Drink & Draw

JXN Barley’s Angels – May Meeting

JXN Barley's Angels tasting

Kalamazoo, MI has built a reputation as a major player in the American craft beer movement with Bell’s Brewery at the center. Last month, some of our ladies had the unique opportunity to meet Bell’s Brewery VP/Co-owner, Laura Bell. She gave us the run down on her favorite brews and even shared some Kalamazoo craft beer club culture from her home town called Kalamadoodle.

At this crafty event, craft beer enthusiasts sit down to sip hoppy libations and draw “masterpieces’ on tables wrapped in parchment paper or color outside-the-lines on adult coloring pages that they proudly display on their fridges. Inspired by this Kalamazoo quirkiness, we bring you Drink and Draw for our May Meeting.

You can expect craft beer samplings from Capital City Beverages, food pairings created by Chef Ryan Bell, adult ‘beer themed’ coloring, special guest from Bell’s Brewery, and a rewarding round of beer trivia all at the May Meeting. So mark your calendar and invite a friend to the monthly JXN Barley’s Angels meeting. Ladies-Only and must be 21+ to attend. Remember your ID’s.

EVENT: Drink and Draw with Barley’s Angels
DATE: Tues., May 24th
TIME: 6pm to 8pm
LOCATION: Hal and Mal’s Restaurant
COST: $8 Members / $10 Non-Members

Hope to see you at the May Meeting!

Cheers,

Toni Francis

Barley’s Angels Freiburg 01

basfreiburg

Liebe Bier-Freundinnen,

ich freue mich, heute unser erstes Event der Barleys Angels Freiburg ins Netz zu stellen. 🙂 Gerade eben habe ich mir noch ein Horst (ein California Brown Ale) vom Braukollektiv geöffnet – ein leckeres, vielfältiges Geschmackserlebnis aus würzig frischen Hopfenaromen, umspielt von feinen karameligen und schokoladigen Malznoten. Einen Genuss wie diesen und viele weitere möchte ich zukünftig mit Euch teilen und habe deshalb die Barleys Angels nach Freiburg geholt.

Die Barleys Angels sind ein weltweites Netzwerk das sich dem Thema Frauen & Bier verschrieben hat. Warum ein Netzwerk, das sich mit der Thematik Bier exklusiv an Frauen wendet? Natürlich macht das Bierverkosten, Geniessen und Fachsimpeln in den verschiedensten Runden Spass und ist eine wichtige Bereicherung und doch gibt es bei Frauen manchmal eine unbestimmte Zurückhaltung. Ob aus der Befürchtung heraus, man hätte zu wenig Ahnung oder weil man Bier zwar mag, aber nicht alle und nicht in großen Mengen … warum auch immer …

Die Veranstaltungen der Barleys Angels bieten einen Raum in dem sich Frau mal ganz ihrem persönlichen Biergeschmack widmen und die Biervielfalt kennenlernen kann. Und ich meine, es gibt noch viele weitere Gründe den besonderen Spirit, der sich in Frauenrunden oft entwickelt, beim Biergenuss zu entfachen.

Ich selbst konnte bisher noch keine geschlechtertypischen Vorlieben oder Tendenzen für einen Biergeschmack ausmachen doch es ist jedes mal aufs Neue spannend das gemeinsam zu entdecken! Derzeit erleben wir die weltweite Entwicklung einer wunderbar kreativen und dynamischen Craftbier-Szene, die auch hier regional schon ordentlich spriesst. Ich freue mich sehr darauf, das Fenster zu dieser Vielfalt an Genuss zu öffnen und mit Euch leckere und spassige Reisen durch das Bier-Universum zu unternehmen.

Übrigens haben durchaus auch die Brauereien grosses Interesse die Bier-Konsumentin näher kennen zu lernen, nachdem man sich in der Vergangenheit deutlich weniger mit dieser Zielgruppe beschäftigt hat. Denn je mehr sie über unsere Bier-Vorlieben wissen, desto individueller können sie bei ihrer Produktentwicklung auch darauf eingehen. Ich freue mich darauf!

Bierige Grüsse
Andrea
