Bitches Brew

With St. Patrick’s Day around the corner, it’s important to pick your poison wisely (if you’re into that sorta thing). With so many dude-centric drinks out there, is it possible to imbibe ethically and put your money where your feminist mouth is? The world of lady-run microbreweries would say YES. Apparently, women have historically been responsible for supplying the world’s beer, says the Oxford Companion to Beer, and in pockets around the country, women are reclaiming this hallowed role. Here are a few women-owned breweries and the beers that they’ve crafted. (We picked the ones with the witchy names, obvs.)

Stoudt’s Scarlet Lady Ale

Six Rivers Brewery‘s Moonstone Porter
