Barley’s Angels Ottawa

I’m back! After a week or so of stepping away from the keyboard due to unforeseen reasons, I’m back and even more eager to write.

Times are changing, women are taking charge and getting rid of those nasty stereotypes about drinking beer. Let’s be real here forBarley's Angels a second, the first brewers in the world were women and the Queen use to prefer strong ales in the Renaissance period. So the media branding women as ‘light beer drinkers’ is just flat out garbage.

Out to break that stereotype came the Barley’s Angels, with the first group forming in Portland, Oregon. Barley’s Angels “a growing collection of individual chapters around the world that work with craft beer focused breweries, brewpubs, restaurants, alehouses and other public beer establishments to advance the female consumer craft beer enthusiast, resulting in increased patronage and revenue from women, while encouraging education and interest in beer among this often under-recognized demographic group.” One thing to note, Barley’s Angels is not just a social drinking club, it’s meant to be educational and to encourage women to enjoy beer responsibly.

With Ottawa’s craft beer scene continuously growing it only seemed fitting that eventually some courageous young women would step up to form Ottawa’s First Barley’s Angels Chapter. Katy Watts (writer of Sheltered Girl Meets World) did what others were waiting for someone to do, she finally brought it all together. With this chapter only being formed within the last couple of months I received an invitation inviting me to be a member, and how could i refuse?

The first Barley’s Angels Ottawa meeting is set for April 2nd at Kichesippi Brewing Co. starting at 6:30pm. Admission is free but beer will be $4.00 / 12 oz pour. For more information you can contact barleysangelsott@gmail.com
