Yesterday, March 8th, was International Women’s Day. You can follow the hashtags such as #WomensDay and #InternationalWomensDay (and more) for further celebrations of women throughout the world. This post is to highlight my limited awareness of the awesome badass women in the beer industry. A few breweries released beers in celebration of women. Breweries also welcomed multiple women in the beer industry to their facility to collaboratively brew a beer. Some of these beers are independently brewed and some are brewed through the organization of the Pink Boots Society, an organization created to assist, inspire and encourage women beer industry professionals to advance their careers through education (text is from their website).
Here are a few highlights in the beer industry that celebrated International Women’s Day.
Lone Pine Brewery went down to Exhibit A Brewing in Framingham, MA to brew a collaborative beer with them and few other local women homebrewers.
Austin Street Brewery brewed their Glitter ‘N’ Grit Dragonfruit Gose and released it during International Women’s Day. It’s a dragonfruit gose made with blood orange, 5.6% ABV. They’re serving it in their two tasting rooms, even with salted rims.
Grateful Grain Brewing Company traveled to Boothbay Craft Brewery to brew a collaborative beer through The Pink Boots Society.
There are many more events, beers & women to highlight in this post throughout the world in the beer industry. These are only a few of them. Keep celebrating women around you in whatever industry you’re in.
