Sixty Six percent had the correct answer to the quiz last week, the earliest brewers were women, and this trend continued until beer started to become commercialized. Beer was one of the few ways women could make a decent living, a.k.a not selling themselves. So thank you beer for helping women! Much like making cheese or butter back in the day, beer making was an artisanal craft, much like it is becoming again today in
This week’s quiz is what I think a very important thing to know. The difference between how a lager is made and how ale is made changes the way the beer is flavored, the way it tastes. There is of course ways the brewers can get around this and not all ales taste like ales and not all lagers taste like lagers. Good luck, I look forward to seeing what you all think.
