As Los Angeles' craft beer scene continues to grow by leaps and bounds, it's increasingly refreshing to see smart, hardworking women enter the market at all levels.
There are, of course, longtime stalwarts like Cyrena Nouzille, co-owner of Ladyface Ale Companie in Agoura Hills, and Meg Gill from Golden Road Brewing. But with the overall rise of great craft options, more and more women across the board are making the move to Los Angeles, finding opportunities and a willing beer-drinking population.
One of best recent examples is the female-run Three Weavers Brewing in Inglewood. LA Weekly sat down with brewmaster Alexandra Nowell and owner Lynne Weaver to discuss the rise of craft beer in L.A., what it means to be a woman in the industry, and the Pink Boots Society, which helps to further advance the careers of beer-loving women.
