Birmingham’s Craft Beer Festival is taking place from 5pm on Thursday, November 10th to 10pm on Saturday, November 12th and the organiser has said he is hoping to see more women and students raising their glasses at the event.
The festival will be held at Six Eight Kafe, where they will be showcasing the best of locally brewed beers, including Burning Soul and Fixed Wheel to mention a few.
They have taken a different approach to try to encourage more women and students to come along. Organiser Joss Nicholls said:
“We are hoping to see more students at the event and getting more women to come along is definitely something we have taken into account”
Trying to avoid the stereotype associated with beer, they have taken to social media to promote their event as well as creating a venue that is more welcoming to everyone, with mood lighting and a chilled environment.
The event will witness blogger appearances at the relaunch including, ‘Midlands Beer Blog’ and ‘Full To The Brum.’
TV newsreader and beer blogger @BeerBeauty, Marverine Cole said:
“Beer is a great alternative to traditional female drinks such as wine, vodka and gin as it has less percentage and therefore less calories.”
She went on to say, she would love to see a selection a different craft beers at the event.
Tickets to the festival cost £3.66 and include your first beer. They are available to buy online at EventBrite or alternatively on the door.
