Several papers report that a drinker has won a discrimination case against a brewery after he was stopped from buying its “women-only” beer at one of its bars.

According to the Mirror:

Thomas Bower, 27, had wanted a Pink IPA, but was offered the brewer’s signature Punk IPA – which was 20% more expensive, to highlight the gender pay gap.

The Mail says:

… he was only given the cheaper ale – satirically dubbed “beer for girls” – after telling staff he “identified as a woman”.

The Telegraph reports:
