In many countries, the UK included, beer has been considered a man's drink for a long time. From branding to advertising campaigns, the male demographic has long dominated this industry. However, times are changing; the Society of Independent Brewers (SIBA) created a new code of practice forbidding any marketing of a sexist nature and CAMRA banned all drinks with sexist imagery from the Great British beer festival. While this is great progress, we believe a lot more can be done to include women in the beer industry from keg to bottle!

For International Women's Day we wanted to celebrate and give our very own wulfie women the spotlight. We've asked a few of them about their favourite beers, because what's better than asking women who work with beer every day?

Want to try some of their recommendations? You will find all the beers mentioned in this article in the Beerwulf web shop. And remember, if you order any combination of 8 kegs, you'll get free delivery!

#1 Tiger


Lucile: For me, Tiger is the most thirst-quenching beer, a must-have on a hot summer's day. It has a light, sweet and malty taste. If you draught it at home, fresh from The SUB, it is especially moreish. Try it yourself! Tiger could quickly become one of your favourite beers: I would really recommend it to anyone who enjoys a light, crisp lager on a sunny day!

#2 Desperados


Ania: My absolute favourite beer for The SUB is Desperados. I love the taste of lemon and lime which makes the drink super refreshing. The tequila kick always puts me in a positive mood: whether after a hard day at work or when barbecuing with friends - Desperados always gives you the feeling of being part of a legendary party.

#3 Delirium Tremens


Vicky: In the part of the UK where I come from, we love strong Belgian beers and for me there is nothing like the pink elephant! Delirium Tremens is a wonderfully tasty Belgian blond with a high carbon dioxide content and a sweet, spicy taste that goes perfectly with the delicious Belgian yeast. Draughting this beer from The SUB takes it to a whole new level: It's fresh, tasty and light as a feather. My tip: best enjoyed with a delicious, smelly cheese and good friends.

#4 Gösser Radler


Nicole: One of my favourite drinks is Gösser Radler. This SUB Keg is super refreshing, making it perfect for a warm summer day. This one has long been one of my favourites and, like me, comes from Austria. I like the refreshing taste, the lemon juice, and that it's low in alcohol. It is a real thirst quencher and can be enjoyed at a festival, with friends at home, at a barbecue or while watching sports. For me, Gösser Radler is always a good companion! 


#5 La Chouffe Blond D’ardenne


Anja: One of my favourite beers is La Chouffe Blond D’ardenne. I just love it. It's a great fruity beer with a coriander twist and a balanced hoppiness. You just have to be careful! It's drinkable and you don't really taste or notice the 8% alcohol, which of course can make for a good evening, but also can be dangerous!

#6 Hofbräu Gandolf IPA


Lorena: My favourite beer for The SUB is Hofbräu Gandolf IPA. I like its coppery colour, but what I love most are the flavours of tropical fruits like mango and pineapple. I think this beer is perfection. It's great with a meal but I also like to drink it at the end of a long day when I just want to relax! 

#7 Lagunitas IPA

Nina Klotz

Jennifer: My favourite beer for The SUB is Lagunitas IPA. I remember the first time I drank this beer in sunny California. With 6.2% alcohol and hoppy notes, this IPA has a very light taste. A perfect beer if you are looking for a fruity refreshment!

#8 Affligem Tripel


Levi: The Affligem Tripel is definitely one of my favourite beers. I prefer to drink this beer when I'm winding down. It is a strong, sweet Tripel that melts in the mouth, so to speak. Of course, you should not drink too much of this beer, at 9% it's best enjoyed in moderation!


Extra tip:  If you order 8 SUB Kegs, delivery is free. No idea what a SUB Keg or The SUB is? Then take a look!

Cheers to International Women's Day!
