9. Up until the 1500s, brewing was primarily women’s work. Because the beverage was such a common part of the average person’s diet, fermenting was, for many women, one of their normal household tasks. Some enterprising women took this household skill to the marketplace and began selling beer. They wore the tall, pointy hats so that their customers could see them in the crowded marketplace. They transported their brew in large round pots. They often had cats to keep mice away from the grain. Some argue that iconography we associate with witches, from the pointy hat to the cauldron, originated from women working as master brewers.
