Worthy Reads – Black In Beer: Inclusion From The Outside Perspective by Toni CanadaEditor's Notes: Craft Beer has a diversity problem. Show up at any event and the cast of characters will look familiar and fairly homogeneous: white dudes with beards. While the number of white women in beer has steadily increased, the total diversity of craft beer has stayed fairly monochromatic.

These memories can bring about feelings of nostalgia for some and annoyance or contempt for others. Unfortunately, the latter is the view that many... ( continue reading at Beer Kulture)
