A new range of beer aimed at women & the reprise of the female brewers

A group of women at the top of Britain’s burgeoning brewery industry have developed a range of seven beers designed to appeal particularly to women, (and men)!

The Revisionist Beer range consists of ‘old world’ continental beer styles, such as Belgian Saison and a German wheat beer, to ‘new world’ beer flavours like an American Rye Pale Ale, a Californian Common Steam beer and a Red Ale.

It is only in modern times that men have overtaken women as the main brewers of beer, as historically it was women who dominated brewing.

Beer is increasingly replacing wine for women amid successful efforts to introduce brews with sophisticated and subtle flavours. Do you agree?

The beers are being produced by the leading independent brewery Marstons with the help of the head of its supply chain Emma Gilleland, who is now perhaps the single most influential brewer in the UK, presiding over 60 ales across five breweries.

Increasing numbers of women are enjoying beer these days

Marston’s 28-year-old brewmaster, Genevieve Upton, worked with Emma on the Revisionist range and created one of the beers herself – a California Common Steam beer.

Increasing numbers of women are enjoying beer these days – and in particular lighter, refreshing brews – so it’s natural that many are now entering the beer industry and are helping influence current trends.’
