If, like us, you have been reading the horrible stories coming out of the craft brewing industry regarding sexism, intolerance, and downright hatred and abuse towards women, people of colour, and members of the LGBTQ+ community, you cannot be anything but concerned. Right now it’s pretty clear that every woman who has spent anytime in the hospitality industry has stories, and many have lots.
We have always seen breweries as a place for everyone to have a beer and kickback, an enjoyable space where the craic is good, both out front and back of house. All our employees, partners, and customers should have a safe place in craft beer regardless of gender, race, class, age, sexual orientation, or beliefs.
At Stone Angel Brewing, we are committed to having a safe and inclusive environment for all our team members and customers. We shall always strive to do better. We believe that the industry can do better, and we believe that it will. But clearly work needs to be done.
