No to "Lady Lagers": There's a Proper Beer for Every Girl
Female drinkers make up only ten percent of the UK beer market, and Sophie Atherton is determined to change that. Through exposure to craft beers and cask ales, she hopes to help women acquire a taste for brews.
Atherton is well placed to comment. Three months ago she became the UK's first accredited female beer sommelier. Since then, in between her work as a journalist and beer writer, she's been working tirelessly as a "beer ambassador", doing talks and tastings like this one during National Cask Ale Week at the The North Pole pub in Islington, north London, to try and spread the love.
