Women’s connection to the history of beer is especially evident in the correlations seen between medieval female brewers (brewsters) and the modern-day witch... OKAY HEAR US OUT!
1) Black cauldron: brew kettle filled with boiling wort.
2) Cat: brewers often kept a cat to keep rampant rodents out of their grain storage.
3) Broom: an ale stake was displayed above the door of a brewer with ale for sale. It consisted of a rod with many smaller sticks tied onto one end and happened to double as a broom for cleaning the shop.
4) Pointy hat: When brewers took their ale to market, they would wear tall pointed hats in order to stand out from the crowd and be easily visible.
Pretty spot on, right?
As the demand for beer grew, brewing was moved out of the home. Since laws in those times prevented women from owning property and starting businesses, the industry became dominated by men as they opened larger-scale brewing operations. Over time, the imagery associated with the brewster became morphed into our modern day Halloween costume! Thanks @craftbeerdotcom

"NZ’s pint-sized population, however, has led its brewers to focus on quality and invention over quantity, putting its brilliant beers firmly into The League of Gentlemen territory – local beer for local people."
Featured NZ craft breweries include Yeastie Boys, Tuatara, Three Boys, and Renaissance - has anyone tried them before??
