The Pink Boots Society® was created to empower women beer professionals to advance their careers in the Beer Industry through Education: We teach each other!

In addition to upcoming seminars held in conjunction with our meetings, such as our GABF meeting seminars consisting of both technical and non-technical programming, we now offer scholarship opportunities to our members. First things first: we got our 501(c) 3 so now we can attract the kinds of donations that will fund these scholarships. We are closer than ever to this goal, so please be patient as we work our way through the maze of IRS requirements.

Other ways you can help: Attend a meeting, attend a seminar, volunteer to teach at a seminar, make a donation or ask your company to donate, spread the PBS word, volunteer to chair a committee, or invent a new committee for yourself, tell other women what is so great about working in the Beer Industry, and most of all, encourage and mentor someone less experienced than yourself.

We are a young organization. Get involved and help us grow! We’re so new that I guarantee you’ll make an impact!
