Cicerone BeerSavvy® Scholarship Recipient Announced

The Pink Boots Society is proud to announce that Galit Deviri, co-owner of Beer-D Brewing Supplies in Tel Aviv, Israel, is the recipient of the second 2015 Cicerone BeerSavvy® scholarship.

Chosen by the PBS Scholarship Selection Committee (SSC), five very experienced women beer professionals who hold positions as brewers, educators and writers, they chose Galit to receive this scholarship because although she is one of the few women in the beer industry in Israel she, “is already doing so much to heighten exposure,” and is, “motivated to grow the industry as a whole and for women.”

During the last decade Galit has worked to support Israeli beer culture by opening Beer-D, a craft beer center that imports to Israel and markets all brewing ingredients both for home brewers and craft brewers, holds courses for home brewing and beer tasting workshops, organizes beer brewing competitions and helps home brewers with recipe formulation. The Israeli craft beer industry is on its initial steps and by taking this course Galit intends to, “strengthen my status as professional authority so I can continue my efforts in marketing the women role in this industry.”

In 2014 she participated in International Women’s Collaboration Brew Day, IWCBD, and donated the proceeds to single parent mothers. Currently she’s working with Tuborg Israel on a project for International Women’s Day and as part of that plans to connect them to IWCBD. She’s looking forward to opening opportunities to promote the female voice in the “menly” Israeli craft beer scene.

The Cicerone BeerSavvy® Course is comprehensive self-paced online beer training course designed to enhance knowledge of brewing techniques, beer styles, understanding flavors and off-flavors, food pairings and the language to clearly discuss beer. The course is beneficial for many people who work in the beer industry including those who are educating others about beer.

In addition to attending the course, Galit will receive a pair of pink steel-toe rubber boots when she fulfills the Pay It Forward requirement associated with the scholarship.
