About Us

Barley’s Angels is a growing collection of individual chapters around the world that work with craft beer focused breweries, brewpubs, restaurants, alehouses and other public beer establishments to advance the female consumer craft beer enthusiast, resulting in increased patronage and revenue from women, while encouraging education and interest in beer among this often under-recognized demographic group.

The Colorado chapter focuses on education, diversity and fun! Barley’s Angels respect beer and brewing, have a thirst for education, enjoy beer responsibly and act appropriately at all times. Our chapter was founded in January 2015 at Wynkoop Brewery with Brewer Bess Dougherty and we strive to meet every month at different locations around the front range. In the future we would like to shave brand ambassadors who host events all throughout our beautiful state.
