Try Southbound Mountain Jam at Dames + Dregs Beer Festival Saturday – Atlanta Journal Constitution (blog)

Billed as “an Atlanta-based experience that seeks to empower and educate the community by celebrating the female contributions to brewing, both in the present and throughout history,” the first annual Dames + Dregs Beer Festival runs 1-6 p.m. Saturday at the Masquerade at Underground Atlanta. 

The co-founder of the event, Rebecca Royster, who previously worked at the Porter Beer Bar and Orpheus Brewing, says that unlike the usual beer tasting, the festival aims to explore a range of topics, including community engagement, the beer business, and brewing from a women’s perspective.

To that end, there will four different panels throughout the day. Among the panelists, Molly Gunn of the Porter and Carly Wiggins of Southbound Brewing Co. will talk about the entrepreneurial side. Brewers Zuri Coleman of Second Self, Sarah Green of Monday Night, and Christine Stevens of New Realm will talk about making beer, and present some new beers they created for Dames + Dregs.

“We thought it was time to do a beer festival that celebrated women and that was more female friendly,” Royster says. “I’ve been on this business for quite a while, and I’ve worked tons of festivals, and I kind of grew to hate them. 

“We really wanted to put on a well-rounded event that had content, and arts and music and food and beer. People can come and have a good time, but they can also stimulate their minds.”
