Women On Tap Brewster Beer & Arts Festival 2019
We're delighted to confirm that Women On Tap Brewster Beer and Arts Festival will take place again for its third year from 1-5 May 2019.
**MORE INFO TO FOLLOW IN EARLY 2019**
Founded in Harrogate in 2017, Women On Tap presents unique events fusing beer, women & the arts in order to raise the profile of women in a traditionally male-dominated industry. An annual Brewster beer and arts festival plus a programme of year-round events across the region all showcase exceptional beer, creative talent & inspirational women.
The inaugural festival was funded by founders Rachel Auty and Andrew Cameron in 2017, and thanks to a successful crowdfunding campaign grew by more than 100% for 2018. The plan for the next Women On Tap is to take the annual event to another level, but as a non-profit Community Interest Company and certified social enterprise, further financial support was needed. Women On Tap has now secured vital sponsorships with some leading beer brands for 2019.
The UK has one of the lowest percentages of female beer drinkers in the world** and Women On Tap exists to change that. Through collaborations with leading bars, breweries and experts, friendly and interactive experiences are created to educate, inspire, and encourage women to find and further explore their passion for beer.
So what’s in store for the 2019 festival? Founder Rachel provides a sneaky peak: “We’ve got an exciting vision to really push forward with even more bespoke events, a fringe programme at some of our favourite venues across the north, and a one-day Women In Beer conference. It’s going to be big! The focus will be on Harrogate again but with a wider regional footprint as we plan to deliver a huge party in May 2019 celebrating not only women and beer but also the fantastic beer destination that is the north of England.”
