Scholarship Recipients, Women In Beer

Pink Boots Society and D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc. are excited to announce the 2020 Diversity in Brewing Scholarship recipient, Victoria Rooney! This scholarship was created to support individuals from underrepresented groups who are passionate about the brewing/fermentation industry and looking to further their education, technical skills and knowledge, and leadership skills. The educational offerings that were included in this scholarship are: PA College of Technology Brewing & Fermentation Science Program, University of South Florida Brewing Arts Program, HACC Brewing Sciences Certificate Program, Philadelphia University of the Sciences Brewing Science Certificate, Siebel Institute WBA Concise Course in Brewing Technology, and the eCornell University Women in Leadership Certificate.

Joining the Pink Boots Society has opened Victoria Rooney’s eyes to a whole new world of opportunities, especially during her first Pink Boots Collaboration Brew Day®, where she met more women brewers and brewery owners than she ever could have imagined. Victoria holds several roles at Wolf Branch Brewery, including taproom manager, cellar woman, social media and events coordinator, and bartender. In 2019, she earned the “Best Bartender” award, along with Wolf Branch Brewing as the Best Craft Brewery from Lake and Sumter County Best of the Best. Victoria aspires to become a head brewer and dreams of one day opening her own brewery. She believes that this course will provide her with the professional knowledge and confidence required to make the transition to brewery operations and to be well-rounded in the craft brewing Industry. She is passionate about helping women to have a strong and respectable presence and looks forward to sharing what she learned with other members of Pink Boots Society.
