I went to high school with Rising Tide Brewery tasting room manager Stasia Brewczynski, featured in the interviews above (imagine my inebriated confusion when I ran into her while she was working a beer festival that I was attending, after not having seen her for probably 8 years at that point). While it still bums me out that beer remains such a sexist industries, these women are doing awesome work, and it's nice to seem them get the recognition they deserve. Go team!
