFFishers, is organizing the third annual History on Tap. This year the event takes place on Friday, May 30, and will feature 20 awesome local breweries.

What makes History on Tap unique from other festivals is the venue and the staff. Conner Prairie is a beautiful outdoor space with a variety of buildings, livestock, and costumed interpreters representing Indiana’s past. History on Tap takes place in and around Prairietown, and the year is 1836. You’ll have a chance to meet people who are dressed in period garb and see the world from the point of view of early 19th century America.

Ladies Who Love Beer in What’s (Traditionally) a Man’s Man’s Man’s World

Beer-Pour-Doug-Geisler

Beer-Pour-Doug-Geisler

As a woman in the world of craft beer, I enjoy the occasional perk of the ladies room line being much, much shorter than the men’s room line for a change, but also wonder how to bring about gender parity in this subculture long dominated by white dudes.

In 2008, Ginger Johnson founded Women Enjoying Beer to explore the question, “Why don’t more women enjoy beer?” Is it a question of educating more women on the wonders of craft beer? Organizations like Girls Pint Out and Barley’s Angels are working to create social clubs for women to enjoy drinking and talking about craft beer without anyone assuming anything about their tastes based on their gender.

The Pink Boots Society, which is a professional organization for women in any beer related profession, aims to provide support to their members to advance their beer careers. They also focus specifically on education to create more women who are Beer Judge Certification Program (BJCP) accredited, so that women’s palates are represented and respected at the highest level.

However, although the craft beer world is filled with more and more women every year, I hear the phrase by professional brewers, distributors, and servers, “That’s a girl beer” STILL, all the time. Folks write about how beer drinking isn’t lady-like. I personally have been sexually harassed at a local beer event. Overuse of alcohol in a predominantly male environment can lead to some really uncomfortable conversations. REALLY uncomfortable.

I created a chapter of Girls Pint Out here in New Orleans so that I could have the opportunity to meet other women who love beer, and so they would have the opportunity to meet each other. One of the first questions on the Facebook page was “BUT WHAT ABOUT THE MENS?” Dudes, no offense, but it is seriously so not about you. Although I know the reverse sexism charge is lurking right around here somewhere in the comments, the fact of the matter is, women have fewer opportunities to go and enjoy a pint by themselves (or with a couple of other women) without unwanted attention and general harassment. From dudes.

And then, there is the completely ridiculous report that the people who own the Oak Wine Bar are looking to expand into the next building to create a beer bar. Not because craft beer is growing exponentially, or that the owners enjoy it and appreciate its diversity and wish to share that with the community, but because the wine bar is too girly and we need to get some mens up in here. See? The ladies drink their wine, probably surrounded by like kittens and, um, Twilight books, and the dudes drink their beer next door while playing poker and killing bears, and the best part is that they can come together and meet in the courtyard without letting them in their sacred temples of gendered bullshit.

It just makes me so tired.

I think there are two things we can all do to make beer drinking a lot more fun and easy for everyone:

1) Never make any assumption of what beer a woman drinks or what beer a man drinks. The kind of beer (style, size, ingredients, etc.) someone drinks has absolutely no correlation to their gender. While we’re at it, just stop saying the phrase “girl beer” altogether.

2) Don’t perpetuate the caveman-esque women-as-beer-holding-sex-objects thing. From busty German chicks in lederhosen with a stein right in the cleavage to the mainstream Bud/Miller/Coors ads with women in bikinis (or shaking their heads about how manly their beer drinking men are, or screaming over a shoe closet or tiny dog), it alienates women from feeling like, you know, actual people. People who like beer. People who don’t have to explain why they like beer or have strangers come up to tell them how sexy it is that they like beer.

While I obviously have my irritations with sexist shenanigans, I will say that for the most part, in craft beer bars with the local folks, this is really not a problem. I feel respected as a beer drinker and writer. Both men and women are, 9 times out of 10, friendly, respectful, and open minded. But I do sometimes feel like I need to work twice as hard as some of my male peers to convince editors, publishers and potential clients that I actually do know my stuff.

But I love beer, and I’ll push on through and keep bringing awareness of it here and everywhere for as long as I can…to anyone who will listen.

Rock ‘n’ Pint Recap – Black Acre Brewing Co.

966846_655434604474023_286600975_o

So, what happens when you gather 50+ people on a warm day in a brewpub? Good things happen, that’s what! I can’t say enough good things about the folks at Black Acre, and of course our new friends at Girls Rock! Indianapolis. Kristen(GRI) and Holly(Black Acre)were both so easy to work with, we had such a blast raising money for Girls Rock! Indianapolis and of course,

The idea was to not only raise awareness for Girls Rock but to also raise money for their summer camp and scholarships for the girls.  Girls Rock! Indianapolis is a non-profit organization dedicated to building positive self-esteem in girls and encouraging creative expression through music. They’re providing music education programs to allow girls the opportunity to participate in an environment that fosters leadership, encourages social change, and cultivates a supportive community of female peers and mentors.  Neat, huh?

We raised money, we raised pints, we had a blast catching up with old friends and making new ones so we’re really excited for the chance to do this again. Thanks to everyone who came to say hi, donated money and supported us!

A Matter of Taste

Give me something that is both salty, sweet, hot and cold, and you have given me the perfect food. Yes, I will admit that am one of those people that dips French fries in Frosty’s. I am also someone that generally asks for the hoppiest beer on tap. This hasn’t always been the case. My taste in alcohol started off very sweet (think Mike’s Hard Raspberry Lemonade), transitioned to yellow fizz (oh the days of college and Keystone Light), and eventually became addicted to a variety of craft beer.

Tastebud Basics

The average adult has between 2,000 and 10,000 taste buds that perceive sweet, salty, sour, bitter, and potentially a fifth savory taste called umami. Salty and sour detection is needed to control salt and acid balance. Bitter detection warns of foods containing poisons. Sweet provides a guide to calorie-rich foods. Taste buds in combination with smell discern flavor.

In 7 Things You Didn’t Know About Your Taste Buds, Dr. Bartoshuk states the normal life cycle for a taste bud is 10 to 14 days. You can kill taste buds, but they grow back immediately. This is why the ability to taste does not diminish with age. Taste preferences also fluctuate with hormones. For example, the ability to taste bitterness does decline in women when menopause begins. This may be because “the taste of bitter is hardwired to be a cue for poison, early in pregnancy your brain becomes sensitized to avoid it in order to guard your baby,” says Dr. Bartoshuk.

A Womanly Disposition

Ladies may have a step-up in choosing good beer. According to an interview conducted with Lettie Teague, The Wall Street Journal wine columnist, women are better at perceiving smells, more sensitive to bitter flavors, prefer sweet, and may notice more subtleties. This is confirmed by findings from a study conducted jointly by Danish Science Communication and food scientists from The Faculty of Life Sciences (LIFE) at University of Copenhagen on almost 9,000 children.

The Danish study showed that girls are generally better at recognizing concentrations of both sweet and sour tastes. According to Michael Bom Frøst, Associate Professor at the Department of Food Science at LIFE, the experiment showed that boys and girls have largely the same number of taste buds and it appeared that what makes the difference is the way in which boys and girls process taste impressions. The study indicated that boys need an average of approximately 10 per cent more sourness and approximately 20 per cent more sweetness to recognize the taste. The study additionally indicated that the ability to recognize tastes increases gradually with age, and the greatest shift is seen at 13-14 years when children become markedly more sensitive to sour tastes and love of very sweet flavors decreases.

A Matter of Training

I prefer bold flavors, so you will probably won’t overhear me say, “you can really taste the oak undertones and a slight taste of cherry in the background.” But, you can train your palate to like new food by bringing out its sweetness, or by adding something fatty.

People also are influenced by social cues, such as eating a certain food with someone else who really enjoys it, or with someone whom you admire and like. If your friends have good taste, then you also are encouraged to have good taste.

While women naturally may naturally be more sensitive to certain flavors, cultivating taste requires exposure. Nutrition experts advise parents to try expose their children to new flavors, and research shows that it can take as many as 10 to 15 tastes before a child will learn to appreciate a new flavor. These same theories can be applied to training your palate to drink certain beers.

So the more beer you taste, with a group of people you like, the better your palate is trained? Sounds like we have our work cut out for us, ladies.

The Festival, Worcester MA, June 23 & 24

festival-poster-2

Hi friends! Selena and I from Massachusetts GPO are heading up the volunteer side of a very exciting festival coming to Worcester, MA. The Festival is presented by 12% Imports and Shelton Brothers and features over 60 brewers from all over the world. Some information from the press release is below but first, some special insider information. :)

Markku Pulliainen from is coming to the US during Philly Beer Week to brew Sahti with Scott Morrison of Dock Street Brewing. The Sahti will be served at The Festival, which is really exciting. Markku is from Huvila Brewery in Finland. Sahti is a traditional beer from Finland made from a variety of grains, malted and unmalted, including barley, rye, wheat, and oats; sometimes bread made from these grains is fermented instead of malt itself. Traditionally the beer is flavored with juniperberries in addition to, or instead of, hops; the mash is filtered through juniper twigs through a trough shaped tun called a kuurna in Finnish. Sahti has a distinct banana flavor due to the production of isoamylacetate by the yeast. Sahti is a top-fermented brew (ale), and while baking yeast has been used traditionally, ale yeast may also be used in fermenting. (Thanks, Wikipedia!) There are a few other specialty brews that will be at The Festival, so keep an eye on the blog over there.

Authors Joshua Bernstein and Christian Debenedetti will both be at The Festival signing books. I got the chance to meet Joshua here in town a few months back and I keep going back to Brewed Awakening as a reference guide to some breweries, many of which will be at The Festival in June. I’m excited to pick up Christian’s book, The Great American Ale Trail and get reading in the next couple of weeks.

12% Imports and Shelton Brothers have partnered to present a unique international festival focused on artisanal brewers, as well as cider and mead makers.   We aren’t just throwing the words ‘unique’ or ‘artisanal’ around lightly here.  We specialize in importing small-batch products, from tiny producers, in far-off places, in very small quantities.   Never before has any festival in the U.S. featured such a broad array of traditional drinks from across the globe.  That alone is unique, but what’s even more special about The Festival is that the people who create these beers, ciders, and meads will actually be on hand to pour them!  Every single producer will be there: more than sixty different artisans, bringing over three-hundred different beers, ciders, and meads!  We have producers traveling from as far away as Japan and New Zealand – all told, more than a dozen countries will be represented at The Festival.

Location: Mechanics Hall, 321 Main Street, Worcester MA 01608

Session 1:  Saturday, 23 June, 12pm – 4pm

Session 2:  Saturday, 23 June, 5:30pm – 9:30pm

Session 3:  Sunday, 24 June, 12pm – 5pm

Cost: Each individual session is $60; a weekend pass for all three sessions is $160.

Tickets are available at:  www.thefestival2012.eventbrite.com

What If Girls Acted Like Guys In A Bar?

This new short clip from director Jay Diaz takes a typical Friday night out and flips it on it’s head.

What if girls acted like guys in a bar? What if girls had to wait in line to enter a trendy spot and guys got to roll on past the velvet ropes? What if girls hit on guys the way guys hit on girls and guys acted like girls?

My personal favorite line? “It’s a taco fest in here.”
