Brewsters Assemble!

We’re back again with our weekly update. This week is looking exciting! Let’s have a look at what we’ve got going on.

This week we featured in the Education section of the Guardian! It was great to meet Naomi Larsson and we really enjoyed reading the article. You can read the article here. A big thanks for the lovely write up, Naomi!

The first North East festival celebrating women in the brewing industry is coming to Newcastle this week. We’re going to be hosting the bar for the symposium that is happening on Thursday evening. It’s going to be held in Venue, the space underneath the Student’s Union, from 7.30pm until 9.30pm.

The Symposium will be a panel discussion, where each panelist will spend around 10 minutes discussing their experiences, and a subject of their choice. We will then spend around 30 minutes discussing topics such as sexism in the beer industry, what we’ve done to combat it, and what we can do better. Finally, we will then have a Q & A where the audience can ask the panelists questions. Special guests include Melissa Cole and Julia Austin. There will also be an event at the The Town Mouse on 7-10 March to celebrate and showcase women in the beer industry. This festival is designed to highlight women in brewing, bars, and everything beer, and to celebrate their achievements. It’s worth noting that every ticket for the symposium comes with a free pint of our beer! What’s not to love?

We’ve got our hands on a new piece of kit. As many of you know, Stu Brew are strongly supported by the School of Engineering and it’s now the time of year where our research projects in the school are underway. This week saw the arrival of the dealcoholization unit. Keep an eye out for the results of the research sometime soon.

Finally our secretary, Harry, was joined by a couple of members; Harsh and Cameron on a brew day on Sunday. They brewed Lady Liberty which is a beer we brewed exclusively for Pacific House. To try this get down to the wonderful Pacific House who will pull you through a pint… or two!

That’s all from us for this week. Have a GREAT week!
