Do women need their own brand of beer?

Me thinks a resounding NO!

I came across this article today and think it is incredibly ridiculous!  Personally speaking, I enjoy drinking beer for the taste and (the already multiple) varieties available.  The women I know that don't drink beer don't drink it because they don't like the taste, so I can't really see how "girly-fying" it will help that in that situation.  [It also annoys me that every so-called "manly" thing has to have a female equivalent...i.e., the stupid pink sports shirts.  But, that's another story for another time!]

What do you think?


  1. I say no also. i brew my own beer, drink a wide variety, and have since I was 19. I know a few gals that don't like beer, but not many.

    It's an excuse, as I see it, to talk down to women and rachet up prices for us at the same time.

  2. Glad that you agree! I also brew my own beer - have a pumpkin one in secondary right now, in fact. Yum!

    With so many choices, there is pretty much a beer out there for everyone's taste. You are absolutely right about the higher pricing, too...they absolutely would do that! Won't be a problem for us, at least ;)
