Chester Brewhouse & Kitchen hold femALE brewery experience

A microbrewery in Chester hosted a special FemALE Brewery Experience Day to celebrate International Women’s Day.

Brewhouse & Kitchen, who are based on Love Street in Chester, brought together some of Chester’s most extraordinary women for an all-female brewing experience to mark International Women’s Day.

Eight women spent the day creating their own special beers and celebrating the annual event. Guests including The Lord Mayor of Chester, Councillor Razia Daniels, Amie Piper from Marketing Cheshire and Briony Wilson from Taste Cheshire were all in attendance and  were involved in brewing a range of exotic beers.

The beers which were brewed will be available for the public to taste for themselves at the microbrewery in two weeks’ time.

Amy Daniel, Marketing Manager for Brewhouse & Kitchen Chester, hosted the event and said: “It was wonderful to accommodate some of Chester’s most talented and independent females, who perfectly epitomise why Independent Women’s Day is such an important event in the calendar.

“All our female attendees enjoyed several hours of brewing, eating and celebrating each other’s successes. They discussed ways to motivate and unite friends, colleagues and whole communities in Chester to become more gender inclusive and even walked away with a Brewhouse & Kitchen certificate as evidence of their new-found brewing prowess.”

Judy Tagell, Marketing Manager at CH1ChesterBID, added: “The FemALE Brewery Experience was a wonderful event, celebrating the achievements women have made throughout history and across nations.

“Typically, brewing is a male dominated industry, so to see a local Chester business take a national celebration and put their own twist on it was great to see.”
