FEMALE brewers united around the world to make beer on Saturday.

As part of International Women’s Day, Brentwood Brewing Company hosted a collaboration brew day getting beer makers of the fairer sex to produce a pale ale together.

Joining in via the internet, hundreds of brewers in countries such as the USA, Canada and New Zealand took part.

Sophie de Ronde, the head brewer at Brentwood who spearheaded the event, said she was ecstatic with the turnout.

Ms de Ronde said: “We’re hugely proud of how the day turned out and we’d like to thank everyone who has generously donated their time, services and products to make this event such a success.”
