Bid to make ales 'women-friendly'

Brewers of real ale should join forces with publicans to make the drink more appealing to women, a campaign group has said. The Campaign for Real Ale (Camra) says 80% of female drinkers have never tried a pint of bitter in a pub.

What next, women-friendly pipes? Mmmm, hang on -
Camra's research coincides with the opening of its Great British Beer Festival at the Earl's Court exhibition centre in London, which runs until 11 August.

Well, fancy that!
