Vermont's craft brewing industry has its issues

To the Editor,
In early May, Brienne Allan, production manager at a Massachusetts craft brewery, took to her Instagram page to invite women to share their stories of sexism in the industry. 
Hundreds poured in, describing everything from frat–boy boorishness to outright racism and assault. Allan edited the posts together so they pass by almost too fast to read. The impression is of a gushing sewer pipe.
The accusers are anonymous. The accused are not. Allan’s disclaimer: “These are not my stories and I do not vouch for their accuracy.”
