Young Henrys has unveiled a new initiative to create more opportunities in the brewing industry for women, female identifying and non-binary folk.

The Young Henrys Brewing Scholarship will offer funding for one woman every year for a Certificate Three Brewing Course (worth $10,000). In addition to the funding there will be quarterly mentoring from Young Henrys’ Head Distiller Carla Daunton, Head Brewer Jesse Searls and Rene Delmas from the Young Henrys lab.

There will also be a chance to take part in one-on-one mentoring with the scientists involved in The Algae Project, for further understanding of Young Henrys’ sustainability initiatives.

Daunton said: “I’m really excited to see the impact this opportunity will have not only on the brewer each year but also the industry as a whole by showing genuine and practical support for women in brewing.”

Young Henrys Co-Founder, Oscar McMahon added: “The craft beer industry is a pretty fun and exciting place to be. It’s full of open-minded and interesting people but still has a way to go with regard to gender diversity.

“The Young Henrys Brewers Scholarship is our way of trying to show women (this includes all who identify as women) who may have considered a career in the brewing industry that we want you here, that there are great careers and workplaces waiting for you and that we truly believe the industry will be all the better for it.”

Applications for the scholarship are now open and will close on Thursday, March 31st. Applicants must be female, female-identifying, non-binary, and a registered student in the TAFE Cert 3 Micro Brewing Course 2022.
