pike celebrates women in beer

from pike brewing:

WOMEN IN BEER 

Pike Brewing Company will again present Women In Beer on May 11 from 6-9 pm. Don't miss this event, always one of the highlights of Seattle Beer Week. Mark your calendars now for this celebration of women in their current and historic roles in the production, preparation, and marketing of beer, wine, spirits, cider, and artisan food. The event benefits Planned Parenthood of the Great Northwest. Last year 300 guests attended and we heard from many that it was their favorite, and one of the busiest Seattle Beer Week events.  

BOOST YOUR BREWSTER
The first beers were brewed by priestesses thousands of years ago. Beer goddesses reign supreme in early mythology, and it was a nun who gave us hops. Ale wives were the first brew pub operators, yet as soon as beer became industrialized it became masculinized, that is, until the craft beer renaissance. On March 8th, women around the world took part in International Women's Collaboration Brew Day.  Six breweries in Seattle hosted collaboration brews. At Pike's gravity flow steam brewery, the women from North Sound Brewing, Odin Brewing, Spinnaker Bay Brewing and Pike collaborated on a fantastic red rye ale. Monica Spain of KPLU radio spent the day at Pike to interview the women brewers and to document the process. Days later, KPLU listeners were treated to a delicious story-a great aperitif for a cool, Unite Red Rye Ale.
Please unite with us at woman owned, Spinnaker Bay Brewing today, Friday, April 10 from 6-11 PM, for the  official release party for Unite Red Ale. Meet the women, priestesses all, who participated, along with the men that stood behind them, and share the pride of bringing beer back to its roots. Join us to Boost your Brewsters!

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the beers benefits Pink Boots Society
, a 501(c)3 charitable organization created to empower women beer professionals to advance their careers in the beer industry through education.
