Barley’s Angels is a network of chapters by and for women exploring beer around the world. Barley’s Angels chapters expand the appreciation and understanding of craft beer among women through events with craft beer professionals. Chapter events are places to discover how to cook with beer, tricks to pairing beer with food, what makes the beer you like taste just right, how to buy the right beer, what’s going on at local breweries, and more!


Our events are open to females of legal drinking age, have a nominal fee (varies), offer craft beer and food, and provide an educational element.


Members receive discounts at participating Business Partners , discounted or free entry to events and other special perks throughout the year.

Business Partners

Craft beer focused businesses that offer our members discounts because they seek to advance the education and interest in beer among women.

About Us

We're a growing collection of chapters around the world, serving women who seek a comfortable environment to explore craft beer.
