In May 2021, Hoppily team members Emma and Cheryl were lucky enough to sit down with Jane, founder of the all-female Mothership Beer, to discuss their experiences as women in the craft beer industry, and the importance of brewing for a good cause.
This interview centres around Mothership's new Hazy IPA 'Text Me When Ur Home', a beer that Jane was inspired to create after being moved by the tragic murder of Sarah Everard. The beer is designed to open a conversation around the lack of safety women feel when walking home at night. For that reason it includes a donation to Rosa UK, a charity that supports grassroots women's organisations across the United Kingdom.
Mothership have very quickly become one of the big names for us in craft brewing, and not just because the quality of each beer exceeds expectation - the fact that each beer has so much love, passion and motivation to inspire a positive change in the world tells us that Mothership Beer are here to stay.
If you want to be a part of this conversation 'Text When Ur Home' is available right now here.
