What we're about
A very casual group of Philly women who get together to drink & learn about great craft beer, and just have fun with a bunch of great ladies! Any ladies, ages 21 - 101, are welcome! Beer Necessities Mission: Give beer-loving women (drinkers, brewers, bartenders) an opportunity to meet other beer-loving women & share some good brews and stories in the process. Only a love of beer is required, not any level of beer knowledge. We'll learn and drink together!
All BN events are ladies only, unless noted (i.e. when we crash public events like festivals, bring whoever!)
Feel free to reach out to me with any ideas of events that we could do! Especially looking for breweries or bars owned, managed, or employed by awesome ladies! Reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Back story: Sarah Eshelman founded Beer Necessities in Austin Texas in September 2014, a spinoff of her friend's group in Chicago. She then moved to WA and created a Seattle Chapter. Jillian, a Portland local caught wind of this group and Sarah helped her create a chapter. I am starting a sister group/4th chapter in Philly because like Sarah and Jillian I wanted to join a group like Beer Necessities.
