The Women Who Like Beer agenda is to drink excellent beer among excellent company -- and maybe learn a few things about craft beer and brewing in the process.
This meetup was started by Tiila, a woman who likes beer, and understands that beer can be enjoyed just like a fine wine, only perhaps with more of a sense of fun.
In 2012, so that the meetup would continue, Gail Williams, co-founder of Beer by BART paid the annual administration fee and continued the group, expecting to have a little more free time than she seems to have had recently. Gail has become a BJCP certified beer judge, a home brewer of sour beers and a freelance beer writer.
In 2014, Gail was chatting with Jessica Fender at a RateBeer Gallery and mentioned the MeetUp was in need of a new leader. As Jessica is a prolific beer drinker and loves meeting new people, she thought she'd give it a go.
