Now as I start this off, I want to clarify that I am talking about all women with different complexions and cultural backgrounds.... With that being said.... Over the years I have found myself either being the only woman or the only black woman or person of color in the brewery. Now days in Houston there's more of a variety at the breweries, but when I go to other states, that's another story.
When I'm at home in H-town I love to visit our breweries, they are very chill when they see me there and are ready to talk my ear off about beer and flavors. I still find myself to be the only black woman there most of the time, but I'm still excited when I see my light skinned sistas in there. Apparently a lot of women don't like beer. I look at it like this, if I tried gumbo for the 1st time and whoever made it sucked at making gumbo I pretty much will probably say that I don't like gumbo. I'm definitely that person who believes in trying new things at least twice, by at least 2 different people/breweries before you're firm on something that I don't like. There are so many delicious beers out there to try that women would probably like, whether you like fruity, or chocolate flavors to rich caramels and coconut beers, with real ingredients, even meads and braggots. Anyway the diversity in Houston is very vast. But we still lack a lot of women that's truly into craft for the art and the buzz.
A lot of other cities or towns, women in a brewery, lol! Not! Most of the time when I walk in I get plenty looks and stares... All eyes on me! They are just as curious about me as I am about the beer I'm not sure if it's because I'm a woman or a black woman with locs coming in with a Texas accent. Either way, I just want a fire ass beer. I might see a woman in there with her husband or boyfriend and see them get a spritzer or water, not even trying the beer. Everyone has a preference though. I sometimes just feel like I want to have a beer with another woman and talk about the beer. But then one day I was in Nashville, I went downstairs to the hotel bar & asked what kind of craft beer they had. I ordered my beer and looked to my right and seen a sista drinking a craft! I was soo mfn excited! And we still drink beer together till this day when we are close. Just by drinking a beer together, we immediately built a bond. So my question is still where my sistas at? Cheers yall! Please sign up and follow me, and let me know what you think.
