The Importance of Inclusivity in the Brewing Community

Breaking Down Barriers in the World of Craft Beer

The world of craft beer has long been seen as a male-dominated industry, with a lack of diversity among both brewers and consumers. However, organizations such as the Equity in Brewing Project (EEB) are working towards a more inclusive and diverse community.

One of the main goals of EEB is to break down barriers for women, people of color, LGBTQ+ individuals, and other underrepresented groups in the brewing industry. This includes providing educational resources, networking opportunities, and advocating for equal opportunities in the workplace.

Providing Resources for Brewers and Consumers Alike

In addition to their efforts to create a more inclusive industry, EEB also provides resources for both brewers and consumers. This includes a database of female and minority-owned breweries, as well as information on events and festivals that prioritize diversity and inclusivity.

For brewers, EEB offers a range of tools and resources such as workshops, mentorship programs, and forums to share knowledge and ideas. By providing these resources, EEB aims to help underrepresented groups find their footing in the industry and overcome the challenges they may face.

The Continued Fight for Inclusivity

Despite the progress made by organizations such as EEB, there is still a long way to go in creating a truly inclusive and diverse brewing community. In recent years, there have been several incidents of racism and misogyny in the industry, highlighting the need for continued advocacy and education.

In addition to providing resources and support for underrepresented groups, it is also important for industry leaders and allies to speak out and take action against inequality and discrimination. By working together towards a more inclusive community, we can ensure that everyone has the opportunity to pursue their passion for craft beer.


The brewing industry has the potential to be an incredibly diverse and dynamic community, but only if we work together to break down barriers and create opportunities for everyone. Organizations like the Equity in Brewing Project are leading the way in this effort, and it is up to all of us to continue the fight for inclusivity and equality in the world of craft beer.
