Black is Beautiful Round-up

There is nothing better than curling up with a toasty, dark brew that warms you up from the inside. And if you can drink for a cause while you're at it - all the better! We've rounded up some local takes on the Black Is Beautiful collaboration, brewed to raise awareness for the injustices people of colour face daily, and raise funds for police brutality reform and legal defences those who have been wronged.

Niagara on the lake

SOBDL Craft Beer Road Trip: Niagara

While COVID-19 cases continue to spike and we all start to ready ourselves for another slower winter we wanted to highlight some of the great breweries that are right in our backyard--whether you’re looking for a little fall getaway or want to plan a road trip to look forward to in 2021 :) Over the coming months we’ll be bringing you guides for some of our favorite local road trip destinations so you can start daydreaming about your next beer getaway!


Meet the Artisans

Now that our 2nd Beer Squad Mystery Boxes are rolling out across the province to ya, we wanted to take a second to highlight the amazing womxn makers that we partnered with this time around! Here are their (lovely!) faces and a bit about them. Connect with if YOU’RE a womxn maker and have cool products you think we should include in future mystery boxes! And as we continue to create an organization that is equitable, diverse and inclusive, we’re always looking for makers who identify with the LGBTQ+ and BIPOC communities!


Meet the Society!

Since we’re not able to meet in person for a bit longer, we thought we’d take a minute to introduce ourselves and the Society! We're Jaime and Erica and we’re the owners and operators over here at The Society of Beer Drinking Ladies. Both of us have worked in the craft beer industry for many years now - Jaime is currently in sales at Beau's & Erica is in sales (but on mat leave at the moment!) at Henderson Brewing.

Summer Listening List

SOBDL Summer Listening List

Over the past couple of months we’ve brought you the Summer Reading List and the Summer Watching List. Today we’re bringing you the last article in the series, our listening list.So, before the leaves start changing colours, let’s squeeze the last drops out of summer. As usual, I’ve spoken to some of the women of SOBDL to bring you a list of podcasts we’re listening to right now and, last but not least, a surprise that no one asked for, I’m sharing a few great songs I’ve discovered on TikTok because we love some Gen Z talent!


Spotlight on Indigenous Brew Day

We caught up with Mark Solomon, one of the organizers behind Indigeous Brew Day, taking place Sept 20th. The brew day connects Indigenous people working in beer to share their experiences and brew together (virtually at the moment.) Mark is a homebrewer with a passion for bringing people together, and a member of Henvey Inlet First Nation. He spoke to us about the Brew Day, his future plans and his favourite brewery.
