>> Dayton beer community rallies around woman involved with sex-assault allegations against Columbus brewery founder
Nearly a dozen women who work at various levels in breweries throughout Ohio will share their experiences of working in a male-dominated industry at the International Women’s Day event, scheduled to start at 6 p.m. Friday. The beer-themed bar will feature beers from the speakers’ breweries on its tap list that night, some of which were brewed specifically for International Women's Day.

“There’s no reason why someone without a beard can’t be as knowledgeable (about craft beer), if not moreso, than someone who does,” Stathes said. “I’ve dealt with a lot of disrespect and dismissal, especially as a business owner in this industry. But for every small-minded dude who has treated me disrespectfully, there are 20 more who are rooting me on, so I don’t want people to think that they’re all bad.”

The Barrel House will be donating $1 from every pint it pours that day to the YWCA of Dayton, and also will be accepting donations all day Friday — as well as through the end of March — for the local non-profit. Food will be available from Griller B's, the food truck parked outside the Barrel House's back door, from 5 p.m. to midnight.
