Beer for girls

I am a girl (well, woman) and I like beer. Some girls don’t like beer. That is fine, it’s your choice and I’m not going to force it down your throats with a funnel.

It’s just that the stereotype of the typical beer consumer riles me. My belief (and this is not backed up by science) is that girls they are told they don’t like beer, and therefore don’t drink it. This is enforced by social norms, and the fact that most beer is not marketed to girls (18+) or designed to appeal to their tastes.

But girls, rejoice! Because beer culture is growing in its diversity and it is thinking of you. Here are some beers that I have tried and thought: “Some girls might like these even if they normally don’t like beer!”

I would love to hear your feedback. Have you tried any of these beers or do you have any others to recommend? You can comment below or on my facebook page here: www.facebook.com/beertruths/

One thought on “Beer for girls

  1. Great blog, I found since I moved to the UK I’ve started to have Guinness as my go to drink. A drink that in the past I always thought was too heavy and intense for me. But i guess this has a lot to do with advertising as well. Would be great to read more about this topic x
