CHARLOTTE, N.C. — As we celebrate Women’s History month and all the accomplishments that women have made here in Charlotte, the brewing industry is still mainly male-dominated. But one local brewery is breaking that mold, Birdsong Brewing is a majority women-owned and operated brewery. Joining us Friday was co-owner, Tara Goulet and brewer Andrea Frohlich.
They tell us, they have been involved in the craft beer scene and the community since the beginning. They brew by a simple philosophy: "...let’s do our part for the environment and run our business conscientiously." Adding...they love serving the community.
Frohlich reflecting back on her early start in the field, "...being in a male dominated industry is not easy, I had to build a lot of relationship with my community and local breweries. The journey to get here required a lot of hard work and grit.” In fact Frohlich goes on to say, “I would encourage any women who want to follow a path in brewing to get ready to work hard and to not give up or in.”
Tara Goulet, a Co-Owner of Birdsong says, “Birdsong Brewing is a popular spot and we feature a wide variety of drinks for our customers. We have our Annual Spring Oyster Roast this Saturday, that has been a hit with lots of beer, oyster and fun."
The Oyster Roast benefits Time Out Youth. The event is Saturday, March 25th between 1-4 pm, on 1016 N Davidson St., tickets are $30.
This event is a hot seller. Limited day-of tickets are available. Reserve your oysters NOW! For more information visit BirdsongBrewing.com
