There's a great article in the Oregonian today (and not by Foyston -- ?) about Bend Brewing's Tonya Cornett, who recently won a brewmaster award at the World Beer Cup.
Cornett is the first woman brewer to win the award sponsored by the Brewers Association, a craft brewing industry group. The honor marks a milestone -- women's gradual but ongoing ascension in the male-dominated world of beer making.I have some comments about women and brewing, but for now, go have a look at the article. And the next time you're enjoying a beer, raise a toast to yet another Oregon brewing first and to Tonya Cornett.
