Not a good story. Resonating with me is "...allegations that stand in stark contrast to the feel-good image of friendliness, inclusivity and community the sector has long conveyed."

A sobering read. That's an interesting quote you pull out too because the general vibe of craft brewing is that it's a better, more community and inclusivity-focused industry than most others, but for all the instances of activism and support that we should applaud I'd love to see some figures on how may people in and associated with the industry are of colour, or female or identify as something other than hetero. Throw in the fact that alcohol can play a role in sexual harassment and a general loss of judgement and the view clouds even further.
