Who is Crafting A Strategy?

We are a global community of makers who create experiences that unite people. Our membership includes breweries in 15 countries on four continents. We believe that a highly fragmented, dispersed, and global community of entrepreneurs that rely on wisdom and each other is the best way forward. Our members use technology to stay connected and to overcome geographic and market forces that are stacked against them. 

We use the highest-level business ideas available, translated and made easy to understand, to help you build a business that can make a real difference in your community. We don’t claim to have all the answers, but we know most of them reside inside the heads of our community members. Diversity of people in our community is the key. Big, small, men, women, brewers, lawyers, bankers – with greater diversity of training and vision, our collective can be stronger and more inclusive. 

Required Applicant Qualifications: Any woman, anywhere in the world, who earns at least 25% of her income from the brewing industry, is qualified for Pink Boots Society membership and to apply for any scholarship.  Click here to join or to connect with us.

Due to the nature of the course, the selection committee requires that the applicant be 21 years or older.

Terms & Conditions: All PBS scholarships have a “Pay It Forward” (PIF) requirement, where our scholarship recipients are required to pass on the specific knowledge they gained in their scholarship course to other PBS members and to the industry in general within 6 months of completing the course. This is accomplished through many means like publishing an article, publishing a blog on a reputable website, or giving a presentation at a local, regional or national professional seminar or conference.  Evidence of PIF must be sent to PBS for validation and if applicable, for posting on the PBS website. Many recipients choose to PIF at their local chapter meetings, but you can also present at our annual CBC and GABF meetings. 

All courses require a 50% of the certificate value (up to $500) as a deposit to ensure course participation, completion and 100% passing rates for scholarship recipients. As a condition of accepting the scholarship, the recipient (or recipient’s employer) will pay a $50 USD deposit to Pink Boots Society.  

Please Note: If the recipient fails to successfully complete the course, the deposit and stipend (if applicable) will be forfeited and not reimbursed. Once the PIF is verified, the recipient will receive a Pink Boots Society flannel shirt.

Please note that Scholarship Recipients are announced approximately six weeks after the scholarship application window closes. In this case, the recipient will be announced approximately October 15, 2019.
