“We were delighted to find an amazing writer who shared our passion for diversity, equity and inclusion in beer – a writer that not only has a way with words, but has tremendous beer knowledge and a commitment to sharing it with others. Hollie has contributed so much to Equity Brewing Co’s mission through her beautiful and imaginative writing. We could not achieve our vision to educate and include others in the amazing world of craft beer without her!”

Suzette Grillot, Equity Brewing Company


Stephens has a gift for making the science of drinks readable; demystifying the creation of our most loved drinks with a fresh perspective and love for the natural environment. Well researched work makes the reader feel educated in topics they hadn’t considered of interest, leaving a thirst for more.” 
“Stephens paints vivid imagery with writing so sensory I can almost smell and taste her words.”
