And as if that weren't enough, the thirstysisters themselves will be presenting and serving special brews that the ladies have brewed themselves. Revealed only at this event, it will be the only opportunity you will have to taste these one-of-a-kind beers!
The thirstysisters evolved out of a growing desire for women involved in the craft beer industry in the greater Seattle area to come together and pool their resources. With the ever expanding involvement of women in the brewing business, the thirsty sisters recognized a need to not only celebrate their love of craft beer, but also to educate other women on the historical significance of females in the craft beer industry. Through events such as this one planned for Seattle Beer Week, the thirsty sisters hope to bring more women into the fold and foster a vibrant, diverse craft brew community.
