Salem Craft Beer Tattoo Chick Uses IG To Smear Competing Breweries With Anonymous Allegations Of Sexual Harassment And Racism, Then Makes $35K On GoFundMe For Bravery

 

This is Brienne Allen, an employee at Notch Brewing in Salem.

She’s recently made headlines after documenting hundreds of anonymous allegations of alleged sexual harassment and racism at various craft beer competitors of Notch on Instagram. One of them is Wormtown Brewery in Worcester, and they’re caving to the mob she’s formed with her activism.

Most of Wormtown Brewery’s ownership team will step back from business operations at the largest brewery in Worcester after allegations of discrimination and sexual harassment the company described as “disturbing and heartbreaking” circulated on social media this week, Wormtown said in a statement Thursday night.

The allegations, which appear to have first begun circulating on Wednesday, were first posted to Instagram Stories by Brienne Allan, a brewer at Notch Brewing in Salem, on her Instagram account @ratmagnet. Allan has been in the spotlight for weeks after she began fielding and sharing stories about sexism in the craft beer industry earlier in May. Those stories ballooned to include reports of discrimination, racism and harassment from breweries around the country.

The only member of the leadership team specifically named in the allegations was Jay “Digger” Clarke. At least one complaint specifically accused Clarke of drinking excessively in the taproom, berating female department managers, and of having female staff members drive him home or to hotel rooms while intoxicated. The complaint accused Clarke of coercing three female employees into visiting a strip club with him.

In the company’s Thursday statement, General Manager Scott Metzger described the reports shared on Instagram as “disturbing and heartbreaking.”

“Wormtown Brewery is successful because of our passionate and committed team,” Metzger said in the statement. “That any member of our team may have experienced the harassing and discriminatory behaviors described, is not acceptable.”

The statement detailed specific actions the company was taking to combat workplace harassment and discrimination, and noted the company established a committee to make recommendations and improve workplace culture, which has already reportedly met twice. The actions Wormtown is reportedly taking include investigating alleged reports of misconduct and taking disciplinary action against perpetrators; reviewing and updating company policies; implementing mandatory diversity, equity and inclusion training for all employees, as well as enhanced leadership training for supervisors; and, evaluating and implementing internal and external human resources options.

OF COURSE they’re doing “diversity, equity, and inclusion,” training now. They’ll hire someone who checks off at least 3 diversity boxes, pay them an inordinate amount of money, force their employees to sit through 6 hours of being lectured about their privilege and microaggressions, declare that they’re fixed and go right back to work.

Rinse. Repeat.

And all because of a bunch of anonymous complaints on IG put together by a woman who works at a COMPETING brewery. If I were Wormtown Brewery I would’ve told them to get bent, because businesses shouldn’t make personnel decisions based off of anonymous complaints from a craft beer tattoo chick, but this is the craft beer industry. They know who buys their product, and they know what they have to do to attempt to appease them.

Let’s look at some of the anonymous complaints about sexual harassment at random breweries she’s harvested on her IG.

I have no doubt that there is probably sexual harassment going on in many of these places because there is sexual harassment everywhere. Andrew Cuomo is still the Governor of New York and if he ran for re-election right now he would win. The President of the United States was credibly accused of sexual assault by Tara Reade. Bill Clinton got blowjobs in the oval officer from an intern he had power over and he’s not nearly the pariah to his party that George Bush is to his. Hell, you can get your way onto the State Police if you sleep with someone high enough up. Sadly, it’s just the way of life and clearly nobody cares because the perpetrators are the same people virtue signaling about “believing women.”

But, I have a bigger problem with these online burn books filled with anonymous allegations that are not vetted at all, being used to destroy small businesses. These are from people who use terms like, “cis het white guys.”

Nuff said.

Here’s a quote from the WBUR story about Brienne:

If you think for a second that there are overqualified black microbrewers going around looking for jobs but not finding them because craft breweries are looking to hire underqualified white dudes, then you’re a fucking idiot. This is an unverified anecdote, and not a believable one either. Craft beer companies are some of the wokest around, because they have to be when this is what their clientele looks like:

Bearded white bros, chicks with tattoos, and lots of unnecessary wool hats being warn indoors during the summer. Probably not too many Trump voters in that crowd. Try to find a black person anywhere on Notch Brewery (or any breweries) Facebook page. Finding Waldo in the candy cane forest is easier. It is what it is. White people like craft beer and black, Hispanic, and Asian people by and large do not. I used to work at a liquor store in bottle returns. Asian people STRICTLY brought in Heineken. So yea, I don’t believe for a second that overqualified black people are getting denied jobs at breweries. The people you see in those pictures would love nothing more than some diversity, but it just doesn’t happen on its own.

Coincidentally one of the loan breweries that wasn’t smeared and defamed on her viral posts was Notch Brewing.

Meanwhile places like Wormtown are losing business and getting destroyed online because of these viral allegations.

Given the ubiquity of Wormtown in these parts, and the volume of Wormtown stories shared with Brienne, this deserves some awareness and consideration here. Just based on the volume of stories presented, this seems like one of the most serious cases levied against a New England brewery. I for one will not be drinking Wormtown anytime soon.

Wow. I’ve been a regular customer of theirs. Suffice it to say I’ll be looking to spend those dollars elsewhere until this is addressed publicly and making sure Wormtown knows why.

Wormtown’s big crime was that they didn’t get down on their knees and grovel like other breweries did. Search the name Brienne Allan on Facebook and just look at what these businesses from across the country were forced to do.

 

 

 

Brewery ARS’ owner made a post about how he had 3 “females” in his family, so he took sexual harassment seriously.

Here’s a response from a customer.

The brewery is sexist because the owner has 3 daughters who he acknowledges are girls based on their chromosomes and sexual organs. But that was offensive to Kate Eckert because it wasn’t inclusive for chicks with dicks too, therefore she had to lecture him. Instead of standing up for themselves the brewrery cowered, because their clientetele demands it. Does this look like the kind of person who would ever be satisfied with an apology:

Nope. That woman wants to see you grovel.

Of course no attention seeking scam would be complete without the GoFundMe at the end of the rainbow, and Brienne has made over $35K off of her’s. The money is going towards legal fees for an imaginary lawsuit that hasn’t been filed.

Don’t worry, none of these breweries has the balls to sue her. They understand that she has a right to free speech, and that curating and disseminating other people’s accounts protects her legally. They also know what the repercussions would be if they stood up for themselves, which is why they all cowered and virtue signaled. Just throw some money at her an they’re alleviated from their sins.

“As a cis het white dude.”

Nuff said.

Meanwhile Brienne has pocketed a lot of cash and gotten tens of thousands of followers, but she’s earned it because it’s really hard screenshotting messages and posting them on Instagram.

The media has definitely helped amplify her message and profit off of her newfound fame.

Shockingly she’s sought the media out before about this very same topic.

Almost like its a pattern.

    For Christ’s sakes, get the fuck over yourself!! I’ve been a bartender for 26 years. It’s the nature of the business. Too hot in the kitchen? Get the hell out.

    Many moons ago I made a deal with myself, verbal harassment? Wait til the end of the night, count your goddamn tips THEN see how much it bothers you. When your bring-home is $50-$100+ per hour and it still bothers you? You’re too weak for the industry and more suited to scan groceries at Market Basket.

    If someone PHYSICALLY harasses you it’s a completely different ballgame. If a customer pulled that shit where I work now he’d be removed head first out the door by my manager or one of our bouncers. If you have a coworker, owner, manager, etc that pulls that? Quit. Fast. If you chose to stay? You’re a dumbass that knows you suck at your job and probably should bail on the industry all together.

    I’m sick and tired of the younger generations and their victim-status, PC-culture, everyone gets a trophy, poor-me, bullshit. Truth? You’re too soft for the industry and should get the fuck out.

    I used to date this chick.
    No lie. We were fucking one time and she thrusted her middle finger into my butt as hard as she could.
    It hurt, I said I don’t like that please stop. She kept doing it anyway. My ass was bleeding the next day. She claimed she was blackout drunk and doesn’t remember.

    She is a fucking rapist

    What is that godamned thing on her neck? Nobody without one or more psychological disorders defiles their body like that, hope she gets help fast and finds a deal on laser tattoo removal.

    She reminds me of the my miserable sister-in-law. Perhaps miserable isn’t strong enough. Horrific falls short but that’s the strongest I can find to describe her.

    She is the most unhappy, selfish, self-centered, useless, angry, mean, lazy, uncaring person I’ve ever met, and I’ve met many.

    She has no friends, is an alcoholic that has ruined her health to the point where she is now in a wheelchair. No one likes her. I mean no one, except my brainwashed brother who’s been married to her for 40 years. She’s even ruined him. Destroyed his credit, drove friends and family away. Treats him like shit. But he stays with her. No idea why. She refuses to work, even before her health went bad. She is the nastiest piece of vile shit I’ve ever met. She has NO redeeming qualities whatsoever. Not one. When she dies, her funeral will resemble a ghost town. No one will miss her. At all.

    Now, what makes me think of her when I see this craft beer pig?

    It’s the bitch face. Even when she’s smiling, she’s not smiling. That’s a 24/7 nasty ass bitch face that cannot be covered up no matter what expression is on it. I’ll bet the bank she is as mean, nasty, and useless as my sister-in-law.

    Sadly, another waste of oxygen.

    She is kinda cute and looks like she still has a decent body, but for some strange reason (daddy issues?) she’s decided to litter her skin with ink which screams “low rent trailer trash”. If it wasn’t for the shitty tats (and attitude) she probably could have used her looks and body to land herself a decent man and have a good life for herself. Now, instead, she’ll have an endless string of men who will simply use her as a cum dumpster and in 10 years she’ll turn into a man-hating lesbian because (SURPRISE!) no decent man will want her.

    I attend a lot of $500+/plate fundraisers in Boston and let me tell you, I virtually *never* see a woman with tats at one of these events (other than the waitstaff). I say virtually never because on an extremely rare occasion someone (usually someone in their 20’s) will bring a date who has tats, and no matter how dolled up she may be, she will still look like trash next to the women in their Dolce cocktail dresses.

    Life teaches you these lessons. I still remember the day when I learned this lesson. I had tickets for a Sox/Yankees game in the 406 Club. At the time, I was “slumming it” with this little slam-pig who was pretty decent looking and had a tight little body (with tats of course) and fucked like a rocket (hence why I wasn’t thinking with my big brain). She was a huge Sox fan and begged me to take her along. Well, I did. What a mistake. Even though she dressed nice and did her best to make herself presentable, it was clear once we were there that, in Sesame Street parlance “One of these things aren’t like the others, one of these things, just don’t belong”.

    Class begets class, and tats on a woman are the antithesis of class, regardless of how much it may have “meaning” to them. Hence the phrase “you can take the woman out of the ghetto but you can’t take the ghetto out of the woman”.

    On an unrelated note, I don’t get the “address people by their genitals” comment. I don’t go around saying “hey, how you doing cheese whiz” or “nice to see you, low-tide”

    WTF is with the tattoo obsession? Don’t you get sick of looking at the same shit on your skin every day?

    They’ll look great when you’re 65.

    Chicks with tats usually get mad when I look at their tats and go ‘Hah’ and say “Oh Boy”

    “Meanwhile Brienne has pocketed a lot of cash and gotten tens of thousands of followers, but she’s earned it because it’s really hard screenshotting messages and posting them on Instagram.”

    Bro, this is like all you do – minus the cash and the followers.

      I thought the same thing except I would substitute “Facebook” for “Instagram”.

    Casual Observations:

    1) This chick litters her body with terrible artwork she’ll regret in 15 years, then complains she’s not taken seriously.
    2) I’d blow a load on her face, regardless of the neck tattoos

    Craft beer is for losers. Who the fuck wants a nutmeg/ lemon beer?

    Can we advertise for a large micro-spew fest and just NUKE them all???
