We are getting more women to try, and enjoy, beer.

This isn't a boast because there is a lot more to do (although it is something I'm proud of), but it's a fantastic start.

You only have to look at the Rake on Monday night, where the Project Venus beer was launched (I couldn't be there as I was involved in KaiWeCare (http://www.kaiwecare.weebly.com/) - got £800 for a beer tasting too!), apparently the pub was heaving!

The beer was the result of a bunch of brewsters getting together and making a 4% beer with Pacific Gem & Citra hops, which apparently turned out so good two firkins were gone baby gone on the night! That's 144 pints in four hours case you're counting!

And of course, there's Barley's Angels, which is really taking off! (Sorry, I just can't help myself.) You can join our facebook group here (http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=group_111195885625127&ap=1) and once I figure out why the re-direct has eaten the blog you'll be able to find it here www.barleysangels.co.uk (sorry it's a mess right now!).https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/7870641958407671573-4821473125697209462?l=girlsguidetobeer.blogspot.co m
