Unfair’ rules: The trade group representing California craft breweries has sued Gov. Gavin Newsom and the state’s public health officer alleging that the July requirement that brewery customers buy a meal before they could consume beer was discriminatory. California Craft Brewers Association filed the lawsuit Thursday in federal court in Los Angeles, claiming the food requirement imposed on breweries, but not wineries, violated the equal protection clause under the 14th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. None of the roughly 30 Sonoma County breweries have closed during the pandemic, but two local beer taprooms that didn’t serve food did shut their doors, according to a Press Democrat report.

G3: The G3 (Gather, Grow and Go) women’s conference group has created a new 2021 Women’s Circle. “There hasn’t been a more important time to reset, reframe and refocus our intentions and energy,” says co-founder Michelle Dale. The intention is “to foster a community of women who are committed to taking time for themselves, in an effort to renew their sense of purpose and realign with their values.” The circle is an eight-part series of virtual interactive engagements, led by women who are experts in their respective fields, and will focus on topics that “ignite inspiration and cultivate connections.” The sessions will focus on Health & Wellness, Financial Growth, Professional Growth, Goal Setting & Values, Grief & Healing, Family & Friend Relationships, Stress Management & Balance, Navigating the Virtual World, and Communication & Connection.
