Miller Lite partners with Pink Boots Society in Bad to Good Campaign

Women In Beer

Today, Miller Lite is announcing Bad $#!T to Good $#!T, an initiative creating fertilizer made from old sexist beer advertising that will be used to grow hops for female brewers. The beer brand is teaming up with producer, comedian, actor, and undeniable arbiter of good $#!T, Ilana Glazer, to help amend the industry’s sexist history of beer marketing and rectify the past. They’re turning the age-old, objectifying beer ads (aka bad $#!T) into good $#!T – literally.

Miller Lite is donating $60K to Pink Boots Society and giving members the opportunity to brew with the hop blend they grow by sending them to up to 200 Pink Boots Members (no cost to participate)! Learn more from their press release here and take a look at the announcement in Forbes!

2021 Q2- Yuengling Sponsored: Women in Brewing Scholarship Recipient Announced

Scholarship Recipients

Pink Boots Society and D.G. Yuengling & Son, Inc. are excited to introduce the 2021 recipient of the Yuengling Women in Brewing Scholarship: Stephanie Miracle! Stephanie has selected the Siebel Institute’s WBA Concise Course in Brewing Technology and will be attending in-person this fall.

Stephanie Miracle is the first female brewer of Lexington, KY! She is active at both Country Boy Brewing locations; in Georgetown as a Cellarperson and in Lexington as a Brewer, where she has hosted three Pink Boots Collaboration Brew Days® creating Pink Brut: Strawberry/Hibiscus Brut IPA, Girls Just Wanna Have Plumb: NEIPA with Plumb, and most recently Kentucky Girls: Hoppy Lager. Stephanie was featured on the Boys Are From Marzen: A Women in Beer Podcast as well as an article in Lexington Herald Leader focusing on her recent collaboration with Nappy Roots of Atlantucky Brewery. When Stephanie isn’t busy at the breweries, she enjoys homebrewing and is a member of Brewers of Central Kentucky (BOCK). Stephanie’s main career goal right now is to dig into the minutiae of brewing and fermentation process, and hopes to make a life for herself in the fermented beverage industry. She believes this course will give her a greater, in-depth look at the sciences involved in the brewing process, increasing her knowledge as both a brewer and a cellarperson. Stephanie considers herself a dry sponge, wanting to soak up as much information as she can.

The WBA Concise Course in Brewing Technology covers a similar range of topics as those presented in our advanced-level programs, but at a depth which allows those with only moderate understanding of brewing science and technology to participate in the course. This is an ideal course for those considering entry into the brewing industry, as well as those pursuing a wider knowledge of the business in order to improve their skills and advance in their brewing careers. The course also offers the best way to prepare for our advanced-level programs should you decide to take them at a later date.
