Welcome back to Pink Boots Society’s Member Spotlight! Would you like to nominate a Pink Boots member who has inspired you? A member you think embodies the mission of Pink Boots Society and deserves a shout out? Send nominations to socialmedia@pinkbootssociety.org!

This month we shine the spotlight on Kelly Lohrmeyer! She has been a member for five years, and loves meeting all the exciting and interesting women that share the industry as well as her local San Diego chapter. “These women are a wealth of knowledge on so many fronts and I enjoy getting to see their passion in the ever changing beer market”.

Kelly has gone from Beer Tender, to Beer Rep, to Farm to Table Hop Sales Lady. Currently she works with Yakima Chief Hops, to promote education about how hops grow, are produced, and come to market. She works with brewers to create future contracts to ensure that their Family Farms are able to produce the hops needed each year. She also likes to host informative guild gatherings, “events and what not to promote the continuing education on hops to the Beer community across the USA and Globe”.

San Diego chapter love!

Kelly’s name might sound familiar to you – she is a critical player in the inception of our Yakima Chief Pink Boots Blend! The pink Boots blend started out as a simple chat with Mike Goettl in a Perrault Hop Field. Mike wanted to know how Yakima Chief could help enrich more women’s lives in the beer community, and asked for Kelly’s opinion. “I immediately thought of the Pink Boots! I liked what I saw at the meetings I attended and the amount of cool scholarships offered. What better way to help promote women in beer than to get a hop blend put together that the Pink Boots Society could be proud of to call their own!” This is the third year Yakima Chief has produced a Pink Boots Blend, and it remains the organizations largest fundraiser.

“I am proud that I have been able to work so closely with Farmers over the past 4 plus years. I always wanted to work closely with people who work the land for the betterment of a product. I used to think it would be in food in some sort of farm to table setting. I could not be happier that I landed with the Growers of Yakima Chief Hops. Helping to produce/promote and educate brewers about the best Aroma Hops in the world that go in that tasty beer you may have in your hand!”

Cheers Kelly for all the work you do help educate others during your full time job, as well as the extra time you put in to lifting others through Pink Boots Society!
