Top female brewers in the UK

Amanda Cotoia, brewer, Wiper & True

Cotoia joined Bristol’s Wiper & True as a quality control expert from Molson Coors in Canada. Having been at the brewery for four years, in 2018 she was involved in a project called XX to celebrate the role of women in the beer industry.

Working alongside Wiper & True’s assistant brewer, Cynthia Toulouse, they brewed a gooseberry wheat beer, adding botanicals including heather and meadowsweet, traditionally used by female brewers or alewives before the advent of commercial brewing. Last year, Cotoia also teamed up with Georgina Young at Fuller’s to create a collaboratively brewed New England IPA.
