LA brewery had to pay off a man who didn’t like the idea of a beer education class for women

Hosted by

Ting Su, owner of the Eagle Rock Brewery, noticed that when women came in with their male partners, the women didn’t seem to know as much about beer as their dates. So she created beer seminars for women. Then Stephen Frye, a member of the National Coalition for Men, filed a claim against the brewery, citing California’s Unruh Act, which outlaws sex discrimination. Frye’s group is responsible for some 300 Unruh lawsuits, according to the New York Times.
