Equality for women in the work force is stronger than ever, but don’t tell that to the beer industry which has been male dominated for hundreds of years and remains so today. However, things are changing fast and by the hand of the minority. In recognition of International Women’s Day on March 8th, the non-profit organization Pink Boots Society will be throwing their second annual International Women’s Collaboration Brew Day (IWCBD) with over 80 participants from 11 different countries. This year’s style to be mastered – Unite Red Ale. Following the event, over 80 versions of the beer will be released so that fans and supporters around the world can not only try the brew, but join in the cause of supporting women in the beer industry.
To that my friends, I say Cheers!
