A recent beer & food matching event in Liverpool: Dea Latis co-founder Annabel Smith is standing at the far end of the table  

Dea Latis gains backing from brewers

Dea Latis, the volunteer organisation run by women to bring the delights of beer to the attention of women, is receiving a boost in its fortunes from the brewing fraternity.

The organisation has secured its first corporate members. Duvel Moortgat, Harvey’s, Marston’s, Shepherd Neame and St Austell are all committing funds to the organisation. (The financial details have not been disclosed.)

The funds will allow Dea Latis to expand upon its efforts, including its beer and food tasting events. The organisation will be conducting research into women’s attitudes to beer and developing a PR campaign to encourage more media coverage of beer as a drink for women.

Dea Latis co-founder Lisa Harlow explained, “The research will be a key piece of work for us this year as well as running more consumer events and collecting data about women employed in the brewing industry and supply chain. We would not be able to achieve any of this without corporate membership support.”

Harlow, alongside Ros Shiel and Annabel Smith, founded Dea Latis in 2010. Over the years it has staged beer and food tastings, including its annual pre-Christmas Beer & Breakfast event, which is scheduled to return this November.
