Women’s Year for Beer
Whereas, craftbeer.com estimates that women account for 25% of beer consumption by volume in the United States; and
Whereas, women account for 37% of total craft beer consumption; and
Whereas, 39% of brewery workers are women; and
Whereas, Willibrew thinks this is a pretty great trend; we declare 2017
THE WOMEN’S YEAR FOR BEER!
What does that mean? Our Women’s Year for Beer idea evolved in October when our crack team of brainstormers got together to review our 2017 events calendar. Would we keep the Halloween Bash? You bet. Holiday Beer Dinner? Mhmm! Boom Box Parade festivities? No doubt. But how about something different? How about we mix things up? More than 1/3 of the Willibrew Crew are of the female persuasion. We guessed that at least that many ladies are our guests. So, with that in mind we thought it would be fun to organize a series of events geared to the Ladies of Willibrew (and the fellas, too!) that bring in faces of the beer industry in our state. Cicerone’s, Brewers, the Pink Boots Society and CT Girls Pint Out.
Check out what we have lined up so far and keep checking back, we’ll be adding events throughout the year!
