By purchasing an item from the Antisexist Antiracist Proequality Beer Club merch fundraiser, you are helping to bring awareness to the much needed changes in the beer industry and stand with those who have shared their stories of harassment and discrimination. Proceeds will go to further our efforts to develop resources and launch initiatives to best support beer industry staff.
Brewer and Beer Industry Advocate Brienne Allan, who goes by @RatMagnet on Instagram, initiated a movement in May 2021 after sharing stories submitted to her by women in the beer industry about their experiences with sexism, sexual harassment, assault and discrimination in the workplace. Since, thousands of stories have been shared igniting a #MeToo movement in the beer industry spotlighting the need for safe spaces, inclusive environments and more resources to best support industry staff. 100% of the proceeds of this shirt will be donated directly to Brienne and Ash Eliot of Women of the Bevolution to support their efforts and funds to assist survivors, develop programs (grants for women and non-binary entrepreneurs in brewing) and provide more resources to the community through initiatives like the Brave Noise global beer collab. Show your support and join the AntiSexist, AntiRacist, ProEquality Beer Club.

About Brienne Allan
Brienne Allan, is a professional brewer (formerly of Notch Brewing). She has held chapter lead roles with Pink Boots Society in the Boston area. In late May 2021, Allan after sharing her own story about sexism in the industry, she asked her Instagram (@RatMagnet) followers if they had ever experienced sexism in the beer industry. She received hundreds of stories from women who have faced gender discrimination, sexual harassment, harassment and racism. Since then, thousands of stories have been shared online, which has created a #MeToo movement in the beer industry.
