In this episode I share a beer and some conversation with the Beer-Babe, Carla Companion, who you may know from her popular beer blog on blogspot. The Beer-Babe’s blog focuses on beer reviews, I have been a fan of her blog for quite some time. Steering clear of becoming another pretentious review site, the Beer Babe focuses on putting beer into simple language that the novice beer drinker can understand and relate to. Naturally The Beer Babes blog also offers a “woman’s perspective on beer”. The statistics show that women tend to be a more “novice” beer drinker and that women only make up about 25% of the beer drinking population. What a disappointingly small number. The Beer Babe Blog, along with other girl-centric beer sites like Beer for Chicks and Women in Beer are working to break typical stereotypes women have about beer and to make good beer more approachable to the uninitiated. Hopefully these sites will convince more women to join the good beer revolution, once they see what they’ve been missing – I don’t think keeping them around will be much of a challenge!
